Once a month I spend an afternoon catching up with my lovely stitching friends. Last year we only managed to get together a handful of times but so far this year we're sticking to the monthly routine.
It's such an enjoyable way to spend a Saturday afternoon - stitching (some of us do!), laughing, snacking and cuppas, and plenty of chit chat about what is happening in our daily lives.
So a round up from Saturday's session: my stitching project, another in the Country Cottage Needleworks ornament series, don't you just love the spotty fabric :)
The lovely Kath :)
Kath was stitching on a Cats Whiskers design using a very pretty thread.
One of Kath's neat project bags.
Wendy is going great on her kitty cats cross stitch, we give her lots of encouragement with all those colour changes.
This is Clare's little stitching project - from the Stoney Creek magazine.
Dear Wendy, the birthday girl, who celebrated her birthday on Sunday and she's started a new job this week.
Yay, welcome to the project bag club Wendy - Kath made this one for Wendy.
And my gift for Wendy was a little "door hanger" using a stitchery by Natalie Bird.
I chose some cute Lynette Anderson fabric to finish it and added a little gathered frill (idea from here)
Another brilliant afternoon with the ladies. Friends, food, and stitching together, makes for a happy time don't you think?
See you soon xx
