Birthday "Girls"

I thought you might like to see what was in those little packages from my last blog.
Here they are all lined up in my sewing room, how cute is that,
the extra one is mine.

Bit Bags.
We celebrated five of the "girls" birthdays this week at Quilters haven, where we meet for Wednesday Club. Diets went out the window as Maggie had made a huge Malteaser cake and Jenny made lots of individual Victoria sandwich cakes. "Yummy", though she did put creme fresh in the middles instead of cream. Jenny's token to our diets, I think not.

There were lots of Quilty things, and hand made gifts. Ann had made two great pouches for Alison, Fiona some lovely covered hangers for Ann and so it went on. I was very remiss or I was too busy eating cake. I forgot to take photos.

I am not doing very well with this losing weight thing. Last week, I went to our annual Stitch & Sip meal with all my knitting friends at Main's ,where we meet on Thursday evenings to do our knitting. No knitting was done , only eating and what a lovely meal!

Star blocks so far.

Some of the blocks we are making from our scraps, left over from our Friendship Quilts we all made last year, are coming in. We are each making one or two star blocks and when it's put together it will go to the Linus charity,


I am getting on with the quilting on this UFO. I intend to make the binding today, so as soon as the quilting is finished on goes the binding, which is my favourite bit of the whole quilt.

Keep safe and keep stitching...........Doti..
