Tuesday Patchwork...this and that..

Wow, what a gorgeous day today was at my Tuesday patchwork group..
With a little help of one of the girls, I pinned Country Charmer ready for quilting...
...while a couple of other girls worked on Desa's star quilt...this is the back of the quilt, the colours are just so bright and happy, a gorgeous mix of lime green, blues and pinks...
After Patchwork at home...Country Charmer is already under Sweet Susie waiting for me to quilt her.
This week I treated myself to a new little digital TV for my sewing room, complete with a DVD player built in...
.....so I can watch my free motion quilting DVDs while I sew....now why didn't I think of doing that before!....That's Helen Godden with her great FMQ tutorial DVD that came with SS...
This sure beats running backwards and forwards from the family room....
....and to top off a great super day, a celebration was in order..... not all the girls were present today, so for the ones that couldn't make it...
Sue, hiding at the back there,  made us an oh so yummy chocolate cake, and brought in  a bottle of some bubbly to celecbrate a wedding.
That gorgeous girl third from the left married my son on Sunday.
Sorry, no wedding photos, it was just a beautiful family day, we are so lucky and blessed to have her join our family......♥
