More lovely stitching...and some exciting news

Sue has just finished this great quilt for her daughter who is a wonderful netball player. It includes pieces of her netball uniforms and lots of lovely memorabilia of her netball days. What a lovely gift. The quilting was done with balls and hoops!!!

 Sue also finished these 2 bags. The first is made with felted wool fabric and is a pattern by Anni Downs. The second is a gift for her other daughter. They both look lovely, Sue.

I have been stitching too and have been trying to finish the lovely projects that we started on the cruise recently. This is the Heartfelt chateleine by Robyn Alexander. It is all done other than some beady bits at the point of the scissor keeper and on the scissor dolly.
This is the inside of the needlebook. Might stitch my name on the pansy label yet.
I have loved working on this piece by Gary Clarke. Just added the beads the other night and it needs sewing together. Can' wait to do another of these. We were given 3 in our kits and this is the small one!
Check out Fiona's blog as she has announced our exciting news. We have been invited to teach on next year's stitching cruise to New Zealand. It has been a secret for a while but check out the website to see all the 21 tutors for next year. Can you see us in the photos below when we were doing Yvette Stanton's workshop?

Best show you some pictures of Benny and Sammy too. They are growing up so beautifully and are over 7 months now. They have decided I am very funny and laugh at me!!! I minded them both awake for a while the  other morning and it was busy but a real joy. 

 Check out this little man with food all over his face! He likes to rub his eyes while he eats! Just as well it was nearly bath time.
