I brought with me my ongoing cross stitch project, but didn't make huge progress.
I filled in a little background on the central "block" and started the blue squares on the third block. More chatting than sewing, I guess.
Anneliese brought with her the famous triple zip pouch out of which she pulled Liberty hexies, papers and variegated Aurifil to baste to her heart's delight. Really I think there were only two or three basted...we were too busy chatting and planning summer antics.

Irina came to Galway for her first meetup, which was brilliant! It was so nice to catch up with her in person and not (as usual) getting news through email. Out of her bag, she pulled sashiko coasters she is making as a method of practising hand quilting. She has a kit that comes with super cool pattern templates and a piece of chalk coated paper so that she can layer them on top of the linen and transfer the guidelines. On the back, she'll use Japanese linen. Such a cool, portable project.
