A stitch-a-long Day Out.




On Tuesday Kayly and I decided to go on an adventure and visit some other stitch-a-long members . I knew that Teresa and Helen visited Tereasa's shop on Tuesdays so we decided that that was the perfect time to visit. Kayly, Tereasa and I were even stitching our Gardener's Journal. As Helen and Teresa didn't know we were going to be there, we will forgive them for not bringing thier Gardener's Journal stitcheries this time but maybe we will visit again later and post some more progress photos.
We thought that you might all like to see us hard at work stitching.

While we were there we were able to see Teresa's beautiful Girl's Day Out Quilt - do go and check out the photos on her blog.

Is there anybody else out there getting together? Post a photo if you do!

Jennifer and I have gotten together once....but we didn't stitch. She showed me the book and I was hooked. When you meet at the shop do you come home with a purchase? I usually do!! The fabric and patterns are too tempting. Lee

How cool that you all got to get together! You should have a stitching day to work on your blocks - that would be great motivation!

How lucky you are...I have yet to meet a blogging friend in person...It would be so fun if all of the SAL girls could get together.
