First Finish For February!!!

Hmmm, that heading is a bit of a mouthful with all those "f's" LOL.
Great news though ...... I've [finally] finished Brooke's quilt!!!! I think I mentioned this quilt in one of my first posts - yep, here it is here ;o) - Goodness, that was August 08!!! And look at that, there are the fabrics that I bought to start the Panda quilt!!! Eeeek!!! ....... It's (ha ha - "they've") been on the go for that long!!! Plus now I get to add it to my OPAM list :o).
Here's the back ....................My DD1 loves it, she says she'd like one like this too ... hmmm, maybe I should start on hers now he he he.
That's my gorgeous girl Tahlia (bridesmaid to be) on the right (direct from London - we're SO excited to have her home!!!) with Brooke (the bride to be) on the left - we went out for high tea for Brooke's bridal shower last Sunday.It was lovely, we went to "High Socie-tea" at Clayfield.
The china was soooo pretty - Royal Albert, and look at this ... sugar lumps!!!and the food was so yummy ...... would you believe this was between just 3 of us!!!??!!! And we pretty much demolished that too LOL ......... so delicious. And the best part ... what you couldn't eat they gave you a 'doggy box' to take it home. Might have been better if they'd told us that before hand then we might not have scoffed so much LOLOL.
We're really looking forward to the wedding, we get to stay at the Sunshine Coast for the weekend as it's too far to drive back after the wedding - so that means we get to spend a bit more time with DD1 and her boyfriend Luke as they only arrived from London last Sunday morning and they're going back in a couple of weeks. I went shopping yesterday and bought a new dress for the occasion - I also bought a new dress to wear to Ross (DS) & Alicia's (DIL2B) wedding the week after ;o).

Talk soon .......
