Stitching with Rosie

I had such a good day today.  First I was off to my Stitching with Rosie class.  Here is this month's project.
The fabric I selected to frame it is one of Rosalie's new range.  Isn't it sweet, I partnered it with a Cotton Garden thread called Hollyhock.
This photo shows the whole range on display at Gail B's.
Part way through the class my NOTYQ friend Anita of Hillside Quilting arrived with Rosalie's latest quilt made in Tilda fabrics.  Rosie and some friends stitched it and Anita quilted it. This quilt will fly off to the Netherlands tomorrow.

I wanted to share this gorgeous stitchery with you.  
It was stitched by one of our group, super stitcher Lynne, and placed on the top of a circular container. So beautiful.  I did buy some other fabrics at Gail's but I'll share them on another day.
Next a stop at a lovely cafe then off to Somerset Cottage for it's opening day in it's new location, in Canterbury Road, Vermont.
I did have a little shop there too, buying some fabrics to add to my reproductions stash.
And now I have an evening of playing with little Henry before he goes home tomorrow.
Some days I lead a charmed life.
Little Bit Funky is loads of fun. 

And so is the tutorial for these fabulous feathers.  Just go HERE to enjoy all that is so kindly shared with us.
Hope you had a wonderful day
