Darcy’s Girls

Another get together with Judy and our friends was arranged for Monday. We discovered we all loved Jane Austen and have decided to call ourselves “Darcy’s Girls”!

We met at Sue’s home; she knows the way to a quilter’s heart

    Happy birthday for last week. From all you have written it seams like you had a lovely and long celebrated birthday.
    I love Sue’s wall birds and the display cabinet. I would love to know where she got them from.

    hugs, Fiona

  2. Oh my goodness! What a fabulous show and tell. I love the kantha quilting on the flower garden quilt. It suits it very well. Glad to have discovered your blog. Wonderful inspiration.

  3. I love the birds, and I shall have to show Malcolm the cupboard ……. just as I wrote that he came into the room, so has now had a good look at it – could this be another project!! Lots of super sewing, and as always, delicious food! I have also requested that Malcolm does a pencil drawing of a sewing machine for me to embellish!!
