Sunshine Saturday

Thie photo is from Friday, I was lucky to be invited to celebrate Jan's 70th birthday, we had a wonderful lunch..the cake was Black Forest Gateau..it looked sensational.


I spent a few hours down at the beach yesterday, it was warm, there was a bit of a breeze and even though the tide was way out, there was enough water to cool off now and then.

Yesterday morning I sewed the binding onto three quilts, now to wait for a cooler day to get the hand sewing done.

I worked away at the beach and at home last night on this hexie, only to find I am one short...did I lose it somewhere or not count straight when I was cutting out???
I am off to Gisborne this morning for a sewing day with the lovely ladies there.
Happy stitching.

Such a beautiful part of the world you get to live in Sue. Would be so wonderful to wander down to the beach & stitch. Enjoy your stitching day today at Gisborne.

Looks like you had a productive day getting that binding sewn on and that hexie rosette is so cute - did you solve the mystery of the missing hexie? Hope you had fun with the Gisborne girls :-)

How lovely to sit at the beach and sew - lots to watch there too. Very special to share the birthday and well done with the quilts. Maybe there is a lonely hexie left at the beach....

Speaking of working with tiny pieces.....those hexies are smaller than I’d be able to manage. That cake looks scrumptious. I love cake. Was it as tasty as it looked? XO
