Once again, Sweet Peas

Our last meeting of the Sweet Pea ladies did not happen so it is four weeks since we had a get together.

Today we gathered at Andreena's and she has been busy making a large quilt block called Carpenters Star.

Lots of chatter and nice yummy food for morning tea.  Thank you, Andreena, for hosting the morning.

Margaret had some lovely items to share.

She made this larger than life teddy bear for one of her grandchildren.

There was a large purple polar fleece rabbit as well but unfortunately I did not get an image.

Margaret had also made a wool quilt.

This is one of the blocks from the quilt.

She did say the wool was very difficult to work with. Even so she had a pretty good result.

What about this little kitten?

She has captured the cat dilemma very well.

Rochelle and her husband recently bought a caravan (trailer) which they have completely renovated inside.

A retro quilt was what Rochelle thought might be suitable for life on the road.

This is just a sampling of the thirty six floral blocks she has made.

A lot of work has gone into making those retro flowers and they are looking so good.

Your photos, once again, show the creativity of the Sweet Peas. It must be delightful to see all these projects in person.

That bear is gorgeous...Im sure that will become a treasured heirloom.

And the retro flowers quilt is wonderful too.

I never cease to be amazed by the diversity of projects and styles you show after a Sweet Pea gathering.
