A very productive day

I was going a bit bonkers during my week off looking after the poxy kid, so my young pal said she'd come for a play! Blog land is the only place an old bird like me would make friends with a spring chicken like B Fab!

She came bearing gifts (the best kind of friend ha ha). A slightly used but about to be thrown out cutting mat! Too long for my table, but practically perfect in every way!

we didn't muck around and quickly set up the machines.

A beautiful winter's day....the sun called us outside....

to the backyard of quilting! My old neighbour Wal came and repaired the table for me,
and we couldn't resist the sun. I needed sunglasses!

 We got 2 cot sized quilts basted, and then did some machining.

Fresh cupcakes made by Little Miss and I

and a little trip to the oppy, or a 'tea break' as we like to call it. B-Fab spotted
 these Ken Done placemats, perfect to go with....

my other set! Ah, the genius that is Ken Done!

Thanks, Brianna, for braving the pox and hanging us with us girls for the day.

Pox aside, what a perfect day!

Hey Bec
Great post! You put a smile on my face when I'm feeling rather down.
Sorry to hear Sib has the pox. I hope she is clearing up now. Want to get the girls together for a catch up over the holidays?

What a cool idea to take it all outside into the sunshine. Hope the pox has been eradicated!

Loving the table tennis cutting table - excellent idea!

Brianna said...

Had a great day and loved those cupcakes! Glad you are enjoying your mat except when it tried to injure you!

Wouldn't those placemats be great as embroidery patterns?
