Phew ... the week's over :o).

It's been a non stop week!! I seem to have been constantly on the go, which isn't such a bad thing because it's actually been a very productive week too, I've managed to get LOADS of stitching done :o)!!! I'm half way through another quilt at the moment ... no name for it just yet. I'm using fabrics from the Allspice Tapestry range from Moda - they're probably a couple of years old - yes, that's how long it's taken me to get around to using them LOL. They're coming together so nicely I don't understand why it took me so long to use them!!! Just a sneaky peek for now ... and the bit you're peeking at doesn't even have much 'Allspice' in it at all.

I was invited to join Mary and the girls at "The Sewing Basket" at 122 Brisbane Rd, Mooloolaba last Wednesday as their guest as they were having their very first "Club meeting" since the opening of the new store. What a lovely morning it was. There were lots of very friendly ladies there for the meeting and the staff there - Mary, Cath and all the staff made me feel so welcome. I got to show them some of my new patterns and a few of my quilts. I can't believe I forgot to take some piccies while I was there - next time :o). All of the Club members were given one of these cute pens and notebooks and because I was their guest for the day I was presented with these gorgeous flowers ...... wasn't that just lovely!! I was chuffed to bits :o). I had a wonderful time, so thanks again to all the staff there - just in case they read this :o)!! The shop is looking just fabulous so if you're visiting the Sunshine Coast make sure you pop in to see the girls at The Sewing Basket and tell them I said Hi :o)!!!
I also got a lovely surprise from my DD1 in London today. I arrived home to find a gorgeous bunch of flowers waiting for me ........ they were from Tahlia and Luke for Mother's day ... it certainly put a huge smile on my face. I know she reads my blog so if you'll just indulge me for a second .......Thank you my darling daughter ... and thank you too dear Lukey :o). Love you both to bits!!!!! ... now I'll wipe the little (happy) tear away [[sigh]] ... missing them soooo much!!!
I'll finish off with a bit of kitty love ... this is my Sophie sitting in the beanbag watching TV ... isn't she the cutest kitty you ever saw LOL?????

Cats get into some funny positions don't they! Kate-in-stitches (on my sidebar) showed a picture of her white cat in the dishwasher while I was offline!
Sounds like a lovely mothers day for you.
