Donna at http://chookyblue.blogspot.com.au/ held a virtual sewing party to celebrate her blog's 2nd birthday. She had real people enjoying a weekend of sewing, good food and "bubbles" at her house; whereas most of those who joined in sewed alone......I find I get more done that way, anyway.
I only managed a little sewing this afternoon, after spending most of the day tidying up the mess the tree fall made, fixing trellis back again, and giving all the plants that had either a shock or a squashing a little tlc to get them back on track.
I worked on this quilt I'm making for my ex mother-in-law.....although I haven't been married to her son for many years, she and I are still good friends, and I visit her regularly. It's her 90th birthday in 3 weeks and the quilt is to be her gift. It's a pattern by Bronwyn Hayes called The Seed Packet quilt.
I already had the stitcheries done, so now I'm adding the borders, and finished 3 and a half today.
These 4 are left to do, plus a heart block.
I love this about the internet, that there were dozens of women on the weekend all stitching or knitting, doing their own thing, in "company" with each other. We have the opportunity to visit each other's blogs and see what everyone's doing, give encouragement and admire the works underway, all while enjoying a beverage of choice and some treats.....well, it was a party! I don't know if I would've bothered doing any sewing today, choosing to relax with a book instead, if I hadn't "signed up" to party along with Donna.
Happy Bloggy Birthday, Donna
