Tilda + Tea Party = FUN!!

Hello from WILD and WINDY Queensland! With grumpy ol' category 4/5 Tropical Cyclone Marcia bearing down on the Sunshine State ... there's NOT a lot of sunshine around and we're being blown off the top of our 'hill'! All hatches have been battened down and we're as ready as we can be ... we won't bear the brunt of this weather system, but there sure is some nasty wind around blowing heavy rain all over the place.

THANKFULLY ... last Sunday dawned warm and sunny ... the perfect weather for ... a TEA PARTY! :0) Add in some GORGEOUS Tilda fabrics and it was set to be a fantastic day, hosted by the Quilters Angel Dynamic Duo, Marvellous Marion and Stupendous Steph. :0)

There was ...

YUMMY treats ... teeny cupcakes, mini-bikkies, dainty ribbon sandwiches and fudgy chocolate brownies ... YUMMO!!!

There's Marion, making sure that everyone has cuppas and sweetie-treaties. :0) Some of the ladies enjoying a chat over their cuppas before ...

... Fiona and Chris from Two Green Zebras, the Australian agents for Tilda products, introduced the latest ranges of Tilda fabrics and products ...

... gorgeous books, fabulous fabrics, pretty accessories ...

... Tilda is SOOOOOOOO pretty and makes my shabby chic soul go pitty-pat! :0) I loved having a play with some of the new Tilda fabrics to show them off in projects for the tea party. Remember I showed you this ...

... a Tilda version of my Daisy Drawstring Bag (patterns now available at Quilters Angel!!) Well ...  there were some bits of those pretty fabrics left over. Hmmm ... seemed a shame not to play with them!! :0) So ... being the crazy stitcher that I am ... the night before the tea party, I was madly sewing, measuring, threading and the result was ...

... a pretty shabby chic Tilda mug bag. Loving how it turned out! :0) I can see that more of these pretty fabrics are going to be coming home with me!! If you think you need some for your very own self, you should catch up with Marion and Steph at Quilters Angel.

This weekend is the "BIG MOVE" weekend with my folks, so I'm not sure when I'll manage to get back here, but I'm hoping it won't be too long ... cos I've got some other finishes to show you. :0) Hope you've all got some fun stuff planned for the weekend ... and if you're a wind-blown, rain-soaked Queenslander ... stay safe and keep up with info updates. Til next time ...

WIND-BLOWN BEAR HUGS!!

CHEERS!

The tea party looks so beautiful. So sorry about mean old Marcia. I hope she skips back out to sea and bothers the sharks. No more inland tsunamis! And best of luck with your big move. Larry & I have moved old people 3 times in the past 4 years, so we know how challenging it can be. Happy thoughts and strong backs sent to you from Texas. :)

Take care,
Susan in Texas
