Home Again

after four wonderful fun filled days with my friends at retreat.....It was great to just sit and stitch while someone did all the cooking , dishes and cleaning ....

On my list was to get "My Angels Story" together....


Now to find a suitable border....








Nice to have worked on No 10 of the "Sunday Stitchers Challenge" Fancy Forest...


I think I may need to redo the top of the grey flower, as its too light and blends into the background. I know I won't be happy if I don't do it.......








A few weeks ago Fiona from Bubz Rugz posted a Mesh Bag she made and it reminded me I had some mesh in the cupboard sew popped it into my retreat box and Taaa Dahhhh


I also worked on "Land Down Under" by Toni Alexander    Which is also on my UFO list











Mumma and BabyKanga's still need eyes and I have lost half of Mr Emu's bow tie.. Must be in the Cave somewhere.



Not sure why the colours in the photos taken at retreat are very dark ???????







Must away now and get to bed ........

Happy Stitching

Hugz  Maria 😄

  3. That was a productive retreat!
    I see what you mean about the grey flower - in fact I hadn't noticed the flower was there until I read what you said then went looking to see what you were referring to.

  12. lots of great sewing.... I do love how you have done Angel story... those borders really show off the pictures beautifully. I agree with you about the grey flower.. what a pain to unpick though. YOur mesh bag looks great... we must have the same pattern. I love the addition of ric-rac… I might have to copy you when I make another....
