Saturday dawned bright, clear and warm; such a change from Friday night. I can’t believe how big the cacti have grown
And what’s this I espy?
Trees can’t be changing colour already?? It’s still, technically, Summer!
There are gorgeous shops to explore in the township, so explore we did……..
all bringing back a little (or lots of) something……
(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
Then it was onto why we’re really here………
Carolyn is making one of Judy’s quilts
Amanda is MSG-ing
Maree turned this
another of Judy’s patterns (“French Market Medallion“)
From the packs GJ bought at Mary’s on Friday, she made these blocks
which rapidly turned into
As is our way, lunch was a feast!
complete with a Valentine’s Day flower chocolate each, courtesy of GJ. (Somehow the truck with the flowers and presents from our husbands didn’t make it to Sewjourn!)
As the day worn on, the ironing board ended up doing double duty
along with Heather’s sewing basket!
And 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
So here’s the twelve
and I’ve prepped two more appliqué blocks
Hope 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!
