A Fabulous Saturday

Friday night my friend Pammi(get a blog Pammi :)) rang & asked me if i had plans for Saturday. My reply was no & she said she was heading Bayside way & would i like to come & we'd visit our good friend Joy. Off we went out for a fabulous day. Thanks for a fabulous day Pammi & Joy. We picked Joy up & off we went to Thread & Ginger . Lovely little shop. I only purchased a few things there. :)
Some pieces for the Civil War quilts & some hanky linen.
And this cute little sewing purse.

Next stop was lunch at McDonalds & then off to Joy's home away from home - Bayside Stitches & Craft shop. Lots of lovely things in there to look at. Only bought a few things to begin with.
Some ric rac, purple fabric, bag wadding & glue refills. I ran out of the refills making all those hexies & my local shop didn't have stock. The only other shop close by me who sells similar glue refills is too expensive. Whilst Joy & Pammi were being served i kept eying off a couple of yummy containers. Joy asked me had i seen the purple suitcases. "What purple ones?" Joy pointed to the ones i'd been eying off. Well i didn't realise they were purple. lol. You can guess what happened next.....
Yep they came home with me. They are so cute. And the other container i was eying off was this one
I'd admired this little case when Joy bought hers. I think i'll use it for my hand piecing projects.

Then we went back to Joy's for a chatty visit & look at what i got

Joys latest gorgeous pattern. Thank you so much Joy.

Friday whilst in Ipswich i went to the cheapie shop & found this gorgeous box to add to my collection
and no sewing room is complete without......

Johnny Depp. :)

Happy Stitching,

Jeanette, What a wonderful day you three ladies had together. Thats a very special gift.(Friendship) What lovlies you bought. Are those containers like a suitcase? What are the sizes? Nosy me eh??? O haven't seen them around here. They would be soo cool to take anywhere with a project inside & look very COOL when you take out your stitch!!!.I hope you 3 gals have many more days like this one again. Blessings: Dianne.
