Stitchers Group

Today is Wednesday .... quilting day with friends who meet at St. Margaret Mary Parish Hall. We meet every week and sometimes go on shop hops, lunches and wherever our heart desires.

We were a few short today but Nancy, Becky, Margee and I had a good morning chatting and working on our projects.

Becky worked on her Halloween Quilt, Nancy was able to tie one quilt and most of another, Margee worked on her cross stitch for DD who is soon to have a baby boy and I continued with the buttonhole stitch on my Santa/Rudolph in the photo booth.

Nancy brought in a wonderful Nativity wall hanging she made 15yrs ago when pregnant with her twin boys ..... she wanted to prove she does complete things. LOL


Here's Nancy and Becky with the notebooks that I made as a New Year's gift for everyone.

We missed our RingLeader, Marilyn, today ... hope you feel better soon. See you guys next week.

Last week Sharon brought in her beautiful Thimbleberries project.




And here's a peek at Margee's scrappy baby quilt for her new grandson who will soon to make his appearance.
Kate asked me for photos of my project, Santa and Rudolph in the Photo Booth. The pattern is a from Country Quilts by Cheryl Wall. The wool kit was purchased from Woolen Willow by DH. Here's 2 of the blocks that are sort of done plus a photo of the pattern (I didn't see it on Country Quilts website).


Just a note ..... anyone in the Parkersburg WV, Marietta OH, Belpre OH and surrounding areas are more than welcome to join us every Wednesday, 9:30AM at St. Margaret Mary Parish Hall.

Looks like you had a nice day! The notebook covers are a great idea for gifts.
