a hexie adventure, some tea cosies and lovely blogger friends

Well there was no chance of lacking inspiration for a title today.
On Friday I headed out to buy the little lobster clasps to make the handle for my hexie purse. Found all the right bits and pieces! We were ready for our Sunday meeting.


This morning my purse and I headed out for a bloggy meet at the Mansion in Bundoora.

Right ready to go... After taking a slightly wrong turn at Albequerque I made it to the mansion and thankfully Tracey arrived so I knew that I was in the right place.
My purse was welcomed lovingly and there was even an offer of it to be shared amongst the group, some quality time with each person, then there was the suggestion that I could make one for each of the girls!

Here is the wonderful group of ladies that I spent the afternoon with..
left to right-Annette-Jindi's cottage, Christine-Macdonalds patch, Simone- quilts and cats, Elyte- Tea fabric and other things, Melody-House on the hill, Tracey-Mistea Crafts and Yours truly on the end.
We chatted, ate, chatted, drank, chatted, ate, chatted and looked at tea cosies, and of course chatted some more.
Here are some of the tea cosies at the exhibition.
 the brown one at the rear of this trio is Tracey's creation. Rapunzel lowering her hair from her tower window to a Prince below (who is hidden ).

There will be another meet happening in the future as we all had a great time.
Maybe even a hexie support group?
Thankyou girls for such a lovely day.
cheers

I really enjoyed the afternoon and was very motivated to sew up a storm when I got home. Hope your hexie purse made it home with you. I wasn't successful in prying it off you but maybe one of the others was.
