I had a lovely weekend, did you? I went up to Millrose and stayed ALL weekend!
We started with a bit of shopping on the way at Patch n Quiltthen onto Millrose.
Even though the weather wasn’t flash, the Autumn colours were beautiful, and we didn’t really mind as it was a good excuse to stay indoors and stitch!Of course there was lots of food, including pre-dinner nibbles and lots of sewing/stitching/creating/laughing/chatting.
Jan had chosen these delectable plains(of course, some of us had to have them too!) and she was working on her embroideryGJ and Jan had gone up a couple of days before and GJ had been very productive getting LOTS done; minky blanketsand bagsand bags and progress on this quiltand the beginnings of the applique on this quilt (designed by Rae Telfer)My roomie was Ange, who I didn’t really know before I went, but she is an especially lovely lady and the perfect roomie; we went to bed at the same time, woke at the same time, and she even came for a walk with me early morning! And Ange does beautiful work. She turned these blocksinto this quilt topand Ange also worked on these blocks (can’t remember whose pattern this is)Andrea worked on her Autumn appliqueusing real leaves as templatesCarolyn showed us her gorgeous blocksand Maree chose some fabrics for backgrounds for her quiltAnd my apologies to my other Weekend Cohorts as I appear to have been remiss in taking pics of your work.
I started cutting for Angie’s challenge which I’ve been talked into taking on!and bought a few plains to help out (and maybe a little bit of ribbon……for something?)and I laid out a new block from my “Parsons Geese” template set using some of the wonderful “Outback Wife” fabrics which I just adore!and finished it!Sunday was our Woolly Bits day and I spent it in the shop with my Woolly Bits class mates. I helped Jacinta with the binding for her quiltwhile admiring her little bagand this amazing rabbitLynne has finished her sweet little bag tooDeb is working on her embroideryCan’t show you Gail’s but I do like this fabric folder she hadJoy is working on “Sweet Sunday” blocks, prepping for moreand showing us these finished ones from this pile – so sweet!Lizzie had this gorgeous Orla Kiely tinwe enjoyed a delish lunchand perhaps some of us indulged in afternoon tea too!I had all my “Ruby May” Liberty cut out and started EPP prep for them (bit of a give away as to who had afternoon tea!!)and Jo visited showing us her quilt topand Neil also visited bringing his enormous quilt which he is endeavouring to machine quilt – not sure how he wrangles that in a domestic machine!Such a lovely time!
