We’ve just had a wonderful visit from my lovely daughter Tahlia and her partner Luke. They were here for a wedding in Sydney and came up to Brisbane for some time with the families before they headed back to London via Cambodia. It was only a short visit this time and they left late last night *sniff* …… I’m going to miss her so much. We had a terrific time while they were here though … and we even managed a few days up at Noosa on the Sunshine Coast with the whole family … fabulous, even though it was a bit overcast sometimes :o)!!!! It was also super special timing as I got to celebrate my birthday with ALL of my children – that’s two years in a row :o)!!!
Speaking of birthdays …. thanks to everyone for your lovely birthday wishes – it was a great day made even more special by the thoughtfulness of my dear blogging and facebook friends :o) – I feel truly blessed to have met such lovely people in blogland, and I’m constantly amazed by their generosity too - Thank you SO much Vicki, Maree and Fee too … you made my day :o)!! Look at the lovely gifties they sent …
Vicki and Maree … I’m well aware that there are some licorice allsorts missing from the piccies of your gifties!!! And that’s all I’m sayin’ he he he)
So what’s the exciting new toy you ask???
This …………… !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My “Accuquilt GO! Baby” is here …. woohoo!!! I can’t wait to show you what I’ve been making. What fun!!! And SO easy to use too :o). Here’s a little hint of what I’ve been up to with it … In my next post I’ll show you how easy it is to make a cute little table mat :o).
Well I’d better be off and do some stitching … what with the dreaded lurgy (gone now thank goodness), my birthday, and Tahlia and Luke’s visit I’ve hardly picked up a needle for waaaaay too long.
HOPE on a flour sack and in my heart...
