Tuesday Girls and Show n Tell

The Tuesday Girls came to my place today and I thought I should do a little bit of show n tell to prove that I have been creative lately...
So I dragged out some of my finished and not-so-finished projects to show them..
I have been collecting little boxes for a little while - not sure why - but sometimes they just look like a great size or shape and are pretty sturdy in how they are made.  You know the sort - usually
make-up comes in them, jewellery,  or in my case - some of my boxes came from a set of taps.  Any how here is a photo of some of the collected boxes..
I have pulled out some of the boxes and started to play with them, and this is what I have come up with so far...
 I have always loved playing with paper and these ones have been so much fun to make.  I am sure they will come in handy at christmas time for putting pressies in..  I still have some more to play with and I will put them up too when I have done them..
Now moving away from paper craft - while I was on holiday in New Zealand I found some time to do a little bit of stitching..  I prepped this before I went to make it easy to pull out... I am planning on turning it into a wall hanging..
I have also, lately been turning my Natalie Bird quilt blocks into wall hangings instead of making another quilt.. Here is one of them..
I have also prepped all my Welcome Home blocks but I am planning on taking them with me on my next retreat to blanket stitch..
My Lucy Boston blocks have been getting some attention lately too...
Well that's all for my show n tell - moving on to todays get together...
Teresa supplied a yummy morning tea today and while you are checking out the food on the board - take note of her lovely cheese knives...
Helen finished her  gorgeous wall hanging today, so we were able to take a photo of it...
 We had another fabulous day and as the girls were leaving today, I noticed some mail in my letterbox, and to my delight, these pretty washi tapes had arrived...  I was hoping they would arrive so I could admire them and  now that I have them in my mitts I am really looking forward to playing with them...
That's all today...
