Wednesday stitching

We had another lovely Wednesday of stitching at Hobbysew this week. Donna has stitched some amazing embroidered flowers onto a dressing gown for a friend's daughter-in-law who is expecting a baby soon. What a special thought to make a gift for the mum!
Isn't Donna's stitching beautiful? She stitched on the pockets, lapel and even a few bits on the tie.
I couldn't resist taking a photo of Donna's gorgeous wrap! These lovely flowers were stitched all over it!
While we were at the shop, there was a presentation of a machine prize to Karen! She had gone into a competition which made blocks for a good cause and ended up winning this lovely Elna machine. Karen was very excited.
So good to see the afternoon stitching girls again after our break over the holidays. Karen came and had finished her beautiful pouch made using the pattern by Leanne Beasley.
In the evening, we were so pleased to see Barbara's "Tis the Season" all pieced and ready to quilt! It looks so beautiful. Barbara has used some French General fabric for her borders.
