meeting bloggy friends....

Susan from Thimblestitch came to Melbourne and a meet up was organised with Elyte (tea, fabric and other things), myself and Robyn. We met at Tranquility in Moonee Ponds and had lots of fun looking through all the loveliness. It is an amazing shop filled to the brim (literally) with gorgeous fabrics and so many patterns. The quilts on display were gorgeous. We got the mandatory photo and Joanne was most obliging in taking the pics.
We met back at Puckle street after Robyn and I had a bit of a Cook's tour as I missed the turn off for the parking lot, and we had a lovely chat over cuppa's and cake. The fella at the Cafe was a host and a half, in the vein of Basil 
Fawlty but luckily the food was delicious.
Lovely Susan gave me a little parcel of fabrics to add to my novelty hexies and two hugs from Fiona  and Michelle that they had sent with her. You are all such honeys!
Of course I had to make the hexies up straight away, the fabrics are so pretty. As the football was on last night it was a perfect opportunity to get some hexies happening.



 these are some extras I prepared earlier in the week. They are on my list to do this weekend.
 Some Swan Lake hexies prepped ready to go too...


Now for the bloggy meet pic!
Elyte, Robyn, me & Susan

I think this photo sums it up.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
cheers

Hello Marina - my first visit to your blog and I love your header photograph! I had forgotten all about those lovely little blue tins of pins, what memories it brings back of my mothers sewing box. Love your hexagons and what a great day out you had.
