This weekend the “Seven Sistahs” celebrated our 10th year of quilting together. We had a lovely place on Wells Beach that suited our needs perfectly. Maine reached record high temperatures on Saturday, but we stayed nice and cool in our cottage by the sea.
I dumped a huge bag of scraps on the floor and watched the sharks circle and then swoop in for the kill. Kathy and Fotini just dove in.
Karen B. covered her body with her colorful choices.
I finished a lot of bindings and was able to baste this little piece and get a start on some of the applique.
The one thing we all noticed this year is that as we get older, we accomplish more eating, drinking, and chatting than sewing. But, with all the world’s problems now solved, we can get a jump on next year’s projects!
I passed through Wells on Saturday on the way to Kennebunkport and Kennebunk where Al and I celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary! What a beautiful day it was!ReplyDelete
Looks like such a fun time, Wendy. I got a chuckle over the scraps piled on the legs.ReplyDelete
