Stitching with friends is the best way to spend time, isn't it? That is how I spent my Saturday last weekend. Quilty Friend and I meet once a month alternating locations, her house or mine. Saturday we met at her house and look what she gave me! A treasure box of goodies that included a lot of homespun pieces, a red work hummingbird kit some blank recipe cards, a wonderful vintage red velvet turtle pincushion and three different sets of vintage cocktail napkins. You will see what I use the napkins for in a later post.
Aren't friends wonderful?
I spent the time working on Gail Pan's A Christmas Wish BOM blocks. And by doing all that stitching, I found out that my new glasses (6 weeks old) do not work for closeup stitching! O no! I had to put a pair of those magnifier cheapie glasses on in front of my normal bifocals just to see the stitches. Time to go back and complain, I guess, as this is just not right.
