A quiet week ....

Having had the flu this week, I have not been productive at all, have had 2 days off work, and haven't even felt like picking up a needle and thread.  Hopefully that will change this weekend!   If I could just get rid of this headache !!   However, all was brightened yesterday at work when a happy client bought in a beautiful bunch of flowers .... it made a Friday at work with a cold a little more bearable!!   She must have known about my orange addiction !! 

I'm trying to be sneaky here .... but there is a little bit of embroidery tucked away in these flowers !! 

With our "Stitching in the Hills" Retreat only 2 weeks away I have had lots of requests to share the projects we will be working on .... unfortunately I can't ... but here is a tiny glimpse of something ... using the gorgeous Mirabelle range of fabrics from Moda ....  what could this be ??

Search for a button this morning from this cute little sewing tin I recently bought at Hobbysew in Belconnen ... a must have .... and surprise surprise ... there were another two tins inside !!

Some boxes and packages all ready for the "Stitching in the Hills" Retreat !!    

And to brighten up this very cold and windy day on the South Coast ....  here is a cute little zebra .... Jed .....this photo was taken last week before I came down with the flu .... so I haven't even seen him this week .... but I look at this and smile .... hope you have a lovely weekend .... wherever you are and whatever you may be doing !!


  1. Oh my gosh Fiona: That adorable little Jed is so cute what a charmer.
    I hope your flu fly's away very soon.
    That tin is so sweet.

  2. Lovely sneak peaks Fiona. Can't wait till the retreat in less than two weeks. Gorgeous photo of Jed.
