A lovely day..........

I went and sewed with the club girls (you must check out there site) today also included in this group are Dragonfly, Happy in Quilting and Day Days Blog....(OMG check out all the bags she has been making)......

........the girls made me and fairy girl so welcome - thankyou so much we had a great time sewing with you..........

fairy girl started a stitchery and she is sewing so much better now with her backstitch - the stitches join up.........lol.......

so what did I do..........a little more applique (sorry no pic) and this little stitchery..........(by Hatched and Patched)

here is the machine I am now dreaming of...................

now everything was going so well until we were driving home and things just got worse and worse...........we ran into a storm and it took me about 25 minutes to go 10kms..........also on dirt road...........yuk............

So can you see anything out the windows???????

NO good cause I couldn't see much either............Fairy Girl took these pics while crawling along - it just poured down.............we measured the rain just a short time ago and we have had 2 inchs /50mls and it is still raining..........

take care til next time.............thanks for a great day...........

  4. That is a nasty looking storm. At least the rest of the day was a lot of fun stitching with your friends.

  15. You will love the Janome MC 6600. I was able to buy this amazing machine some weeks ago. I did not have much time to try lots of things, but everything I’ve made up to now is going so easy. I love the thread-cutter and the knee-lift! Sweet dreams my friend, you better dream about a sewing-machine than about frogs!

  16. That machine looks familiar... I think the jolly man in red dropped one off for me under the tree last year! I am still discovering more wonderful things about it each time I use it, and love it! Cute little stitchery!
