Tea, Rain and Planning

Alison was the first to arrive this morning, from Hampshire.  We were soon indulging our first cup of tea of the day together with banana and chocolate chip muffins which Alison had kindly made, and chocolate and hazelnut cookies. 

Amanda arrived and we had more tea and when Chris arrived again more tea!! Caroline is still teaching this week, but this is the last one before the summer holidays.

We did very little sewing this morning, we spent most of the time catching up on news and things we had been doing.  All of us are doing the Farmers' Wife blocks and we hope to do them next week.

After a salad lunch of chicken and mackerel with a summer fruit dessert, we carried on as much as we did this morning.  We planned a couple of sewing days for the autumn/winter.

Alison did manage a little sewing, stitching together diamonds into stars.

We had afternoon tea with the muffins and cookies from this morning.

I had a 'show and tell' I had finished the quilt top of the  paper pieced Christmas trees that I was doing a couple of weeks ago. 

As Chris and Amanda planned to leave we had a heavy downpour after a few minutes they made a dash for their cars, Alison waited for the rain to ease off before she left.

Another Tuesday over, a relaxing few hours with friends, looking forward to the next one.
