The Tuesday Chat Quilting group

Gosh it is noisy in the shop on a Tuesday.  There is so much laughter going on it is heart-warming.  These ladies have been meeting at my shop for the past six to seven years we think.  When the shop changed we all wanted to continue to meet enjoy each other's company and have fun together.  Our numbers vary from 4 to 9 and we all make a great variety of quilts and other bits and bobs.

My photography is not very good today.  Left out the other side of the room!!

Lyn has been working on the gorgeous Christmas hanging for about 5 months.  She does the most exquisite handwork.

Lyn has sewn untold beads and sequins to this design.  Really lovely.
Five of us have decided to start on the Farmer's Wife quilt and will make 4 blocks a month to start with.  The template plastic has been pulled out and we are going to do this on the 3rd Tuesday of each and will share fabric.  Such small amounts are needed and we all have decent stashes to raid!!

Then I managed to load and get started on Sue's fabulous scrap quilt.  Decided to use Big Bertha while she is in residence....this machine does make small work of heavily pieced quilts.  More pics tomorrow.

The fire was so lovely tonight with heat pouring out at a great rate.  The boys thought it was such a wonderful spot to lie...

But then it got a bit too hot and we had to make a strategic

That's it for tonight.  A bit tired as Wednesday mornings I always go to Morning Prayer group at church - St Andrews CHB, so I'm off to bed.  It really is a lovely way to start your day though.  We are going down to Wellington this weekend and I am looking forward to that.

"Dear friends, since God so loved us, we should love one another also.  1 John 4:11"

Take care and talk again soon.
