We had a wonderful Sunday Sewing Patchwork Party this last weekend. It's such a lot of fun to sew and natter and plot and plan in a large group... and have your lunch prepared for you! I swooshed around the lovely Checkley Village Hall for you, taking a few pictures of what some of the ladies were working on...
|Jean Bean was appliqueing letters for her gifting quilt backing|
|Lynda finished her piano keys and yes we did note how perfectly co-ordinated she dressed!|
|PM Pam finished one of a set she's making, the new 3-Piece will need new throws|
|Mrs. Merlot spent her day quilting the fairies|
|PM Pams blocks for the other sofa throws in the set|
|Sporty Sue worked on her Split Hour Glass blocks|
|I started work on a commissioned T-Shirt quilt... dreadful fabrics!!|
|New Sue made more giant pinwheel blocks|
|Loulou was making pinwheel blocks too, but smaller|
|There's always someone working on festive projects, Longport Lynda!|
|Fran Cupcake loves to make little embellished pouches|
|Farmer Lynda, two at one time...|
|Kate's Lynda wrapped a cord ready to make a pot.|
|Annbacan worked on a family request, a festive table topper|
|Maggie brought several projects and did a bit on all.|
|Jenny Barlaston made premature baby quilts and little notebook covers|
|Queen Jacquie had a lovely day quilting her daisies|
|All Day Di blanket stitched and quilted her snowman snowflake|
|Christine continued with her Pineapple blocks|
|Sue worked on a few things, like this embroidery|
|Our Carol made a Muppet! |
No, I jest... it's a ballerina from the shopping channel.
The next Sunday Sewing Patchwork Party at Checkley Village Hall will be on 22nd April. 9:30am - 4:30pm but we have a long retreat to look forward to before then...
Can we have too much fun?
I will let you know if it ever becomes too much fun!!!
