Stitching Mondays Christmas lunch

This time of the year is certainly busy with groups getting together for their last meeting of the year. The Stitching Monday group, an off shoot of my Pinestream Patchwork Quilters group, meet monthly and yesterday was the last meeting of the year. We took a shared lunch to enjoy together, and as someone remarked, there wasn’t a chocolate to be seen! Probably with all the Christmas break-ups happening, everyone decided to bring a plate of healthy food for a change. The table looked lovely set with a cloth and serviettes, with all the goodies temptingly set out.

During the day we all stitched together on our own projects. I noticed two Christmas stockings that were being finished off in time for Christmas. A couple of sewing machines were humming away, with both ladies making pieced borders to complete their respective quilts.

There was plenty of hand stitching being done, from applique, sewing down bindings, stitching on ric-rac. The club light box was put to good use as patterns were traced. Of course, we had to check out what everyone else was working on, and put the world to rights too.



Thanks, ladies, for your company and friendship during the year. I enjoy the Stitching Mondays so much that I take a day off work to attend. How’s that for dedication?
