Annette was finishing off three wall hangings for her nephews. There was one dog, one cat and one horse, each personalized with a little fella's name. These are my most favorite things I have ever seen made with PB&J fabrics. I thought they looked super. Annette is nearly there - just tying off a few threads and getting that binding down. Stitch on, Annette!
Anneliese joined Annette and I to finish off her matchstick quilting wall hanging. I won't show you the front as I don't want to spill the beans before it's on her blog. I will say it's gorgeous, though! I'd love for her to make 5+ more and turn them into table mats. They'd be gorgeous!
Check out Anneliese's travelling goodies - a little metal pin box, a sewing roll (cute fabric!) and a kindle to keep her little ones occupied.
I brought along my little cross stitch. You can see some progress from my last post, but I will say it was slow going. I could not see well in the dim light, so I unpicked as much as I stitched. I was also more interested in what Anneliese and Annette were making so I wasn't paying attention to my own project.
Anneliese's two daughters spent a little time drawing and writing notes. Here's mine, clearly addressed to myself with a cover photo of my bone...
Inside was a fuzzy kitten (with a bow!) and an interpretation of my entire cross stitch panel. I did receive a second love note from Anneliese's younger daughter, but I think Anneliese is very careful to not mention their names and her name was so very carefully written in the center (surrounded by hearts). I will keep that one to myself.
We even did a quick cross stitch lesson, so I can't wait to see what they created by our next meeting! Ladies, it was wonderful to stitch with you. I can not wait until we meet up again! Thanks for such a great night out.
