10th August 2013

We kept our fingers busy on this perfect winters day, sharing some recently finished works & tales of our holidays for those of us having recently been away. 

10 Aug 2013 (4)10 Aug 2013 (5)Today our group had the pleasure of the company of three Margaret's! This beautiful stationary box was made by Margaret F. Inside were a variety of gift and birthday size cards. This one was hard to give back after photographing!

10 Aug 2013 (6)Margaret was also working on a duplication of this lovely ruffle/gathered flower which is actually purple – sorry Marg, my camera has decided to make it blue.

10 Aug 2013 (16) 10 Aug 2013 (18)Margaret F was recently in Hawaii where these beautiful fabrics and kits were purchased. She also brought along delicious peanut butter filled chocolate from her trip to share with us. No calories (when shared with friends haha) and delicious!

10 Aug 2013 (9)10 Aug 2013 (8)It was lovely to see Margaret L today and we were all excited & inspired to see her hand project bag. We love the zippered plastic pockets in this very versatile fold up bag and the stripped binding set it off beautifully.10 Aug 2013 (13) This pretty block is one of 16 that Margaret L is appliqueing.

10 Aug 2013 (3)Maureen had us amazed with her stunning hexagon quilt in the making. In “only” 3 months, Maureen has hand sewn hundreds, possibly thousands (I should have counted) of tiny wee hexies to make this beautiful quilt. Can’t wait to see the finished product, hopefully before it is gifted.

10 Aug 2013 (12)Maureen’s daughter Margaret was busy continuing with this beautiful embroidery –such exquisite hand work.

10 Aug 2013 (14)10 Aug 2013 (15)Julie brought along these two lovely quilts for show & tell. Lovely combination of colours, perfect to cover the knees on these cool winter nights.

10 Aug 2013 (11)This cool looking cat was Julie’s hand work project today. Julie kindly shared with us her back basting applique technique. Thanks for the tip to google “back basting” Julie for when we need help!

10 Aug 2013 (1)Ann proudly showed us her Beatrix Potter baby quilts, nearly finished and ready to gift to a friend with twins. So cute!

10 Aug 2013 (19)Last piccie is my handwork project. I’m teaching myself to crochet (thank you You-tube and google for the online tutorials haha) and this is the outcome so far.

Thanks for visiting. That’s all from us for now,

Happy Stitching,
