Squealers

Had our first Squealers get together  for 2018 yesterday.  Yay!  Of course there was heaps of food for afternoon tea!and lots of show and tell, including this pretty yarn that Miss E found when clearing out her Mum’s stuff which she’s kindly donated to me (Ma Kettle might be getting another cardi!)Miss E also has a gorgeous old box which belonged to her grandmotherit’s an old apothecary box which held her grandmother’s embroidery cottons, and now holds Miss E’s (the “holes” were for little bottles of potions – it did sit higher up but the ledge is long gone) Irene joined us for the day bringing her stunning show and tell, two new quilts which I have permission to show you.  Can’t wait for these Irene Blanck patterns to come out! We did do lots of sewing/yarn work too.  I made another basket block (or two!)Miss E is making use of those embroidery threadsJen was trying to teach herself to ripple crochet (Helen where were you??!!)Irene worked on yet another new quiltand had a gorgeous hexi bag for her “stuff”Karen is working on some embroideries to go with her star blocksand she has been doing some embroidery on a “supper cloth”Andrea is appliqueingMaree is working on her bordersand a “thank you” to Miss Lynnie for a pair of cute thumb/finger pincushions!  So tiny!(We missed you H)
