I’ve been meaning to write this post since Wednesday night! I have no idea where last week went… do you? So now I shall just update you on both of the sewing dates I had last week…
Wednesday morning I dropped DS off at school and then headed over to Mum and Dad’s for a cuppa. Here is what awaited me:
This is a typical Dutch breakfast – cup of tea, soft boiled egg and a beschuitje with sugar
After this lovely start to my day, I drove over to my sewing date with Susan. She had a table set up specially for me!
I had Baby B with me, and worked on some of the 100 patches. I am getting there :
This is a pic of Susan’s lovely Gammill room:
It is MUCH neater than mine!!!!
Susan finished sewing borders on a bed runner:
More about this pattern on her blog…
After working on some of the 100 patches, I managed to get the binding on Wiggly Whimsy:
Yay, it is nearly done!!
On Saturday I usually go to a patchwork group in my old hometown. This week they all came to my place instead to see my stash, sewing room, and junk
I worked hard to get the room ready…. but needed help with removing this unwanted visitor:
Oops, sorry, it’s rather out of focus… maybe my hands were a bit shaky? Here’s one closer up:
Yep, a huntsman…. with what looks like cobwebs on his legs… hmmm… must dust…. so out he went down the back paddock…
I am sure the ladies were happy he wasn’t there when they got here…. We all settled in to some lovely chatting, ooohing over fabric and sewing machines… when suddenly there was a knock at the door and another visitor! Thankfully it wasn’t the huntsman coming back, but it was this cute little thing:
A little lost kitty that had been hanging around the elderly lady’s house across the road. She is blind, and her carer came to ask if it was our cat. Sadly I had to say no…. so she said she’d have to take her to the pound… whereupon I took the gorgeous little thing and asked if any of the ladies wanted a kitten
One of the ladies said she would take it home and I will hang up some posters in the neighbourhood to see if we can get this little kitten back home again. It is not a feral one, looks like it has been well cared for, so hopefully we will find its owners… anyone reading my blog recognize it?!
It settled in quite happily with us for the afternoon:
I did manage to get a few stitches in, in amongst having cups of tea, chatting, and cuddling kittens.. I sewed this heart to the back of my gorgeous heart quilt:
Now it can go on the wall:
Well, that is all for now… got a busy week ahead and not sure how much sewing will get done, but oh well… hope you all can do some for me!
