On a crisp (very crisp!) Winter's Saturday in June the SSS mob motored down the road to Sue's place in the country. This is just a taste (slight "pun" here!) of the day.
The out-looks from the nice warm insides are just great!
Winter skys, ducks on the pond (actually the dam!)
Fruit trees, bare at the moment, but just wait for Spring etc, etc, etc!!!!
Nearly makes us all want to move to the country!!!
However.....onto the real reasons for our journey!!!
Ann is working on a very special project for a very special "little person" which includes working in wool felt.
I had rediscovered my Antique Wedding Quilt and Morrell blocks, dusted them off and am busy trying to complete the same!
Merri and Barb where also busy stitching away.
It's a shame, Deb, Clare and Meghan had other engagements on the day.
But, we had one "extra"...............................
Not only was Sue working on her Hexagon quilt........which is growing beautifully,and a project we all want to start!! She was also busy in the kitchen making very nice things for us to eat and drink. I think I can speak for all of us when I say that Sue is a great cook...............and we get the benefit of that talent! Yumm!
After the "traditional" lunch feast...........and the "traditional" after lunch coffees/teas.(we are a group that is very big on "tradition"!).........the sewing reappeared and just take a look at what Di is working on!!!
Fussy cutting, colours to die for, matching seams.....all the hallmarks of another beautiful quilt!
That's all I have ...........after another wonderful day of good friends, great food, world problem-solving conversation (maybe some goss!) and making time to stitch we all said our good-byes and motored back up the road to our homes.
Thanks Sue and SSS for another grand day!
Happy Australia Day!
