Needle and ThREAD #10: Sewing with Angie

My sweet friend, Angela, came over yesterday to finish a project we started long, long ago.  While Angie hand-sewed the facing down to the ruffles on the peplum belt/waistband, I put in the zipper, sewed on the top band, and hemmed her skirt.  We had such a good time just sitting and talking while we sewed and though I don't have a good picture of the finished skirt, it turned out very nicely.

Angie also chose some African fabrics from my stash to coordinate with solid canvas colors for a reversible tote bag, but we didn't have time to finish that.  It's next up on the sewing machine!

What's up on the reading list:

More triathlon books - Triathlons for Women by Sally Edwards and Triathlon Revolution by Tom Schneider

More quilting books - The New Quilting by Machine from Creative Publishing International, Modern Log Cabin Quilting by Susan Beal, and The Quilt that Walked to Golden by Sandra Dallas

Some poetry - New Collected Poems by Wendell Berry and Quilting: Poems by Lucille Clifton

A couple of food books - Closing the Food Gap: Resetting the Table in the Land of Plenty by Mark Winne and An Edible History of Humanity by Tom Standage

And lastly, a novel - The Blue Castle by Lucy Maud Montgomery (glad to be reading some fiction with two dear friends).

Happy Friday!

Oh goodness...could your friend Angie be any more darling? I am in love with her hair. :)

The food books look very interesting, B. You'll have to let me know how they are.

So glad to be able to join in with you on anything at all since we are so far apart!
