The Tuesday Girl's

Our gathering today was at Norreen's place and we did manage to get a little bit of stitching done, but only a little bit..
We headed down to the local cafĂ© for morning tea..  yummm..
 Norreen has been working on her bag and brought it out to show us her progress..
Helen spent the day stitching a block from The Simple Life book... 
I did do a little stitching but I will get to that soon, first I want to talk about this book.
The Tuesday Girls have decided to do a stitch-a-long and the chosen quilt is from this book - Living The Dream, by Leanne Beasley.  It was printed several years ago but it seems there are quite a few people with it sitting on their shelves - and have not started the quilt.  The quilts is called Ruth's Quilt.
I thought it would be nice to add the personal touch to this quilt by adding a block aptly named - the Tuesday girls.  So after a little designing, I came up with this block - the four hearts representing the four Tuesday Girls..  I gave each of the girls one to add to their quilt if they wish to do so..
A couple of the guest stitch-a-longers are going to add a personal block or two of their own...but I'm sure there will be more of this later..
This is my 'little bit of stitching' for today..my first block for our stitch-a-long... 
 I cannot remember when - probable last year or something, but I never got around to finishing the Splendid Sampler quilt that I had started.  So every now and then I do a couple more blocks and then I feel I can ignore it for - oh I don't know - another year maybe...lol
Here are the last ones I have done..
I have no idea why it wont let me turn this photo so it will just have to stay this way..
 A couple more Splendid blocks...
That's all today..
Stay safe everyone..
