I'm just squeaking in under the wire, getting a summer post in before the start of autumn tomorrow. How quickly the seasons go, but always, there is stitching, knitting, appliqué and quilting to keep us busy, and our friendships that keep us together as a group. We love our Thursday mornings!
The cottage garden has been a joy to see every time we venture down the walkway. This photo was taken midsummer and flowers continued to grow taller and fill out the space, along with vegetables!
Here are just a few of the things we've been working on recently.
Susie has been busy, as always.
Here is her seaside themed quilt,
some lovely pieced quilts,
and an intricately appliquéd and pieced quilt.
Susie also made some cute needle books to give as gifts.
Here they are, front...
And on her design wall, a neutral log cabin quilt is in process.
Carol made this sweet baby blanket,
an adorable I-Spy quilt,
and this lovely knitted shawl.
Pat R. said that this is what happens when you let your grandson
choose the pattern for his bunny's new sweater!
And he loves it!
Pat also made this precious teddy for a lucky little girl.
Here is Jane's wonderful boy's sweater with very special buttons!
Ann's embroidered quilt has been beautifully quilted,
and she is currently working on hand appliquéd
squares for a new quilt.
Barbara, who has had a very busy summer,
added French knots to some vintage hand embroidered quilt squares.
Judy embroidered a little lady she had doodled,
tried some torn paper collages with embroidery,
and worked on an embroidered page for her fabric book.
So now, grandchildren are back to school, summer vacations are over,
and the table is filling up again with new projects every week.
Here's wishing everyone who reads this
a very happy Autumn!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
