Friday night sewing results and a sewing day

 Last night I finally got the binding attached  to my Scrappy trip around the world quilt, this has been sitting there waiting for some attention for quite some time.

 I also prepared this cute little stitching  pin cushion, then of course just had to stitch some of it.
 Today I went to the George Town Friendship day, it was such a good day, what can be better than sitting with a lovely group of ladies, doing your sewing and chatting about the one thing we all have in common.
 Roseanne and Sue were busy stitching,
Desserts were just scrumptious,

I didn't get alot of stitching done, I got half of the binding hand stitched down on my quilt. I was too busy catching up with friends old and new.
Thank you Katharine and Erica for your company, I had a great day.

Great to be binding the scrappy... it is lovely all quilted up.... and fun to be with other friends too though I agree.. less stitching seems to get done (even though every one works so hard!!!)
