Show and Tell from Narelle

Here's the Red Delicious block I started embroidering at our last patchwork day ... all done! Yes, I did unpick all the chain stitching and used feather stitch with a much better result.

Both the second letters 'M' and 'E' were posted this month for 'Home Sweet Home' so they've been traced and stitched. Here they are all together ready for sashings.

After lunch today I've managed a moment to trim and stitch the 2 1/2" squares to block 15 of my 'Because I Said So' BOM after finishing the applique last night and a little this monring.

What has everyone else been up to?  I'm sure we'd all like to see what each other is sewing over the holiday period so if you'd like to send photos to I'll update our blog with your Show and Tells. They don't have to be finished projects ... works in progress will be lovely too!

Wishing everyone a Happy, Healthy and Joyous Christmas.

Farewell 2011

Today was our last get together for the year ... only 8 weeks and counting till we gather again.  Everyone brought a treat to share for morning tea and then it was on with the sewing.

Di was busy quilting on the quilt above while June was finishing piecing this lovely...just a border to go.

Ruth added the binding to this gorgeous machine quilting piece and Sandra made some progress with her Strips and Curves quilt.

The humidity had some of us wilting a little, especially Narelle who now will have to unpick half of the embroidery she managed to get done.

Till next year ladies ... keep those sewing machines going and your fingers stitching and may we have lots to Show and Tell on the 25th of January.

What will 2012 bring?

Check out some new additions to our sidebar.  Firstly are all the dates for our Patchwork days and then there's our Birthday List ... just a couple of things to help us.
