It always amazes me just how quickly our Sew Wot mornings roll around. We met at Moira’s home today, had a look at her new Archgola over the patio, then settled down inside. There was not a great deal of stitching going on, but the knitting needles were clacking on the sofa, while Moira worked on her tapestry.
Heather, Carol and Moira
Heather proudly showed us her wonderful masterpiece, stitched in wool and felt onto a dark green hessian background. The house patterns were from Carol, and the embellishments used were from her stash, with some special buttons gifted from Moira and Mary. Each building was embellished with buttons, lace, and embroidery stitches – so much detail had gone into making this.
There was one other item for Show and Tell, a very pretty quilt made by Moira from mainly Kaffe Fasset fabrics. The quilt had just come back from being commercially quilted.

Moira served us a lovely Morning Tea, commenting that she had made the fruit and nut slice from one of Jamie Oliver’s recipes from his TV programme. We all thought it was absolutely delicious, so Moira kindly copied out the recipe for us all to try at home. And Heather had brought along some fruit for us all from her country garden, many thanks for that.
Another lovely morning, and all I managed to stitch was a green leaf or two! Never mind, it was great to catch up with the Sew Wot ladies again.
