Tuesday Stitching with the Girls

 Finally made it to stitching with the girls today.... Unfortunately for a nuisance of a headache all I did today was chat, eat and take photos...
Mary has been away from our weekly get togethers for many weeks now (way too long!!) as she has been very unwell. Today, it was a lovely surprise to have her come for the day. This is a photo I took of her today with her dear friends quilt. Her friend is unable to finish the quilt and Mary has put it together for her, had it quilted and sewn the binding on. Isn't it just beautiful... and so special that she got to finish it for her friend. What an amazing gift she has given!
 Another photo I took today is for my photo challenge... Todays challenge was "My Addiction".
Lucky I had my sewing kit there, even though it didn't get used....
My addiction.... Embroidery, making things, vintage and all things Paris! he he....covered it all!
Last photo is thanks to Tereasa's little stack of yo-yo's... She has been making them for the past couple of weeks for a yo-yo quilt. I just love the fabrics, and colours ... it's going to be beautiful.
So nice to catch up with everyone today!

Some days it's enough just to be with like minded crafters, even if you don't sew. Hope you feel better soon. Is that a little Roasalie Quinlan stitchery you're working on?

What a lovely quilt and a great gift indeed!
Lovely to see your stitchery too. I am half way through mine and am a little unmotivated. Will watch your progress it make kick start my enthusiasm.
Love those yo yo's.

Mary has a big heart to do such a wonderful thing for her friend - the quilt is amazing beyond words. I hope that some time spent with your stitching friends helps you feel better very quickly.

Hope your headache has gone Teresa. You have had a busy coupole of weeks so it was good for you to be able to spend time with friends and do nothing. Probably just what you needed. Hugs.....
