The lovely Sue

Sylvie and Lynn - an industrious pair! 

When someone said they didn't have a needle Caroline produced the above, 
needles for all, whatever size and so neatly catagorized too!

My re-start on Quaker Friendship Round Robin

Yesterday my stitch group (aka 'Stitch-n-Bitch') had a days 'stitch-in' at Caroline's house. We all arrived around 10am armed with our projects, Ottlites etc and, maybe more importantly, a dish towards lunch!

After an initial cup of coffee to get us started we all worked extremely hard and yes, we were stitching more than bitching! Caroline, Sue and Lynn were busy with their pre-class work for the CA Wells' class they are going to later in the year and Sylvie brought along her beautiful Maryse Dupont project. I worked firstly on a Christmas ornament, which I cannot show as the recipient reads my blog, and I then did a re-start on my Quaker Friendship Round Robin as it doesn't look as though the original piece is going to turn up. I am using a piece of 35ct lambswool linen with a silk floss of a deep green/black variagation. The sixth member of our group, June, came over for a short while but unfortunately she couldn't stay.

Lunch was delicious - coronation chicken, spinach and pesto pasta, green salad, waldorf salad, savoury rice and French bread and for dessert lemon creme brulee! Oh boy were we stuffed after that lot and it took quite an effort to get back to stitching as I think we could all have managed a siesta!

We had a great day and my only complaint is that it went far too quickly. I would like to thank Caroline for hostessing this wonderful event. 

Thanks for visiting
Take care
