Today I had the pleasure of meeting with an established group of ladies who meet every Tuesday for stitching, fellowship and food.
We met at the lovely home of one of the members where she has some of her beautiful quilts on display.
She includes lots of handstitching in her quilts which is truly amazing.
I never learned to properly sew but have always loved quilts and am in awe of the work put into the making of them.
One of the ladies was tatting which she made look very easy (though it's definitely not).
And one of the members showed off her bird embroidery that took 3-1/2 months to complete.
The angle at which I took the photo came out way too bright so the picture does not do the piece justice.
It was a really enjoyable few hours of time well spent.
(And now I'm hoping some of their talent and creativity will rub off on me.)
