Stitching update

My hexies are all finished but no time for putting the bag together yet.

Easter weekend was quiet and picked up this 2nd hand coffee table.

A bit more stitching on my Rosalie Quinlan project from Craft Alive

First time I've ever attempted chain stitch and I'm now addicted.

Forgot to Share

Last weekend when we went to Sydney we couldn't go all the way there without catching up with my Dear Friend Jenny again.
We had fish and chips down by the beach.

Watching the Parasailing

Afternoon tea was back at Jenny's flat and to chat about her sewing

So nice to see her again. We are planning another sewing weekend somewhere in the winter.

Today I'm upcycling. I don't like wearing linen shirts mainly because of the ever necessary ironing procedure beforehand.
So instead of giving them away, I've decided to cut them up and use them for stitchery fabrics.
Time for some afternoon stitching
