A Day In Geelong!

 Yesterday I caught up with all these lovely friends at the Geelong Patchwork & Quilters' Guild. We had such a wonderful time. There were some speakers. One was Kathy Doughty from Material Obsession. She was so interesting to listen to and we got to see some of her beautiful quilts.
Now I didn't get any stitching done at Friday Night's
Sew-In but I made up for it yesterday.
 
 I made my little hexagon flower for my pin cushion.
 And got a good start on this month's 
Vintage Kitchen block by Jenny.
I think this is the most stitching I have done when we all get together. As there were speakers, we had to sit quietly and listen. Usually I only get about 6 stitches done!
Our swap this time was a Gail Pan design.
I was lucky enough to get this gorgeous table runner
made by Sue (Kiwikids).
 Sue also made these two cute pin cushions.
 I made this cushion which went home with Jo (ButterZ).

Thanks for another lovely day of friendship, girls.
I'm already looking forward to our next catch up.
