A mixed bag

Our KHS meeting this month started out at a cafe in Hawera for lunch then back to Nancy's for a cuppa and relax time stitching.  Our lunch was a mixed bag with half the group enjoying there's and half of us really disappointed with ours!



Not a lot of finished projects this month, everyone has lost the wind from their sails with the exception of Nancy! The top photo is of Claire's knitted blocks she is doing for another group she is in and the photo's below are of Nancy and her box fill of knitted singlets for new born babies which she gives to the hospital and blankets, lot of blankets!!
It was kind of fitting that we ended up at Nancy's this month as it may be her last time she hosts us in her home as she is looking at moving to a small unit!  I always love going to Nancy's, it feels like home, so I thought I better take some photos, to showcase her many talents, from quilting, cross stitching, sewing and knitting!!





She is a talented lady and has her gorgeous crafts all around her home.
She is also crazy ....................in a wonderful way too.................don't you just love her mail box!!!!!
Hope you all have a wonderful week, full of creative bliss!
Michelle

At Michelle's













Two Saturdays ago we had our KHS meeting at Michelle's, as you can see from the photo's it was a lovely relaxing day.  There was a wee bit of stitching, a lot of chatting, it was great to just sit and stitch for a while, which I hadn't done in some time!! The first 9 photo's are all Michelle's projects-she has been one busy lady!! (I am green with jealously!!) The other three are just everyone chilling.  Thanks for a great day Michelle, i did come home all inspired.................but lost it when I started milking!!!! Hopefully next week, that inspiration will come back???
Have a great week everyone,
Michelle.

Can't believe how busy things have been!  Time has disappeared so fast!  I think this photo was taken 3 weeks ago, the day before my son flew back to Australia for work.  My Grandad was in hospital so we made a flying trip to visit before he flew out, it was a great day and a great catch up.

Then on that weekend I had the KHS girls come for lunch, can't believe I didn't take any photo's ( mind you I was busy getting lunch ready!!) It was a great catch up, everyone was here and that was extra special as it was my birthday and I got soooo spoilt!  The two photos above are my pressies!  The house was filled with lots of chatter and laughter, it was so much fun.  And we had perfect weather so we sat outside for lunch!  It might have been our only summers day, we have had a lot of rain this summer!!   We also planed our projects out for the next couple of months........................the projects brought to do have a Christmas theme so that makes me happy!
It's hard to believe that our next meeting is actually this weekend, it seems to have been a short turn around for this one...........................but no complaints from me!!! So I will do my best to take photo's this time.
Enjoy what is left of your week,
Michelle.

New Year off to a good start.....................




I had a shaky start to the year, but have found my feet and have my first finish for 2017!  I brought this unit for $40 which was a steal! Then with a little chalk paint and time..................................


This unit is a combo of blue and linen colors and I love how it has turned out, to be honest it has come out better than i thought!
Have a great Tuesday,
Michelle.
