Saturday stitching

Sewing on Saturday was at Miss Kaye’s. It’s a pleasure to visit her beautiful home; Kaye is a collector and there is always so much to see, look at, behold!

20141026-115504.jpgAs well as a feast for the eyes, there’s always a feast for the taste buds too!


20141026-115758.jpgI could have indulged my sweet tooth

20141026-115905.jpgbut chose fruit instead

On the stitching front, Kaye has this old cigar box

20141026-120158.jpgAnd at Quilts in the Barn, Kaye picked up these sweet little blocks

20141026-120354.jpgMiss Helen has bought a Hoshi Star template set and with fabrics purchased last week started a Lemoyne Star.

20141026-120533.jpgMrs Mac (thankfully!) brought along her lozenge quilt she started last week so you can see it now.

20141026-120707.jpgMiss R was stitching in a different way with this pretty cross stitch

20141026-120815.jpgI got to lay out all my Steampunk blocks!

20141026-120903.jpg25 to go!!

As mentioned earlier, Kaye is a collector and one of her indulgences has been wash boards. This passion started with this little one

20141026-122051.jpgand grew,

20141026-121314.jpgand grew,

20141026-121404.jpgAnd grew!

20141026-121020.jpgAs you can see the laundry wall is full; there was room for another little one on the other wall

20141026-121541.jpgbut, That’s It!!!

Another of Kaye’s passions is flying geese…….or variations thereof!

    Some lovely stitching ladies. Those Steam Punk blocks are ‘wild’! Very little stitching this weekend for me, Saturday attended a workshop on native bees, and Sunday visited a Zen garden using only native Australian plants. The LillyPilly trimmed into a ‘Cloud Tree’ was amazing! This garden was part of the Open Garden Scheme.

    I love seeing collections of things, I’ve never seen a collection of wash boards though, they look wonderful all lined up along the wall. Lots of lovely stitching as always. Your Steam Punk blocks look wonderful together!!

    Thanks Meredithe for your Saturday Stitching update, again lots of lovely quilty things to look at! You ladies are certainly busy! I love all those antique blocks and the stitchery, as well as all the delectable sweet stuff. Must have been a lot of fun! Thanks to your stitching challenge, I too have been busy, just not on the computer much for blogging stuff. But that will change soon!! I am not only hand quilting pretty much daily I have now gotten back to the sewing machine as I now have my sewing studio back together after my parents visited from Bermuda.
    Hope you are well and have a very creative week!
