A Vitamin Q weekend :-)

P1070243It is always so fun to have a true Vitamin Q weekend, like May Britt and I just had :-)
I had a lot of projects packed. I only had 1 small finish this weekend, but several projects got moved forward.P1070248We had the very best time making angels – I can never have to many angels!
This beauty is 8” tall.

P1070239May Britt was busy finishing several placemats, and machine quilting her Christmas stitchery.
We have a little challenge between us – 2 UFO or WISP (work in slow progress) finishes for October, November and December (6 finishes total).

Even if it is still a bit early for Christmas markets, the first ones have already started.

P1070245We visited Irene on Saturday afternoon. I hope she sold well through the weekend.

P1070244

We had dinner there – a traditional dish of Elghakk – minced meat of elk, mixed with onion and potatoes. Lingonberries and flat bread on the side.
We did not have to cook at home then, and we enjoyed the rest of Saturday sewing :-)

 

P1070247May Britt is working on several red projects, and here she is ready to throw a fraction of her red fabrics in the washing machine.
The funny thing is she has tried to convince me that her selection of red fabrics are small, for quite some time ……….. well………. not so much anymore ;-)

One quilting project, like one cookie, is never enough!

So many more beautiful projects there! I am currently doing that Rosie Quinlan redwork stitchery myself. You and May have a great time when you get together and have a very productive weekend I see.

LOL I think you rumbled May Britt's red situation. :-)

It is so good to finish projects especially with a good friend to sew along with. Lovely work. I have a Christmas Fayre to go to on the 24th November.

I really like the chair block! Is it part of a larger project, or is it a small quilt? Tell me more, please. I will miss seeing you in Shipshe this coming week. Judy
