I’ve missed catching up with my patchwork groups for the past three months or more.
We meet twice a month and, although I rarely manage to go to a weekday meeting, I do try to go to the Saturday meetings, but it has just not been possible for the past few months … I’ve either been out of town, or working, …. and I’ve missed the company.
Over the years we have made quilts for each other, shared workshops, gone on shop hop road trips and had weekends away but just spending a day together relaxing and sharing ideas and stitching is so refreshing.
We do have our own private blog, where we can share photos of our stitching, or family events, in between meetings but there is nothing quite as good as sitting with a group of women over a cup of tea (or coffee in my case), enjoying a cake while stitching and talking.
So Saturday was a treat for me!
I got to catch up on the news in person, meet a new member to our group and generally relax with like minded company. Bliss!
Do you have a patchwork friendship group?
Have you, like us, set yourselves challenges or made share quilts and round robins?
I would love to hear about your experiences.
