When I turned the calendar over yesterday and saw December 1st staring at me I was rather taken aback. Where has the year gone? Mine has been super busy - lots of fun times with my wonderful sewing sisters; a great holiday in France and North America with a dear friend of over 35 years (who proudly boasts about not being able to thread a needle!) and in between there has been work (to pay for the
stash retirement fund), plus theatre visits and concerts, time with family (very important) and every thing else that fills our days. So please forgive me my tardiness and the slightly late writing of this post.
It is just over 2 weeks since the sisters gathered at my home for our regular Saturday of sewing. Di was an absentee as she was teaching a class in Kilmore. While a very tired Deb was a late arrival after getting up early to catch a flight back to Melbourne from Adelaide - how is that for dedication, you can't miss sewing.
Here is a little sample of what was being worked on.
From Deb, a block from Corliss's latest pattern, The Caswell Quilts. You can find the pattern at Threadbear.
Merri has dug into her PHDs and recommenced work on an earlier Corliss pattern - Civil War Bride.
While Barb was very industrious, finishing 2 blocks for her Dear Jane.
And me, I was able to show a finished top, well almost finished, just the outer border to attach. It is my version of Di's Antique Wedding Sampler. Not the best photo but you get the idea.
