Steelworks Picnic Day

Monday was Steelworks Picnic Day so The Girls came to play.  I made quiches for lunch, Sharon brought salad (and flowers) and Karen brought sweets.

Quiche Lorraine
Quiche with chorizo and loads of vegies
"Hot Cross" from Carrie Nelson's "Schnibbles Two" book, using a Bliss layer cake I'd bought from Bec, was my sewing for the day - the fabrics have been cut out for months and this quilt was a great choice for easy piecing while chatting etc.


I didn't take any more photos during the day - forgot.  Sharon was busy hand-stitching, Kerryn was sewing blocks for her raggy flannel quilt (her first quilt) and Karen made this bag - it looks great and she's started her Christmas present stash.

I kept sewing on Monday night and finished off the blocks.  Trimmed them up last night and put them on the design sheet - not 100% sure of the layout yet.  LOVE the Bliss fabrics and think this quilt will be lovely when it's finished.  Once the blocks are sewn together I'll add a small white inner border, a wide outer border in the aqua floral and red binding.  I'm giving it to Michael and Peta - I think Peta will love it.

We had a lovely day and look forward to another sewing day soon.

A girlfriend and I went to see "The Cup" last night - wonderful Aussie movie.
