Some of my favorite people came over today to spend the day talking, eating, and stitching.
Four of the six of us were working on block 2 of the Autumn House block of the month. Because I was the hostess, I didn't get very much done, so I'm not ready to show you mine just yet--although that's part of it in the photo above.
I've mentioned before that my house is small and it's always hard to figure out where six women can sit and work on their sewing projects. This time Hubby was out of town for the weekend, so I had no qualms about moving much of the living room furniture out to the garage and setting up two tables for us to work on.
And because I moved the kitchen table to the living room, I was able to move the sofa table into the kitchen, and it made for a great buffet table.
And, really, we ate all day. Breakfast (chocolate croissants, OJ, and strawberries), snacks (fruit, cheese and crackers, salami, and a warm beef and cheese dip for tortilla chips), lunch (vegetable soup, rolls, and salad), and dessert (chocolate peppermint cake).
We always exchange little gifts and goodies and I found the perfect gift for them this year. Something I started off this month and will continue each month at our get togethers through the year. Here's my little wagon filled with fun--
I came across this free BOM pattern last month--it's the Adventures of Harrington and Hannah. Last week I made up the first block . . . .
. . . and put together kits for my friends from my wool stash. Each month I'll kit up that month's wools and backgrounds.
Yep, it was a really fun day and now I'm tired and ready to head to bed. Thanks for stopping by to visit!
