Another Month Nearly Over!

Only one more day left in February, but it was much warmer today than it had been in the last few weeks, but a bit dull.

Caroline was the first to arrive and before the kettle had boiled, Chris arrived.  Amanda was travelling back from Somerset and would hopefully be with us for lunch.  Alison had a scrapbooking workshop planned for today, so would not be with us.

With our tea, we had a choice of muffin, banana, pecan and sultana and double chocolate and pecan, both based on recipes from the Susan Reimer book.

After our tea, muffins and a chat we started sewing, Caroline was continuing to sew the rows together on her Hidden Star quilt.

Chris was sewing her hexagons together using a range of fabrics from Kansas Troubles called Vine Creek.

I was also sewing rows together on a quilt for the honorary Tuesday girl, Stephanie, using a layer cake from Basic Grey called Blush and the pattern is made using the Twister Ruler from CS Designs.

We had a late lunch (by which time Amanda had arrived) of Omelette Savoyarde, based on a recipe from Delia Smith's Complete Cookery Course book, with salad and Mediterranean bread from Sainsbury's followed by a 'Be Good to Yourself' chocolate mousse, also from Sainsbury's.

Amanda bought us lovely gifts from Cornwall, where she had spent last week.  No details or photos as there would be no surprise for Alison next week!

Chris was the first to leave as she had to check up on her puppy.  Amanda, Caroline and I continued to sew for another hour or so,  Amanda was trying to complete her hexagon quilt, for the Guildford Quilters show in April.

We are looking forward to meeting next week.
