I’m still here ;o)!!!

My posts are a bit few and far between of late. I’ve got lots to tell you so pop the kettle on first, you might want a cuppa while you’re reading :o).
So what have I been up to for the past couple of weeks?? Well I’ve been helping a group of ladies to arrange this super fun “High Tea” that was being run as a fundraiser to help fund our upcoming “Redlands Quilt Extravaganza” being held in September.July 2011 039 Everyone seemed to be having a wonderful time, and the food was simply delicious … thanks to the fabulous ladies from the Cleveland Baptist Church. Lots of wonderful little crustless sandwiches, light as a feather scones with jam and fresh cream, tiny cupcakes and choccy delights that just melted in the mouth – just to name a few. Lots of chatter and loads of prizes to be won. I managed to grab a quick piccy before everyone arrived … didn’t the tables look super!!!??July 2011 034
A big thank you to my Bear too who kindly helped us out by waiting tables with us today. You’re a gem gawjus girl :o)!!!!
By a complete coincidence the High Tea was just up the road from one of my favourite places to visit – Bayside Stitchcraft he he he!!! So of course I had to pop in on the way home – just to see if there was anything new on the shelves, and guess what … there was :oD!!!!!!!!July 2011 040 These super-cute scissors!! Just adorable doncha think?
So …………………
I got me a whole litter LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!July 2011 042 And that’s not all!! I found this fabulous Hot Pad pattern, isn’t it the cutest, just like a pie :o)!!July 2011 044complete with blueberry fabric for the filling (actually I think these are grapes, just don't look too closely he he) :o).
And I bought this fabulous Mug Hug too, cos you all know I love my coffee :o) … July 2011 043 I’ve been doing some stitching too …. I’m working on another ‘Doctor Bag’ (still not sure what to call it) … I’m loving these fabrics ;o) …July 2011 045Cute little owls and dragonflies.
I’ll be back soon to tell you all about some beautiful squishy mail I received.
But til then …….
