Exeter friendship day

 Yesterday I set off early with my dear friend Marina to the Exeter friendship day. The hall was beautifully set up with quilts and displays.
 Pauline from Calico crossroads was there with her stall, she had beautiful things.
 I had a great day with my all my friends, here is Cathy and Sarah.
 Razzy and me.
 When we got there we all got a little present each, I received this cute little fabric thread tidy and a needle keeper. So pretty.
 Of course I did make a few purchases. I bought some Lynette Anderson christmas fabrics, they are lovely. Now to find a project for them.
 And these cute craft keepers, you can wind your threads around the body. I thought they were a great idea. Good for that "special " thread you have been saving.
 I did manage to get some stitching done. I finished block one on my Leanne's house quilt.

And block 2 is almost done. This is a lovely block to stitch. I am really enjoying it.

Today I have baking to do for the boys lunch boxes for the week and you can bet I'll be in my sewing room playing with fabrics throughout the day as well.
I hope you have a great day.
