Kindred Heart Stitchers

Yesterday our group met at Michelle's place for our monthly get together, she has her home looking so beautiful!  Love the dresser with all the blue and white ( makes me want to get mine out ?!! but no room!!) But it is so beautiful.  So yesterday was supposed to be day were we made our paper mache, but communication break down they had already done it, so lucky I took along my unpicking along.  As usual Michelle had a yummy lunch which was topped off with the most Divine raspberry and white chocolate cheesecake!!
                                         These are Michelle's and Nicky's paper mache boxes.
It was also Nancy's birthday month, we gave her our pressies but I was so wrapped up in watching her unwrapping her goodies I forgot to take a photo !  But I do have a photo of her with the kids decorating the gingerbread men she made for the kids to decorate!
Claire brought along a quilt she finished and while there yesterday, sewed on a binding and hand stitched it down! (Well done Claire-hate that job!!)  The first quilt pictured below is the finish and the second is the binding one- so love this quilt!! Clever lady- but don't tell her that !!

Was a great day with lots of laughs and fab food, and when I thought the day couldn't get any better Claire gave us an envelope with goodies in  it for next months challenge.  We all have the same and can do anything with it but we have to use everything or at lease a piece of everything! It is so exciting, can't wait to see what we all make ?
Now the thinking has began, no idea at the moment, but I have a month and I think I will need it.  Enjoy your Wednesday, Michelle.


  1. Fun day. I like your challenge idea!

  2. Thanks for the fun day, Michelle! I still have my thinking cap on as to what to make, and you have less than a month this time! No pressure!

  3. Sounds like you had a wonderful day with friends.

  4. The boxes are lovely and the cheesecake looks delicious! The new fabrics are gorgeous, I look forward to seeing what you all make.
