A finish

When I went to the quilting retreat friday I picked up my friend Jacqueline to ride to Elst (Ut). The weather was great friday, the rest of the weekend was more rainy. When we came there, there were already a few ladies, but we were very early so not so many ladies arrived already. Jacqueline and I set us at a table and Mary, Simone and Margeeth joined us. I started doing the binding on Nature's Trail, but well didn't go very hard. It wasn't finished till saturdayevening and I didn't have to do more than a yard of the binding. But I have been talking to some ladies and just didn't feel like doing a lot. I went to bed late, but also was up early.
On saturdaymorning at breakfast we got out potholders (yes it is not a tablerunner, but a potholder for both hands. For me it doesn't work, so it will be a couchcaddy or something like that. I love the kitty one I received a lot I have to say, just don't know yet from who I received it. Than I decided it was really time to do something and I started cutting the 2 charmpacks for this shnibbles pattern "McGuffey" and when I finished the cutting (I didn't bring my sewing machine) I went back to the binding and got the quilt finished.
Sunday with breakfast we got another little present, but as it was not my thing I gave it to a friend who I knows loves chickens very much. Yesterday I was early in the evening again at home and after a long night I am feeling great again and so today I worked on the cut blocks and they are all finished. Only thing left to do is put on the inner border and the outer border. Again it is done with Strawberry lemonade fabrics.

't Was leuk om elkaar eens weer te zien. Lachen, naaien, kletsen en een lekker wijntje leveren ons weer de nodige vitamientjes.
