The answer is stitch with friends. I had a great day on Saturday stitching and chatting with friends, Anne, Karen, Lis and Nicki. Lots of laughs and generally putting the world to rights. Karen was stitching a lovely huge sampler by Long Dog, Lis was stitching a very beautiful Moroccan Sampler by the very much missed Kay Monteclare, Anne was stitching a very beautiful reproduction Westtown quaker sampler (sorry Anne the name eludes me again) in a rich rich red. Nicki didnt stitch but was busy keeping up with her very lively son and daughter plus working her magic as a chiropractor to all of us. To top it all off, Anne made my all time favourite for lunch, Tuna Mornay, yummm.
What did I stitch do you ask? Well, I have to be honest not a thing, the stitching was in the basket and on my lap but the needle never got threaded, it was just fun watching others stitch and enjoy.
I do have a couple of finishes that were completed earlier in the week.
