Saturday stitching

It’s about a month since I’ve seen any of my sewing buddies, so luckily we’d scheduled a sewing day at the quilt shop on Saturday.

As always there was a load of lovely goodies for morning/afternoon tea

and a little bit of shopping happened too, including this bag for Miss Sand Helen’s selectionto add into her appliquéMaree’s version of Judy’s “Emma Mary” quilt is growingKaye excitedly showed us two tops that she’s certainly Substantially Progressed as part of her 17ufosin2017, the first I think from a pattern in an Australian Patchwork and Quilting magazine from several years ago, “Boston Commons”and this one “Civil War Bride” from ThreadbearMiss E knitted a hat for one of her daughters on huge needlesand had enough yarn left over to make a Pom Pom, then she kindly modelled it for us Kaye and Jenny spent most of the day at the cutting table, Kaye working on “Dear Jane” (another on her 17ufosin2017 list)and Jenny on an old pattern from Susan Smith “The Civil War Quilt”Andrea was hand quiltingDonna was doing EPPKaren blanket stitchingand me, a bit of “Ruby MayIt was so lovely to catch up on everyone’s news and to spend time chatting and laughing with these  friends.

    Such wonderful food and sewing! I always enjoy the eye candy with my morning coffee. And enjoyed that there was a pix of the moose that periodically visits my yard…..they are so big. When he is there the dog has to wait until he is gone to go outside!!!!
