Sew Wot Tuesday

The Sew Wot girls came calling today, it was my turn to be hostess.  With a couple of them away we still had a nice little group.  Some stitching, a lot of chatting, just the usual Sew Wot morning.

Heather E, Moira, Carol and Helen

Everyone made a fuss of Gemma, she has grown so much since the last time the ladies were here.  We had to make sure she didn’t run out the door as people were arriving, and then she spent the rest of the morning snoozing on top of her cat tower.

Gemma snoozing the morning away.

Helen had a pretty little cot quilt to show us – the only item for Show and Tell.  She was finishing stitching the binding down, and then the quilt was going to be put away in her “Grandma Box” for the arrival of a grand baby in the future.  Its such a pretty quilt,  made from a 30s Jelly Roll and backed with soft flannel.

While Helen was working on the quilt binding the others were busy too.  Carol was knitting, Moira was doing her tapestry, Heather E had more hexagons on the go, and I did a little work on my stitchery.  Then I produced my Christmas gifts from pen-friend Carol in South Dakota to show, a little pouch she had made me, complete with small pin cushion to fit inside, and a pair of Fons and Porter thread snips.

So nice to catch up with everyone again, and lovely to welcome them to our home.

Everyone looks very settled, stitching and chatting away. Gemma doesn't look too phased at all.
