The last two days have been long days, with lots of driving, so it is nice to have a quiet day at home!
I had a fun a day on Tuesday visiting WAGS group - hello, Pam! - a large group of quilters who welcomed us with open arms. It was a great day, thanks to all you girls and we were given a little insight by Kay into the wonderful missionary work being carried out in orphanages in Cambodia.
Yesterday was a very long bus trip with my local patchwork group. I left home at 8am returning at 6pm, having visited four quilt shops. I was a Good Girl (for a change, LOL!) and bought only two pieces of fabric - the newspaper print on the left (isn't it wonderful?) and a lovely, closely woven Quiltgate fabric, in khaki-green, that will have a multitude of uses (stems for my CWBQ, background for Blessings)!
I ordered the Blessings pattern (top pic) from The Quilted Crow girls in Tasmania - it arrived two days later Express Post, beautifully presented as above, too special to open! It is encouraging to deal with special people like Leonie and Deidre!
I'm off to prepare some sewing - happy weekend!
