Ladies who Lunch

Today the City Girls ventured out from the city and came for a visit, also Tracee and Marg came down from Gisborne. The  latter came via a 70% off sale at a craft store, where I heard they had a very enjoyable time!
We had lunch out on the back deck,, but then moved inside as the afternoon warmed up, then the air con went on as the day got even warmer! We had a great time, good lunch and lots of chatting and laughter. A little sewing was even done!!
I tried to set the camera up on a pot plant to take a photo but I think this is a fail!!

Anne and Robyn getting the fresh breeze out the front

Trying to get photos of sewing projects...under Elytes hand is a beautiful star

Tracee working on her quilt centre

Marg making tiny flowers

Anne joining her flowers together...all hand sewing here

a photo pause, love the time delay so we can all get in the photo!! They are  such a wonderful group of friends. I enjoy their company very much.

Marina showed us her beautiful quilt top....her farewell quilt from her previous job, Marina has changed a few blocks to make the quilt hers, you can see a bit about the quilt here.

Love the centre block, the pattern is Gossip in the Garden by Anni Downs. 

and a few more circles have been completed...I have run out of prepared circles so it is back to tracing and cutting for me.
Off to sit on the couch and have a cuppa time.
Happy sewing.

Thank you so much for such a wonderful day.
Our chauffeur kept us entertained all the way there and back.
Glad to see that you got some sewing done too.

It's so nice you have the comfort of warm friends close by. Your friends Gossip in the Garden is lovely! I like her scalloped border. I made mine in Kansas Troubles fabrics which don't really suit my taste buds anymore.

such a fun day with a great bunch of friends, lots of laughing, talking, eating and a wee bit of sewing ... a perfect day, thanks so much Sue for hostessing and Marina for chauffeuring - even the threat of being tossed out of the car to make room for bags of horse poo on the way home added to the laughs :)
