A Finish

I love this pattern designed by Lynette Anderson called Garden Gnome Needle book and Scissor keep and i am so glad that i picked up a couple of the gnome buttons as well as i think it makes a nice finish.

This is the scissor keep finished its been a long time since i have made one of these and i wasnt sure whether i would remember how to put it together,lol.

The Needle Book is finished also ,its been awhile since i made something in blues,lol,i enjoyed it.

There are plenty of pockets inside and it was good that i could use Lynette's fabric that was in my stash.

I am really pleased with this set and is a gift for a friend ,so another finish for the pressie box.
Hope your day is a happy one.

For FNSI i worked on tracing out the pieces for this pattern.To see what the other ladies got up to go visit lovely Wendy here .

Thought while i was cutting out for one i that i could make two while i was at it.

This is the other colour way i am making this pattern in,i decided to use the Applique' paper of hugs and Kisses as i bought a pack from Kerry in Nundle a couple of years back.
So i watched a video of Helen's and did the needleturn her way and i am really pleased with how it worked out,if you would like to watch the video go here.
Hope your weekend is a good one.

Oops i have been online Shopping

I bought this pattern while visiting Helen's 1/4" shop in Tassie earlier this year, and saw that Teresa made this pattern up using the kit and it was so pretty,so i did a bit off online shopping,lol.

and bought the kit and also a couple more of Helen's patterns,cant wait to start these projects as i thoroughly enjoyed making up this pattern of Helen's which was the first time i had used a pattern of Helen's,lol,i am hooked now,if you are interested in any of Helen's patterns go here .
I was so rapted with the service ,lovely Jo had rang me to say that she was doing the order and that the kit came in 2 colourways,pink or blue,how lovely that she rang to check,,i can see me being a regular now,lol.
Hope your day is a happy one.

This pattern is called Garden Gnome Needle Book and scissor keeper.

And i have choosen my fabrics,i bought quite a few of Lynette's fabrics when our lovely friend Michelle took us to Eastcoast Fabrics last year,and Chez i am using your jelly roll pieces of Lynette's that you gave me,thankyou ladies.

A Fun Day with Friends

I meet up in Ballan with my friends Barb,Anne and Lyn and we did a bit of retail shopping at first,lol not good at doing group selfies,only just got Lyn in,lol

Barb and Anne having a discussion.

I was good and just bought some pretty Tilda fabric and some chalk pencils.

Lol Lyn is one funny friend,here she is just hanging around,it was freezing cold as we walked up the streets of Ballan,but the sky was a pretty blue.

Just like the kids the girls wanted a ride on the steel horse,lol.

 Lol how funny is this sign and we all loved the daushound bench seat.

 Lyn made a couple of purchases.

 See no Evil,talk no evil ,hear no evil in the first pic i took which is the pic on the right lyn got confused and forgot which monkey she was to be,lol,lots of laughs here.

We had the most amazing lunch at the cafe Zest up the road,Anne was extra hungry and couldnt wait for me to take a pic,lol,these zest burgers were the best,freshly made big thick beef patties,onion marmalade jam,cheese bacon lettuce mayo,wow it was so tasty and was only $11,great value ,great service as well,top restaurant,Barb had a lovely braised beef with mash and peas,so tender it fell apart on the fork.
Thankyou ladies for a awesome day i so enjoy catching up with my blogging friends,looking forward to our next get together.
