Wonderful Day Stitching with Friends and Update on Pyramid Quilt.



Stitching with Friends 

Another wonderful day spent stitching with friends at Shelley's house. Everyone was in high spirits especially Andrea, who always has us in stitches with her antics and commentary. Jackie, Carol , Anne and Carin were all working away on their projects joining in laughing and chatting as they stitched. Lyn was working on another of her gorgeous William Morris blocks. Shelley was finishing a cute quilt for her pregnant daughter, due any day now. Apologies, I did forget to take photos .... 

I did manage to finish another block for my pyramid quilt and when I got home, I managed to join the bottom row. I must say I am truly enjoying my journey with hand piecing my quilts. The work is much slower by hand ,but more relaxing and satisfying.

Sit and Stitch

     
I had such a lovely day today, full of surprises and new friendships.  As I was walking in to Sewn and Quilted  sit and stitch Friday group I caught up with Lyn who I met over a year ago and had not seen since. We immediately started chatting and catching up, then out of the corner of my eye I saw a face I recognised, Melody from The House on the Side of the Hill. I was happy to finally meet and chat with her. Melody as her blog is a wealth of information,chatty, warm and friendly. To go to Melody's blog click The  House on the Side of the Hill

FNWF

My new necklace and  bag that I made to match,  modelled by DH (Jim) hehe.....I bought the pattern on Tuesday at Cranbourne Gardens when we  went to see Leesa Chandlers collection. I started Friday morning as we were going to see our grandsons at little athletics after dinner. I ended up with a chill and went to bed early with a couple Panadol, but did manage to finish off this morning....

Happy stitching.....

Chateau Hexagon Update

I have finished the top of Chateau Hexagon by Lynette Anderson. I chose a plain border instead of the scrappy border Lynette had. .Next up start thinking about quilting.
