September Sewing Circle


After taking the busy summer months off it is a treat getting back to our monthly church sewing circle.
I'm not the only one who likes to sew bare footed!


Summer was still in the air!  Instead of a soup luncheon we asked everyone to bring a salad.



Hands were kept busy knotting this cheaters cloth comfort top.


We had four ladies busy at the sewing machines.


We are piecing a scrappy quilt called "Scrappy Majestic Mountains".  I brought the squares home and started putting some of the rows together.  This has really been a fun quilt to piece.
The one in the back ground is one of my projects here at home.  I am making it just using fabric from my scrap bin.

Another project that we do at sewing circle is make these warm stocking caps that are donate to GAIN Ministries.  These are some  that two men from our congregation made over the summer.


The girls at sewing are making and adding these cute flower pompoms on some of them.


Darlene does a great job at binding most of the comfort tops that are knotted.


Won't you consider coming and joining us next month?  There is something everyone can do.   We meet the first Wednesday of each month and would love to have you there.

Gosh I wish I lived there. I would so love to be there. Sewing with friends and sisters in Christ is a joy.

The Majestic Mountains quilt is so much fun to put together. I did two of them a couple years ago. Your sewing circle would be enjoyable to attend.

I sure would love to join you, Polly, if only it were not a 1000-mile drive. Maybe someday! :) Love your scrappy pinwheel quilt, and love seeing your pix of the ladies (and girls) all working together. It always makes me feel warm inside.

I would love to be part of such a wonderful group stitching and working together, but sadly I won't be able to join you as I live at the southern tip of Africa in Cape Town! Maybe one day I will be able to visit. All the best, Elizabeth
