Sit and Sew at the Patchwork Apple

Friday afternoon saw me at the Patchwork Apple for sit and sew. I sat and sewed my Marg Low red club hexies. Aren't they looking great? My little hexie quilt has morphed into a table runner which I am making for one of my sewing tables. I am loving it and can't wait to finish it and get it on the table!

My view to the front of the shop from my sit and sew chair. I have been going to the Patchwork Apple for the last 16 years and it is one of my favourite places in Adelaide. Being a Patchwork Apple customer has been a lot of fun! The photo below is Jean getting started on her redwork. Jean and I were the first ones there on Friday afternoon. We are keen! I spent a happy four hours stitching and had a lovely drive home. The drive from Woodside to Hahndorf is just beautiful. The day was grey and rainy and there were autumnal trees all the way along. The freeway was pretty too with a light fog making everything look magical! A great day!

I really must get to the PA some day. (Kicking myself since I was in Hahndorf this afternoon - should have dragged Mr. P there on the way home!)

I do like your view to the front of the shop, I think if it was me sitting there, I would be spending most of my time drooling over the fabrics and planning what I could buy rather than doing much sewing.

It’s nice to have a quiltshop to go to where you feel at home! It looks lovely and so do your hexagons!

Hi Kris,
The hexagon tablerunner looks wonderful. I can imagine how much fun the sit and sew would be, though I'd be tempted to do a whole lot of shopping.
