Top friends, top times, top week.

Last week started out just like any other..... Tuesday is always the best day as I spend it with my crafty friends and as usual it was fun and laughter, we were very good girls making our christmas project from the book "Tis the Season" by Natalie Bird.. ..... Christmas Joy Scrapbook Album, it was great to do together, we are all members of the "Stitch-a-long" group.



Teresa and Tereasa being very quiet which is something very unusual hehehehe
                                          and I'm even being quiet.
Silliness is never very far away for us though, we are taking piccies of us taking piccies..... will we ever grow up.... nah I don't wanna......
Tereasa proudly showing her album, this is a first for her and isn't she a clever clogggggs.
                                                       Looking pretty good I think.
On wednesday my long time friend Jenny from Bundaberg came for a visit so of course that meant more laughing and crafting, here she is feeling right at home with our little dog "Pippa"


Cuppa.... cake and lots more laughing as Jenny joined us on Thursday for another craft day, Jenny knows all the girls well so more fun was to be had.

Sorry Teresa but I think this piccie is very cute, no she's not making a hat its a bag, it was just a silly moment. I'm not sure what happened but I haven't got a photo of the bag but if you pop over to Teresa's blog there are lots more photos of our fun day with Jenny.




On Friday Jenny and I took a craft shop tour starting with "Faeries in My Garden" then on to "Shabby Streak" after that the  "Patchwork Tree" and finally "Thread and Ginger"  and of course we had a very nice lunch and a coffee break, all that shopping makes us girls very tired, it really was a great day but I can't show my purchases yet as I haven't taken any piccies of them so maybe later.

I was a lucky girl though as Jenny bought this great fellow from the Shabby Streak shop and gave him to me as a thank you for having her stay with us..... isn't he terrific..... the lady at the shop was laughing as he is called "Stupid" and it gives me a giggle every time I look at him so the name will stick.



Heres another silly moment at my home with Jenny.... she has a photo of me doing the same thing so hopefully I can get one from her to show you.... this is going to be a teapot cosy .....
We had a great sewing day together making one of our "Gift of the Month" projects from "Faeries in My Garden" a lovely little set pot holder, teapot cosy and toaster cover.
 

This  is my "Tis the Season" scrapbook album and I'm very happy with the final results, all I need to do is find the photos to put in it.




 
 
My "Breast of Friends" quilt has been sitting in the cupboard waiting for me to show some interest in getting on with more blocks, I've only done 2 and this one makes 3 so lots more progress needed.

It was a busy week but heaps of fun......
