FNWF ... even though it was ADWF (all day with friends)......

.... it all started with our monthly gathering at The Quilters Angel.... for serious stitching....

I took carrot cake ..........


... and collected a layer cake of "Papillon" which I scored on a weekend special from The Quilters Angel.... it's worth keeping an eye out on both their blog and facebook page for these.....

It's gorgeous...........


 Here are some of the girls hard at work.....
(Marion had been racing around all morning and was having a late lunch)


... and here's Kris and I hard at work.....


(took me all day to stuff that giant pink pincushion) 

 Kris brought me a lovely surprise... this month I was one of the OPAM winners and the prize was this lovely book full of inspiration....  look at the detail in this quilt on the cover ....


Robyn Ginn is a local quilter/artist and I have long admired her work... here is an example from the back cover.... 


... then I had to go off to the post office to post a parcel since it was somebodies birthday


.... and exhausted as I was I did sit and do a few stitches last night in front of the TV.... 
I finished all that grey blue steam and started on the gold teapot....


Then I had the most wonderful surprise...... I discovered it's a holiday on Monday.... I get Hubz to play with for an extra day....

Righto, Gotto Go... I'm off to see if I can find the white cricket pants...... hmmmmm
