Heather: our hostess with a heart of gold...

Yesterday we had  a sewing day at Heather's and after all this time I thought I should share a bit more about my lovely friend!

She is an amazing cook...

...and stitches beautiful things for her home.

(free stitchery pattern here at Bakercourt)

She likes to test out my tutorials...

...and give my designs her own sweet spin.

Her creative space is welcoming, and I often go in and don't come out for a loooooong time...

In fact when she finds me I get escorted out if she discovers the odd fat quarter bundle or two hidden under my shirt...

 It's so neat and organised. I love organised.

But the nicest thing?

Wendy couldn't make it today and we sure missed her sunny smiles, but with the remaining four of us around the table the laughter flowed and the stitching slowed as usual....

Barb is making a pretty bunting banner for her niece from the Rosedaisy Alphabet pattern. What a great idea! Read how Barb prepared this project here on her blog...

Michelle is busy stitching pockets for a bag design. You can see how she created these blocks here on her blog...

I worked away on my newest stitchery design which features two of my favourite Cottage Garden threads, Cherry Blossom and Murray Pine...

What a wonderful way to wind up a week!




  1. Wow, I need a tidy fairy like that to put some order into my cave. It's no wonder you enjoy yourself - good food, good friends, good fun.

  2. You wretch! I was trying to escape that photo! We certainly have lovely days. Can you imagine if we lived in the same street!!!

  6. Fantastic work room. Mine is not like that but I wish one day when I don't have a single bed in the middle of the room for my little Grandson to sleep in. Would not take it away while he is happy to come and stay with us. Life is too short with these treasures,because all of a sudden they are all grown up. xxx

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
