Sunday Sewing...

Where does time go? As I sit here on a dark and cold Sunday evening writing this post, it is very hard to imagine that only last week Paul and I were sitting under the beautiful Banyan tree in our hotel courtyard drinking pretty coloured drinks with pineapple pieces and little umbrellas! Unfortunately holidays don't last forever and it is back to work for both of us now...

Although... there is always time for some quiet stitching! The Sunday 'appliqué' group had a delightful afternoon of stitching today (mmmm... in hind sight looking at the photos maybe not all of us were appliquéing).

Sonja was working on her amazing Jane Pizar quilt, all redrafted by Sonja herself from a large photo!

Julie M was appliquéing down her final border on Mrs Billings, almost ready to be quilted and finished for our upcoming display. 
More information on that soon!

Mary was making red roses for the border of a large appliqué quilt. 4 down, only 38 more to go!!!!

Julie C has been stitching an alternate inner border to Mrs Billings. Check out all of those fussy cut squares.

 Ann was stitching down flowers for her 'Antique Wedding Sampler' setting triangles.

And Val showed us her progress on 'Barrington Court'. 

While we were away there were lots of fabric deliveries too! Let me sort them out properly and I will post photos as soon as possible...

Back soon,


  1. Wow, hast Du schöne Sachen in Arbeit. Wunderschön.
