Meeting up with the Sew Wots again

It was great to catch up with my little sewing group, the Sew Wots again, after missing out on the last couple of get-together when things conspired to get in the way.  So it was “hello”  once again to the ladies.

As usual, there was hand stitching going on, and plenty of chat and catching up with all the news.  Moira won the prize for the most Show and Tell of the morning.  She brought out two cushions which she had recently completed.  One with some of her beautiful embroidery, and the other using a French inspired feature fabric.

Then she showed us the most beautiful Durham style quilt.  The pretty fabric used in the plain strippy panels shaded from green, blue and lilac, and the quilt was expertly machine quilted by the very talented Paula of Rabbits Patch Quilting.  Moira told us she is keeping her lovely new quilt and it has pride of place on their bed.

Mary is enjoying doing the hand quilting on her wall hanging, but was unsure on how to continue.  Everyone threw a few ideas into the ring, which was very helpful.  This lovely quilt was purchased as a kit from Grandmother’s Garden quilt shop.

Tuesdays can be very busy and I often have a clash of several commitments happening on the same day.  I played hooky from the Probus Club meeting leaving Robin to attend on his own, and left the stitching group a little early to catch up with the Probus group going out to lunch in a local cafe.  Whew – so pleased I managed to fit both things in.  And I even managed to squeeze a visit to my favourite local quilt shop Krazy Cow on the way home to pick up a few essential items.  All in all, not a bad day!
