Fun with Frienzies

Yesterday was a day filled with Frienzies. First, Sharon came over for a day of sewing, something we have become rather lax about. She brought her Elizabeth project, and while she's not yet finished, she is definitely plugging right away at it. I mentioned in a previous post that I would give details of the fabrics she is using for her version.

Above is the process of selecting which neutral grouping to use. The fabrics are mostly Luna Notte by 3Sisters/Moda. We did add in some Aviary pinks, too. Anyway, the winner of the neutral debate is that grouping in the upper right corner - the lightest of the options. It will definitely be fun seeing how it all comes together.

At the end of the day,the entire group of Frienzies wound up over at Susan's for our monthly get-together and to celebrate Hettie's birthday.

Susan set up her kitchen table for a Valentine's craft. Sherrie and Susan are busy here painting canning jars, the first step in the craft.

While the paint dried, we enjoyed the appetizers. Look at the variety! Lyn and Sherrie brought those. Pam brought the makings for Italian sodas. Delish!

The table was festive with bright Fiesta dishes. Our menu consisted of a variety of soups with salad.

Hettie, our birthday girl, shows off her craft jar; Sharon's is there in the foreground. We decorated our jars with ribbons and stickers, and then filled them with Valentine's candy and chocolates.

My contribution was birthday-girl requested - lemon meringue pie. I made a practice one before making the real deal. I can only show you the practice pie; I never even thought to take a pic of last night's pie. The practice pie looks pretty rough, but it tasted good. *wink*

It was a fun day with friends. While Sharon worked on her Elizabeth, I pulled out my February UFO - Lorraine - and did some work on the borders. Come on back tomorrow to see my progress.

Happy Quilting, Friends!
