Catch up!

I think I've been MIA... and I'll be in trouble with Chooky and Googygirl if I don't do a post!!
I signed up for SSCS again this poor secret santa will think I don't exist.
So a quick catch up.... what have I been up to?

Recently I did a workshop with the lovely Carolyn Pearce at our local Embroiderer's group.
This is what we were making...Exquisite thimble holder, tape measure case, and thread cutter cover.
Little violets stitched in a thread painting technique.

 This is how much I got done!!!!....I'm working on it!

 I've been away at a conference ...worked away at Inverell for a week... Then..

Last weekend I was treated out to a 'Sparkling Afternoon Tea' at Gunner's Barracks  at Mosman (Sydney) by my three gorgeous girls for a belated birthday. It was fabulous! ...Magnificent harbour views yummy food and great company...(I think my little finger got tired having to hold it out!!)

 A little playing with hexi's today. Liberty fabrics from the stash and 3/4" hexagons.
Its a baby quilt for a beautiful little Miss Audrey. (not sure about the dark pink border though)

 And dreaming of my next project .. in repro have been gathering..

 Its a lovely wet day here today so decided to do some dressmaking too... its only been waiting a year ....or two.....

 I'm rather excited about this space..... tomorrow ...My new kitchen goes in!!

Anyone near Cassillis  this Friday is welcome to join a few bloggers for a stitching lunch at 'Plough Inn to Cassillis' Cafe..... It would be great to see you there!

    The embroidery looks exquiste. (I hope I spelt that right. There's no spell check in these comment boxes.) Far beyond my skill level though, but that doesn't stop me from admiring it.
