Cracking the whip!

Thanks to everyone who guessed, or suspected, that my last post was my 100th!
Hard to believe (not) that I have prattled on that much!
Keep watching as there is something special for someone that was kind enough to take the time to stop by & comment...look out on Wednesday!

As mentioned a couple of posts ago, my nonblog friend, Lea, was having a little trouble maintaining her sewing mojo....too much to do & tooooo many distractions!
I was happy to spend the afternoon with her (really I was cracking the whip!) & she has produced some lovely bits for pressies, a swap & an upcoming Embroiderers Guild exhibition.


You can hear us "... no Lea...finish that row, then you can have a cup of tea!"
It is always great to spend some stitching time together.

I worked on some stitching for these mug bags...three down...two to go!

I can sympathise with Lea - I had lost my sewing mojo too but after my trip to Nundle on the weekend it has return. Your mug bags look like they are going to be great. Raelee, Caron and I are busy making the mug bag with all the little teacups around the edge. It was Raelee's idea and she is cracking that whip just like you!! Cheers Kylie

Congratulations on your 100th! I need someone to crack the whip for me: clean the house, do the laundry, etc. I just want to play with fabric!

Congratulations on your 100th post. My sister as your friend Lea has also lost the sewing mojo somewhere, when I come over to her house I motivate her a little (get the whip out) to get her UFO's finished its lots of fun for us to spend time together.
