On Tuesdays is our small craft group which meets in the local church..... great venue - I am often child-minding grandie#4 (22 months) and he has a wonderful time kicking the ball and driving cars through the pews whilst we stitch and chat.
We are often looking for things to learn and make and this year I suggested a stitchery quilt which could then be made into a wall-hanging for the church
an appropriate BOM from last year HERE was used
(Paula has a lovely Home Sweet Home stitchery this year)
There was an existing box of scraps and we were determined to use them up
Different people made up the patches and I sewed it together - using entirely what they had available except for the wadding
A group effort is rather fun
This is a finished Christmas Item - which is a UFO from 2 years ago
I made the holly block when I was practicing machine applique using 'invisible thread'
and had the fabric ready cut
a bit of piecing and quilting
The finches seem happy to see in the Autumn
there are 29 in these branchs over the bird-feeder
there were lots more in the bath and at the seeds on the ground
I never get tired of watching them
Hope you can watch some happiness this week
