Thursday morning.

Almost every Thursday morning I get together with friends.
Nice, huh?
They come over and bring their projects.
We work.
We talk.
Compare notes.
It's always an inspiring morning.

Today Jenn added a border to her quilt!
AND
we pinned it...ready for quilting!

I stitched a little on my baskets.



Ellen (the expert Knitter) clicked away on her new socks!


Jenn showed us her C-u-t-e Bib!!
She said it was easy...
but I don't know about that part!

Maybe for you knitters it is....??


We pondered this little knitted cap.
Why is it so big if the pattern says it's for an infant??


Cute, though.


Well...
Chloe kind of wanted to do something too.
Were we leaving her out?


Wouldn't want to do THAT!!


" Here we go Chloe.
A sewing project just for you."


Can she do it??


Yes she can!


She had some fun!!


Sewing begins at an early age around here!!


Hey!
I was even inspired by my knitting friends to
take up my crochet needle again.
I made these last Saturday during an all day conference.
So glad I could use the time doing something crafty!
My kitchen will LOVE them.
And so will I!!
I'm adding this to Amy's sew and tell.
Run and around blogland and get inspired!

  1. What a lovely thing to be able to get together with your friends who all like to craft. And, what lovely crafting. So, you are hand quilting the baskets?

  2. I love getting together with friends to craft - we always have so much fun! And I am very impressed with your baskets - they are lovely! My granddaughter is also one to get involved in the sewing - but she always wants to sit at my sewing machine and "sew" her fabric! Today, though, she hammered the fabric and told me she was making scarves....I'm not sure how that works but she was happy!!

  20. Your hand quilting looks so yummy: that's going to be a special quilt.

    I just knit some of those cotton bibs, and I'm on a dishcloth kick too. There must be something in the air...

    I hope you had a nice Mother's Day.
