Once again.............

 Once again it was so nice to gather with the ladies from our Sweet Pea group.

Seven of us met at Mary's house and we had a lovely time of sharing together.

Who would have thought that there could be so much show and tell from just seven of us.

Mary had been busy making quilts and I had the privilege of returning them to her after Linda had machine quilted them.

The caterpillar was a great hit with the ladies.

You can see better images of these quilts as well as Andreena's fish theme quilt at Linda's blog.

Rochelle also shared a couple of her projects.

The one on the left is a small wall hanging.  She had recently completed machine quilting it.  This quilt appears to have a ric rac trim inside the border.

Rochelle could not find the ric rac needed for the job so she carefully cut and machine stitched some fabric in place to make it look like ric rac braid - very well done.

The blocks on the right are from a block of the month project that she has been working on.

Moira's grand daughter put in a request for Nana to make a wall hanging featuring chickens.

This is a work in progress at this stage and looks very promising.

Moira is going to embroider wisteria flowers amongst the green leaves above the hens.

We look forward to seeing how this one comes along.

Debbie wanted to make a fabric picture featuring Lake Taupo and Margaret has been very generous in sharing her time, talents and fabric to help to bring this creation together.

The dog in the foreground belongs to Debbie's son.

Another project is already underway using the same techniques.

Back in September I talked about the birthday blocks we were making for Margaret.

They have been amazingly transformed.

The appliqued cats are to honour a ginger persian cat who was a very special member of their household.

My goodness, these projects are gorgeous - I love each of them for different reasons. Way to go, Sweet Peas!
