Sunday Stitchers

We have a bloggers group that gathers once a month for fun, laughter, food and even a bit of stitching. I've been slack. I don't think I've blogged about any meeting except the special one for Tatyana. I even forgot my camera last Sunday. Check out these girls. They have done wonderful posts about the day. Sandy, Susan, Teresa, Noela, Maria.
PS, Girls - I love how none of you photo shopped that uncontrolled hair of mine!


I have taken a photo of all the lovely FQs I received last Sunday as I was the Birthday Girl. Lovely to be spoilt.
Just to prove I am still working on 'Gossip in the Garden', here's my second block.  I hate quarter square triangle blocks. There is still the possibility that the block in the lower right corner maybe replaced.

 I had a bit of a setback prepping the large middle block. I did all the tracing and applied my staflex (very light interfacing) to the back of the background piece the same way I have always done. I scorched the back in several places. Unfortunately it was too obvious to ignore. Start again! Don't need holdups like this, not with everyone racing ahead of me!


 LOOK, HELEN, LOOK!!!!!!
Only 51 weeks late! I gave my birds glasses. At least that's what I'm saying now. I'm not unpicking the too dark thread. Especially seeing I already unpicked it after not sewing' right sides together'.
Sorry everyone. Helen knows what it is about.


Retreat is a week away. So looking forward to it. Maybe real winter weather this year? Never know.

Better get off to do some preparations.

Take care,
Cheryl

Your quilt is coming along nicely despite the setback and looks great! The birds look really cute with their 'glasses'.
