I love birthdays! Even though my birthday was a week ago, celebrations in the form of cake and good wishes abounded in both classes – thank you girls!
Sue 3 has her orange peel blocks made
and she played with the arrangement for her clam shell piece
(Sue also brought in the cake – thanks Sue!)
Adrienne almost has one side of pyramids stitched
Jenny has finished her first, ever quilt!
It had been hanging around for
25 a number of years, and Jenny’s so excited to have it finished and she can move on to these blocks
(Promise not to tell, but Deirdre had a little oops on her quilt, which we quickly fixed with an appliquéd diamond!)
Lois cut sashing strips
and Pearl stitched miles and miles of sashing pieces
while Ellen completed her first ever hand pieced block, and is well under way with another.
Leigh was working in the shop on Wednesday, and she had some show and tell too; Leigh’s first grand child is expected and she’s made this baby blanket
and this little quilt top
And here’s what you’ve been waiting for…….fruit flan!
Lorraine is also going to be a grandmother (again), and is making this baby quilt
which she brought along in this bag
Sue 1 was wearing groovy shoes!
the sight of which prompted Sue Ambrose’s sage advice “life’s too short to wear bad shoes”. Love it!
Chris is working steadily through these blocks
Marilyn finished the last of her hexagons
Jane has more stars made
and Fiona is gradually getting her appliqué pieces in position
I had a little splurge, with this fabulous bee fabric that Karen has in stock, along with some other fabrics from a new range called “Letters Home”
And the cake on Thursday? Pear and almond…..
with just a little dollop of cream! Thanks Karen!
