Mirage from Sew 2 be happy arranged a ladies crafty morning yesterday at her place. I got to meet  Laila from Time for tea and Alia from Coffeebean’s Dailies.

These ladies are crafty they all brought projects that they were currently working on which all happened to  be quilts!  I on the other hand went with nothing lol i just didnt have the time to sew anything  and well i couldnt take a tissue box cover could i?

Oh my those quilts are beautiful,  the thought and details that goes into making one is no joke.

However, the satisfaction of actually completing it and giving it as a gift is precious.  What makes it so special is the fact that it was handmade (of course!) and the sewist had you (the one receiving the quilt) in mind while making it.  Have a look at this gorgeous quilt which was made by Mirage’s sister for her niece.

I took my camera with me but with all the talk, tea and laughs forgot to take pics so promise will do next time.

I took  Hadeel along with me to meet thier kids and she had a great time! I heard all about it on the way back home.

I really had a lovely morning and it was a pleasure meeting these lovely crafty mamas. Thank you ladies for being  such an inspiration and i cant wait for our next meet up.

Check out my new website Sew Chic & Unique as i will no longer be posting here after the 15 th of July

I joined Omanforum recently and i posted a topic on finding a sewing group in Muscat.
I was told that American Women’s Group and Women’s Guild have a sewing group but unfortunately they both are approx 30 mins drive away if i am lucky that is the timing depends on the traffic.

I was delighted when a member from Oman forum Shimmertje got me in touch with a couple of ladies who informed me that there is quilting group called Muscat Quilt Guild and they are in my area!

Muscat Quilt Guild might be part of Women’s Guild but i am not 100% sure. Whatever the case is i am glad that i have found them and i look forward to meeting these lovely ladies. Apparently they meet once a month and have fun sewing/quilting.
