Stitching away

I have been stitching. My Stitch Therapy is up to date! Here are some recent blocks.

 I also finished my chatelaine by Anni Downs started at Stitch the Day away in Queensland.
 We had the little miss last Tuesday and we had an adventure on the bus to the library and the shops. It was good fun and there was a bit of reading on the way home.

We managed to get a few pictures with the kids and Ma and even us!

Ma is on her way home now on the train....actually she would be nearly there. She is amazing for 88 years old!

It has been special to have Ma visiting this week. She had her second cataract repaired last week and she is doing amazingly well. We went to a new park with the grandchildren and their mums on Thursday. It was a perfect, warm day for it. The kids had a great time and ended up filthy! That is a sure sign of a good time.

The Thursday group headed into Floriade for our end of term morning tea/lunch. It was a perfect day for it. I even caught the bus in which was very convenient. We enjoyed yummy food, good company and the lovely flowers.

Stitching progress...

A few weeks ago, Jayne shared her beautiful version of Seaside Town with us at Wednesday stitching. It is so special and Jayne has quilted it so well. I just love Jayne's fabric choices and those little houses are so lovely!

 I have been keeping up with my Stitch Therapy 365 blocks and we are up to about 265! I am still enjoying this process very much.

 I have also been working on my chatelaine, which was Anni's project from our lovely weekend away.

 I also like to have an ongoing project in the sewing room. This quilt was started in about 2007 and now it is being put together. It is Teddy's Garden Treasures by Libby Richardson! All the stitcheries were done in the year that I bought the BOM!
