And Claire's friend gave her this beautiful silk pear with a simply gorgeous embroidered leaf. Very beautiful!
And the very talented Jennifer made her friend Shirley a fabulous wild pincushion with her name on it "just because"! She is pretty "out there" (the pincushion not Shirley) but just fantastic and full of character! Great work ladies!

I am inspired by Natalie's blog Cinderberry Stitches and her lovely idea to incorporate a day book journal into her week. I will try ... but sometimes I may not get to do it every week! But here we go ....

Outside my window ..... there are rainbow lorrikeets making lots of noise in the native bushes!
I am thinking .... whether it will rain before we get to barbecue for dinner!
I am thankful for ... the safe return from overseas of our youngest daughter!
I am wearing .... shorts and t-shirt because it is very hot and humid!
I am loving .... Wednesday afternoon off work, a swim at the beach with my daughter, time to be creative and a cup of peppermint tea!
I am stitching ... the finishing touches on a lovely bag which I will share with you later!
I am hoping .... for more hours in my days to create all I want to create!
I am drooling over .... my basket of threads - I just love all the colours!
I am hearing .... what seems like thousands of lorrikeets (and I can't hear much else!)
I am reading ...."Between me and the River" by Carrie Host (a memoir of living beyond cancer)
On my mind .... are our lovely friends in the Solomon Islands who we will be visiting next week!
From my picture journal .... our last visit to the Solomon Islands on a mission trip with Church in October 2009!
This is a close up of the centre panel - it really is a lovely quilt and one I would like to own!!!

then it became a crazy patchwork piece of embroidery which I then embellished with a variety of stitches and a few buttons and a charm ..........
and then I stretched it over the small artists canvas which I had and hung it on a wall and this is how it turned out! Next weeks project for my ladies!

A close-up of one of the designs! These should look fantastic when we put them all together! The lucky recipient will be happy and the local charity will also be very happy! Well done ladies!

This is a little blurry (but you get the general idea!). Jenni has made this simply adorable bear quilt for her niece! Lucky girl!
