How lucky am I…









Our online stitching group, FIS, we have just had the first swap for the year…our theme was Red Brolly

And just check this out….my very own personalized recipe folder…this absolutely gorgeous gift was made for me by Dawnie…you have guessed it, I was totally blown away…love the fabric, and I think she looks just like me….!!!!..….Dawnie thank you so much…mwah….(we just cleaned out our pile of recipes the other day that was sitting on our microwave)……..

I have received the most perfect gift…

Today we have a group of 11 ladies from Club Quilt heading on a road trip…not a big one, just to Dubbo to Craft Alive, we are starting our day at a new Cafe that has opened up here in town for Breakfast, then off to Dubbo, to the show, we might have morning tea there, and then heading out for a late lunch or afternoon tea, should be a good day…

Peg and Dale have been up to even more mischief…

that we meet in our lives
but only a very few

on our minds and hearts
It is these people that we will

important to us
as true friends
