The Sew Wots came calling today, so it was lovely to catch up with them again after a little break. Several came bearing “Get Well” gifts too, so that was a lovely surprise. Helen presented me with this lovely white orchid, and Carol gave me the pretty pink cyclamen and card. Heather B was planning ahead and gave me two pots of soup – to eat for lunch or pop in the freezer, she said. Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness, ladies.
Beautiful floral get-well gifts
The knitting needles were busy all morning. Mary, Helen and Heather B showed that they had no trouble knitting and chatting together at the same time. Rae was knitting as well, and Moira and Heather E were stitching away on their projects.
Mary, Helen and Heather B all busy knitting.
The Sew Wot ladies all took part in a mystery quilt challenge recently – except for me as I wanted to concentrate on getting my UFOs under control. They brought them along for Show and Tell and what a variety there was. Although everyone had used the same pattern, the individual choices of colour, fabric and borders really did make such a difference.

Rae’s Dinosaur mystery quilt
Moira used Kaffe Fassett fabrics and a different border technique
I just loved Mary’s version with the hand embroidered centre blocks
I had a little Show and Tell of my own and showed the ladies what I had done so far UFO number 5 – the lucky number dice roll this week. With a couple of appointments to attend, hopefully I’ll get a bit of spare time later in the week to work on this project.
The dice rolled around to UFO number 5 this week.
There was plenty of news to catch up on, morning tea to eat, knitting and stitching to do, and all too soon the morning came to an end. It was so nice to be the hostess today.
Then later in the afternoon I had a visit from Sandra, former President of Town and Country Quilters. I had stepped down from my quilt club committee duties at the AGM last month, and Sandra called around to present me with a Thank You gift for my time on committee, so that was a lovely surprise.
