Lovely Sewing World Ladies and FNSI

Good morning everyone. Sewing World  at Underwood is my local Patchwork and Quilting store. The lovely owners Irene and Angie and their right hand woman Angela have been a wonderful support of my designs and patterns from the beginning of my foray into this field. Sewing World is an Aladdin's Cave of all things patchwork and stitching with beautiful fabrics, inspiring samples everywhere and loads of threads and notions. They are also agents for Bernina and Janome...great to have all this so close to home.
The girls invited me along yesterday to both their daytime and evening stitching club to have a little chat and talk about my work, view their beautiful show and tell and share a cuppa.
Here are all my bits and bobs spread about for the ladies to have a peek at.
and the other end...
Here I am with the lovely Irene.
The ladies of both groups were very kind and loads of fun. I really enjoyed spending time with them and seeing all their gorgeous show and tell. So thank you everyone for a great day.

Tonight I am linking up with Wendy of Sugarlane quilts for..
where we bloggers from all over Australia and sometimes even overseas stitch together and visit each other the next day to share what we have been working on. I have not decided what I will be working on yet as I have several things to choose from but I think perhaps the little girls stockings need to get started.
So I shall have the Tim Tams on ice ready to share.
Enjoy your weekend everyone.
A cuppa certainly tastes better shared with a friend. (graphic from Let's Enjoy Beauty)
