Merville House sewing group...
It is lovely to belong to a sewing group, to share ideas and be wowed at what others are creating. We eat lovely buns, have a laugh and sometimes Martha sings.
Everyone makes wonderful things..
Ella's applique she has created using an image from a greeting card. This is about A4 size.
Rosie's table runner.
Brenda's (mum's) bits of pretty applique which form part of a cushion design.
Esme's postcard which she whipped up in no time.
Gail's gorgeous cushion.. actually a pin cushion... but too beautiful just to stick pins into.
And this is a very special bag which my mum has made. ( she's in the background).
It's special because she has given it to me.
And I love it.
It fits perfectly in my bicycle basket so when I go cycling to the shops (doesn't happen very often here but it does when we are camping in France) I will be tres chic n'est pas?
We had the most lovely tiny little cutie pie of a bird in the garden yesterday.
A little Goldcrest. Along with the firecrest, this is the UK's smallest bird.
This is the first time I have spotted it in the garden although I did see one in the park a few weeks ago.
The garden is full of birds at the moment. I think they might be eyeing up potential partners or having a good flirt before breeding season.
So a little birdie interlude followed by some more patchwork pics...
I am working on 3 things at once.
my Flora piece
a quilt for my friend Jayne who is getting married in April.
and a quilt for Beth.
