Happy day

Hasn't it been a beautiful day today....the wind is a little cold but when you are sheltered it is amazing! Got lots of washing done today, even managed to get the dreaded tissue in the wash too!! Ah well these things happen. I had a visit from Mary who I sit and sew with at St Leonards and Bellarine, and we sat in the sun and had a cuppa and put the world to rights!! Mary had not long gone when  Shez arrived in the driveway! It was wonderful to see her, we haven't had a catch up for a while.
Shez gave me a beautiful present...
love the wrapping!

a beautiful suitcase Shez has made with goodies inside!  Thank you Shez, I love it!! I will have to get another photo of the outside of the case..

The Supervisor decided he had a new friend, one who ate biscuits, so if he just hung around and looked starving and neglected,
but watched Shez's every movement


and looked meaningfully at the biscuit tin.....

he would get a reward!! And yes it worked!!!
Someone is a soft touch!!! :-)
I worked out my problem with the Aussie Hero quilt, I had trimmed it crookedly and it was fatter in the middle than at the ends, so I trimmed it away this morning, sewed on the binding and while chatting to Shez started the hand sewing
Have some more to go but it is coming along nicely!! Hope to get it finished tonight. Then it can go in the mail tomorrow. Yay!!!

And here is my new case, think I will pack it with clamshells for a special sewing day tomorrow.
Happy sewing.
