Friday Night Sew-In On A Saturday!

I wasn't able to join in on Friday night so I stitched with the girls in the 
Northern Hemisphere on Saturday. The Chit Chat Crafters 
came to my place and we had a lovely day of stitching and friendship. 
So I stitched along with two groups of friends!
 I finished the applique on the first block I had already started on
my "The Happy Stitcher" hanging.
 Block 2 is now ready for the stitchery part too.
Thank you to Wendy of Sugarlane Designs for hosting us.
You can see what others stitched here.

Catching Up!

 I finished my "House Rules" stitchery a few weeks ago but only 
just got around to framing it. But I'm going to have to take it out as 
the fold line is still showing. Hopefully, I can get rid of it. 
The pattern is by by Leanne Knell of Petals and Patches.
 This is the prize pack I won from Toni Alexander at the
 Red Boots Gang a little while ago.
 For Mother's Day, Mitchell got me this book (he made have had 
a little help!) by Toni. There are so many lovely things in it.
 I have started a new hand project, "The Happy Stitcher". 
I bought the kit at the recent AQC.
I've also started preparing for a new baby quilt.
Last Saturday, Noel and Nelson headed off on the trip of a life time. 
They are walking the Kokoda Track in Papua New Guinea. 
The trek is 96km of rugged terrain and they finish the trek on Monday. 
We don't have any contact with them but the tour company has been putting
 daily reports on facebook. They seem to be going well 
but I'm looking forward to them getting home and telling us all about it.

Well, that's a bit of a catch up here at MacDonald's Patch. 
Hopefully, I'll have some great photos of Noel and Nelson's 
Kokoda trip to share with you.

OPAM for April

 A day late for my OPAM report with only one finish this month. 
I did finish my House Rules stitchery but haven't done anything with it yet.
Thanks to Kris for keeping us inspired.
