One Flower Wednesday-reporting: last week of July

...wasn't yesterday's experiment fun? I hear the Aussie girls made sure our spontaneous Sew-in continued into the wee hours! I will definitely do it again! I am still amazed at how much I got done. THANK YOU!I stayed up late stitching on the binding and I really like the results so far.
I told you about my set-up, right?

So this is where I will be tonight, watching tv and stitching away! This little trolley works so well to hold my sewing supplies in the living-room.

This morning I owed the boys a morning out, and as they are napping I made a hexi-flower.
I am sorry I was late posting my wednesday's flowers last week, so for those of you who missed it (and are interested!) you can click here.

So there is mine on the left and on the right, with a sunny centre...

I got a lovely surprise package from Shirley. Thank you, Sweet Friend! I know exactly where this lovely flower is going. You'll see... :)
xox 4u!

Have a lovely rest of your week! Binding beckons!

Have all my stuff on a tray which rests on our dining table or anywhere else for that matter LOL.

Hugs, Daniëlle who is going to do some stitches!! XXXD

My Patchwork Family Through Adoption

A Bit of Africa and China
Came knocking on our door
And in a home where there was longing
Now empty rooms no more

Like a Quilt of Many Colours
Our Family stitched together into One
God's Love and Grace for us Abundant
In the Miracle of our Sons
