Friday Sewing Girls

Today we gathered for our first Friday sewing day since December.  There was lots of laughter, eating and solving the problems of the world.

Michelle was very busy preparing and cutting out all these VERY TINY pieces of wool for a beautiful needlecase.

I, on the other hand, managed to applique 1 1/2 half circles on my quilt in 4 hours???

Oh well, Max thought it was acceptable.....

I am very very slow at hand applique. I did a single large dresden plate last year. Applying the finished plate to the background took me at least 5 hours! Your quilt is going to look great though; I love those half circles.

Happy stitching,

Are you meant to get sewing done on Sewing Days???

I think we must be the same the world over when we get together - food tasting, problem solving . . . a little stitching in between. Glad you had a good day.

Regards, Sue
