Fun in my fabric world....

Guess who came for dinner...and lunch...and a sleepover too!

After a busy couple of weeks at work, I have been blessed with a visit from two dear dear stitching friends from my former country home...hooray!
We sat up VERY late last night (think early hours this morning!!!!) chatting and catching up with news, family info and just generally enjoying each others company...oh how I miss these girls in my daily life!
There was show and tell.
Today we went shopping at Pot Pourri Cottage (always nice!) and bought some bits and pieces. I was inspired by a teeny tiny quilt on display...how hard could little hexies be? Because they are little aren't they really really quick?????
Well...hmmmmm!
Here is my flower from 1/4" hexie papers. Looks great?
In comparison to R's MONSTER hexie flower it looks miniscule. 
J thinks it would make a great quilt....for a teeny tiny dolls house bed!
I don't think that it is the start of something big.
We have had yummy cupcakes...
and spent time stitching ( I have spent more time talking and procrastinating...go figure!)
So glad they are here!

You are so lucky to have a visit from your friends. Love that pic of both hexies! How cute! Have a wonderful weekend with your buddies!

I'm trying to work out if your hexie flower is microscopic or if the other hexie flower has been taking steriods. Either way both are very cute but don't think I would want to do a whole quilt of the tenny weeny ones. Tracee xx

Looks like you had a lovely time. Love the photo of the hexies, now I realise just how big Raelee's hexie flowers are.
