Summer Mini and FNWF

The latest mini swap I have done has a Summer theme .... and my lovely one arrived from Anorina 


Such a lovely modern and happy mini.... a lot of beautifully done work in it... the little stitched disk has been bound then attached to the beautifull pieced star ... and then quilted too... 


it even matches my lovely roses ...

Anorina is one of our young modern Australian designers and I love her work and thrilled to have a piece of her art in my home.

Included with the mini was some threads and needles... we never have enough of those do we


Thank you so much Anorina, I love my mini and that saying is one we often use in our family when we talk to each other so it is just perfect for me...

On the first Friday of each month Cheryll aka Dory hosts FNWF and I love sewing with other people.... this Friday I did something different and joined a group of ladies at The Quilters Angel for an evening sewing ..... Marion hosts this and we get a lovely glass of wine... or tea ... or water (I'm sure you will have no problem guessing what I had) and a range of eats... we can shop and sew and chat and later comes tea with ...... cake...


chocolate and mint and strawberry all in one... just delicious and on such lovely crockery.... it was very relaxing and fun and a lovely group of stitching women

... I worked on the buttonhole stitch applique for my teddy... I did shop... I needed some brown thread for her eyes....


Widget stayed at home to look after Hubz... they made burgers and read books and were fast asleep by the time I got home.

Great sewing with friends.. both in the flesh and cyberly

Righto, Gotto Go.... 'tis weekend enjoyment time

  19. Such lovely photos. Anorina is very talented - I love what she has made for you. That cake looks amazing (I am a huge fan of chocolate and mint) - I'm tempted to try and Google a recipe so that I can make one just like it. Because I'm hungry right now!
