A Little Show and Tell

Yesterday I had a lovely day stitching with my friends at Denise's home. Gaye bought lovely homegrown lemons to share...we are spoiled.
My friend Lorel has been making a supreme effort this year to finish some of her UFO's some of which have been decent size quilts I might add. So far she has crossed 13 off her list. She bought her latest finish to show us.
Beautiful models..Lorel on the left, Denise on the right. Apart from the dark pink and the floral border every thing else came from Lorel's stash. I think it is really lovely.
Lorel has also been working on my "Jolly Holly Gathering" and started quilting her version yesterday.
It always amazes me how a different colour way and fabric choice makes the same design completely different. I was working on my hexies so nothing to show. I do however have another sneaky of some Secret Santa business...

Now for something completely different. My youngest 3 1/2 year old Grandson has been trying his hand at a bit of gardening in some containers...
And how exciting to have your very first strawberry that you have grown....
Too cute!
Enjoy your day.

  1. Lovely show and tell, and a very cute reindeer peeking out. Your GS is a good little gardener, I have never done very well with strawberries.

  5. Your grandie reminds me of one of my little guys who used to come and visit and always take me for a walk to the strawberry patch to pick and eat.(even green). Nothing like freshly picked produce. Lovely quilt finish of your friend, and lovely sneak peek.
    Hugs

  7. It is so great to get together with friends and share what you have all been sewing. They always offer great encouragement.
    I can't imagine getting 13 UFO quilts done in a year.
    Lovely to see your little gardener enjoying himself. That's wonderful.

  15. Lorel is a complete champion. I love that latest finish. I still have a WIP from three years ago lurking round waiting to be finished.

    What a fantastic idea to set up a mini garden for a little person! I may have to do that with Little P !
