Meeting friends and sewing......

What a terrific day we had with Vicki and Glenn last Friday when they came to Brisbane for a short break............... I guess we could call it a  "FIS "get together with a couple of hubbies thrown in.

from the left...Sandi, De, Greg, Glenn, Gavan, me and Vicki ohhhh my goodness how spookie is that all the men's names begin with "G" 


We met at a lovely cafe called "The Nook" and enjoyed yummie food..... this was my lunch


                                                             Vicki's meal.


I'm enjoying this social butterfly stuff.....

Well look at that..... a couple of heads showed up too..... you had to be there, trust me.


Now for some sewing ...... this little bag is so cute but a bit of a pain to make.... fiddly actually but I'm happy with the finish......its a Mariko Japan pattern called  "Mini Ami"



Love this Birdhouse pattern ...."My Heart Sings".... looks great in my sewing room.



Last but not least I have finished my Spider Web Quilt, its been a long time coming.... the colour isn't showing up very well, the plain fabric is a very very soft delicate pink.


                                                                    Label of course.




               Its so nice to get a few finishes to start the year off......

Lovely finishes Helen. Your spiderweb quilt is gorgeous, the close-up showed the colours quite well. Glad you had a great day with your friends & the boys too. I bought that Birdhouse pattern when I was in Tassie. Hugs......

Spiderweb is beautiful Helen - I'm seriously thinking about making another - the pile of scraps is starting to fall out of the drawer. The stitchery is so pretty as is the little bag. So glad you enjoyed your catchup with the girls (and the boys). The heads are wonderful.

All lovely stuff and if I had to describe what I thought your sewing room would look like - it would have said "soft & pretty" - obviously it is..

Congrats on your finish!
