Happy Day

Today I have had a visit from some lovely quilting friends, we had a great lunch, lots of chatting and laughter, the kind of day that makes you think all is well with the world.
I missed first course but we had wonderful fruit salad and berries in jelly for lunch, followed by cheese and bikkkies and ginger cake...so much yummy food.

Tracee was working on her beautiful quilt, adding felt bits and pieces

Anne was making stars

Robyn was creating circles with beautiful Japanese fabric

Jo was making a Christmas table runner

Marina was making more clam shells for her clam shell quilt, somehow I missed what Annie was sewing!!

the compulsory group photo, we missed Elyte today, hope you are feeling better soon Elyte.

I dragged out my much neglected applique quilt and did two leaves!!!
As well as bringing lots of food the girls gave me a wonderful present...thank you City Girls, I had a wonderful day and it was so good to have a catch up with you. Thank you too Tracee for all your help  in the kitchen, lunch would not have happened otherwise!! 
I have made some wonderful friends through blogging , they really make my day.
Happy sewing.

It was a really great day thank you Sue (and Tracee) and where you live is just beautiful. We had to drag Annie kicking and screaming into the car to go home!! We City Girls love catching up with you Country Chicks, so much fun, so much chatting, so much laughter, so much yummy food and even a bit of sewing to make the day even better. See you all soon.
