Today

started out a lovely day, sunny and not too cold, but then the weather packed up and we had rain, hail and cold wind!! I went down to sewing group at St Leonard's, I did some stitching on the Christmas stitchery, not a lot of a lot a chatting happened! We  had a new lady come for a look today and so we  had lots to chat about. Lynda showed us a quilt she had made for her brother
This is made in the colours in his local pub in Ireland! The back is all in two and a half inch strips of the fabric left from the front. Great isn't it??


We have many of these in the garden at present, no fairies or gnomes to be seen though!! They do yellow where your fingers touch them so we are not eating them!! Better to be safe!
Time to ring my Mum in NZ so had better shake a leg!!
Happy sewing.

What a great quilt, weather has been a little crazy here too. Had a lovely walk with the boys this morning in the rain.

Wonderful beer quilt, always lovely chatting at group meetings. The weather has gone crazy but wonderful if you have time for stitching projects. Enjoy your evening :)

Clever quilt. No fairies under your mushrooms? No binding fairy? Poor you!

That quilt is stunning! I'd be a bit worried about those mushrooms if they turn yellow when you touch them too.
