A special visitor


We were so lucky to have Narelle visit with us last Tuesday.....

Of course we had to take her on a little road trip for morning tea at Birchgrove Nursery at Mt.Tamborine.


They have a wonderful cafe there too......

OMG this Apple pie was to die for....


What a selfie.......
Leaving to go to my house for a bit of stitching and lunch.


Narelle and Teresa had been to  Tassie for the Let's Get Stitched retreat and look at these beautiful gifts Teresa brought back for each of us.


This one is my favourite.....

Thanks so much Teresa they are just wonderful.


The lovely Narelle was a guest designer for the LGS......
our surprise gift from her was the pattern and here she is signing my copy.

What a star.....


Thanks Narelle for your very thoughtful gift.....
can't wait to make this one.


Lunch ..... it was yum too.


It was such a treat to have Narelle visit with us .....
so much laughing, eating and heaps more giggling.....
Miss you already.

Friday saw our first Tuesday Girls "No Fuss Swappers" swap and we are very pleased that it went off without a hitch as well.
The theme was an Easter Mug Rug with a fat 1/4 of fabric and a small treat.

These are my fantastic gifts from Lynda..... love them.


My new mug looks great waiting to be used.


I was sending to Maria and I'm so happy that she liked what I made for her.

 Oooops not a very good photo but you get the idea.




We are organising another swap so if you are interested in joining in go here ....
join in the fun.

I have been a bit slack with my blogging so more posts to come very soon.
