As well as those little finishes, I have been busy making kits for Stitching on the Lake which is just next week. Looking forward to seeing everyone soon.

Lovely to see some special stitching at Hobbysew last week. Maryanne came to social stitching on Tuesday and was working on this wonderful quilt made all with 1/2" hexagons.

I shouldn't be starting anything new but just couldn't resist Lynette Anderson's new Button club project, Anderson's Farm. Hobbysew is getting the patterns so it was just too easy to join up and also to bring home the first block on Saturday. Sunday afternoon was lovely and quiet so I did the applique on the first block.

Another week is almost over! It was good fun starting classes again this week and especially catching up with everyone after such a long break. So inspiring to see the show and tell. Lynda has been very busy and has been working on her zippered pouch. The back of it has been stitched in half inch hexagons!
My copy of Homespun came today with the first instalment of Foxley Village, another lovely quilt by Natalie Bird.
As everything started this week, I also had the first meeting of my Book Club. We met at Jo's house and we just loved these amazing cushions which were cross stitched in Jordan.

We headed to the Australia Day Fireworks and here are some great photos taken by my resident photographer!
Bruce also took this wonderful photo in our garden.
I can't believe that January has flown by already. I have been busy stitching for our Stitching on the lake days coming up in just a few weeks. There are still places for both days, 20th February and 5th March. Here is a little sneak peak of one of the six projects.

Classes start next week and I have been busy making some of the lovely projects in Anni Downs' new book, The Story of My Day. I stitched quite a few of them while I was away and enjoyed some time over the weekend making them up! This is the very cute little stitching pouch.

Just a reminder that registrations are due in the next week or so for Stitching on the Lake. We are running 2 days on Saturday 20 February and Saturday 5 March and there are still places on both dates at the moment. Fiona and I are busy creating some lovely projects for you to make. Come along and enjoy some stitching time, lots of chat and a delicious lunch, morning and afternoon tea. For details please email me here. Here are some pictures of our recent days.
I did manage some stitching on the cruise. Mind you I packed enough for several months!!! I had a lovely time stitching some of the projects from Anni Downs' new book, The Story of my Day. We are using this book in my afternoon classes at Hobbysew this coming term.
