Stitching progress

Over these last couple of evenings I've been working on the stitcheries on the Waverley Bag I started this weekend, and I thought I'd show what I've done. I've now finished the three blocks that are all stitcheries, so next I will start on the appliqué (still some stitchery to do in the centre, but I'll appliqué the bucket first).

I'm still trying to process all the impressions from the weekend. It was so wonderful to meet these women and be able to be creative along side them! I think we all had a great time. I’ve stolen this picture from May Britt’s blog since I was really bad at taking photos outside class (sorry, MB, hope you forgive me!).

I have to share with all you bloggers out there how sweet these women are: The ladies asked me if I’d like to join them for pizza Saturday night, and of course I was happy to! What I didn’t know was that they was to surprise me and Aase on our upcoming birthdays by having the staff at the pizza place sing us the birthday song and bring us ice cream :o) And they brought me this wonderful piece of fabric as well!

I’m still in a bit of a state of shock! It was so sweet of them! Thank you, once again!

Hope you are having a wonderful day!
Sincerely, Anne Ida

Very happy birthday to you! What a marvelous present you had: a week-end with Leanne and other quilters. I am so envious. Thank you so much for sharing the pictures. At least it feels a bit as if we were there too.
Your bag progresses really nicely.
Take care.
