My Turn Again!!

Another warm & sunny day but a little too windy to be outside!
Having friends with like minded tastes, hobbies & ideas, I always look forward to Tuesdays with much anticipation.
Janet was the first to arrive & we tucked into our tea & peach & poppyseed muffins  immediately so that we could actually get some sewing done! I was thinking whole heartedly about healthy eating & growing waistlines, so used as recipe from "Red  Velvet & Chocolate Heartache" by Harry Eastwood.
Caroline must have heard the kettle & joined us for the second cup.
The three of us attended a Lone Star class at Needle & thread in Horsell last Saturday.  We were all keen to see any progression & discuss ideas.

Caroline got straight to work!
Chris joined us for a healthy lunch of chicken & bacon salad followed by home-made raspberry mousse.

We all continued to finish our stars - Janet had already added the background & had almost finished sewing the parts together.

          I was working on a second star, having used a jelly roll, which makes a total of four stars.  It was decided that I will wait until I have done all four before I decide on my background.

                  Caroline was deciding which should be the
                   centre colour of her star. She finally decided
                    on pink with a pale green background.

Janet also brought along her small diamonds for a table runner & was finishing sewing them together.


We had a lovely afternoon chatting & sewing together.  Alison was unable to make it as she is busy with builders at the moment. Can't wait to see the results!
UNTIL NEXT TIME.............
