A Stitch in Time


I've just returned from my Stitching Day, held at a church in Our Town. Ahhhh what a lovely way to end a busy school term ~ to just sit and stitch all day long. I was placed at a table with two ladies from my Quilt Class so it was lovely to catch up with them. Amazingly I was also placed right next to my Aunt!!!! I had no idea she was going to be there. The Quilt Shop owner knows us both and had no idea we were related! So we spent a lovely day catching up on family news between all the other bits of chatter between the ladies at our table. I've looked at my accomplishment for an entire day of stitching and decided it's a bit pathetic, volume wise. My excuse? I make tiny stitches so there are more than if I made large stitches. Nevertheless I will take it out with me tonight and continue on.

I'm already looking forward to 'Quilt til You Wilt' in a few weeks time.

That is a sweet stitchery! I have seen your tiny stitches, and am amazed by them!! I tend to make larger stitches and try to get more done :) Yours are just lovely.
Have a great break from school!

My stitchery is slowly but surely coming along since Saturday. It's like having moments of bliss amongst the rest of life...a little reminder of a lovely day.
