Where has this week gone?? I’ve been doing lots of domestic stuff; all good, but boring for photos and blogging. But let’s catch up on last weekend.
Stitching was at Helen’s on Saturday. The weather that day blasted us all back into the depths of Winter. When I left for Helen’s it was 8 degrees, with heavy clouds producing torrents of rain and even some hail, then unexpected pockets of sunshine. At one stage as I ventured down the freeway I had headlights on, windscreen wipers going full pelt and had to put sunglasses on as up ahead the sky cleared and the sun was glaring off the wet road. I know Melbourne is renowned for four seasons in one day, but this was ridiculous! By the time I reached Helen’s it was a balmy 12 degrees…….brrrr!
Warm and dry inside, we settled in for an afternoon of nattering and stitching…….and a bit of afternoon teaThis much loved doona cover belongs to Sue’s daughter who is very reluctant to give it up, so Sue has trimmed away the fraying edges, sandwiched it with a wadding and is hand quilting in variegated thread to make it into a throw her daughter can still use and love.and Sue has recently returned from a visit to the UK to see her Mum, and on her travels found theseHelen has all her appliqué blocks finished now, and she started to lay them out to show us(I’ve since heard that it’s all sewn together and awaiting borders!)
Kaye has brought “Dear Jane” out of her box Miss V is crocheting some granny squaresand she recently purchased this beautiful hand woven scarf on a trip to Tasmania, woven, I might add, by a 7-year old girl!Karen is stitching blocks, using my “Daisy Days” template setMiss S picked up a sock puppet kit and spent some time making it up for one of her daughtersand I worked on a new sample for a template……Hope you’ve had a good week. More soon……..promise.
