Friends

Another lovely day on Saturday spent with friends at Mill Rose in Ballan - always lots of talking, a little stitching and some shopping -
See what I mean about lots of talking lol.
I didn't participate in the swap this time. Not a lot of time to sew with moving house. These were the gorgeous placemats Barb received (made by very talented Kim).
Shez received lots of gorgeous goodies from Lyn.
And of course I had to buy some goodies. I did try to stick to what I needed for current projects I am working on, BUT the gorgeous xmas fabric and xmas wallhanging pattern "Deck the Halls" just begged me to buy them - I know it's only February.

Now my lovely friend Shez picked me up and boy did she have the most wonderful surprise for me. I was a lucky winner on her blog of one of her "random acts of kindness" - so lovely and generous of her.  This was my gorgeous gift -
A wonderful basket full of homemade goodies.
Yummy homemade biscuits.  The banana choc chip ones are looking a bit light on here.  They were delicious.
As well there was lovely jams, pickles, chutney and homegrown beetroot and a lovely bottle of Moscato.  I'll have to be hiding these - they are hubbies favorites.  Shez I loved my most gorgeous yummy gifts - thankyou so much for spoiling me.
