My Place - Girlfriends! Day!

What a lovely day - lots of Show and Tell! How beautiful is this - camellias from Sandra's Dad's garden. Now as you know, my sewing table is quite long and what a variety we have here - enough to fill three vases, so my house is looking really pretty at the moment, thanks, Sandra!

A gorgeous quilt made for Carole! In flanelette - look at those glorious fabrics and hand quilting on the middle block - amazing!

Gwen, always with a big smile - a gorgeous quilt (Turning Twenty? - I think so) - all ready to be hand quilted in big-stitch Perle!

Here they are - special people - always lots of fun! Quite a few missing - lots more happy times ahead to catch up!
Now, this is pretty special too, a Banana Cake to die for! I used Lizzie's recipe - A House in the Country - Lizzie has another blog listed on her right Sidebar - Cook, I think. Check it out! I have never mastered a Banana Cake, but I've hit the jackpot with this one ! For all you cooks out there, this is a must try!

Little people need little bags and this one is for a special little Girlfriend! My daughter, Danielle, has gone crazy over these - our Byron is like his mum and collects rocks, crystals, etc. and I've had a request to make one for him with lots of little pockets - oh, well, we'll have to see what we can do! When time permits, I'll whip up a lot for the kids to give with birthday gifts inside!
Check out The Civil War Bride Quilt blog , to see another Post of interest - it is all coming along nicely! We'd love to have your visits and Comments!
Happy day!

Hey Lurline! Wow! Looks like a fun gathering at your place!! The flowers and quilts are all just gorgeous and I bet there was lots of chatting and giggling, too! I loooooove banana cake, but for years couldn't make one without it being soggy in the middle - finally found a recipe for banana bread and it works a treat! Yours looks pretty yum, though. Hope you had a lovely time with your stitching friends - Bear Hugs! KRIS
