Saturday stitching

On a cold, cloudy, winter Saturday, we spent a delightful afternoon in front of Mrs Mac’s roaring fire stitching, talking and laughing!

Mrs Mac had quite a bit of show and tell…….

:: she’s started making “Alice” blocks

    I’m loving Mrs Macs colours in the ‘Alice’ blocks. Food for thought for July.

    Meredith, I am enjoying reading about your winter tempts, we are in the 100’s here in Northern California! Mrs. Mac’s new Alice blocks are wonderful, especially love the second one. Do you know what line of fabric she is using? I think I need to order that pattern. Also love her perfectly pieced little Churn Dash blocks, nice combination. Little Miss J must be so thrilled to see her very nice drawing on your blog. She is in very inspiring company!

  8. Does Mrs Mac ever sleep!!?? And isn’t little Miss J the clever one – just like her adoring Granny!
