Squealers is back too!

As always we had a shared afternoon tea and a surprising number of Squealers brought fruit (obviously we’re all on a health kick after bingeing over Christmas!) and even more surprisingly none of it was duplicated.

20160206-212430.jpgand for something diametrically opposed, Helen is also working on this Japanese style appliqué

20160206-212534.jpgMrs Mac has been hand quilting, between hot spells

20160206-212612.jpgand when it’s too hot for quilting, she’s been piecing

20160206-212640.jpgAndrea is travelling overseas this year and is making this as a gift to take

20160206-212908.jpgMiss V was knitting for a grandchild

20160206-212934.jpgand Miss E was knitting for a friend’s child

20160206-213016.jpgMaree quickly sewed buttons on to complete this shirt

Helen’s gorgeous granddaughter Miss J was with us too and she started making a monster

20160206-213303.jpgand if only Granny had remembered the glue he would have been finished!

20160206-213345.jpgInstead Miss J drew Granny a picture with her new pencil set.

    Oh how wonderful to have a stitching grandchild……and sewing cards….such fond memories of my own dear grandmother were brought back! Once at one of our day retreats, a friend’s granddaughter , about eight, was there with her little machine. She came to me….granny was busy…..and asked me if I could show her how to put a little box of fabric inside a bigger box. I then realized she had no concept of bordering a square. It was so delightful to watch her eyes light up when I showed her the concept of sewing a strip on each side one at a time. Fun, fun!

    Such awesomeness, especially love Helen’s new Japanese work in progress, so delicate. All that fresh fruit made me hungry…was that a little plate of shortbread I spied?

  5. …And a wonderful time was had by all!
