Back home......

Here I am once again back home...I had a lovely visit with the Gisborne Girls, stayed with Tania and caught up on all that has been happening, visited the LQS, I tried not to but what can you do???
I came out without doing too much bank account damage...Lol!!....I found some beautiful Cottage Garden threads to add to my collection and a pack to make a pincushion.....they are hexies...what could I do????
We had dinner (fish and chips) at Margs to celebrate her birthday, this is the beautiful table runner Tracee made for her, isn't it lovely???

Sadly you can't see the stitchery clearly, but this is the wonderful cushion Tania made for Marg, perfect for the sewing room...

..dinner is done, time for photos....

the birthday girl with her balloons...

Later the girls from Wednesday night group came up to Marg's...this is a baby quilt Marina made.....

another Marina creation she is busy binding,,,,,

It is a hard life for small dogs!!! Lol!! Resting on Tania's hexies!

busy fingers....

...and from the other direction....

Marg made this pretty little bird pincushion...isn't it cute??

The today on the way home I went to the Bellarine Quilters sewing day...here is a scrap quilt Linda has made...she does some amazing work...

and another...she had 3 blocks left over from another quilt, so made some extra and has another beautiful quilt...

.....rough weather on the way home...


I decided to cut lots of 5cm circles..in fabric and wadding...

and I made one of these.......nineteen more to go...sigh!! I am hoping they will turn into a Christmas decoration I spied over at this blog.....we will see!!
Some stitching has also been happening
...last night the wonderful Tracee had forgotten to bring something to do...she had come straight from work and is busy, busy...so she did some stitching for me..yay!! I love it when that happens as it has special meaning for me then! Thank you Tracee!!
Phew if you made it here reading thank you!!! This has been a bit of a long one!!
Happy sewing.
