A fun day.....

I worked on a couple more of my sampler blocks this morning....  trying to keep going whilst the motivation is hot hot hot for them...... I am enjoying these Paris Flea Market fabrics more and more - I guess I really am a lacy pretty pretty kind of girl ...



Then I went off to Toowoomba's huge big Agricultural event "Farmfest" .... land of big trucks, big dust, big mud and all sorts of other big farming thingies.....



Hubz wasn't working there today but I caught up with someone special....

Narelle was down to look at all the big farming thingies with her husband... so she dumped him with the dogs (literally - can you believe that????) and we went and put our feet up and had a cuppa coffee then a wander and lots of lovely chit chat... 

You can tell in this picture I am a lacy, pretty, pretty kinda girl can't you.... we both are.....



Tonight we both can stitch whilst our relevant Hubz's are watching the most important State of Origin footy stuff game 

I am going to continue with playing with these 1/2" hexies....


I am was neither a hexie maker nor a hand quilter but these are really quite fun

 Righto, Gotto Go... footy plus cold weather means some lovely seafood laksa is required....

More gorgeous blocks. Love that range of fabric you are using too. It is also very me lol. Might need to put it on the wishlist!

Lovely blocks! And the hexies look like fun.
One puzzlement though: footy? Not familiar with that term here in my part of the world (arizona). Maybe it's just me?

Sweet blocks, but it is those teeny hexies that got my attention, I do like those colours together.
You look just right for a big things farm show.
Enjoy your night of stitching.
