Fun day and Block 1 done.

First block of my new quilt project is finished, its "An Earl Grey Moment" by "Faeries in My Garden" I'm doing this with Jenny so we are definately off to a good start.



Our Tuesday group was very small on Melbourne Cup day but that didn't stop us from enjoying ourselves, good friends, drinks and yummie food all adds up to a great day.... sorry about the quality of the piccie, not sure what happened there as our drinks were alcohol free as we all had to drive home.

 

           Lots of chocolate..... Laurel and I made short work of it though.

Your block looks beautiful. Your stitching is perfect as always, Helen. Glad you had a nice Cup day. I went to EagleFarm races with my boys and daughter-in-law. Had a great day. It was nice to dress up, been a while since I have attended a Melbourne Cup function.

HI I have dropped in from the SAL - but I have to say how beautiful your teapot is - that is an amazing quilt and well beyond my skill - and patience. One thousand congratulations to you to take it on - though I think I remember you also did the Needlewomans Cottage from Faeries.
