Some of us made two blocks, some made one and helped with the binding and quilting. I know this was quilt made with a huge amount of love, to give Tracee and her hubby comforting hugs for many years to come.
I have to confess that not one stitch was sewn, time just disappeared with eating, Tracee made a sensational lunch!, chatting and laughing...heaps of the latter.
It took several attempts to get a group photo because there was so much chatting and laughter happening
Such a great bunch of women! We had the best day, I floated home on a cloud of happiness, still giggling at some of the comments made during the afternoon, but some comments must remain at sewing days, so I can't share sorry!!
Today has been a beautiful day, I have been preparing for a retreat this coming week and sitting in the sun! Multi tasking!! Lol!!
The supervisor has been keeping an eye on me!!
cutting out applique shapes in the sun!
I had two happy mail deliveries this week, one I gave the mailman a shock as he delivered the envelope to the door and I had been lying in bed reading!! Poor man!! Confronted by bed hair and panda eyes!!
This beautiful book is full of amazing paper pieced patterns created by a Scottish woman who lives in NZ and quilted by Leeanne of Quiltmekiwi, who does the most beautiful quilting. Leeanne is currently doing blog posts of the various patterns/animals from the book.
and the other special arrival was this book, cute crochet dolls with many changes of clothes. Another one day project!!
I had better head off and get things organised for tomorrow.
