This time last week, we’d hit the road to venture up to Mary’s lovely shop and have a day stitching with friends – SUCH a great thing to do!!
Patch n Quilt was looking – and proved – very tempting, and we all participated in some retail therapy (so good for the soul!)
We had lunch at Canteena just up the road from the shop, but I’m so out of practice I’d forgotten my camera and totally forget that I could use my phone for photos – duh!
Did remember after lunch to take pics of what we were working on (and the shop pics)……
I was binding a new quilt
Helen worked on her pinwheels
Karen had been to my Double Wedding Class last year and had cut heaps ready to stitch on the day
and she’d finished the quilt top for her youngest grand daughter
Irene has a new pattern for these delightful needlecases “Nova Needlecases” (contact the shop on the link above if you’d like one)
and she was working on a new applique project – which will become a pattern
and Veronique was also working on a new applique
It was a fabulous day and we’re hoping to get together again in a couple of months.
Spending time with quilty friends is extra special. It looks like lots of fun for everyone.
What a productive day!
