Fabulous Friday

What started out as a ho hum day because I had to work a full day instead of a half day, turned out to be a great day after all. Today was our groups 'patchwork day' and normally I can get there around lunch for a few hours but not today. However I did manage to catch up with a couple of the girls when I rushed up after work, not to mention have a cuppa and a chat.

Kerry was busy sewing the blocks together for our group quilt which is to be raffled to raise funds for cancer research. Pop over to Mt. Perry Quilters to check it out. Fingers crossed I can get there in a fortnight. Some of my sewing time last weekend was spent making the strip borders for the quilt.

The other sewing time was for mug mats for Mothers Day. Of course I forgot (again) to take a photo of the one for my MIL and she received that Tuesday but here is the one for my mother. The background wall is actually apricot.

I have five other tops made that were to be for a Cent Sale but it was postponed till 'Christmas in July' so that gives me a little breathing space.

Getting back to my fabulous friday, after catching up with the girls, I arrived home to find not 1, not 2, but 3 lovely treats in the mail. 1st is this Spider-Man panel.

My intention is to sandwich and quilt it into a wall hanging for my nephew. He's crazy about Spider-Man and has ordered a Spider-Man cake for his birthday. I like to plan ahead as his birthday isn't till February, and any excuse to purchase fabric, right?

The 2nd was the lates edition of Australian Patchwork and Quilting which I will sit down with a cuppa and browse through tomorrow when I can really relax.
And the 3rd (and most exciting) was the silver envelope from DD, for Mothers Day. I'm being very strong and saving it for Sunday.

Right now DH and DS are watching the Centenary Match between Australia and New Zealand so I've got some quiet time to catch up on all the blog news. I'm not really sure which WIP to bring out next. The benefit of having several I guess is that there will always be one I'm itching to finish. That's my excuse anyway and I'm sticking to it.

Happy Stitching
