Wednesday sewing with friends

Today was the day that I got to sew with three other lovely ladies that I really adore. Lorraine, Marilyn and Zita.

Lets see what everyone was up to
Zita is working on a Millamac design which will end up being a cushion cover.  Marilyn has made this cushion and I also have it as a kit to start on at some stage.
Marilyn is also working on a Millamac design.  These gorgeous chooks are standing on each other to check it there is any mail in the mail box.  PS.....we are the official Millamac fan club!!
Lorraine was sewing the binding onto this gorgeous shaggy quilt.  All done in black, white and red. It is just lovely.

While they were all sewing on these sweet projects, I was finishing off block 8a of Edwardian House (which you are probably all very bored with now!)
Today was extra special as we got to meet this little guy who is as yet known as no name Wilson.  A 6 week old maccaw. Sorry about my photo.....it is shocking as I was shaking a fair bit for these snaps.

Isn't he just beautiful.  He is being hand raised and if it wasn't for how much they cost, I might be tempted to want one too.

  1. No "Show & Tell" session is boring - its always great to see progress. Why doesn't No Name have a name??

  2. Those projects are all lovely. Adore the chook project and the stitchery is coming along nicely. Love the Macaw, they live forever don't they? I wonder what
    mischief that one will get up to.
    Cheers, Anita.

  3. Lovely projects everyone is working on. One very cute bird. Hugs.....

  4. Some very interesting projects being worked on by your friends. I remember seeing that chook project in a magazine I believe. Gorgeous Macaw!

  5. Not only are the macaws expensive, but I believe they have an extremely long life expectancy. I think the smaller breeds live 20 or so years, the larger ones up to 60. Trivia...
    Lovely projects. I like the stitchery on your block.

  6. Beautiful projects and a beautiful birdie!

  7. All the projects look lovely, I especially like your beautiful stitching! Cute bird!

  8. Thanks for sharing the creativity of your lovely 3 friends - what a great way to spend the day!

  9. Wilson is sooo cute! :-) Love the projects that you ladies are working on.

  10. Hi Cath :) These are all such lovely projects - your stitching on your Edwardian House is just beautiful. No name Wilson is so cute!
