I am waiting for family to arrive, and then it will be lots of fun with 4 of our Grandies. Lots of cuddles, laughter, eating, playing, chocolates.
I was pleased with my progress from FNSI. I finished the embroidery for the Preston Bag, which was Dawn's project at our Lets Get Stitched weekend in Melbourne. I have also cut out all the pieces, and it is now ready to be stitched - maybe tomorrow.

Wendy at Sugarlane Designs and sign up. With the promise of a special Easter prize who would want to miss out?
I must go get myself organised with some hand work to do. Catch you back here later when we can get together to stitch. Dont forget the chocolates and other yummies !!!!!

My Friday night with Friends ended up being my Friday with Friends.
A group of us met up at Sew This and That, our LQS, for the annual sewing for breast cancer day. We again made bags and little cushions for use after surgery.
After being there for 7 hours with only short breaks, I was a bit "sewed out", so couldnt manage to do more sewing on Friday night.
However, on Saturday morning, which would have been Friday night somewhere in the world, I finished off my project from this month's sewing club at Sew This and That.

I have the pattern listed under my Mardi Kaye Designs page at the top of this blog. If you would like any information about it, please email me.
Shez was the first to make this pattern up, and it is so lovely to see it in a different fabric. I love the soft look she has achieved.

So many stitcheries finished, so little time to make them up. I will have to change that !!!

It is Friday night again, and another FNSI - so lovely to join in with so many others.
I have been working on some stitcheries lately. These 2 are projects from our Lets Get Stitched weekend.
Vicki's table runner. For this I used the Aurifil 12 threads in the colours Vicki had used in her sample (because I liked it so much). These threads are so lovely to work with. I am now ready to sew the table runner - maybe at the weekend.
As well, I have some secret stitching to have finished for Sunday, but I cant show that until the end of the year.
Hope you all enjoy your Friday Stitching - and have some yummy goodies to share.

Free Day !!!!! What will we get up to in this big city of Melbourne? Sadly one of my Roomies was not well, so she stayed in the room for the day while we set out to explore.
Firstly it was catching a tram into Swanston Street, and from the stop it was a short walk to L'ucellos. Wow. What an amazing shop, and one worth seeking out when in Melbourne.
Into this amazing arcade and up the stairs we went, full of anticipation – and we were not disappointed. In fact it far exceeded our expectations.
Teresa and Narelle at the entrance.
The Aladdins Cave inside.
I think we look rather pleased with our purchases. Those bags are gorgeous, and we were the envy of those who didnt make that journey to L’ucellos.
A walk along the Yarra River, and along the street where Helen and Narelle posed with the Lego Lady.
Into the Cathedral, then later, over the bridge to Southbank for lunch.
Into the Shot Tower and the State Library.
Finally it was back to the hotel to prepare for our dinner which was at the Stolberg Beer Cafe.
where we enjoyed a birthday cake to celebrate 4 years of Lets Get Stitched.
Finally it was back to the hotel to prepare for Sunday’s Stitching Day.
