A Stitch in Time

Hello Friends

The weather is cooling down, making any spare time, the perfect time for stitching.

The weekend away in Talbingo & some time off from work has renewed my enthusiasm. I feel invigorated; I just want to sew & sew & well....sew!! Being at work makes that impossible so I've been doing lots of Blog reading, Instagram viewing (remember you can follow me at lmg065) and of course stitching when I can. Work really does intefere with doing nice things - but then it does pay for it so extremely necessary.

Here are a few photo's of what I've been up to.

Stitching in the warm on Anzac Day. I love these tins, recipients of the Anzac Biscuits they contained enjoyed them too.

More Diamonds & Stars

 Centre panel of 2012 Challenge Quilt (yes I'm late) ready to remove papers & stitch on to a background piece. Next up a border of Flying Geese...
Some prep for the Flying Geese, I haven't done these before so am going with the 4 blocks at a time with no leftover method. Thankyou to fellow QWE JulieAnn for assisting in working it all out.

This is "Red" my 2014 Ford Fiesta. 
My big happy event since last time, she represents the brand new shiny start in my life.

And yes this me is: Very Happy!!

Also slowly progressing is Baskets, some more prep done at Talbingo
  21 Complete.....so many more to do
And my Angus, smooching with his Mum.

That's about it for now, I need a weekend at home to get into the flying geese before there is anymore show & tell from me.
Wishing all the Mum's, especially mine, a Very Happy Mothers Day. Hope you all get spoilt & spend it with those you love or at least have a day doing what you love.
Happy Stitching, til Next Time
