Saturday stitching

On Saturday we met at Kaye’s beautiful home

20160427-112658.jpg(where there was even a nod to The Queen’s 90th birthday)

20160427-112815.jpg for a delightful afternoon of friendship and stitching.

First we checked out Kaye’s garden

20160427-112912.jpgEverything is growing beautifully

20160427-112939.jpgThen it was time to stitch……and catch up……

Helen is playing with Lucy Boston shapes

20160427-113100.jpgand she’s been crocheting this scarf

20160427-113127.jpgjust the circle “tassels” to do

20160427-113157.jpgand with her grand daughter Miss J visiting too, Miss J had to get in on the yarn-y action

20160427-113243.jpg(“ooh, thanks Granny” said Miss J, with eyes as big as saucers when she spied this gift.)

Sue is hand quilting the borders of this quilt

20160427-113518.jpgHeather is playing with Lucy Boston blocks too

20160427-113549.jpgKaren is obsessed with these “Daisy Days” blocks (one of my templates)

20160427-113653.jpgand she had a box of prepped blocks ready to be stitched up

20160427-113733.jpgJenny is enjoying Sashiko

20160427-113800.jpgand I caught up on a few circles

20160427-113826.jpgAnd for all you foodies, there was yummy afternoon tea; fresh scones, jam and cream, and apricot slice

20160427-113947.jpgand homemade mud cake with strawberries and cream.

    Love the photos, such pretty stitching. Edibles look so yummy, is that whipped cream for the scones or something we do not have over here??

    I always love to see so many projects being done by hand – in my area very few work by hand and will not even try it thinking they can only use the machine – there are only a few of us that do a lot of hand work

    Such a wonderful variety of projects and treats. Kay’s beautiful home made an inspirational place to stitch and be with friends.

  8. Excuse me while I wipe away the drool……. As always envious of what you ladies get up to! Oh and I’m waiting for the apple cake recipe!! Jenny xxx
