What I Stitched and Sydney!

I had a lovely evening of stitching. The little bird was appliqued on and although you can't see them, I stitched the ric rac on with lots of tiny French knots. The bird is one of Month 3's designs from Jenny's Stitchery Club.

Austin and Nelson joined me and we watched a couple of Adam Sandler movies, the silly Billy Maddison and 
Fifty First Dates. It was a bit of light entertainment 
and it wasn't the cricket! Yeah!
 We picked the cricket tragics up from the airport 
this morning. They had a wonderful time.
 
 Watching the Aussies warming up.
Having dinner with my brother Neville.
Pop over to Cheryll's to see what everyone else got up to.

I keep thinking I should work on my quilt topper during FNWF, but then I get distracted with all the pretty things I have lined up for this year! Your lovely work is further proof I need to pick up my sewing again for at least one night per month :D

LOVE your bird...so pretty, and impressed with those French knots along the ric rac!

I'm not a cricket tragic, but I confess to being a tennis one. ;-)
