Sunday Stitchers and First Day

Today is a red letter day....both our little ladies started school! Cannot believe how grown up they both are. Apparently both had a great day.

Yesterday was our first meeting of Sunday Stitchers for 2018. If you follow some of the other Sunday Stitchers I am repeating it for you...sorry!
Very photo heavy as we were all very good stitchers and worked on our UFO challenges and consequently lots of lovely show and tell. and tell sweet Minnie quilt and UFO beautiful Sashiko.

Susans lovely quilts and a mini.

Gorgeous quilting details visible on the back of Susan's lovely quilt.
Noela....a lovely runner and wall hanging.

Incas beautiful Lucy Boston.....I feel guilty about mine...sssh!
Tatyana had a sweet wall hanging.
De...the cutest clamshell pouch...
Teresa and Noreen lovely candle mats and I think a pincushion?
Sandi had lovely zippy pouches and cute bags...
Marilyn escaped the paparazzi but had gorgeous appliqued flower blocks to show.
Helen was doing a balancing act with Miss Matty and candlemat!
Allison....beautiful pillow shams to match the beautiful wedding quilt she made.
Phew! And yours truly showing it pays to be voluptuous sometimes lol!
I had one Elf block in my UFO no.2 spot but finished it so quickly that I got them all done.....the UFO list had to be revised....
De drew our number for next month......
Which is Brinton Hall.....and which I just happened to take to work on yesterday!
I guess I just keep on going then lol!
It was a very nice way to spend the day and start the New Year.
If you are still with me....thank you!
LASTLY I just wanted to say that I have a lot of wonderful comments from folks who are non reply bloggers. I have decided to respond to those people directly under their comments. So if you don't get an email response from me to say thank you it will be there.
Well that is me DONE for this post!
