The "Happy Birthday" plate made an appearance this past week as I have joined the Fabulous Fifties Club. Forty doesn't sound too bad now?? I had a wonderful day sharing lunch with friends and then a wonderful Chinese dinner with my family. Everyone chipped in and got me a new stereo for my car, complete with handsfree and bluetooth for my iphone - I am one very happy camper.
My dearest and oldest friend, Maree, who lives in Melbourne contacted Jan and together they did some Secret Womens Business, and I received a voucher from Patchwork on Stonleigh and these beautiful flowers.
On Sunday, the dogs started going crazy and there was a knock at the door. In comes Syndi, Sarah (my God Daughter) and Maree. Syndi, Maree and I all lived in the same street growing up and we have remained close friends throughout out lives. They had driven all the way up from Melbourne to take me out to dinner! I was so surprised! We had a wonderful dinner at a local Italian restaurant and then we stayed up half the night talking and laughing and catching up on each other's gossip. I am so blessed to have such wonderful friends.
Not much has been happening on the sewing front but I have managed to prepare the start of border number 3 for Swan Lake.
Klosjes have been having a rest and here are a couple of my new favourite hexie flowers. I have been dying to use that black spot in something and finally got it to work in Swan Lake.
We are now back up to speed with the internet so I can start catching up on what everyone else has been up to.
