Stitching with Friends.

I went stitching with friends today at my friend Sandra's lovely home. We were a small crew but a fun day was had by all. Sandra as I have mentioned before is an extraordinary cook and always treats us to something devine. Today we had Almond flan with raspberries and cream...Yum! And of course our tea out of lovely china cups....I love every 2nd Wednesday. Sandra purchased my baby quilt pattern "Honey Bear Wishes" to make for a friend's new little one and she had show and tell with it today. She has done a beautiful job and her fabric choice was gorgeous. Sandra has a wonderful talent when it comes to putting fabrics together in a glorious way and this wee quilt is no exception. It gave me a real thrill to see it done in her colourway. It's the bit I love best seeing what others do with my pattern.

I have posted off my parcel to my Santa Sack partner TARNYIA a little early but I have had such a busy week tied to my computer guessed it 5 sets of instructions and YAY! I did it. For a few weeks anyway. So today I got to do some nice easy peasy stitching and chat.
Hmmm! Wonder what's in here??????
Off to perform my 'Domestic Goddess" duty and cook dinner.
