Friends Old and New

Some old friends from work were in town visiting last week.  
Hiro came from Japan and Fabiani from Brazil.  
It was so good to see them both!  I taught Hiro's wife, Yuki, how to quilt.  

Left to right.  My cohorts in quilty crime on the left and right with Fabiani in the middle.

Me (looking like a weirdo) and Fabiani.

Fabiani took this when we went out to dinner as a group.  
Fabiani, my friend Robin and her hubby (my boss), then Hiro.  
Such a fun night!  
Best steak I have ever eaten, at Knights in Ann Arbor.

Yuki sent me this adorable cat bag, pins and even some fabric ink.  So thoughtful!

Aren't these pins the cutest??

I had some fabric shipped to Yuki in Japan and this cute cat stamp was on the package!

My friends, Robin, Judith and I took Fabiani to the local quilt shop. 
 I also visited an antique shop where I found this adorable set of "Jacks".  
They are a S & P that look like my beloved Jack.  So of course they had to come home with me.

Here we all are in the quilt shop.

I bought these 2 patterns.  Hoping to make that trailer one for my hubby. (for the RV)

Thought these fabrics would make excellent fish (yes I have to finish that quilt up soon too)

Love fabric for labels and that background to add to the fish quilt.

I spotted this pattern awhile ago but had, up until now, resisted purchasing it.  
It is the reindeer, Prancer.  
Prancer is one of our all time favorite Christmas movies.  I see some cross stitching in my life!

Me, too Hallie.  
I'm exhausted!!  
I had to get back to work for a break, LOL.  Not really, work has been just as busy!!!

What have you been up to??
