This morning "Crafty Time Out" met at my house (good excuse for posher biscuits) and although there were only a few of us we had a lovely time, sitting stitching, chatting and having a nice cup of tea (and biscuits).
This afternoon I headed to Sibsey to meet with my friend Tina. We are starting a quilting group in the village and needed to discuss our plans for the day. It's very exciting, I hope lots of people come along and can be involved right from the beginning with the way the group is going to run. The first meeting is on 20th September and we're having a trader (oooh, fabric buying), a raffle and a gentle show and tell. We'll also be chatting, sewing, planning and we'll need to decide on a name for our group. If you're local and want more details, send me an email please.
Tina was telling me about "Wonderfil" thread which is now sold by the Quilters' Guild. It has received some very good reports and favourable comparisons with my beloved Aurifil apparently. I'm going to give some a try and I'll get back to you - mainly as it will be easier to get hold of than Aurifil and buying it will benefit the QGBI. Have any of you lovely people used this thread yet? What do you think?
Apart from all that lovely sewing-related stuff it's been a dull and miserable day, weather-wise, here in Lincolnshire so it's time for winter food. I've got a slow cooker full of savoury mince and I'm making Yorkshire pudding to have with it, plus French beans from the garden which are still going strong. Sounds warming eh? When we've eaten I'll be back with a needle in my hand working on the little blocks for the bag I'm making - Southern Belle from Monkey Buttons. Life's pretty good really and tomorrow I'm having a day with DD :) so that's be a good day too, we're going to have a browse in John Lewis among other things.
