It’s been such a fun day!
The morning dawned with a clear blue sky, just a little on the chilly side, but the sunshine was so appreciated after the grey, wet skies of Melbourne this past week.
Ooh – when I went to put that photo in, I saw another and need to back track…..last night’s dinner!
how could I forget? Delicious home cooked silverside and scrumptious veggies. Hmm, hmm.
Anyway…..back to today.
For the weekend I’m teaching a class I call “Appliqué Basics” in which I demonstrate and talk about different methods, techniques, tricks and tips for needle turn appliqué, using this as an example
By late this afternoon all 11 students had “sample stitched” some pieces and were setting up for a block.
Haven’t they done well?
As usual, Heather had beautiful flowers
and fabulous food
It was so pleasant to sit outside at lunch time enjoying the garden
even in late Autumn there’s lots to see
and the last of the roses are just stunning.
Hearing a “bock, bock, bock” I looked to see….
who was soon joined by another
with no food in the offing from me
it was time to depart!
Afternoon tea was delicious orange and poppy seed cake
All day long I’d been admiring Paula’s pretty basket, so took a pic to satisfy the basket envy.
Lynette joined us and sat
fairly quietly stitching the binding on this quilt for her great nephew
I think we all had a productive day! More soon……
