Tuesday Stitching

On Tuesday I had the great delight of accompanying Glenda to visit Lizzie in her new abode, for a stitching afternoon, and Sharyn came along to join us as well!

Liz’s lovely light filled home is filled with vignettes; her gorgeous work, and gifts from friends…..

We spent a fun afternoon, stitching, chatting, enjoying afternoon tea treats….

Needless to say, Glenda and I are looking into our respective scrap bins with new eyes!!

Another lovely day with quilty friends!!

Happy stitching

    you have me know eying my scraps differently as well – I had not thought to do one with half square triangles like that – are those 1 1/2 inch units? they do look small.

    Such a wonderful time and her home is the perfect setting. Her scrap quilt is, what many would say, the epitome of scrap quilting! Love the post!!!

  5. Such cute stuff she has. The treats look good. Nothing in the house like that here. Now I am craving some! I like the scrappy projects. They do sparkle with all the mixing of colors and tones.

  6. What a beautiful home she has! I love that scrappy quilt….. Must look at my buckets if scraps with a new eye.

    It was lovely to have you both ! Reading the comments above I’m happy that I have made people interested in their scraps, my idea is that if you love a piece of fabric, they will all mix together well and then throw in some that you don’t love so much !!!

    M – I luuuv the scarp quilt – I new I was saving my HUGE bag of scraps for something!!!! Thanks broderie!!!!

  9. As you know, I don’t quilt. But one of my aunts has a (perhaps finished by now, but who knows!) hexie quilt that documents the clothes she’s made for herself and her family over the years. It’s interesting to trace the different fabrics and note the brighter colours that have appeared as the years wore on.
