Tea Party .....

It's been a social week....

Monday night was Tilda Tea Party night at my LQS 'The Quilters Angel" 

Isn't this a lovely spread?  And that's our wonderful Kris pouring us cuppa's in the background... she was kept very busy!  And all served on pretty plates and cups and saucers... we were made to feel very special...



I was in awe of these lovely roses they had on the table.....  



I was lucky enough to win this lanyard and scissor clip as a door prize... they were donated by Sue in Tilda fabrics.  A perfect prize for me as I am always leaving my scissors on my lap and drop them on the floor when I get up - I have spoilt the ends of a number of pairs like that....


...  Tilda fabrics were 25% off - these ones happened to come home with me....
(I find it VERY hard to pass up a good deal on fabric)



Meantime I have continued with my Tea Time Teddy's and beginning to think they might be Terrific in Tilda fabrics???


I needed to visit a newsagent this week and noticed this......  clearly not a quilt lover does their labelling - they probably think they are just the same as blankets!!  But it did give me a giggle..


I do hope your week has been good -- and your up and coming Easter weekend is going to be full of fun, relaxation and laughter...

Righto, Gotto Go..... those new fabrics need a bit of petting!

The tea party table is so scrumptious! You were treated like royalty or should I say royal tea? (lol) Was there red carpet at the door too? Those pink rose plates are to die for and the rose bouquet too. Gorgeous!! I prefer when they stamp their labels on the words than the picture but this one was definitively funny! ;^) Have a lovely weekend too.
