First Quilt Bee at my new home

Last night our quilt bee got together in my new home for the first time. Finally I have enough light and no more stuff on the dining room table and was ready to receive the ladies. We did some sewing, quilting and had a look at my sewing room. 
For me this group is very important, because I am new in town. It gives me the feeling of being part of something special, sharing the passion for fabric and quilting.
I was so excited that I forgot to take pictures!! Here are some pictures from the day after......

Here some pictures of the show and tell in my sewing room.

Here some pictures of the dining room where we had a very productive and entertaining quilt bee.
We even might have found ourselves a name.....

  1. Good to know that you have got a new quilt group! Reading about it brought back memories of when we started our group in Shanghai. What fun we had and what great memories we've made.
    BTW, I'm intrigued by your mystery quilt; can't wait to see how it all turns out.

  2. Glad the ladies visited your sewing room as well! It is a good start in this new chapter of your life! I like all your projects! Cheers!!!
