It was my turn to host the Sew Wots today – and it was lovely to catch up with them after our Aussie holiday. Heather B brought me a bunch of lovely daisies from her garden, thanks so much Heather, much appreciated.

There was only one item for Show and Tell, Helen had made a net-ball quilt for her grand-daughter. Helen used sporty action panels together with pretty pieced flowers, and the bright coloured borders contrasting against the black setting it off nicely.

There was knitting and stitching going on, magazines to be flicked through, and news to catch up on. The ladies were sad to hear that our long awaited Indian-Pacific train trip didn’t go ahead. Never mind, we will be getting a refund, so hopefully will plan to go again next year.

Gemma made an appearance, and was petted and cooed over. But she was in a “let’s run around fast” mode going nineteen to the dozen. Helen picked her up for a little cuddle.

The weather today was delightful so later on in the afternoon I sat outside under our sun canopy and did a little more stitching, this time stitching down the scrappy black binding on my Soul Searching quilt. With just this last step to do it had been put aside and forgotten. It’s a big quilt, so not quite finished yet, but certainly getting closer.
