Weekend stitching – part 1

Despite Saturday’s heat, eleven lovely ladies made their way to Miss E’s home to share an afternoon of stitching, gossip, laughter and, of course, delicious shared afternoon tea.

There was some bag envy…..

20140204-185515.jpg(these are all Miss E’s family heirlooms – lovely histories attached), dress envy….

20140204-185635.jpg(I want this fabric!!), phone cover and lamp shade envy….

20140204-185738.jpg(we all want this lamp shade!) and the indulgence in fabulous food!

20140204-185844.jpgOh, you want to see what we were sewing? Hexagons seem to have taken over our sewing baskets, with half of us working on this addictive shape in a multitude of sizes and variations

20140204-190105.jpgthen some hand quilting (I know! Miss E is on a deadline and sat directly under the cool air vent!!), prep for machine work, beautiful squares with spots (can’t wait to see more of Miss A’s project!), Dresden Plates, and my wooly bits (which is getting there…..getting there!!)

Earlier that morning, I was out watering the garden and spotted a ball of fluff out of the corner of my eye whilst hydrating the lemon tree. He stayed there, most patiently, while I crept away for the camera and crept back again…..

Speaking of which, thank you all so much for your exercise sympathy! I did manage to prepare a scrumptious dinner; bought cooked chook broken up on oak leaf lettuce leaves, with mango, avocado, pine nuts and a drizzle of salad dressing. So easy and so yummy!
