Comings and Goings

After a change of venues for this month, 3 of us ventured outside and sat in the nice warm sun to do some stitching, chatting, magazine browsing and of course enjoy a cuppa.

Our local QCWA branch was holding a competition and hoy morning which involved a few of our patchwork ladies so we closed the doors for the morning and went and enjoyed a lovely morning tea and game of 'Hoy' (card game).

Narelle and Fay then headed back to patchwork where Fay continued to work on another block for her Candlewicking Quilt.

Soon they were joined by Ruth who brought along her dye painting for basting. Can you see the cute little birdie?

Narelle had to pop out for a bit and when she returned Sandra had also just arrived. What a difference sewing can make to a pile of fabric. Last month at patchwork Sandra was busy gathering fabric squares (see photo in previous post) ... and here's today's progress pic.

Margaret had also arrived and shared with us her lovely completed crochet rug.

 Margaret has also been very busy with machine embroidery ...

and more beautiful antique blocks.

Kerry was able to join in after work and all then all too soon it was time for us to bid farewell to another patchwork day ... one filled with lots of comings and goings ... loads of laughter ... and a little forgetfulness :)

Roll on August 10th when we gather once more.
