Busy Day




What a busy day I had. Actually the past 3 weeks have been so busy I will be glad when this week is over and I can relax.

Lunch again at my favourite place. Bromelaid Cafe Gardens Glenview.

This time I had a lovely time with Nat. She loved the place and I hope we meet there again soon. I remembered to take a pic with food this time. A lovely cheese cake with a biscuit base.

I also made a little container to keep my mobile phone in. I needed this in a hurry and I am pleased with the way it turned out. I used felt for the lining.

Until next time.

Greek Afternoon





We had a lovely lunch at our Greek friends. Lovely food and company. I forgot to take pictures of the food. I will have to start to remember to do this.
Even our dog enjoyed the day.

Stitch and Bitches

Smileycons!


Well here we are at my favourite restaurant again. Bromelaid Cafe at Glenview

It has been nice to catch up with friends and what a nice venue. All the groups have been so impressed with this cafe. It was a stinking hot day but sitting out under the gazebo there was a lovely breeze blowing and we were so comfortable. As you can see. Here we moved onto the grass for pictures but decided to stay there till after 3.00pm. My husband can not understand we see each other every week and then have to spend 5 hours having lunch. I told him it was secret women's business.

I have a new camera and I did not realize I have to put in the memory card so I was only able to take a few pictures and of course I had it on high res.

Will post some more tomorrow and yes off to the cafe again this time for breakfast. I will try and remember to take some of the food.

This is the quilt I finily finished.

I made some of these little treasures again. I love them.
This quilt has been a UFO for so long I can't remember. It was a free monthly online. I will see if I can remember or find who's it was and post.
I was so disappointed as the final boarder stretched. I have never had that happen to a quilt before. I will wet it one day and pin it out and see if I can stretch it into shape.
Got to go husband needs to be feed.
Keep stitching.

Dinner at neighbours


We had a lovely dinner at a neighbours place last night. His mother was up from Canberra. The night before we had them over. We had a bit to much wine. All fun and we are laughting about the headaches now. Both night were wonderful for her.

Another friend and his family were also there along with his wife's mother. It was so nice to see the older people fitting in so well and enjoying their self.

Well it is the party season and it is such a shame we leave it all to December to catch up when we could be doing it all year long.
Till next time
Keep stitching (I am just not finished enough to post)

Wonderful day with Scquilters

Here we are a happy group of Scquilters at the Bromelaid Cafe Glenview.
Andrea Delia (Del) Sharron Lorraine Bernadine
Andre's 5 year old grandson took this picture. Didn't he do a great job.

The quilt that I worked on yesterday. It is a Christmas table cloth for our daughter and family. It is a disappearing 9 patch. I love this quilt it goes together so fast and can be made so many different ways. I backed and quilted the quilt but used no wadding.
Bernadine is helping me hold the quilt up as Andrea took the picture.
Until next time keep stitching
