This blog is a place to talk about the bits and pieces of my life and loves. The title came from my Scottish auntie who one day said to me "Oh Sadie forgot her bits and pieces" , which was her lunch ;)
I have not forgotten that Bits and Pieces are part of life. So here is the place where I share my bits and pieces and maybe sometimes the things I have learned in a long life.
And here is what looks to me like a fairly simple one to make, just squares and more squares.
Today was my sewing day with the group of ladies at the church. It was a lovely get together and so many quilters came and filled all the chairs. It was so nice to see that many friends all in one room.
They were working on many pieces . Betty Lu was at the binding stage of her beautiful original quilt. We all suggested that she enter it in the next Houston show.
Here it is.
That is Betty Lu on the right. Beautiful flowers , fabulous windows and gorgeous trees.
Liz was doing hand embroidery on a table cloth, She does beautiful embroidery.
Wendy is working an a gorgeous bird quilt.
A lot of lovely applique was being done. That is all we can do there as we do not take any sewing machines to the church.
I was so tired, it made no real sense for me to go today but I hate to miss a Tuesday. Pat picked me up once again and we went to Oakridge for a coffee before we carried on.
Still it was fun despite the weariness. I did not get very much done, my hands rested LOL. As did my brain and energy level.Not enough sleep, I woke up at 4:00 and did not really get back to sleep well.
However when I got back home I had good nap and that made me feel a lot better.
I did manage to do a bit of applique on one of my pieces though.
Ray made pea soup for dinner, it was good. He is a great cook. I ate some at lunch time and also had it for dinner. Now I am a bit green haha.
Maple leaf quilt in a four patch style is always a very attractive quilt with many fall colours.
A bit of grammar....
The English language does not follow any real rules. LOL.
