GROUP DAY SEPTEMBER - CATCHING UP ONE

Trying to catch up on all the things I have been unable to put on here since being offline. These are the photo's from my Groups day, if you remember, they had requested a project, I came up with one that will last possibly two to three months, which will take us neatly to the end of this year. Annette, very quickly ran up the centre for me so I had a sample to show them, here is Annette's sample she made - unpressed, no time to get the iron out, there will be a few more borders on this before they start to sandwich and quilt it...

Hmm, it was quite surprising how many placed the vase the 'other' way up...

Not that it matters really, nice one Irene...

Jean playing peep-bo, that's better I like to see who is behind the picture...

This is Annette's in negative format...

Very pretty, love the colours...

Aha Joyce is busy stitching away at the previous months block, she had a bit of trouble with it and brought it back to sort it out...



Precise placing going on here...

Very nice Sue, finished at last, perfect points too, well done..

Janice deciding which stitch to use for the applique...

Different placement going on here...

Michelle's pretty dotty flowers...

Perfect work from Linda as always, was good to see her back with us...

Dee, busy stitching away, lots of edges to go round, it looks lovely Dee...

Well done Suzanne, another block finished, soon have a Quilt...

Look now Di is playing Peep-bo...

Betty busy stitching away at her own thing...

Nice smile Sylvia, where is your block though?

YES...Well done Joyce, finished...

Hmm, I think that is ready for pressing now...


Lovely colours, these are being decided upon for the first border which is a 4 patch...

So there we have it, stage one of the first project
Let's see how they get on in October.

Is anyone else experiencing problems loading pictures onto Blogger, this has taken me ages to get right, it appears to be double spacing too. Something wrong here I am sure. I never had the little squares round my pictures before, I used to be able to move them where I wanted too, but now it plays up and deletes some I am trying to move, not funny Blogger, really not funny.
