Sew Wot Tuesday

It was my turn to host the Sew Wot ladies on Tuesday, and Heather B was the first to arrive – while Robin was busy pushing around the vacuum cleaner.  I had asked him to help with the last minute chores, as  I had been busy in the kitchen organizing the morning tea so needed a helping hand.  Carol arrived soon after, and kindly brought me a lovely white lily, with gorgeous perfume.

Soon everyone had arrived and the ladies were busy stitching, or knitting, and chatting away merrily, of course.

That’s Mary hiding behind the quilt she finished for Rae, who is not at all well.  Rae can now pass the finished quilt on to one of her grandchildren.

Helen had been busy too and had quilted two of Pam’s quilts which she had started before she passed away.  These will be returned to Pam’s family.

Carol loved stitcheries but she is all “Sunbonnet Sue” stitched out, she told us.  These designs were purchased while on a trip to Canada, and Carol has used lots of bright and cheery 1930s fabrics in the sashing.

We had a very pleasant morning indeed.  We reminisced about our days as young Mum’s, way back then.  And what it was like to take our brand new baby home from hospital not really sure if we were up to the task.  We wished our Sew Wot friend Rae well for her birthday – she is certainly in our thoughts as she fights her illness.  Rae was the one who invited me to join the Sew Wots when I moved to Levin (without knowing any local quilters) so she is a very special lady to me.

Sounds like a lovely day for you all Jenny - it's always nice to sit and stitch (or knit) in the company of good friends. It's lovely to see the finished quilts within the group...such a lovely variety.
