Saturday Stitch Sisters

My goodness! I’ve had a very busy – and very lovely – weekend. It started with Stitch Sisters on Saturday where, when arriving at Miss R’s home, we spotted Rainbow Lorikeets sitting in the bird feeder made by Miss R’s husband

20150302-193019.jpgDid you see the pigeon in the tree? There were spiky haired pigeons on the roof too, so I went a bit overboard and took lots of birdy pics!

20150302-193159.jpgInside, Mrs Mac has started a new machine pieced quilt, based on the postage stamp theory, but accidentally rectangles instead of squares – I love it!

20150302-193347.jpgThere have been two new additions to her clan too, with a grandson and a granddaughter born in the last three weeks, so Mrs Mac will be making bunny rugs

20150302-193641.jpgHelen has started another appliqué block – just to see how the fabric looks!

20150302-193841.jpgIt was my birthday on Friday, so Miss R kindly made a cake, with candles, and i was sung a happy birthday song!

    Oh, happy birthday! Take cake looks delicious! And I’m looking forward to seeing the progress you’ve made on your Steampunk!

    I too want to wish you a belated Happy Birthday. What a nice way to spend the “day after” your birthday. Love seeing all the projects everybody was working on and also the bird pictures. I could never get enough seeing those Rainbow Lorikeets when we live in Australia as they were so exotic to us.

    Belated Birthday Blessings!!!!! A day (after) spent celebrating with stitchy friends, what could be more perfect!!!! Sue’s blocks are so sweet……….and there’s so much to look at!!!!!! You may “go overboard with birdie photos” anytime you wish……they’re awesome! Nothing like those cuties around here (but a very common Robin or two would be most welcome right now!!! LOL!).

  6. Suzanne says:

    Happy Birthday Meredithe!! What a lovely way to celebrate, sewing with friends, and eating mouth watering cake. I always love bird photos, and those flowery blocks are so brilliant! Postage stamp rectangles is a fun twist on the usual squares.

  11. Belated Happy Birthday!! Now that I have stopped drooling over the cake, I just want to complain that you have gorgeously coloured birds, and I’ve got brown ones!! Lots of lovely sewing, and I’m off to email Mrs Mac about her new arrival!

  12. Helen F says:

    Wow M – the bird photos turned out well!! We could have watched them for hours!!! Yes Anne the cake was soooo delicious!!!!!
