A Day of Friendship

I spent another stellar day with my stitchery friends on Saturday--it was our monthly get together. I feel so lucky to have found such a congenial group of friends. Four of us are starting the Bunny Hill Autumn House BOM; two of us are fairly experienced appliquers and two of us are newer to the technique. Here's my first block:


If you're familiar with the pattern, you might have noticed I changed mine a little by putting the pumpkin and vine on the right of the house instead of the left and adding a squirrel on the left. In the original, the word "AUTUMN" is embroidered down the right side, but I didn't want to include that in mine.

As usual, we spent the day eating, stitching, and chatting. I can't think of many better ways to spend a Saturday.

Stitching with great friends is the best. I have 4 wonderful girlfriends that I call my sisters of the heart and we get together as often as possible, have lunch each month and retreat together. It's the greatest!!!

I have had this pattern for a long time and have said I am going to make it one of these days, well all this talk about it, I started it yesterday, I've already made two blocks. I am doing mine with fusible and machine applique. I am using everything from stash and it's fun to see what I can find from my 4 huge scrap bins.
