Shopping - Cake - More Shopping

Saturday dawned sunshiny - perfect for a drive in the country.

First stop at Ballarat Patchwork for a spot of Sale shopping and collected these pretties.

On to cake for a spot of afternoon tea with some of local bloggers.

Lots of chatting and laughing,

And delicious cake and tea.

Then after cake we went to Ballarat Patchwork to check out the sale

And collected these goodies - they are much brighter in real life than they look here.

Yes, that is a set of apple core templates hiding under there - I may use them one day.

The lovely Jodie generously gave me a copy of her Monty and Pearl pattern - I really want to have a play with that, but it is back to work tomorrow.

Jindi's mum generously gave me the gorgeous little bag and the lanyard with the strawberries attached - how cute a little pin cushion and scissor pouch.

Look what was inside the bag - all this yummy!

A lovely way to spend a wintery afternoon - good company, good food and drink, and fabulous fabric - oh and on sale too!
Hope you spent the weekend doing something fun.
Happy Crafting

It's strange for me to read your saying "wintery afternoon" when it's smoldering hot and humid here in the "deep South"...wish I had some wintery afternoons right now.

Those are lovely gifts. I LVOE Lindt chocolates and dark chocolate is my favorite! The yardage material looks so bright and lovely. Looking at it makes me wish I sewed...happy weekend!

Awwwwwww Mistea, sounds like you had such a great time.

Love your fabric haul. Emma told me she was on sale but I'm on a budget this month. It's torture.
