Sewing with Friends!


A couple of my friends came over to sew!  We had a wonderful time visiting and working on projects.  My one friend, Ann, brought a few things to show to encourage me.  She is such a wonderful quilter I am not sure I was encouraged! lol  She made this lovely Christmas tree skirt!  It is just beautiful!  I am as green as the green in the Christmas tree quilt! lol


She also made this Christmas table runner to match!  Are you drooling too!!


And this patriotic table runner........



AND she embroidered this wrap that goes on a change of seasons pillow.......


AND this beautiful boy baby quilt...........


AND the lucky Mom who receives this darling pink one for a little girl.........



AND another baby boy quilt...............



My other friend, Cheryl, brought homade cookies, chips and pumpkin bread.  Ann also brought Italian beef and buns.  Am I the luckiest person or not to have such great friends!  Cheryl also makes the prettiest pillow cases and she worked on cutting another one of those out!



AND this is what I accomplished except for sewing the buttons on! (With some guidance!) lol  A couple of fall table runners.  They are called ten minute table runners but it took me a big share of the day to get them done!  They are fun to do and I want to make more now!  We all had a wonderful day together and I consider myself very blessed!

Let's try this again! Sorry I'm slow in responding, we took the entire family (twelve of us) out for dinner tonight, and I just got home.

What a nice time Nancy! I love quilting too, though now that I'm so focused on the garden I've done much less sewing. Things go in cycles for me. Aren't girlfriends the best thing in life?

Hi nutmeg gardener, Girl times are special! Seems like sewing gets pushed to the back of the "to do" list so it is good to schedule it once in awhile! Thanks for visiting! Nancy

Hi Nancy! Your veggies look so delish! Glad ya'll got some before the frost! Your precious grand-daughters are so sweet! I've never tasted dilly carrots, but I bet they are good! How wonderful to get together with such good friends! The table runners and quilts are so pretty! Thanks for sharing! Blessings from Bama!

Hi Bama Girl, I have started covering my lettuce and spinach at night. Put the cover down to the cold frame too! Don't want to take any chances of losing what little there is left! It was so fun to get together for a day with my friends! Sometimes life just gets too busy! Thanks for visiting! Nancy

Those quilts are wonderful, as it seems, are your friends! And your runners are very nicely done. Your are talented, Nancy. My hands and back can't take sewing, even on a machine.

Susan said...

I am so glad that you had a wonderful time with your friends. :D I hope that you are feeling all better. I'm still praying for you.

Hi langela, What we do without good friends! I am lucky. I am sorry you can't sew anymore. It seems like there is never enough time! Glad you visited! Come again! Nancy

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Susan, Thank you for your prayers. Not back to normal but have had a little more energy the past few days. Thankful for that! It was a fun day with my friends for sure! Glad you had time to visit. Come again! Nancy
