Vitamin Q weekend

Thursday evening, directly from the quilt meeting, I and Irene drove up to the cabin where four other friends was waiting for us to arrive. As usual a lot of boxes, bags and the sewingmachine had been packed. Think I had brought enough projects to stay away from home for a whole month. We always brings a lot of projects......just in case LOL

Daytime I was sewing blocks for Svennebrevet , and manage to sew a lot of blocks. And in the evening I was stitching on more blocks for My Garden.

I am sewing on two quilts. One in brown/blue and one in pink/red/white. And you see a lot of blocks was done this weekend. Still several blocks to sew :)

Teamwork making dinner.

We have to find a place for both sewing, cutting and ironing.
Every inch of the cabin is in use.

Mette was quilting on her beautiful Tailfeather quilt.

Aud is handquilting on her Trip around the world quilt.

Irene sewed a lot on her summer quilt.

And this fellow came for a visit friday evening. I guess she was curious about all the laughter and sewingmachine noise.

Now I am back home. This has been a great weekend together with wonderful friends. And a lot of vitamin Q.

Saying for today:

A good friend is a connection to life -
a tie to the past, a road to the future,
the key to sanity in a totally insane world.

Your stitching weekends are a bit of an addiction, but a lovely one :))
It is interesting to see Mette finishing her Tail Feathers, I finished mine last November (on my blog - "my quilts"), I hope she is enjoying it as much as I did!
