Did I ever show you this? It was a piece that my friend, Deb (Cat Tails) and I did some years ago. It was such fun with all the threads and different stitches. I'd forgotten all about it down here in FL, but found it cleaning out my husband's bedside armoire drawers...one of my storage places. The finisher had fun, didn't she!!?
I have been wanting to introduce all of you to my dear friend, Elaine. She's my friend in my neighborhood who has been through the lung cancer surgery and chemo this past few months and is recovering so beautifully. Elaine, Darlene and I are called "the girls" around our poolside group because we're always going out to dinner together every single week (they go several times a week!). On Tuesdays we love to go to Outback Steakhouse because of the hot fudge sundaes!! ...and the steaks, too, but not the veggies..:] ...that's Darlene's standing choice. And, we go to other places that Elaine and I choose on other nights.Elaine and I decided to get together to stitch on our "Strip Club" strippy quilt for the day. Why am I always pictured ironing!! LOL We bought the same strip grouping for the class, so it's been fun. Next week we'll hope to get more done on this, and less eating. She made a delicious gourmet steak salad for lunch w/ garlic bread...and we raided her bowl of chocolates for dessert. We grumbled about the quilt strips not being even, and we discussed the girls in the neighborhood (what else!?), and we discussed books and broken bobbins. And, finally decided we both needed an afternoons nap from so much work!!
Here are a couple of the completed blocks above. Sweet and shabby! Don't look too closely...there may be steak stains! :o
I'm keeping up in the Neighborhood! Here's the start of my block in Leslie Saunder's for our RR. Isn't her piece darling as is? Anyway, I chose "June Morning" and the house there. This is the first time I've been brave enough to be the center block, but I thought I would just take the plunge....
Hope it's going to be okay...:f
Good evening to all you stitching Queens, you Wonderful Women of silks and sparkling threads, you Princesses of silver and golden scissors!
