Pipkin's Night before Christmas


Lol i changed my mind about the fabrics again for Pipkin's Night beofre Christmas,i got the first border on.


Then i got the second border on ,i didnt know how i would go with the hexie patchwork ,but it was easy,phew.


Then i popped the third and last border on,i am pleased with the way it was looking.


Then i got it sandwiched together.


The first round of quilting it i checked the back to see how it looked and i had sewn one of my pattern pages to the back,lol,thinks that a sign to cleanup my sewing space,lol.
Hope your day is a good one.

Friendships


Yesterday i  had a fabulous day with my 2 friends Sue and Lyn,we decided to meet in front of Jiddi's patch in Geelong,you no just incase we needed something,and yep we were right we all needed something,lol.

 Then we decided to go to a lovely organic cafe called diversitat wholefoods,which i forgot to take pics of our meal,we were all too busy chatting,lol,unusual for us,i had a lovely Lentil burger with satay sauce and a lovely garden salad and some chips,it was all very yummy and i know we will all be visiting this cafe again.
 Also inside this cafe you could buy lots of organic and wholesome food and spices,skin care,Lyn was very happy with her purchases of spices,hmm i wonder what these two are chatting about ,looks serious,lol.

After Lyn went home Sue and i decided to do some shopping and Sue has made a start on her xmas shopping,we found some lovely shops.

We might've visited a bag shop and we both might've come home with a new bag,lol,Sue is a bad influence on me,lol,got to blame someone.
And i bought 2 pretty fabrics from jiddi'sPatch.
We had a wonderful day together with much chatting and laughing,its good to have such wonderful friends.
Hope your day is a good one.

A UFO Finish


I started this project back in 2015 at a Gail Pan workshop

 I only had to add a couple of pieces to this lovely pattern by Gail Pan and then to frame it.

 So together with hubby we decided how to tackle the framing,it wasnt hard to put together,i dont know why i waited so long to put it together,lol.

It looks great hanging in the entry it might get moved yet,lol,a woman's prerogative to change her mind,lol,this lovely pattern is called Vintage Sewing Collage .
Hope your day is a good one.
