Unbirthday birthday party..2013...and some eye candy!

There's more partying than sewing going on here..
 These are my Sisterhood of Crafty Thimbles embroidery group of girls..
we have been together about 10+ years now.
Every year instead of having our birthdays spread out  throughout the year ... we celebrate our birthdays all on the same day. A fun day of laughs, chatter, food and of course a few bubbles!
From the left...Margaret, Jeannie, Sandra who was our lovely host for the day, Janet, Melanie and dear Pam.
we exchange presents and just have sewing that day!
we have been through births of new grand babies, weddings,  bereavement...sad times and happy times.
                            ...unfortunately one girl couldn't make it...thinking of you Golda!
                                                            Here's to next year girls...♥
From my Tuesday quilting group...are these two quilts ..
This quilt belongs to Sue. Well her husbands, as Sue made it for him. this quilt was displayed in our recent quilt show..
Aussies would know that it's of Ned Kelly... our famous Aussie bushranger in can read more about him here..
and a fun, colourful quilt by Desa...very similar to the one I posted a few posts back by Anne #2.
also reversible, but with a square in a square block quilt on the back / front..
As for me, I'm still hand-quilting and working on my Jane Austen coverlet....very slow going!
Have a great day...♥
