Spring Sewing Party part 2

The quilt inspector is supervising my needle turn. Frida cat loves to sleep nearby me while I am sitting in my favourite sewing chair.

I manage to cut all the pieces for the outher border on my Bread and Butter quilt. And started to place it. The doorbell rang, and a good quilt friend of mine came for a visit.
She brought some lovely spring flowers for me.

We enjoyed some tea and chocolate while chatting. I stitched a lot of my cats. February block almost done.
Afterwords I basted my Easter Bunnies quilt and now I am ready for some pizza, redwine and quilting in front of the tv.

It has been a fun Spring Sewing Party day. I have visited (not all of them) the other blogs who joined this Pary and there is a lot going on. Because of the time differance some have just started and I guess some have already gone to bed. Hope we can repeat this another weekend :)

Hugs to you all :)

Beautiful stitching, May Britt!
Sounds like you've had a nice day sewing! The spring flowers must have been a real pick-me-up!

quiltngrandma said...

I am so impress with your stitching and how good it looks. I have a question about putting it in you quilts. I would be afraid that the thread would get cought on something and get pulled out how do you keep that from happening?

Please show us your progress on the cat embroidery. I love seeing what you have done.
