I’m bundling a couple of events together again!
Karen hosted Friday sewing last week, with her trademark sandwiches for lunch – why do Karen’s sandwiches always taste soooo good?and a little something for afters tooMaree was working on her hexiesMiss S joined us for a short time, and is madly stitching larger hexiesI was working on “Saigon” (which you’ve now all seen)and Karen was indulging in a little appliqueKaren’s Mum crochets these adorable little rugs – this one is doll size, and oh, so sweet, and destined for a special little girl for her birthday.
Saturday was Stitch Sisters’ sewing day and Sue was our hostess. Sue’s table was adorned with a very special supper cloth embroidered by her Nanna with a matching tray table cloth, all stitched when Nanna, as a young woman long before she became a nanna, announced her engagementSue’s Mum had these in a cupboard and asked if Sue would like to have them. No need to ask twice!
Food wise we had a choice of savouryor sweet and this is what a plate with a little of each looks like!There have been some birthdays recently too, so Sue had spoilt us with birthday cake, complete with candles (which didn’t give away the recipients’ ages) and had to be lit and blown out twice!
Sue has started a whole cloth quilt of her own designso keen to see this one progress! And Sue put out the blocks she’s making for a friend’s quilt
Maree was again working on her hexies
