More From What A Weekend!

I do love Autumn; the weather for our weekend was spectacular!

20130507-221239.jpgWhile the air was cool, the sun shone in a blue and cloudless sky each day, cheering an already very happy bunch of stitchers!

Marian had picked up a box from her post office with one of those far away post marks…

20130507-221620.jpg….generously waiting to open it with us! Very exciting!! And inside?….

20130507-221719.jpg….was this antique quilt….

20130507-221748.jpg…in fabulous red, white and steely blue. We left it on the design wall on Friday night for viewing and discovered a couple of little endearing “quirks”….

20130507-221926.jpgSaturday saw the viewing of a very different, but equally as appealing quilt in the making…

20130507-222413.jpgThere are actually four of us making quilts using my templates, so we put all four up in their various stages….

20130507-222519.jpgSo different, but all so gorgeous!

There were lots of other projects and paraphernalia (um…not sure if the chocolates are projects or paraphernalia – certainly needed!!)…

20130507-222630.jpg…and, of course, food – the big hit being having a bit of home made apple pie with your cream!!

20130507-222729.jpgThere were new boots….

20130507-222815.jpg…and highly appropriate socks….

20130507-222852.jpg…which one is the chocolate and which the button??

20130507-223125.jpgThis spot

20130507-223201.jpgproved ideal for a spot of crochet

20130507-223241.jpgwhich found its way into a new basket!

20130507-223325.jpgAnd all that cutting out I did last week? Well, I didn’t get as much stitched as I’d hoped, but here it is…

20130507-223447.jpgA mate to the one already done. That’s two of the planned sixteen made!

Thoroughly enjoyable weekend – should be more of ’em!!

Happy stitching
