This blog continues to chronicle my adventures in retirement or the 'next stage' of my life. Join me as I search for a simpler life as I re-learn to appreciate what I already have and to acknowledge that 'little people can make a difference'!

Finally handed over!
Today was the first Sunday Stitchers meet up for 2016! That means lots of chatting, laughing, stitching, Show and Tell of projects and of course, eating.
We had our last get together in December, when we had celebrated one member's 70th birthday in style with a high tea at Parliament House...Helen, the guest of honour, is sitting in the middle.
Another thing we did for Helen's special birthday, was each of us made a quilt block with the theme of 'Teapots'.
A few weeks ago, Helen laid out all the blocks she had received...
They are all so beautiful...mine isn't there.
But today, I finally handed my block over. It's very plain but as I said to Helen, the plain will balance the stunning ones!!! Lol
The design is from Urban Threads. The threads are Cottage Garden's 'heliotrope'.
