A wonderful day!

Yesterday I spent an amazing day with some dear friends, I had a gala time! Food, stash shopping, chatter and more food, just the top of the world!
A doll quilt that I made for Jess.  It's a challenge design issued by Kathleen Tracy on the SQT group.  It's 17 1/2" square, cotton batting, hand quilted with Pearl No. 8 with muslin backing.
 A fully lined drawstring pouch for Tony with a stitched designed by Plum Street Samplers (freebie). The 32ct Belfast white linen was tea-dyed in a mottled fashion.  Floss is DMC 3371.

 Some simple hemp tied calico and homespun pincushions for Jess, June, Lillie and Jackie.

Lovely gifts from Jess.  The log cabin pincushion is just super lovely!
A wonderful zippered pouch and very cute personalised pincushion from Lillie. 

Then there was the lovely lunch treat from June.  Many thanks to Jackie for ferrying us around. 

Needless to say, I am over the moon by your company and generosity!  Thank you so much everyone for a wonderful day!

Some stashing done :)
Here's my Broderie Perse quilt to date.  Need to get those flowers appliqued onto the red and cream triangles.


  1. I had to chuckle when I saw the stitchery about sleeping!

  3. Sounds like a fantastic day! The gifts are all fantastic! I love the little doll quilt, and Plum Street's freebie. Nice stashing, too!

  4. It was indeed a fantastic day where friends come together to eat and chat. We'll do it again in Penang. Just tell me when.
