Fun day out and other bits.

 
What a great day I had on Friday last week, I asked Sandi to come with me to collect my "Earl Grey Moment" quilt from the quilter so of course we made a day of it. We had to travel over an hour to the quilters so we needed to have coffee and cake on the way but we forgot to take a piccie .... it was yummie.
 
On the way home we decided to drop into "Faeries in My Garden" so naturally I had to show my quilt to Lesley (on the right) ... Tracy (on the left) ... and little old me in the middle.
 
 

                           

Lesley and I deep in conversation about embroidery of course, it is great to talk with someone that has the same passion for this craft, she is so lovely to chat with.... Sandi thought I would be there chatting all day.

 
 Thank You Lesley and Tracy for your very nice compliments on my quilt.
 
Can you believe that I only bought 2 fat1/4's from Faeries, I was so amazed at my self..... pat on the back for me showing such restraint. 
 
 
Then we were off to have lunch at the cafe just up the road from the craft shop.
 

This is a great shot of Sandi...... giggling away and boy oh boy did we do a lot of that.


On the way home we called in to see our mate Tereasa, she is working in a craft shop and it was so good to catch up with her..... I think we brightened her day although we were a bit noisy for the shop.


I did buy this fabric for the BOM in the Homespun magazine "Its Time for Christmas" by Bronwyn Hayes, can't resist Christmas things.... Sandi and I are doing this one together for this year...... did I really say this year ?    Oh my goodness.... silly girl I am.


Thank You Sandi for joining me for the day, I had the best time..... my face was aching from all the laughing, it did turn into silliness on the way home.
 
This photo is proof that I have been sewing but sadly its secret stuff so you will just have to wait to see the finished project....I also put the binding on my quilt.
 
 
 
Well I think that's enough chatter from me today I'm now off to continue hand sewing  the binding on my quilt.
