The delightful Miss E kindly invited us to her home for sewing this month; of course, we all helped out with afternoon tea! Quite a spread!
I do love the coasters we used….
I took along my present for Miss S’s latest edition (slow, I know!!)
Miss S showed us the first block in her new quilt for the new baby….
Louise is appliquéing….
…as is Andrea….
Maree is hand quilting (sorry, we didn’t notice the thread across the photo!)
and making hexagons blocks!
all kept together with this cute clip!
Miss E had some great show and tell for us!! Her first quilt – a hexagon made from left overs from dresses and shirts when she was a tender 16 year old quilter!
They’re BIG blocks, as you can see by my hand, and were stitched together on the machine with a 1.5cm seam!!
Miss E has just inherited some night dresses which were hand made by her grandmother-in-law; the workmanship is exquisite…..
…and is working on covering a chair….
which would be lovely for a girl, but these spots….
…are far more appropriate for her son! The girls in the family, though, get to play with this fabulous doll house!
Another lovely day stitching with friends!
