I am slowly getting my postcard quit together, I have 2 more to stitch then when I get my machine back from being serviced I'll be right to get sewing, I'm so happy with it so far, after having somany lovely friends stitch a card for me and write a messgae it has turned into a treasured friendship quilt. It reminds of how lucky I am to have such talented lovely friends.

Yesterday I took the boys to find some tadpoles, I walk past this creek everyday going to work and I could hear the frogs so I thought surely there might be some tadpoles but alas... we couldn't find any, I think the water was too deep, maybe we'll try again next weekend. It wasn't a total waste of a day though I did get some good stitching done,

Here is a beautiful doll I received from Helen in my Friends in Stitching swap, I think she is so sweet.
I have been busy doing some stitcheries for a project for work, the top two are from Sally Giblin designs and the bottom ones are Rosalie Quinlan, Stay tuned for what will become of them. My sewing machine is in the shop for its service and I thought it was a good opportunity to catch up on some hand work. I hope you are having a good weekend.

There were so many quilts and here are a few of my favourites,I loved the Dear Jane quilt, it has inspired me to keep going with mine. I'll get it done one day.
