Yesterday was an embroidery day.
We all gathered at a friends
for a relaxed afternoon.

We chat and embroider
share bits and bobs -

and we eat!!!!!

Our hostess Jane
spoilt us with
these exquisite truffles
her daughter had sent
from Harrods in London
for the
"embroidery ladies"!

... just a wee peek
at the piece
I'm working on -
can you guess
what it is???

Take care
and be kind to one another

Thank you
for visiting me
and leaving your lovely comments

What a delightful treat to share among friends, and you probably have something wonderful planned for the pretty box, too!

Hope you enjoy your weekend, mon amie!

Bonjour Sweet Shane,
I see a beautiful angel. Well, in more ways than one. You are so blessed to have friends near you who love to create along side you.
I pray for that. Have a fabulous weekend, mon amie. xo Rhonda

Oh yum! Those truffles sound delightful. And spending time with like-minded friends is a lovely thing. Your stitching is wonderful. I don't know how you work on that fabric. I need big holes or good reading glasses to do any kinda stitching now. :/ Have a great weekend. Tammy

Hi Shane - lovely to catch up with you! Made any shabby chic cards lately? Love the embroidery - it looks rather like a Sampler.
