|Ceri and Nikki seemed to have dodged my camera fairly effectively!|
The weather was abysmal on Saturday morning which was perfect as we were not tempted to go outside at all. Breakfast over we all sewed, and sewed, and sewed. And talked a lot of course. Drank copious cups of tea as well. Most of sewed until 11pm that night. Seriously, so easily done when you are in like minded company.
Lots got made/completed/worked on. A lot!
We also unveiled these gorgeous quilts Brit Bee have made for Terri's future grandchildren. It has been a group effort to help Terri achieve some of her goals.
I also made these two star blocks, and then started the embroidered prayer on one of them, as per Terri's request. These will be in two quilts made with Terri's original Brit Bee blocks, and will be for her daughters. There are just four more blocks to be completed to bring the total to 50 and then the quilts can be made.
And here is a sampling of some of the other projects worked on, big and small. The projects were so varied, but the one thing they had in common was how gorgeous they all were. There was a general air of excitement whenever someone got a project to their weekend goal - finished, quilt top or whatever.
I would show you what I was working on, but there are demands being made for dinner here so I will tell you about that tomorrow.
I want to go back - sewing solo isn't as much fun!ReplyDelete
Im just sitting here imagining how utterly fantastic it must have been to spend a whole weekend just sewing to your heart's content in a group of other people who felt exactly the same. Talk about bliss.ReplyDelete
Love that you gals are doing these quilts for Terri's future grandchildren. Such a lovely idea !

Fabulous eye candy there Susan.....must have been a lovely weekend.ReplyDelete
Absolutely wonderful. I am impressed that you got any sewing done with so many lovely people to talk to. xReplyDelete
It looked fab and it was nice to know you were all sewing away while we were having our mini Devon version!ReplyDelete
Sounds so lovely! How exciting that no one gives you the crazy eye for wanting to sew all day or expects you to interrupt your genius for dinner :)ReplyDelete
What a fab post :) I laughed out loud at Sarah's comment...poor Ange ;) It's so lovely that you're all helping Terri achieve her goals xxxReplyDelete
Sounds wonderful (quite jealous). Has Ange seen that photo? You're going to be in big trouble :-) xxReplyDelete
Poor Ange, that's not very nice to post that pic!ReplyDelete

Looks like a brilliant venue and of course, brilliant company.ReplyDelete
I want to come with you all next year - is that ok? You always look like you have so much fun!ReplyDelete
There will be repercussions!!!!!ReplyDelete
What a fabulous way to spend a weekend!ReplyDelete
Brit Bee is seriously the best bee in the world. Your productivity and love shared between all of you is contagious and so genuine.ReplyDelete
Envy, envy ;) (Seriously, this is the time I wish I was a Brit). It must have been so great!ReplyDelete
Looks like I avoided that camera well too, thank God! Next year people are only getting photos of my head...ReplyDelete
I think you're in trouble with Ange...best make a huge cake (and brownies) for the next time you see her!ReplyDelete
Reading this made me feel quite emotional - it is certainly true that in times of trouble, you can rely on your quilty friends for support and just general being-there-nessReplyDelete
