A Lovely Day of Sewing



What would an Easter Saturday Stitching day be without a bowl of Easter Eggs ?




Or two.......  A couple of friends and I planned a stitching day in my new sewing room and Dawn had planned one with Judy half way across the country so that we could all stitch together in spirit. 


Look at the gorgeous Cup Cakes Sandra arrived with - They were delicious !  We had some show and tell and showed each other the progress on some of our WIP's.


This is where I am with Berries and Bluebirds (Designed by Gail Pan).  I really must get back in to this one.



We decided that it would be nice to do a project together so that we could keep each other motivated - As we all have grand daughters we decided that this gorgeous pattern by Natalie Ross - Happy Happy Garden was perfect.




Here is my progress for the day - My aim is to get quite a bit of it appliqued by Tuesday night when the girls come back for our next stitching session.  I wonder how I'll go?


I was pleased to be able to get a few more rows done on my Brick Quilt too - I am loving the look of it.


Strawberry Fields by Fig Tree Quilts with White Bella Solid is a gorgeous combination.  I can't wait until it's done.

I hope you had a relaxing Easter Saturday and I hope that Easter Bunny pops by your house tonight.

Hugs - Fee XX

Glad you have had such a lovely sewing day, me too. Loving your work. I've never tried a Brickwork quilt, you may have just inspired me. Happy Easter, hope the Easter Bunny finds you. xxx

You have 3 gorgeous projects in the go Fee. I love the brickwork too. It is such a great pattern that shows off beautiful fabrics rather than complicated stitching. Strawberry Fields looks wonderful in it. Tracee xx

Looks like a fun day together. Cute cupcakes...and Easter eggs in glass bowls always look so appealing. Love the brickwork quilt....my eye is always drawn to the Strawberry Fields range when I see it. So lovely (must get some, haha) Happy Easter.
