The Challenge

The Tuesday before half-term already! After snow on Saturday evening we were hoping the roads would be clear for Alison to make the journey from Hampshire so that we would all be together - and they were.

My husband had offered to make soup with the leftover chicken stock so I felt obliged to bake! I had seen a chocolate frosted tray bake at The pink whisk and decided to use the Tuesday girls as guinea pigs; it went down well!

The girls had all brought projects to work on but I was not at all organised and instead kept the tea cups filled. There are lots of ufo's which are being finished so it's feeling a productive year.

Alison was sewing the binding on her Tiny Turning Twenty, started in 2009 at a class at Needle and Thread.

Janet was sewing in the ends on another Christmas wallhanging. Her house will be very festive later this year. I have made some progress with the sashing on my Christmas BOM.

Amanda was pleased to sit and relax after housing a houseful of young adults and ponder which project to do next! Caroline was providing a taxi service in-between cups of tea and lunch but also managed to make some progress on her hidden stars quilt.

Last week we made some plans for a TuesdayGirls Challenge and after some fantastic service can reveal that we will each make a 12" quilt square from a pattern by Lori Smith. We all purchased a set of her patterns  and over the next three months will select a pattern from our set to complete by May 2012 - well, that's the plan!

Wish us luck :-)
