A girls day out…

This was my third time getting together with the girls(the other Michelle, Jacqui, Claire and her Mum Nancy) and it is fast becoming one of the highlights of my month!

This time we visited Nancy’s lovely home and were absolutely spoilt! I ate far too much, but that’s OK cos everyone knows when the girls get together to stitch calories don’t count right? ;oS Her walls are covered in the most beautiful cross stitch!

Quilts on every bed and beautiful furniture…

Claire’s Tis the Season quilt all finished!  If you read my previous post you will know my efforts were pretty dismal, I am slowly getting there though, one more stitchery to go!

It was also Claire’s birthday we celebrated 2 days early. Michelle made her this gorgeous candle jar…

I made Claire some bunting, sorry but I forgot to take a photo of her with it but it is just like the one I made for Ruffles birthday here.

I have already started on this months project, I have chosen the fabrics, all from my stash I might add and have almost finished cutting it all out, so I am off to to some more and hopefully start sewing them together.

I found our girls day out very inspiring! What inspires you?

Happy stitching…

Michelle

What a lovely home you were able to spend the day in! Nancy must be an incredibly busy lady. What inspires me is looking at everyones beautiful projects on their blogs!! Crafting time has been pretty lean lately for me so it's nice to at least enjoy what others are up to. Have fun on that new project tonight.

Gee Michelle you have put the pressure on already-cut out this months project!!!!! I bet you have half sewn it already? I had a great day and it's a monthly highlight for me too!!
Happy stitching, Michelle.
