Several of the Squealers hadn’t visited the quilt shop, so we made a booking and all lobbed there for a day of stitching on Saturday.  As always the shop was looking fabulous with some new fabrics in from Kaffe and Tilda, as well as lots of other lovelinessWe brought along goodies to share for morning/afternoon tea which we all enjoyed(now you know that’s not mine, because I don’t drink milky tea!)

Miss E recently scored this stunning teapot from the Camberwell Market

and she’s currently playing with pretty hankies and a bit of embroidery……you’ll have to wait to see what it will be!Maree spoilt us each with an early Easter treat (just love the patchwork serviettes)and she’s finished her hexie bag (slightly different to the original pattern)and is making more hexie blocks for “Emma MaryKaye had this huuuuge pile of blockswhich in true Kaye style, was cut and trimmed in an orderly fashionHelen is making these sweet blocksand, desperately missing her applique, bought some fabrics to start on a new projectMiss S has made this fabulous quilt top for her sonand she too continues her love of hexiesEllen joined us and finished a cardigan (she’s just a little short of buttons!)and promptly started a new oneI hadn’t done any sewing for about a week, and still had two flowers to applique – now just one(like my new glasses?)

Karen has gone a little “Farmer’s Wife” crazyLouise is making this stunner (which I think is this pattern)and has a new sewing boxand Andrea’s applique was very apt as the leaves are just starting to turn ’round hereEveryone had such a lovely time, me thinks we’ll be doing this again…….very soon!

    My squealers are when I see a post from your blog! Hurray! It has been a very hard winter for us with over 81 inches of snow, ice dams breaking out facia boards by pulling out HEATED gutters, etc. etc. My husband had his knee replaced in Jan. and I have been the shoveler, plow driver, etc. Not much stitching…….but spring is springing……only one more inch of snow today…..and hubby is thinking golf again!!!! Hurray! Maybe now I can join the stitching instead of just salivating over yours……

  2. What a fun post – seeing all the projects in progress. Very inspiring!!! Thanks for sharing.

    Wow — lots of squealing going on here! I’m particularly loving Kaye’s fantastic blocks, but all of the projects look wonderful. And if the desserts are any clue — it must’ve been GREAT!!!

    Lovely collection of projects. The shop looks fabulous and that morning tea is amazing! The cake with the pumpkin seeds looks particularly delicious.

    Love the new glasses! Lots of super projects – I would have guessed that those fabrics were Helen’s!!

    Love the teapot and those sweet paper napkins! Oh, and it looks like a very productive session too!

  10. Wow I love all those hexies , especially the turquoise and pink combo. The bag is adorable. And Helen’s block is just my thing, is it the ohio star, this is one I have on my list for my sampler quilt, so I should know. That Farmer’s wife is just my thing too, such bright and cheery fabrics. Oh you must have so much fun at your gatherings. You are so lucky.

Thank you for taking the time to comment - reading them makes my day!
