Wonky Bits Sew and Tell...

We were 8 ladies strong at Wonky Bits today. We even had a past member pop in for a very short visit... It was nice to have seen her again... I looked to see if I had a photo of her one claim to quilting, but was not successful. I think that was during pre-digital camera times for me... She made a lovely Red Hat Ladies Sampler quilt. A queen sized, all pieced and quilted by hand... It was lovely...
It was great seeing you again D! 8-)

This is the finished result of Kn's bag from the X-Bag workshop we had a while back. Looks great K! 8-)

As well, here is Lp's finished bag... Very Spring/Summery! A happy bag! 8-)
Lp was binding her donation Fall Table Topper...
Looking good! 8-)
The gals are doing the prep work for an Envelop Bag workshop we are doing in September. I had made one a while back, you can see it here.
Pg brought this one she made around 20 years ago to show us. I like her's much better. Not as bulky and stiff as mine, as they did not use batting in them at her workshop... This one is great! The flaps drape much nicer, and it has some sort of snap closure across the full center opening... Something that you find few and far between these days apparently. Anyway, in the 20 years that Pg has had her lovely bag she has never used it, thus she passed it on to me! What a gift! Thanks P! Love it! I will use it! 8-)

Here is the rest of the rows of Pg's (posted yesterday) class project (Criss Cross 2) from yesterday... We were all puzzling over why it wasn't working out, and finally found the 2 sections that got switched around in the process... Funny how these things seem to be more noticeable in photo, than on the floor... You have to be careful when using directional focus fabrics with this pattern too... Love it Pg!!! 8-)
And a better photo of Du's quilt top than in yesterday's post...
We had a wonderful day, but missed the gals that were not able to join us... Hopefully they can all make it next time...

This is a center piece from my parent's 50th anniversary. Each family member took one home...
Happy Stitchings!

PS: Seems the siggie things on my blog has been creating some problems for the last couple days. If you get any messages while viewing my blog, could you please inform me? I am trying to fix the problem...

the only message I got while reading was subliminal - get back to sewing, get back in your room, stop looking and start doing.... Over and over!! If you can get that to stop, I would appreciate it!!

Hi Myra

That bag is absolutely gorgeous. Love the colours, how kind of her to give you such a lovely pressie.

I've been getting a weird message about your blog whenever I tried to access it. I couldn't get your email to let you know.

Today I got into your blog and got your email. I'll send you a jpeg of the message I kept getting.
