It’s May already……

Another busy few weeks, where does the time go?

A finish for this wall hanging.  I enjoyed the machine quilting, so perhaps I’m beginning to feel more comfortable doing it?

Recently while trawling Pinterest, I found some ideas for fridge magnets and originally I thought miniature pieced blocks would look great, then I remembered these stitcheries and the rest as they say is history!

These are two more orphaned stitchery blocks, and with a few ‘tools’ and a couple of pre stretched canvas frames, another two UFO’s are finished and ready for display during the festive season!

I’m really on a roll with these canvas frames, I found a great art supplies place close to work and I picked up a few more to take another couple of stitchery blocks in waiting!

Our grand children are growing so fast and keeping us entertained at the same time.  Brooklynn says the funniest things and Quinn is very ticklish and I love hearing him chuckle.

It’s really busy and the work is very interesting. It’s in the city and I am enjoying the train commute as I get to catch up on my reading on the trip to and from.

A ten minute walk from the station gets my step count up and I love going out at lunch time to browse the shops or have my lunch in a nearby park, this autumn weather is very addictive!

That’s about all my news for now, thanks for visiting,

You're sure creating some lovely things. I'm quite smitten with that matryoshka dolls quilt. Good for you to have achieved FMQing you like! You make truly lovely things. And I'm glad to hear you're employed, doing something you find interesting. Certainly the place you work looks very nice. Continue to enjoy life, as it sounds like you are!

Hope I can get the same feel for the machine quilting,Julie. Still practising. Tea staining sounds like a good idea for the tray cloth. We are also enjoying this beautiful autumn weather. Love all your stitcheries and the canvas frames are a good idea too. Di.
