All for me

 I have some amazing friends let me tell you. My friend Cathy went on a trip to USA and attended a quilting retreat, as I couldn't go my American friends made me some gifts for Cathy to bring home and give  to me. Vanessa made me this gorgeous shoulder bag from my favourite fig tree fabric. I LOVE it.
 Cynthia made me this awesome little pouch, it will be perfect to carry in my hand bag.
 Plus all these little goodies.

 Cathy made me this beautiful bee block and got all the ladies from retreat to sign it for me. I'm going to make a mini quilt and hang it in my sewing room. I thought it was such a lovely idea.

 What do you think of this block, isn't it great. I tested this pattern for my friend Janice, it was so much fun to put together. Good job Janice, your instructions were perfect.
I have't done much sewing this week, instead I have been doing cross stitch. Its good to have a change. I made a little halloween project, now I just need to make it into a mini pillow. 
I also found some free cross stitch pear patterns in Pinterest, I sewed them up today and just need to stuff the other one. I thought they turned out pretty, cute. 

The weekend is nearly over for another week, they always go so fast. Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful week. xx

Oh my goodness - your friends sure spoiled you! Nice to know you were thought of while they were away. Lovely gifts, and that block was a great idea.

Lovely gifts, how sweet of your friends to send gifts back with Cathy. I love those cross stitch pears, I've only made one but they're a great free pattern.
