Lovely work

 We are now in lockdown here in Canberra too. We have been so lucky here really, so we must try and do our best to stay home and stop that dreaded virus! So lots of time and just need to find a little motivation to get going on my many projects. We just managed to have our stitching catchups on Wednesday. Roni has been so busy. Last week she had made these delightful Christmas cushions.

This week she had finished this beautiful box designed by Lynette Anderson. Roni chose to put hers onto a steamer which looks fantastic (and was a little easier than making the zippered box).

Beth has been busy stitching these lovely Christmas pictures too.

In the evening, Barbara brought in her beautiful finished quilt for her eldest grandson. What a lucky boy!
I just love the label and the matching cushion.

What have I been doing. A few weeks ago we celebrated a dear friend's birthday and were giving her some spending money so I thought she needed this little purse.
I am hooked on stitching these little cuties from Tiny Treasures by Kathy Schmitz. I am planning on making a hexi quilt.

And finally, here is the cardigan that was partly knitted about 30 years ago. The Handmade mag is dated 1991! I was worried the fudged sleeves wouldn't fit. It is a bit on the short side but hope I can get away with it.

Fresh air

 We went for a walk on Saturday to celebrate a friend's birthday. We headed to Tidbinbilla and enjoyed a lovely day out. I, being very unfit, didn't make it to the top but did walk part of the way enjoying a chat along the way. 

And here is the birthday boy and cake. The two of us that didn't make it to the top still got some delicious cake.
