Stitching with Friends

Or should that be chatting and laughing as there's always plenty of that too, and internet technical help, and online shopping for qsnaps, whenever I get together with my lovely stitching friends :)

We spent the past Saturday afternoon catching up with one another as we'd missed July's stitching date for various reasons.

I decided to start my Mum's 2015 Christmas ornament.



Here's dear Kath and Clare, please excuse the no wallpaper look behind them!


Kath is stitching a Travelling Pattern, passed onto her by Clare, which has been around the world and has been stitched over 40 times I think.


Clare was very patiently sewing on the ribbon and beads to her Shepherd's Bush Fold pincushion, just so sweet.


Lovely Janet was making great progress on her stitchery by Leanne's House


She finished this piece and was very happy as its been a work - in - progress!


My little friend Miss Poppy was our honorary member for the afternoon, spending her time smooching between Kath and Clare!


Already looking forward to our September get together and I think we might be planning a little road trip to check out some fabric shops, can't wait!

Ditto to what Dani has said. I spent most of yesterday at a stitching group. Love all the projects you girls are working on. Love to see the progress of Kath's project, loving it already.

What a lovely get together. I have stitched that Travelling Pattern, right back at the beginning of its journey.
Love the Shepherds Bush pillow too.
