Wonderful Wednesday - November Sew/Craft Friend-zy

Welcome to another edition of Wonderful Wednesday!!  This week, I'm here to report on November's Sew/Craft Friend-zy.  

People came and went at various times, but...

Here are the highlights...

Tiffany was presented with her REAL 50th Birthday gift:

I modeled how to wear it as a shawl:

Carol worked on creating some gifts:

Lisa planned to start out the morning with an ornament project: 

Tiffany demonstrated use of the cutting machine:

Tiffany and I took a selfie with her new shawl-turned-scarf, so Lisa decided to photo-bomb the picture:

Denise came with ANOTHER new kit:

The Cuba bags are nearly done.  Tiffany finished the embroidery:

Denise is ready to start laying out blocks and bagging them up:

A couple of the crafters were working on making ornaments:

Kristen and her tablemates worked on scrapbooking:

There was also a production line for making Art Bowls:

Crafters, old...

... And young alike, worked on decorating the bowls:

Another crafter was responsible for shaping the bowls.  Over bowls.  Then the waiting begins:

Electronic stencil maker:

This is the sign above the coffee bar:

Someone forgot to pick up their stamped Halloween shirt:

Lisa is making progress:

Her next project will be these curling iron holders:

BEAUTIFUL, Denise!!  1 down, 19 to go:

With photos taken, I was ready to follow my sock's advise:

You KNEW that I wasn't REALLY done with photos, didn't you?!

Tiffany busied herself making circles:

The knitter in me HAD to have a picture of Denise's Wolkig Cowl that she started with yarn she bought at SAFF last week:

Her knitting style intrigued me:

Just LOOK at that super soft baby alpaca yarn and that gorgeous wooden yarn bowl:

The m&m station was set up behind my machine:

Carol completed a flat iron holder:

MORE circles for Tiffany's newest applique project:

Lisa prepares binding...

... Using Tiffany's binding maker:

I've sewn the first seam on the last batch of blocks:

I pressed them with my new Steamfast Iron:

Carol completed her last two Flat Iron Holders:

Melinda showed up with a faux wolf pelt:

She's making pillows for one of her offspring:

Britt is working on completing the top of It's a Blooming Jungle:

Here she is, fitting the final pieces of this puzzle together:

Remind me never to sew with fake fur, please!!

It looks like Denise is getting close to having her blocks packaged:

Woo!!  Hoo!!  Block number 20 is in the bag:

Britt's B9P is a completed top:

Super soft shirt brand:

Lisa is making another Iron Caddy:

MORE circles for Tiffany's applique project:

Britt auditioned border sizes...

While I got artsy with my photography:

Busted!!!  As I was getting the artsy shot, Britt captured me:

All of my 9-Patches are pressed:

Lisa is cutting binding, Britt is cutting borders, and Denise is starting the cutting for a new project:

Here is the stack of my completed blocks:

This is our next project, as several of us have the pattern:

The artist is on to another project:

I need to look for this book in my quilt library at home:

Lisa finished the Iron Caddy that she was working on:

I moved on to assembling a portion of my B9P quilt:

Britt's first Blooming 9-Patch is complete, including an added border:

Carol is working on the layout for her son's quilt:

This is my favorite block:

Here are the FOUR Flat Iron Holders that Lisa made today:

Almost ALL of the circles are prepared:

My last round of 9-Patches have been added to the row ends:

Tiffany can begin to work on the remaining applique blocks:

This is the border that will be added later:

Thank you to St. Andrews UMC in Raleigh for hosting this event.

Until next time...
Quilt til you wilt!!!


  1. I'm going to look for that Shakespeare pattern! Maybe we can have a QAL ...

  2. Wow, what a busy and creative group. Looks like lots of fun.

  3. Wow, so much to comment on! I love the shawl/scarf you made for Tiffany! Happy birthday to her! Denise's kit looks pretty interesting. I'd like to see more of that. Is a Cuba bag a tote bag? I've never heard it called that. That faux wolf pelt 😍 Love you gals' B9Ps! Everyone was SO productive! I was getting dizzy scrolling back and forth!?!

  4. Wow! That looks like a fun group. I especially love the M&M area.. that would be dangerous! I have both of those Judy Martin books.... =) I have yet to make a shakespeare's in the park quilt.. but it is on the bucket list.

  5. So glad you continued with more photos because I was really enjoy your group with all their fun projects. I should get my Shakespeare in the Park out and quilt it while watching you make yours. The B9P quilts are gorgeous. Congrats to all. Love your projects. ;^)

  6. What a fun group this seems to be! Lots of smiles and creativity and beautiful projects :)

  7. What a fun group. It looks like you all got a lot done. I love the Blooming Nine Patches.
