Fall Stitches

Our crazy quilting group, the Crazy Ladies, got together this past Saturday at my house.


It was great to see everyone and share a crisp Fall day.

When my friend Irene pulled out her fan blocks...the picture was too pretty to resist.


Wasn't it sweet of her to bring a project that matched the seasonal decor?

And, while I had the camera out, I just couldn't resist a few pictures of women stitching.


I love pictures of women stitching.


I also love pictures of their work...


*sigh*

Happy November everyone.

P.S. Jack ended up being Jason on Vacation. Unfortunately, you'll have to imagine Jason(Jack) wearing a fake hockey mask and carrying a cardboard machete while dressed in a tropical shirt, flip-flops and bathing suit and wearing a flower lei around his neck. Hey, even axe murderers need a vacation every now and then.

He had no time for pictures. How could he? Evidently, his social calendar at 14 is more important than catering to his mother's need to shoot him...I mean, photograph him...

I always enjoy your pictures, Susan, and with such beautiful subject matter, these could hardly fail to please the eye. Looks like you all had a lovely day.

Now, we'll have to have a word with Jack. Much as we love him, he has to get his priorities right and allowing you to take photographic evidence to delight us is vital :-)

Hope he had a great Halloween.

It is a beautiful crisp autumn day here and the colours this year are magnificent. But we have to enjoy today, the forecast for the rest of the week is wind and rain. I think the leaves will be down by next weekend :-(

Gosh .. I always love to look at your post there is always more and more beautiful crazy quilting , I can't get enough, so I am going to look at some older ones .
Wish I had a group gathering here too. Maybe I need to see if I can find a group of ladies that like to do emboridery work and not just quilting.

Wendy said...

Oh how i wish i lived near you!!! To come over and see the Crazy Ladies stitching IN PERSON would be so wonderful!
I would ooh and ahh, and sigh...

Oh, who am i kidding?! I'd be cussing, trying to do the lovely stitches they're all doing! But i'd STILL love to be there.

Oh, their stitchings are breath-taking. Sooo very beautiful! What fun to have a CQ stitching group- I too am envious...
