get ready for some photos...

Today I spent a lovely day with the Kilmore Quilters at their quilt in. They were a very friendly bunch and so welcoming and generous. There was mountains of food to graze on and keep our sugar levels and strength up! We also received a gift on arrival, a wonderful zipped pouch and when I had to leave a little early one of the committee made sure I received a door prize before leaving.

Liz (from village quilters) had invited me to come and I sat with her and Rosalie and we had a great time.
I also got to catch up with Annette from Jindi's cottage and some other people I knew.
Marg Low had set up her beautiful wares and I was tempted by some lovely red and cream/white fabrics. Compensation for not having been able to attend the Quilts in the Barn exhibition. Speaking of which....wonderful Elyte sent me a secret surprise in the mail to make up for not having made it to the exhibition too.
It was such a pleasant surprise from a very thoughtful friend.
So what about the photos....
goodies from Elyte... I had so wanted one of these badges when I saw them on the Quilts in the barn blog, lucky me and a sweet tissue holder in beautiful fabrics.



  My Marg Low inspirational fabrics, at a bargain price too!

But wait there's more...
Some new hexies have been blooming in my garden thanks to a parcel that arrived from the Netherlands from my friend Els.
She said she would send some novelty fabrics and she sent me a huge pile! they are lovely. I just had to cut into some of them straight away, so roll the film...
 love Snow White and the six dwarves......

 the tally for novelty hexies is now 53.
Last but not least, the hexies I had prepped up to finish at Kilmore.

Add them to the list.
A great day topped of with a lovely dinner with some family.
Here's to friends and family!
Happy days
cheers

How cute is Little Red Riding Hood! The fabric in your gift bag is just beautiful such unusual fabric, how could anyone give it away.

I need to find that Snow white and 7 dwarves fabric. SO cute!

Mistea said...

Beautiful week at your place - Lots of loveliness there.
The flowers are way too cute, Snow White surrounded by her dwarves and the cheeky monkey.

Pretty red and whites you snagged.

Enjoy Sunday.

Your hexies are so cute Marina. Isn't the fabric from Els gorgeous! I love that selection of red and white fabrics. Lucky they fell into your bag!

Elyte said...

You have had a wonderful weekend. When you do eventually sew all your novelty hexies together, there will be a tale to tell about every flower. It will become a hexie story quilt. Snow White and the Six dwarves? Fairy tales revisited.
Love your red and white fabrics, glad to see the concept continuing.

Narelle said...

Lovely goodies and those novelty hexies are going to make the most adorable quilt.

Teresa said...

It was a lovely day Marina, and so good to have your company, good sewing, great food, such pretty things to see and indulge in, and lovely friends to meet with, what could be better. Hugs from Rosalie.

What a lovely time you've had. The hexies are wonderful, especially Snow White and the Dwarfs.

Susan said...

What a perfect day. It's so wonderful to be welcomed into a group....and to have the chance to see Marg. I love your fabric purchases and Elyte's gift. Your novelty quilt will definitely be an amazing project when you finish.

Anthea said...

Wow Marina I am as green as a frog, look as those Snow White & the Guys hexagons! Adore!
What are you planning to do with all your novelty hexy flowers?
Beautiful reds from Marg Low

It was so good to see you on Saturday, glad you had a good time. Such lovely surprises in your mail box, how lovely of Elyte to pick you up one of those lovely badges...and the new novelty fabrics, fabulous, especially Snow White and her dwarves. Those red/white bundles of Marg Low's really where too good to leave behind, so glad I picked one up too. Enjoy your new goodies and have a great week :)

Lisa said...

You've been busy. But by far the cutest thing on your blog is puppy in the next post, or should I say puppies. Having lost both our "boys" this year we are without doggy companions now and very much the worse for it. The house is so empty. We are trying to be very strong, but any sight of a puppy is very tempting, especially a very cute one, with muddy paws.

Carrie P. said...

and look at all those cute hexies. what great fabrics you are using.

shez said...

Janet said...

The zippered bag is gorgeous! And oh the hexies! So, so cute. I especially love Snow White and the dwarfs.
