Saturday sewing

We had a little impromptu gathering yesterday, Helen, Karen and I, meeting at Helen’s home for an afternoon of stitching, nattering and……1-dscn5517you didn’t seriously think we’d be going without sustenance, did you?  And besides, I hadn’t had lunch!3-dscn5520Karen is progressing really well on her large floral hexie quilt, starting to sew rows together2-dscn5519I started stitching up some of the triangles I cut out last weekend at Sewjourn4-dscn5521and Helen was working on the last border of her quilt8-dscn5528Helen showed us the Christmas present she bought for grand daughter Miss J, which will live at Granny’s house to be used under supervision when she visits5-dscn5523Such a cute little machine and sewing accoutrements, all set up on its own table ready for Miss J’s visits..  Inside the sewing box is…..6-dscn5525and underneath the top layer is……7-dscn5526Lots for Miss J to be playing with at Granny’s!

And…..Ta Da!  Helen finished the last of the borders while we were there.9-dscn5530Hopefully they’re being machine stitched on as we read this, huh Helen??  So exciting to see this one a finished top after watching it grow over the last two years little while.  Helen was feeling very happy to have finished but slightly bereft at not having it to work on.  Do you ever feel that way about your projects?  I do; it’s such a joy and great feeling of accomplishment to put in that last stitch, but often it’s been a companion over many weeks, months, dare I say years, watching it grow and develop…….and then there’s the question of which one next to fill the gap!

So looking forward to seeing this one quilted and finished, H!

Enjoy your Sunday, Peeps!
