Yesterday (Sunday) I hosted the monthly get together of our stitchery group. The weather was warm and nice, so we spent the day on the patio. A couple of weeks ago, I realized I needed to replace our mesh patio chairs before summer arrived, and somehow the hunt to replace our old, worn out chairs turned into the purchase of a new patio set. Well, to the honest, our old table had a glass top, and every time Hubby pushed up off the table to stand up, I envisioned him breaking through that glass, so I'd wanted to replace the old table for a long, long time too. In any event, we finally found a set that suits our needs, and it was delivered on Friday, just in time to be put to good use on Sunday.
There are usually six of us who get together, but this time, two of our group couldn't make it. Gran is in Canada, spending time with her mom, and another lady in our group had an out-of-town family gathering to attend. The remaining four of us enjoyed one another's company, and as usual, we spent the day talking, eating, and stitching.
My projects for the day were binding two recent quilts. Julie-Julia told me she didn't realize the mini basket quilt was so small, so I took a photo of the finished quilt with a rotary cutter on top for size reference.
I finished the watermelon tablerunner too.
Originally, I was hoping to finish the tablerunner and use it on the patio table for our gathering, but there's never enough time for everything, is there? When I started cutting fabric for my runner, I cut enough fabric to put together kits for my stitchery friends too, and the fabric in each kit is just slightly different. I'm looking forward to seeing the runners my friends make.
If you looked for my blog this morning and didn't find it, that's because I had computer issues last night and couldn't post. The computer was slow as mud and kept wanting to do security updates but not doing anything; after those issues were resolved, every time I tried to access my blog, I got an error message, so around midnight, I just gave up and went to bed.
I wish I could spend another day on the patio with friends, but now it's time to go to work so I can pay for the new patio furniture. Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
