Tilda + Tea = FUN!!

Here we are, it's Tuesday again ... the weeks sure to whiz by quickly, don't they. Did you have a good weekend? Let me tell you part of what I got up to. It involves good friends, yummy food cups of tea and coffee and the gorgeousness that is TILDA!

I think most of us are aware of ... and have probably drooled over!! ... the pretty Scandinavian flavoured fabrics, books and giftware from the design studio of Tone Finnanger. The Tilda name is expanding and Australian gals can now add some Tilda prettiness to their stashes by visiting their local quilt shops ... including Quilters Angel ... YAY!!

To celebrate adding Tilda goodies to their already extensive range of pretties, the lovely Marion and Steph organised a Tilda Tea Party to launch the new additions. There was a table full of yumminess ...


And of course, the fabricky yumminess ...

Pre-cuts, gorgeous books ...

... fabrics ...

... pretty tins, scrapbooking papers, softies ... and Nikki Tervo's sweet quilt made with Tilda fabrics ...

... kits, more pretties ... OOOHH!! Are you drooling as much as I did?? :0)

Oops! Look who decided to be a 'Tourist' and jump in my photo! Hi Sue!! :0) Now all we needed to add to make a real party of it was ...

... about 50 lovely ladies! Oops! Look who I've sprung on the right there pinching the caramel tarts ... the inimitable Nikki Turvo joined the fun and told us why she loves Tilda. All in all, it was a fantastic morning ... though my footsies were pretty sore by the end of it! It's SUCH hard work standing around sipping tea and chatting to people whilst looking at pretty fabrics! Tee! Hee! Hee! Thanks for a fantastic morning of fun, Marion and Steph!! :0)

OK ... I'm now off to have a cup of tea and think about writing pattern instructions for my Girls Stitch In project ... only thinking about it mind you! Tee! Hee! Hee! You can't rush into these things!! :0) Enjoy the rest of your week ... may it be filled with everyday miracles ... a cuppa you didn't have to make for yourself, green lights on your way to work, a call/email from a friend you haven't heard from in a while, a pretty flower in your garden, a hug from someone you love! :0) Til next time ...

BEAR HUGS!!

CHEERS!

Perfect little celebration of the Tilda pretties.
The yummies look delicious too.

A perfect excuse for a tea party Kris. It must be Tilda season... Iposted a book review today on Tone's latest book. Isn't it wonderful!!
Have a great week,
