A Sewing Day and a Special Friend

I have had the loveliest weekend.  It started with Saturday and a workshop with Libby Richardson and Liz from Teddywinks. Very spoilt as always and the food was amazing -

How pretty did it all look.  We each received a copy of Homespun magazine, a bag full of choccies and of course a bag with our projects and kits.
This was one of our projects and the one I chose to work on. It involved a little bit of painting, so was good to do that while we had Libby there to oversee.
And loved this cute little project bag.
I also made a small start on this project. It reminds me of our sewing days.
Lots and lots of beautiful Christmas quilts on display, but I as a bit partial to this lovely redwork one of Liz's.

And then the rest of the weekend we got to spend with very special friends.  We had been so looking forward to this and had the most wonderful time, as I knew we would.  Always love visiting and checking out their sheep, and this time there was some cute little lambs -

And another very cute addition to the family "Peanut" -

Could have snuck her home with me, but I think they would have missed her.   Loved every minute of my weekend.  Cheryl
