The final wrap....

wow the weekend just goes too fast...........Chookshed party all done for another year........
Miss Jules could not find her binding so she finished this one she was working on........
I was thinking of hand sewing but as the lounge was full and this quilt needed to be pieced I got the top together and the first border........its looking pretty........
I was working on some leaders and enders and got all the 4 patches together on the left..........it was just a random pile of fabric in a box from I am not sure where............and I am still deciding what to make of them yet............how to finish it.........maybe what is there is 2/3rds of the blocks...........
Ali worked on this braided quilt.......yes its crooked but I was in a hurry sticking them back up on the wall and she hasn't finished the two left rows hence they are longer in the photo too........its from one of the Jelly Roll quilt books.......she has 4 more rows to make...........
2/3rds must be the go as Lea has that much together of her quilt also..........
Up close where she had started to applique the pictures on...........
Kate was cutting heaps of hot water bottle covers and wheat packs..........OMG you could not have enough of these at present it it freezing the cold front at present is very strong........very windy and showery.........lots of snow about futher south...........we never get snow.........
Suze worked on these 3 wraps adding some applique.....
they are all a lovely dark blue but the light is a bit funny in these photos.........

Annette did some applique..........she has heaps of blocks to applique to back ground..........
she also did some spinning and I missed taking a photo........
Morning tea one day...........Kates fresh strawberry jam was a treat with the scones and cream........
Miss Myrtle Mae Muggins was looked after so well..........
Yesterday I left her in a cage for the day and she was frozen last night when I got home.........poor little treasure was bright as a button after some warming and a tummy full of milk.........
Sunset with a jet passing over...........it was sooooo pretty..........so calm....
Of course you need champagne and nibbles to enjoy while watching the sunset...........
we were all rugged up..........it was a pretty cool weekend but sunny........
And then just like that the weekend ended.....such a great group of girls to spend the weekend with........fills the soul.....7 is the max......filled the Chookshed and the beds......
If you sewed along at home let me know what you got up tooooo......
Stay warm Aussies.........even those in the warmer parts are feeling a chill..........
off to battle the road to work........
Catch you later.......

  1. Such a lot achieved and the sharing with friends, can't do much better than that. Thanks for the report. Thought there was to be 4 here sewing, but turned into Pat and I, and I was so unmotivated, I just watched her and chatted. Well, Max has finished his row, so better go and move the quilt on for the next, have a good day and stay warm.
