Sunshine!

20140810-083600.jpgIt was cold, but we had sunshine………for a little while anyway!

After a leisurely brekky we headed off for a short road trip to Patch n Quilt

20140810-084225.jpgMary’s chirpiness was in full flight, and she had a surprise assistant in the form of GJ!! We spent a wonderful time, perusing, exclaiming, deciding, and finally buying!

I bought this little lot

20140810-084610.jpgLynette bought a variety of perle threads to start hand quilting

20140810-084657.jpgand some Liberty prints, soon to be “Dear Jane’d”!

20140810-084744.jpgMrs Mac indulged her passion for pink and purple

20140810-084822.jpgHelen was very taken with this range and bought a background for a “something” too

20140810-084949.jpgand Kaye bought the red to go with these fabrics

Back at the ranch……..a quick lunch, then over to the studio………

All afternoon there was the whirr of machines, the swoosh of hand quilting, the hum of the heater, the buzzing of thinking (ok, you couldn’t hear that, but you could see cogs wheeling as processes and decisions were thought through!), and lots of chat and laughter!

I gave Lynette a hand quilting lesson; these are her first two stitched!

20140810-085644.jpgone down and…….no, Lynette’s decided she’s not counting how many there are to do!!

Mrs Mac machine quilted

20140810-085817.jpgand put the binding on this little quilt

By then it was too dark to take good pics of the other work – will remedy that today!

Dinner time and an evening in the house called. But first

20140810-090055.jpga little pre-dinner aperitif

20140810-090129.jpgthat’s better!

And for those who don’t like champagne….

20140810-090204.jpgThe rest of the evening unfolded in front of the fire, with hand stitching, nibbles, and “Salmon Fishing in Yemen”. More Bliss!!
