Sewing -- nine to four.

The quilting group that I belong to had a sewing day today.

It was a bit slippery on the roads in the morning due to a light fall of snow over night, but everyone made it to a local church hall safe and sound.

Sewing and looking at all of the projects everyone was currently working on kept us all busy until lunch time.  A short walk took us to a restaurant for lunch and then back to the sewing machines again until 4:00.p.m.  It was a fun day.

I had been searching for one fabric so that I could start working on a wedding quilt, finally yesterday I found a blue fabric that worked well with the other fabrics that I had chosen.   This quilt is for my second grand daughter and her husband, they were married in June 2011, I know I am a few months  late, however, GML from our group, suggested that it could now be called a First Anniversary quilt.  This was the project I worked on today, and made some progress, the blocks are quite large with only a few pieces in each so it should work up fast.

A new baby will be joining the family in late April, and if the ultra sound photo's are correct I can see a pink quilt being started in my sewing room soon, and those knitting needles going a mile a minute.
