Lots of bits and pieces......

Progress on my Twilight Garden is a bit slow at the moment but hopefully it will be done soon...... I put the quilt top together but wasn't happy with it so a lot  of reverse sewing was done then I started the embroidery on the narrow border and ran out of thread so I got started again and then ran out of the other thread ...... nothing worse when you are so close to a finish.


I have also started "Teddy Bear Tea Party" quilt which has been in the cupboard for a long time so I will squeeze it in somewhere...... not sure where yet but there isn't a lot of work in it so it should fit in .... I hope.


I had a lovely Mother's Day with the family and I received lots of terrific gifts, naturally the eating part of the gifts didn't reach the photo stage..... mmmmmm very yummie too.


I entered a  Mother's Day competition on face book and I won..... how good was that ? 
it was on Suzanne Grae's face book and you had to enter a photo of you and your Mum.... my Mum isn't with me anymore but she did help me win this prize..... she would have been very happy about it too.


Our May meeting for the "Sunday Stitcher's" was another great day, here are our birthday girls.

Maria, Maree and Tatyana.


Our Tatyana is having a baby soon..... as if you hadn't guessed that by the last photo so it was a very special day for us all as she was presented with a lovely baby quilt made by the group.

Teresa made the Nappy Cake.


The happy Mum to be.


Love this label made by Jeanette.


and a terrific basket of baby goodies.


As usual we had a great day.

Our Tuesday group was very small this week..... just Norreen and me so while the cats are away we went to play...... in a coffee shop of course.



I really must post more often, getting a bit slack lately....... 
but that's it for now.

PS..... I have a confession too, I signed up for Libby Richardson's new Mystery BOM Quilt so photos will follow soon....... possibly.
