On a cold, blustery day, we made our way to GJ’s for a get together of the Eliott Stitchers.
Amanda has been on a trip and brought back a cute little mouse pin cushion for each of us and here’s the little fella I chose
It seems such a shame to poke him with pins and needles (but he does go rather well with the scissors from my hand quilting bag!)
Heather had lots of show and tell……..a quilt back from the quilters
a gorgeous tin
and a new bag…..that comes with a story
This was Heather’s first quilt started many years ago, with papers cut from the Woman’s Weekly magazine and was intended to be a double bed size quilt. It languished as a doll size quilt until a couple of weeks ago when Heather took heart in hand and chopped and re stitched it
and now it’s gorgeous and useful and holds her sock knitting!
GJ had show and tell too; basket, sign and tin
and inside the basket – so sweet!
There was a variety of eats
then it was onto the serious business of stitching.
and I were all circle-ing
GJ was hand quilting
Carolyn played with hexies
and Lulu made herself very comfortable, being a leg warmer and tray for Heather, and chief investigator of Heather’s sewing case!
