Catching up....

Gee I just read over my last couple of posts and realised I have to catch up with my photos..... so here is some pics of my ufo weekend I went on at the end of May with my no-blog stitching friends, Sharon and Helen......
This was a scrappy floral quilt Helen stitched the borders on ..... the photo doesn't do it justice it was very pretty with lovely soft colours....

Here's Helen hard at it quilting her "Monet's garden" quilt, which was her own design named after the range of fabric she used, she stitched  flowers in redwork onto plain blocks with the beautiful floral fabrics bordering around each stitchery, it looked gorgeous.....

she even had matching gloves.....

This was a beautiful cross-stitch Sharon was working on... she had to add tiny beads to it ......

which as you can see caused her a bit of stress, yep she had to keep stepping out for a cigarette.....

Here are a few things that she did finish......... a cute little lunch bag on the right, it looked perfect in the fabric she chose and the little mushroom charm was a sweet touch.......

an absolutely gorgeous little red  bag...

and block 1 of a Sue Spargo BOM that she has joined, most of this is wool applique..... simply gorgeous....

This was an applique block Helen set up ... ready to stitch...

and lastly Sharon started this lovely cross-stitch, you can just see the design on the left....
I finished a couple of things which I am very happy about and I will post some pics of them soon.....
