Another great Monday with Friends and BLS forgetfulness!!!!!

I love my Mondays, when I can gather together with great friends and share gorgeous stitching, wonderful food, lots of laughs and girl talk

Michelle was our host yesterday and whilst travelling to her place, I encountered a bit of stormy weather!

but it was definitely worth it to share time with my crafty buddies…..

Michelle  finished stitching the binding on her gorgeous bubba quilt she has been working on to send to a relative’s new little boy in England

How cute is that little teddy with his ribbon necktie????

and Barb came along too….she was working on this gorgeous Gail Pan design…aren’t those little birdies just beautiful????  and I love the variegated blue thread….Cottage Garden….can’t remember what she called it but it’s on my search and find list!!!!

and I kept working on my Smee Designs ‘The Street” Block

Can’t show you what Jen got up to…..it’s secret squirrel stuff…..but I can tell you she’s been working on a brilliant new design which I just know you’re going to love….we oohed and aahed over it yesterday and were just in awe over how she drew up the designs in front of our very eyes!!!!   I can tell you though you’ll need to watch THIS SPACE so you can find out what she’s been up to…..truly…..you won’t want to miss this one!!!!!

And it wouldn’t be a stitchy Monday without some specatular food……

Michelle whipped up some absolutely delicious tuna patties with homemade chilli sauce and the most amazing trifle…..

we all went back for seconds….and thirds!!!!!!!  I think Michelle’s onto a winner with this one!

And before long, the day was over……Jen had to leave early as Miss Blossom was sick with the flu and needed some ‘get me better’ supplies….it was sad to see her leave so soon……

If you can, make sure you take time to spend crafty time with the best of girl-friends…….it really is good for the soul!!!!!  (and if you can’t……blog and stitch with us all ‘virtually’ !!!!! – it’s nearly as good!)

Everyone is so busy getting things done - it's a wonder we have time to cook, and what a lovely meal it was. Sharing time with my bestie on Tuesday. So I'm only a little jealous this time :) Wish everyone had besties to share time with. It cures most of what ails us :)

~Laurie~ said...

Exactly what I was thinking - so jealous (yet happy for you)! Sounded amazing :)

Anthea said...

Wendy I do envy your stitching days (& the yummy food too!)...
I'm afraid that I am a Lone Stitcher, the eyes of my closest friends glaze over at the thought of a needle & thread! x

I'm so glad that you had a great time....so was it seconds and thirds of the dessert or the tuna patties.

Farm Quilter said...

So jealous of your Vitamin F time! Love sewing with my bee group...but they are now 3,000 miles away from me. Could you possibly get Miss Michelle to give up her recipe for the tuna patties with the homemade chile sauce AND her trifle??? I just ate dinner and this is making my mouth water!

Michelle Ridgway said...

Beautiful projects by everyone. It is such a lovely way to spend time...with good friends x

Barb said...

It was a lovely day with everyone!!
I can only join in when I'm off work, and I really do look forward to it!!!!!
That thread is called Peacock, number 1201. It's lovely in the flesh!!
Hugs N kisses
Barb :)
