Le Petite Sweet Spot

Life has been challenging with little time or interest in blogging. Sometimes I think bumps happen in our personal roads so that we can re-evaluate & consider what is really most important in our lives. We are fortunate to be given the opportunity to perhaps change some aspects of our every day lives & make things better for those around us.
Enough navel is my latest finish for Le Petite...Sweet Spot, a Schnibbles pattern. I won two charm packs of Lily & Will recently by participating in this group from Bear Paws Quilts & More. I added a little cream Lakehouse spot and some L & W chocolate spot for the flying geese. I am happy with the soft prettiness of it!

SAL continues!

Under the leadership of the always motivating Chookyblue & the Stitch a long group, I completed my Gardeners Journal quilt...after it languishing in my basket for FAR toooo long! I was happy to have the support of like minded stitchers and it has been great to watch their progress.
In March we will start Tis the Season by Natalie Bird. Great little festive stitcheries.
I may not do them all & I have plans for my setting, but I found some funky fabric with a Christmas theme... I think it will add a bit of zing to Christmas this year!

This past week...

...has been a pleasant one. Birthday celebrations with family & friends, far too much good food and lots of laughter & good company. It was lovely to have DH & both the children in the same place ( a fairly rare occurrence)...
and to catch up with dear friends at Bimbadgen in the Hunter Valley (stunning food!)...
time spent with friends locally...but alas I am waiting for pics...
I don't know why but not lots of photos...I think there might have been too much chatter!
I was spoilt with beautiful gifts...dear Lea blinded herself with this stunning cross stitch...
Raelee & Julie stunned me with this gorgeous quilt...
it is beautiful...
amazing stitching...
Now I need to work on this...
for all who wished me well and shared some time...thankyou!
It has been a lovely week!

A box with a bow!

A special of those significant dates...and a lovely little box with a bow for me!
Nice to be spoilt & thought of...DH is very kind!
Off to lunch with work today.
Did a little baking the other day...good for the figure too.
Made it into this teeny tiny pineapple which I love.

Perfect for summer!

Some Verna and a great bag pattern from Nanette at Freda's Hive has resulted in this summer prettiness. I think the hardest part was finding handles as I did not want cloth ones.
I love the way it looks so fresh &the lime jumbo ric rac was perfect.
Does it make you feel like summer? It is so horribly hot here at present...every day above has suffered...hope it ends soon!  Amazing that some have snow, some rain & we have  this heat!
