Yesterday I had the privilege of playing host to Claire and Michelle for our monthly quilting day! Jacqui from Magpie Chic (another local blogger I have been following for a while) joined us, it was the first time I have met her and she is even lovelier in person, you really must go over and check out her beautiful blog!

Claire surprised us big time with the amount of finishes she had this month, just look at them all…

I think I will have to make one too, I’ll just add it to my list ;o) Michelle has been working her way through Tis the Season (sorry no photo’s, yet!) I am pleased to say I have started too, not sure that I will be able to keep up with these girls they are speedy!

I forgot to take photo’s of my show and tell, so I will share those in another post;o)

I can share some of the goodies that have been arriving in the mail though, it’s been a good weekOpen-mouthed smile (Do you like my smiley face, not sure how I did that, Lol) Anyway…

I have been eyeing this book up for a while now, The Civil War Sewing Circle by Kathleen Tracy. Not only has it got beautiful quilts to make but it also tells a story, with excerpts from letters written during the civil war.

I also have a couple of other books arriving in the next day or so (can’t quite remember what I ordered now, Lol I guess I’ll surprise myself!)

If you are wondering where I’ve been shopping it’s here at The Book Depository they have a huge selection and they have free worldwide delivery! You might just want to go and make yourself another cuppa before you pop over to have a look!

Have fun…

What wonderful goodies you've bought. I have been wondering what the Tilda books are like - they do look lovely! A day stitching with friends - sounds perfect.

So lovely to meet you the other day.
Loved your home and that FABULOUS wardrobe full of fabric. And the bunting, and the china, and the quilts and, and, and...
I am looking forward to next month, when I will be organised for stitching.
