Happy Weekend!

Hope you all have a fun time - I still haven't tested my sewing skills to any degree, so I really have nothing new and exciting to show you!

I have been doing lots of browsing and that in itself is fun - lots of bright, fresh ideas out there! I did have a lovely day last Tuesday at Diane's with Girlfriends! Pattie brought along a jar of yummy cookies - now how good is this? - what a way to 'bring along a plate' - all adorned in a beautiful red spotted ribbon!

Hmmm, here's me whingeing about wanting/needing a new camera! I think this glorious plant has photographed pretty well with my a la cheapie Canon Ixus 70 - it was a dull, drizzly day and the plant was on a darkish front porch and I was out on the footpath! Now, just maybe, I should be spending my money on lots more beautiful fabrics for one-day, lol!
Happy stitching!

Love the red poka dotty bow! I'm sure it made the cookies taste even better.

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

Fabric always win and has to come in first--especially if there is a working camera already on duty!!!!
Your pictures are lovely--I love taking plant pictures and I love seeing plant pictures on other blog site--so thanks--

Lurline,
I hope you don't mind. I did a row of girls similar to those in your header for my girlfriend. 6 of us sew together and we are doing row robins for each other. Her row from me has 6 girls and one on the end waving, then hearts on each side of the girls. She'll delight in it (it's a secret 'til Christmas).
Thank you for SO much inspiration.~

Hi Lurline, glad to read that all went well. You blow me away with what you achieve even with a 'bung' shoulder. I wish I could spend more time in your company soaking up your knowledge and enthusism. You'll be back on the needle in no time. Cheers and keep smiling
