Sew Day and the Seahawks

Today was Sew Day at my house, and we ended up stitching at the kitchen counter while watching the Seahawks playoff game (They lost, unfortunately.)

Linda, Nancy and me.
Only three of the five of us could make it, so that meant more food for us! We started with a breakfast casserole, raspberry almond coffeecake and fruit.

Then we hand stitched at the dining room table, with Linda and me doing appliqué and Nancy tracing some appliqué patterns before turning to embroidery. Lately we seem to have mostly switched to hand work instead of lugging our machines to each other's houses.

One of my wool flowers.

Linda's butterfly applique, from a Facebook group pattern.

"Wild Blooms and Colorful Creatures" patterns.
Lunch was Weight Watchers chili (pretty similar to other chili recipes except that it also had zucchini), grapes and carrots, and more coffee cake while we watched the game.

Nancy's embroidery.
Nancy gave me these cute napkins. 
My Sew Day friends are chocolate chips!
(And we thought we were nuts.) 

 Have a colorful day

Fun! And if you make chocolate chip cookies, you have nuts too!

Your food always looks and sounds wonderful! Projects are great! And hand work is so much easier to haul!!! Sorry about your teams loss...we are used to it with the Lions...HA
