Friends

Today was a lovely surprise. Earlier we received a message from Helen telling us she was taking us somewhere for morning tea but she wasn't telling as any more than that. 
It was all very mysterious! She took us to Devon Pixies for a lovely Devonshire tea. It's so nice here! 
There were gifts for us all too. Helen was so thrilled with our idea to have friends make her a teapot block to celebrate her 70th birthday. The quilt has turned out so beautifully that she wanted us to have a sweet memento of it and our friendship too. She made each of us a gorgeous needlecase in teapot fabric. Aren't they lovely? 
Inside are pockets of sewing notions and gorgeous buttons. How lucky are we? We all know how lucky we are to have each other and to share the special friendships we have. I am so grateful for these girls!!! 
I just love Helens quilt which she totally finished today! It's beautiful!!! 
More blocks on the back! 
This is the fabric Helen attacked to make our fussy-cut needlecases!!! Heheheh 
Such a special Tuesday stitching day today!!!! 
So lucky to have these girls in my life!!!! Love you to bits!
