Today Mavie, Darlene, and Tasha came over to sew, eat and have fun. I moved my sewing table from my studio down to the living room so we could stay on one floor and all of us would have room to work.
Tasha took control of the camera and started with taking a photo of me sewing. I'm sewing the binding on a baby quilt we made a few weeks ago. It's now ready to have the back hand sewn. I also worked on blocks for DS #3 and GF's quilts. I have all of the two patches done and about 40 of the blocks completed.
Darlene gets the GOLD star for completing the most projects. She completed three tops using Happy Blocks. Here's #1 - the blocks are ballerina slippers.
I made triple chocolate cupcakes for our afternoon snack. These cupcakes have cocoa, semi-sweet chocolate chips and white chocolate chips.
When they were done baking we topped them with melted white chocolate and sprinkles. Tasha had the first one.
We went to Nana Sue's Quilt Shop for one last visit. They are closing next week. All of the fabric on bolts was $3.99, if you bought at least one yard. I saw this wild laptop fabric and bought three coordinating prints to go with it. I'm thinking it would make a cool laptop bag for someone. The stack on the right are one yard cuts of Kona cottons. I may try using them as different backgrounds for stitcheries.
Between Tasha and I we bought 8 yards of flannel. After washing and drying them there was a loss of about an inch on each yard. I trimmed up the pieces and will buy blanket binding to make quick receiving blankets for the new baby. Two of the pieces had an extra quarter yard to them and we will use the extra quarter yard to make bibs. The four prints on the left are Sesame Street prints. The four prints on the right are baby prints.All in all, it was a fantastic day. I love spending time sewing and eating chocolate with friends!
