Busy Weekend

My busy weekend begun on Friday night as soon as I finished work - I had to pack all of my stock for the local "Quilter's Easter Showcase" which I attend locally every year.

Then it was up early Saturday morning to travel to the venue and set up my little stand.  It was "Garden Treasure's" real first public appearance and was adored by many, with quite a few sign ups for this BOM - It makes the hard slog of putting together a Block of the Month worthwhile when people love it as much as you do -It makes the heart swell !

This "Friendship Day" is always a lovely day full of lovely quilters and lots of lovely trade tables. You can just see my Lucious Lucey quilt to the right it was her first public appearance too.

The organisers do such a great job.  Well done ladies !

Yesterday after spending the morning cleaning and tidying I baked an Orange Cake and sat down to stitch.  I have had some little stitcheries traced out for a new project for quite some time but I hadn't stitched a stitch in them as I currently have 2 Block of The Months I am working on - They got the better of me yesterday and even though I have heaps to do on the BOM's I felt I just had to stitch one of these new drawings.

Oops - Forgot to turn this pic - You'll have to imagine the basket up the right way LOL

So after a few hours this little block is finished.  I can't wait to start the next one :)

My lovely friend Jenny has today released her latest magazine so this morning I downloaded my copy from her store and have it ready to sit and enjoy at morning tea time.

Hugs - Fee xx
