Very enjoyable day

Well today has been a day of sewing, and I have to confess some unsewing.....the half square triangles were a challenge for me but the block is finished...only a few points were damaged in the making of...hee hee!!
I am quite happy with this, even with a few points being out of whack......I had a lovely afternoon, a group of us went to Donna's place for an afternoon of stitching, conversation, tea/coffee and snacks...
there was an unusual vapour trail over Donna's house today....

one of Donna's friends, Jean, is making this stunning quilt...isn't it beautiful??

Marg was working on another needle turn appliqué..how cute is that?? She does a beautiful job...

here are the late stayers...hee hee,  no not really we just didn't get a photo earlier when the other two ladies were there!

a very generous lovely friend (Donna) gave me these goodies (late Xmas pressie)...things she found in Malaysia and that could not be left behind!! Love them, thank you Donna!

I managed to get 4 hexie flowers started today....need to sew the sides together now....very  happy with the batik colours...

and this morning I finished another stitchery...needs an iron, then it will get some trimming and sashing.....so it has been a very enjoyable day, some finishes, beginnings and wonderful company.
Happy sewing.

I love the mouse embroidery and hexies are always a joy, but that brown and white quilt of Jean's is stunning. I could study it for days.

Looks like a nice fun day of sewing and a get together, I'm hoping to find a group like this when I finally finish work....
Lots of hexies - did you make all of these ? Hexies are still on my "to do" for the first time is along with needle turn applique. The mouse stitchery is so cute too Sue.
