I had a great time at my sewing group on Saturday, don’t we all just love to get together with other quilters to swap ideas, admire work, chat and of course eat cake! But, my group meets only every four weeks (just as well for my waistline) so I LOVE to follow blogs for my daily fix.
I worked so hard this Saturday, and am proud to say I made 20 of the 64 blocks for my City Lights Quilt. You like?
We are also doing a group project, it’s actually a first although we have been together for about five years, you see we were originally two groups, the Special Needs, and the Smaries but as numbers dwindled we joined together to become the Special Smarties. There are only seven of us plus Jan who owns the shop, Cotton Tree in Mickley Square, northeast England, who makes copious amounts of tea and coffee and dispenses advice, encouragement, and tuition if we need it. Sadly our oldest member has some health problems and the travel is getting a bit much, hence the group project. We have all made blocks to make a lap quilt for Paula. I just need the final two and my job is to make the top.
We chose the Circle of Friends quilt because thats what we are.
Noticed the pics are getting better? well..........a bit better. Partly 'cos I am learning how to use the settings but also I used a 'proper' camera instead of my phone, or tablet. One of the blogs I follow recently posted about taking pics and annoyingly I forgot to save it. I'll try to find it, it made me want to do better, if only we could get some sun, and the rain would stop long enough to take them out side............ If you have seen such a post and remember which blog it was I would be very grateful if you would let me know.
The only thing left to say is I haven’t started FMQ a sample yet and yes, I’m still procrastinating, but, I have a day off this week and guess what I will be doing? No I won’t still be talking about it, promise (I think), I WILL just do it so look in soon and I will post a pic.
