Lots of Goodies & One Flower Wednesday.

Okay who stole last week because it just disappeared !!!
Last Friday my friend Sue and I went to a sewing retreat for the weekend. I was surprised how many of us took machines.

I managed to finish quilting my Mystery Quilt, start on the Henrietta one and do some hand sewing. As well a lots chatting eating and drinking. Was a wonderful weekend spent with my stitching friends.
We stayed at my DD2’s overnight on Sunday and drove home on Monday.

Last night while watching tele I managed to complete my flower for One Flower Wednesday. Must find time to start stitching some together.
