A great afternoon with friends

We had a great get together yesterday with six ladies coming along, for an afternoon of sewing.
Lorraine is up to the quilting stage of a Dianne Johnstone pattern. I suggested a spiderweb pattern across the background using a white metallic thread. 
I can't wait to see it finished.

 Margaret and Lyn are working on a their quilt tops. Margret R came along for a social outing after just spending the morning with her grandkids and Janet is finishing off her star quilt. 

Heather is still making Grandma flower garden flowers, last count she has 75 made. Heather also made a yummy orange poppy seed cake for me for my birthday. Isn't she lovely.

 When we first started meeting many years age we only had a packet of biscuits for our coffee, these days it is a smorgasbord of cakes, chocolates, dips, cheeses and a little wine to finish off the afternoon. A good afternoon had by all.


  1. Sounds like a perfect afternoon Cath... and HAPPY BIRTHDAY... hope you had fun :)))
