Thursday afternoon after work, my car was loaded with my sewingmachine, a lot of projects and my friend Irene. Then we drove up to the cabin where four other friends waited for us.
If I do not remember wrong this is the 12th year we are meeting like this. So it is a tradition for us to have this quilt trip to the cabin
One of the ladies finished this lovely hexagon table cloth this weekend. Looks lovely on the outdoor table.
Every corner of the cabin is used for quilting. A cutting post at the kitchen bench.
I had big plans making a little bag from this hen stitchery, but of course I had not brought the fabrics needed for this project. Even though I had a big bag full of fabric, the one I wanted was back home. Luckily I had brought a lot of other projects to work on.
Hand quilting needs a comfortable place to sit.
We had a lot of rain this weekend, but saturday was a sunny warm day. Sitting outside with handsewing in the sun was very nice. I did some applique on a table runner. It is an old WISP I found in my project drawer when organizing it some weeks ago. Too beautiful not to be finished.
Quilters on a row. Enjoying the sun.
All kind of projects this weekend. A lot of laughter and good conversations. Good food and a lot of card games. This has been a weekend filled with vitamin Q.
I did some stitching, a little bit hand applique on the table runner, finished four miniatureblocks for a mini sampler (forgot to take a photo of them), and I made these three make up purses.
It’s been a wonderful long weekend
Saying for today:
A true friend is one who thinks
you are a good egg
even if you are half-cracked
