A few days sewing

Just spent a few days with my beautiful friend Chookyblue and her family. We sewed and talked and sewed and talked some more, had some bubbles and just enjoyed a few days together. 

We rehoused newly hatched guinea fowls or "keets"  and watched fairy girl raise one from near dead to a chirpy chic.  

Fairy girl and I did some sewing together and spent time in the Chook shed finishing her scrappy quilt. Chooky worked on  cutting out lots for her SAL and lots of EPP.  




Some sewing on my SAL 

Then I started on this quilt I brought home from my trip to USA last April. I bought this from Broardway Quilts in the Sonoma Valley.( California) It was a beautiful shop. 

Some experimenting with a few positioning decisions. I always find it amazing how just turning a block or swapping around a piece on a block can make a huge difference.  Thanks Chooky for you help with this. The middle bottom block was the one in question. 

The quilt is from Laundry Basket Quilts its called  Remember. A combination of batik and traditional. 





Some baby guinea fowls..... so cute ...... just a few hours old but already so capable. These two will get special treatment....
