Is it March already?

A dull chilly day - perfect for friends to visit and sew. Alison was first to arrive, followed by Amanda and then Chris a little later; Caroline made it just in time for lunch.

We had tea and apple & sultana muffins - and then more tea!

Lunch was homemade vegetable soup with warm ciabatta rolls, followed by cheesecake and even more tea!!

Alison was hand quilting her scrap quilt with Baptist's Fans:

Caroline was cutting mauve batik fabric the blocks she did on a recent jellyroll workshop at our local quilt shop, Needle and Thread (Needle and Thread), Amanda was hand appliqueing a block for the Guildford Charity Quilt (Guildford Quilters):

and Chris was making the most of her fabric by cutting scraps from a Rouenneries charm pack to make a Schnibbles pattern called Tuffets (using the leftovers from another Schnibbles pattern) (Miss Rosies Quilt Company):

Janet did show and tell with one of her old sewing machines

and kept the tea flowing...
