Queanbeyan Stitching Girls

It's always lovely to share stitching times with friends from afar and we were lucky to have some of our Queanbeyan friends visit our Needlework group this week - not once but twice - they are so very keen!!!   They bought along some lovely finished pieces to show us and inspire us ....   This is Jeanette's lovely little sewing bag and pincushion made by Joanne for her last Christmas!  Love the fabrics and embroidery!

A gorgeous Christmas quilt!

Loved this little embroidered house quilt .... "As for me and my house we will serve the Lord"

Beautiful embroidery on your houses Jeanette!

Love all the different houses and gardens!

This photo is not too clear but the redwork stitching is gorgeous!

And this is Rhonda's coloured version of the same quilt above!

Again the stitching is beautiful!

And Rhonda had made a gorgeous little hanging with stitched verses that can be changed!

Gorgeous fabrics and a very cute project!

And above all a reminder for us all to .... give thanks .... for good friends!

This is Rhonda on the left, Shirley in the background, Jeanette and Dawn ... all stitching together and having a lovely time!

And I had to share these beautiful flowers from my gorgeous husband to be celebrate our 32 nd wedding anniversary!    I'm blessed!

How beautiful are the colours in these flowers and these perfect little apricot roses have decided to come out today and show their true beauty!
