Girls Sewing Day

Today Conni, me, Cathie and Beth all got together at my house for a long awaited day of sewing, chit-chat, laughter and good food. We’re all at different stages of our quilting life which made it really fun to share ideas and tips, and work on our projects!

I decided to move things around and convert our great room into a sewing room for the day (and luckily I’m married to a very tolerant man who did not seem to mind one bit).

I opened up our dining room table and put the extra leaves in it so that we could all sit around one space and sew. I also wheeled my cutting table out into the room and opened it way up. The ironing board fit perfectly up against the island.

I pushed the couch and coffee table over by the computer and pulled out all my quilt magazines and books … but we were so busy sewing, we didn’t spend any time browsing!

Beth cutting fabric for her marvelous snap purse:

Conni stitching away on her first quilt …

Which she got completely pieced today!!

And Cathie with a little steam heat to help get those tiny four patches to lay flat:

And what is a party without some party favors? Three mug rugs to match personalities:

Would you like to see those a little more up close?

I worked on another bag – this one will be donated for a charity auction…and I’ll post more about that when I get it done.

Today was a fantastic day with friends…and I hope we’ll be able to do this again SOON!!!

    Miss Wendy, was a great day we all had. Thanks for all the work you did arranging our “sewing studio”. The tip you gave us about setting the seams really has made lining up seams so much easier resulting in my quilt looking better and me being more relaxed. I love, love, love my mug rug. YOU ARE THE BOMB!!!

  1. What fun!! And those mug rugs are adorable. Wish I lived closer… and knew how to thread a needle. 😉
