At last! I was able to go to sewing on Saturday. It’s been SUCH a long time since I’ve spent time with any of my sewing friends. There was lots of news to catch up on, and I, for one, had a much needed belly laugh or two! We met at Kaye’s lovely home; I think I’ve mentioned before that Kaye is a bit (just a little bit) of a collector and she had some new birds on her wall from a trip earlier this year to Portugal as well as an amazing drawing.We all contributed to afternoon teaand there was lots of show and tell from my friendsOops, sorry! How did my afternoon tea get in there!! Ahem…….
Kaye has nearly finished the quilt that she designed using my “Elwood Rose” template; she’s just putting on another border and her “Boston Common” quilt is back from the quilterLove the backing that Kaye made from left overs (in a split 9-patch design)Helen has been hand quilting like mad over Winter, and this one just needs bindingand this one she’s finished for her grandsonMaree has the bulk of her “Emma Mary” quilt finished and is just deciding on a border treatmentMiss E hand stitched some sections of a shirt that she’s making (by machine).
