Eating at Sew Day

Linda J. served us a hootenanny for breakfast at Sew Day today! A hootenanny is a big pancake baked in the oven, and it tasted absolutely delicious. Served with turkey bacon and a fruit salad, it was a great way to get started. The breakfast table, below, was colorful, as usual.

After breakfast, we all sat around the dining room table doing hand stitching. Four of us were doing wool appliqué and Linda was doing regular turn-under-the-edges appliqué with cotton. I didn't get good pictures, which is why I'm focusing on the food and the garden.

Carolynn, Linda P., Linda J., and Nancy at lunch.
Lunch was on the patio, celebrating the return of the sun and warm temperatures after a long, grey winter and spring. Everything was blooming and looking beautiful.

Okay, to make this post a little sewing related, here's a chair and foot stool that Linda covered after taking a class at a local fabric store.

And here are some very small buttons that Nancy bought over the weekend at Button, Button in Vancouver, B.C.

 Have a colorful day

Lovely! And I'm so glad the weather has turned nice for you... we're heading into the mid to high 70's here after having a small snow flurry over the weekend! ;-)

WOW! You are one lucky lady to be included in this great group! From the breakfast (we all that a 'fancy pancake' - my sons favorite!) to lunch to sewing with friends. What more could you ask for....once a week, maybe! HA
