An Angel Weekend

Anne Ida, May Britt, Lise and myself met at Lise's this Saturday to enjoy each other's company and sewing of angel blocks for a two day retreat.

Lise had prepared such a lovely table for us when we arrived, with cold beverages, coffee, tea, fresh baked buns and strawberries.

We enjoyed the sun outdoors as long as it lasted - chatting, laughing and stitching.

In the afternoon we got a heavy thunderstorm and lost electricity, but that did not stop us one minute.
Candles and the daylight from the windows had to do and we still stitched.

We inspected the Lise's sewing room too :-)

In the evening we had a wonderful meal with oven baked chicken, rice and salad and as you see, wine :-)

I am a beginner at the angel blocks. These are my first 3.

May Britt has been working on these block for a while. She has all her blocks prepped.

These are Anne Ida's blocks. They look very cool in blue and green :-)

Lise's blocks so far. She is soon finished too.

It is so much fun to see how different our blocks are in the different colourways!

We'll meet again in less than 2 weeks now. I am very much looking forward to see you angel girls again!!

Stay tuned for updates :-)
