I'm quite excited that we're so close to the end of the alphabet with Monogram Mondays!
Today I'm sharing ~T~...
We only have six letters left, but these will be shared over the next two weeks so we can finish in the middle of the year.
Next Monday I'll share U, V and W.
On July 1st, we'll stitch the final three, X, Y and Z.
Download today's letter, ~T~ here.
Today I met with some girlfriends at the Tumbetin Tearooms for a luscious morning tea of coffee...
The Tearooms are part of the beautiful Palmetum Gardens here in Townsville, and one of my favourite cafes. You might remember THIS blog post last year when I took my grandson Cal there for a 'just the two of us' date before Kezzie and Bert's wedding.
As I work from home it's always a lovely treat to get out of the house and not be surrounded by all the business side of things! I relax easily when I am out in nature, and the Palmetum offers that (as well as the delectable food!). It's my second favourite place to be. My first choice is always up the mountain.
Tell me, where is your favourite place to chill out? Are you a nature lover like me, or do you prefer a different atmosphere?
I've been stitching up a storm this weekend, and have now finished Block 3 of Beauty.
As much as I enjoy stitching my new designs, I also try to take some time out every month or two (depending on how busy I get), and stitch someone else's pattern.
Late Saturday night I decided to make a start on Dawn's pretty set of table-runners. With just one charm square pack, and some solid yardage, I will have two lovely long runners when I finish!
I chose an "Avalon" charm pack...
...and had the pieces cut, pinned, and ready to sew, by the time Mr E called 'lights out' just before midnight.
On Sunday we went for a long bike ride, and today I met up with the girls, so I didn't get the first runner machine pieced until after dinner tonight.
I'll sandwich it in the morning, and hopefully have some machine quilting finished by morning tea so I can show you in tomorrow's blog post.
It's rare that I make a project with no embroidery, but this is very relaxing, and I'm enjoying the discipline of machine piecing.
Mr E is calling. I'm turning into such a night owl!
