Patchwork Day By Distance: 2

The girls are coming, the girls are coming.  Yay! The Mt Perry Quilters travelled down, over or across to Narelle's place (me) today for a sewing good time. Work keeps me from joining in each month except for a quick visit at lunchtimes sometimes, so as it was school holidays and I was home; Patchwork Day was held at my home.

First order of business was to put the kettle on and break out the cupcakes. Then it was down to the real business of sewing. A quickish lunch break out on the verandah while enjoying a cool breeze

and then back to the sewing machines.  Not only was it a lovely day getting together, there was also lots of progress happening.

Margaret finished off her stunning quilt and then kept working on her bag.

Fay had made a start on her bag and was able to present the finished article by day's end.

Di was making great headway on her beautiful paper pieced blocks.

Kerry was full steam ahead and made this sweet bag from start to finish.

I'm pleased to have my Christmas swag all sewn up. Just adding some reindeer buttons between each flag for the finishing touch.

Nice to see Ruth was able to join in from a distance and get some sewing done. You were missed Ruth as were the other girls not able to join us.

Thanks everyone for the best day and I do hope I'll be able to get back into the swing of things next year ... fingers crossed.
