Sewing Day

I have visited blog land almost every day to see what everyone is doing, however, I can't believe that has been almost a month since I last posted an entry.

During the past few weeks I have been working on the comfort quilt that my quilting guild partner and I are making for chemo patients at our local hospital. (Members of our guild were were partnered, and each couple is making a quilt.) Do not have any photo's of it yet, my partner is now putting on the binding and the label. Hope to take a photo of it this coming week to show you.

I have also been knitting some things for my Great grandson who is expected early March.

Today one of our guild members hosted a sewing day at her home, six of us had a very productive day working on our latest projects. I worked on a UFO - English Country Cottage. Those who were on the old blog would likely remember that I am using a counted cross stitch pattern and converting it to a quilt. Each cross stitch equals a finished one inch square. My plan is to have the top finished late next month. A lovely lunch, and conversation completed a really nice day.


  1. Sounds like a great day Patricia. I remember the cross stitch. Be sure to post the finished project. It was such a sweet cottage.

  2. Hi Patricia , it,s cottonreel , I have not had the pleasure of seeing the cross stitch quilt , I hope you post it when completed

  3. Hi Patricia. thank you for your visit. I have been admiring your quilts . All beautiful. So you have been in Holland. I never visited the keukenhof but we were planning to go this year.
