Connie has confirmed that stitchers are the best people

Hi everyone,

Connie of Spinster Stitcher fame has always entertained with her life stories. But her latest post was just a very kind and heartfelt joy to read. She has offered to help folks who's life has been interrupted by the east-coast USA storm called Sandy in a very special way. Aren't stitching folks the best?

I hope lives are starting to get easier our thoughts are with you.

In my quiet life I have been able to stitch some more of Atlantis. The diamond at the bottom and the diamond a the top have been added to.

At seminar we were given a chart, piece of canvas and notes to stitch a design for auction at the next seminar in California. This is the photo of the chart and how it finished up, I changed the design a little ( hope they don't mind).

And, while I was poking around in my stitchy stash I came across a little design that just begged to be stitched. It was so warm and uncomfortable that stitching is the only thing that happened in this house on Saturday. Ta da...

I did manage to clean some windows on Sunday, guess what happened on Monday, yep it rained. Oh well that's life. 

This week starting Thursday is the Quilt and Craft Show in Adelaide. We don't get very many of these shows in Adelaide so we are looking forward to this one. The quilts on show are amazing and we always manage to find something to bring home. I will share photos of what jumps into my bring home basket of goodies.

Happy stitching,Bye for now, Carol
