Summer Sewjourn – part 2

Saturday dawned bright, clear and warm; such a change from Friday night. I can’t believe how big the cacti have grown

20150215-092331.jpgAnd what’s this I espy?

20150215-092422.jpgTrees can’t be changing colour already?? It’s still, technically, Summer!

There are gorgeous shops to explore in the township, so explore we did……..

20150215-092703.jpg(again I was very restrained……..halo is about to choke me!)

For a couple of friends who hadn’t seen each other in a while there was a little present exchange

20150215-093013.jpgThen it was onto why we’re really here………

Carolyn is making one of Judy’s quilts

From the packs GJ bought at Mary’s on Friday, she made these blocks

20150215-094407.jpgwhich rapidly turned into

20150215-094602.jpgAs is our way, lunch was a feast!

As the day worn on, the ironing board ended up doing double duty

20150215-095239.jpgalong with Heather’s sewing basket!

20150215-100017.jpgAnd because it’s the 15th of the month, thus Aunt’s Day, I stitched my little socks off to get the remaining six of my pieced blocks made yesterday, churning them out one after the other

20150215-100240.jpgSo here’s the twelve

20150215-100343.jpgand I’ve prepped two more appliqué blocks


20150215-100903.jpgHope that pleases Auntie Anna!

All in all, an extremely productive day yesterday. And looking around the studio this morning, today promises to be one too!

Even more tomorrow!

Much love

    I am particularly drawn to the applique projects- probably because it is something I don’t really do! The centre of the French Market Medallions is especially lovely!

  2. Irene Blanck says:

    Again, another feast for the eyes – and tummy! Retreats are so much fun… and lots gets done – be it sewing, eating, drinking, and yak yak yaking of course…..

  3. Janine says:

    Loving the Blue and White baskets. I guess Miss Glenda bought one of those.

  4. Vreni says:

    It seems you are having a heavenly weekend. Love all your different projects and your Aunt’s Quilt is coming along very nicely. Your pieced blocks look lovely all together.

  5. Cécile says:

    Love the appliqués : they are so cute…..

  6. Wow – you have all been very busy!! Love all the shopping, and the lunch looks delicious! I like the contents of Heather’s sewing basket! (and I am still crying!!!)

    All those good eats, it’s wonder any stitching ever gets done. Love all those gorgeous projects.:) The fabric combinations are such fun to see.:)

  10. Theresa Arnold says:

    Just a question. When you prep for back basting, what do you use to mark the stitching line on the right side of the fabric?

  11. rachaeldaisy says:

    I was surprised to see some autumn yesterday too. You always show the most wonderful projects with lots of gorgeous fabric combinations. The chocolate roses are so pretty for your Valentines lunch.

  12. Carole says:

    It’s all beautiful but I just love the Aunt’s Quilt blocks – and the shoes!
