Gorgeous cross stitch

Lynn came into Hobbysew this week and showed me the beautiful cross stitch that she stitched while overseas recently. They were both so beautifully stitched.

 Here are some of Bruce's lovely photos of the spring flowers.

After a few really hot days, we are back to cool again today! Bit of a shock after 30 degrees on Tuesday!

A little stitching

I have been stitching a little lately in between getting my Stitching on the Lake projects done. I have prepared the hexagons that are needed for this zippered pouch by Hugs and Kisses.
 Marg Low is going to try and make a decoration each week till Christmas. I thought it was a good idea so started stitching these little decorations by Lynette Anderson. Here is one all done! Marg has made a gorgeous little felt pudding.

Family time

Monday was a public holiday here is Canberra and so we headed to a park to spend some time with the family. Ma is visiting this week so it was lovely to see her too. The weather was perfect for a picnic morning tea.

 It was special to see Lois and Phoebe and their parents and Auntie Janelle too. Didn't get photos of everyone as it was a little busy with all the little ones.

Nature's Journey quilt

There has been so much machine sewing happening here. I just had to get my top made for the Stitch-a-long blog by the end of September and here it is! It was a big job but worth it to have this quilt top ready!

Tulip Top Gardens

We headed out to Tulip Top gardens yesterday and even though it was very chilly, the sun was shining and the flowers were gorgeous. We enjoyed the sausage sandwich provided and then feasted on yummy food that everyone brought along. It was a lovely day out.
 We bumped into the birthday girl, Roz, there too!

 We were trying to remember when we went there before. It was in 2007! I was checking my blog books to find it but I didn't blog back then! Some of us were there both times.

So good to see some lovely stitching on Wednesday this week. Karen has finished her amazing felt applique cushion from a pattern by Wendy Williams.
 Jan was working on this lovely embroidery.
 Marlene has finished her little foundation pieced hanging and has done a great job.
 She has also framed her cross stitch ready for Christmas.
 I have been stitching too but on some secret projects for our Stitching on the lake days coming up on 31st October and 7th October. The days are filling up but there are still places at the moment. If you are interested in coming email me. Today I thought I had best start cutting up the hundreds of little 2" squares for the borders on Nature's Journey. The top is due to be finished at the end of this month!
 I have also been stitching this lovely Hugs and Stitches design called Two French Kisses. It has been lovely stitching with the variegated Cottage Garden perle thread.
