Sunday Stitchers

Yesterday we had our monthly get together and as usual it is a lovely day... It is always good to catch up with friends and see what everyone has been up to.. some of us have been jet setting off to amazing places, some have been experiencing sadness in their lives, while the rest of us are doing our usual daily activities.  With all the different personalities and stages of life we are experiencing, it has always been lovely to have something in common like 'craft' that brings us together..
At our meeting this week we had lots of 'show n tell'..
Here we have Alison with her Ruths Quilt stitcheries, Teresa with her Diva wall hanging and De with a pretty little 'wool' mini...
 Marilyn had quite a few items to show..
 Tatyana had made a beautiful bracelet, Norreen a gorgeous bag and Maria has been working on a blanket for a new family member..
 Inca had some pretty blocks to show us and Helen had been very busy and held up a wall hanging she had been working on too..
 Susan has also been busy - she showed us a thread holder with matching zippy pouch and a gorgeous quilt - I love the colours in this quilt..
 Marilyn, Norreen and myself were celebrating a birthday this month, so it was our turn to open our pressies..  Thank you girls, love all my goodies..
 Helen had been working on her string quilt during the day and Teresa is working on a bag pattern that she had bought from a show a little while ago..
 Alison had her Ruth's quilt fabric cut out and Cheryl had 'show n tell' via phone photo...lol
I have been working on my circle quilt lately - this one is going to be a gift for someone, it just needs to be quilted and bound now...


 I have also finished two table toppers..  I decided to hand quilt these two, something I found oddly enjoyable compared to machine quilting..

 

Some of the girls were working on some string quilts that our group are donating to charity this year.

That was all for my Sunday Stitchers catch up, but during April, I also made myself some cloth napkins to use instead of paper ones (I'm trying to be less wasteful for the environment)..

 I also made two cards - one is for my dad for his birthday and the other is going to be for someone else (no names)....
 Well hasn't April been productive and its not over yet.. I wonder what else I can accomplish this month...  catch you all later..
