Saturday while I was still in NYC, I had a few pals over to chat and hand sew. My friend Lynn Roddy Brown from Texas, was up visiting, so I gathered a few pals to have a little sewing bee. Lynn and I met last year at fall Festival in Houston, when we were seated next to each other at our book signings... You may recall the post, about that... We were having such a ball, that we were reminded that if we weren't having so much fun, we might sell some books. haha! Well, we did sell a lot of books, and we sold each others books! She's scrappy, I'm scrappy, we were hawking those books left and right, and became instant friends. (Never mind the fact that she had half of Texas lined up to buy one or all of her three books...lucky me, I could steal a few!) hehe
Kim was appliquéing some circles down, for the NYC MOD bee. How cute is it? Gotta love dots!
Helen, brought some EPP hexagons to play with. and Lynn and I worked on Bindings. Mostly we chatted and giggled a lot, ( and had sugar and caffeine, so we were good to go!)
I'm so happy to say I finished a binding on a small quilt that was taking me forever to finish! LOL! It feels good to have it done, I don't know why some projects make you procrastinate more then others!?? This is the Birds of Paradise quilt... OLD POST HERE the embroidery pattern for the BIRDS is in my shop.. one day I will get the rest of my shop set up... (Pattern here) ...MORE TIME PLEASE!!!
It was a lovely day with friends.. I need to make more time to do that...
Do you belong to a local quilt group in your area besides a guild?
