New Sewing Group

I have joined a new sewing group called the Green Dragons which is held at Michelle DeGroot's Studio not that far from where i live.
I was lucky to see her new puppy she was so cute and everyone was giving her lots of cuddles in between hand sewing or machine sewing.
I learnt so much and Michelle was only too happy to answer any questions we had about sewing,machine needles,etc.
Such a lovely group and i was made very welcome,cant wait till the next sit and sew,lol.

Michelle is a textile arstist and she also paints and draws and she had quite a few beautiful pics as she had just had an exhibition last weekend while the arts trail was on.

And i might shock you all i did do some work in between chatting,lol

My friend Brenda just had a tattoo done on her arm and the initials are of her Grand Children.
Brenda also just bought herself a lovely bag which i thought was beautiful it had a cat on the front.

I also bought these mesh stencils and some chalk powder ,hope this will help with my FMQ,think i will do what my budyy Fiona suggested and make a cushion cover so i can use the stencils.

Hope you all have a wonderful day .

Last Saturday we had the Golden Plains Arts Trail out our way and my friend Brenda had a stall,so i kept her company for awhile.Brenda is very clever making all sorts of crafts her homemade cards were amazing and her quilts and book bags were all so beautifully made.

I also got my xmas bunting pressed and top stitched ready for the binding now.

I also did this stitchery which i had had for awhile.

 And i was inspired when visiting Nikki Tervo's shop with this cute decorations.This pattern is called Round owl stitchery and has a preprinted fabric in it so you are ready to start and its only $5 what a bargain.
I have 3 of these different designs to do ,they stitch up in a couple of nights,so hopefully i will have 3 new decorations in the next couple of days.

Hope your day is a good one.

Show & Tell

I was lucky to be able to see Michelle's beautiful projects in person and felt very special that Michelle let me take pics.

There was eye candy in every corner of her beautiful home.

I felt so at home here and could've sat for ages just taking it all in.

Thankyou Michelle for sharing your home with us and for the lovely lunch you made and it was great to catch up with Gary too.
Hope your day is a good one.

We were lucky that Cheryll and i had all day to spend with Michelle ,so she very kindly drove us up to Spring Bluff Railway Station and we had a lovely morning tea there in a little Dutch cafe and we caught up Fiona there.

Then Fiona drove us up to the Quilter's Angel in Highfields,it was a lovely spot and was like a little English village a very pretty place.
How lovely is Cheryll she nursed my broken ankle while we were in the car as it had swollen with the heat.not many friends would hold your foot ,lol,thankyou Cheryll.

And these are my purchases from the lovely Steph from Quilter's Angel who just happens to be Fiona's neighbour.

Then we went to Fiona's home and had a lovely lunch and got the chance to check out Fiona's lovely sewing room.

I also got the chance to check out Fiona's new sewing chair,it was very comfortable ,now i remembered something about her hiding her goodies under the seat so i checked it out and she had hidden gifts for us under the seat,lol,she said she knew i would look there,lol.

I was lucky to receive lovely gifts from Michelle and Fiona,those M&M's were a lovely treat.

Cheryll and i  were also very lucky that we had the Monday to spend with Michelle as well and she took us to Eastcoast fabrics and i might've had a big spendup,lol,that trolly of fabrics in front of cheryll may or may not of been mine,lol.

I was so pleased with my purchases these fabrics were $5.95 and i also bought some lovely white linen to stitch on and some insul brite for making oven mitts and lots of zips as i find this size hard to get where i go.

Then Michelle made us a lovely lunch and we chatted till it was time for Michelle to take us to the airport,thankyou so much Michelle and Fiona for the lovely time spent with you both.

Hope your day is a good one.
