Sew Day with the Nuts

Today I hosted Sew Day with the Nuts, which means I set a colorful table. Here it is, ready for breakfast casserole, fruit salad, banana bread and pumpkin bread. 

Then we had a hefty show and tell, with Nancy showing us a striking quilt top of overlapping squares (detail above) and a Christmas pillow top that she just finished embroidering (below). 

Linda J. showed us this VERY colorful bag she made that opens to store sewing necessities or whatever else you want. Speaking of bags, another show and tell was a gorgeous red, black and white one with zippered storage leaves inside made by Linda P. I was so awestruck by it that I forgot to take pictures.

Break for lunch -- turkey and cranberry sandwiches and more fruit.

Back to sewing, I worked on my embroidered and beaded fractured circles (above) and Nancy did some red work embroidery on another Christmas piece (below).

Carolynn used gold thread to quilt a fall table runner. Another productive day for the Nuts!

Have a colorful day
