It Doesn't Get Much Better Than This....a..

....beautiful fun day with "Girlfriends", with special guest Lizzie.. Lurline kindly invited us spend the day in her home to meet Lizzie, beautiful fresh prawn rolls for lunch, cakes, lots of chatter and fun..above is Lizzie me and Lurline. ...
See Lurline's beautiful' 30's Dresden Plate table topper...all hand -quilted, so beautiful, I love it!
Hmm...not much sewing getting done here...more like eating scones with strawberry jam and cream, catching up with what we have been doing.
The container in front is filled with crochet crown head bands... Pattie made them for her grand kids...
Here is Lizzie, Kris and Prue wearing the head bands. Pattie (no blog ) is amazing with the things she creates...we were all "Queens for the Day"..
All the girls are amazing...the work they do is just beautiful, wish I had taken more photos!

How gorgeous is this quilt that Pattie made...this photo just does not do it justice, all in repros, the colours are more vibrant and the quilt is huge...must be bigger than a King size quilt!

Dear Pattie again working on a very fine knitted shawl...can you make out the trees worked into the knitting..Sorry I cut your head off Pattie, I really wanted to show off your work..
It was such a lovely day...Thank you so much Lurline for making us so welcome it was lovely to catch up with the girls again..and lunch was just yummo!.
So lovely to meet you Lizzie, I loved your wool applique and look forward to seeing it finished on your blog..
I must add that I'm so proud to be in such good company...Thank you girls!
Have a lovely day..take care..
