Great fun visiting Jenny.....

We had the best day visiting my long time friend Jenny......
Jen was on retreat at Glenrose Patchwork,  Warwick.......




Yes Sandi was with us.....but somehow no photos of her......ooooops
Of course we did the usual things....
eat....laugh.....shop and heaps more laughing.....
Jenny showed us her wonderful quilt top, she is so proud of herself as it is all needle turned and is not something she likes to do but after all that work is now much happier doing that technique.....
well done Jen.....


We all joined a Mini Quilt BOM at Glenrose Patchwork, so looking forward to doing these in the coming months with the girls.....


My first one is underway as I write this post......


Coffee was our first stop to have a chat and catchup on all the gossip....
No photo as I only had a pot of tea so wayyyy toooooo boring......
Then off  for lunch at the Warwick Garden Centre.....
All the retreat ladies jouned us for lunch and guess who forgot to take a photo ????


Who is this little possum I see through the beautiful gift display there.....



We took Jen back to Glenrose....
 as we did need to check if we wanted anything else there......
Being a Tuesday we should have been stitching our Flower Garden hexies so I  did mine a few days early.....


After a great day we said our goodbyes and headed off home......

So toodles once again.......

Slack blogging again !!!!!!!!

I don't know what happens to me sometimes.......
Time just seems to get away without me noticing.......
So this will be a catchup post.....
Our Tuesday goodies....


and stitching......


Then during the week I finally finished the last circle for Windchime BOM....
now to put the blocks together......


Friday
We decided to take a lovely drive and go to Boonah for lunch .....but......
firstly we had an issue with the house pump, took a while to sort out but we got there eventually.....
Not to be put off by that we headed out for the day.....but.....
about 10 mins from home this happened.....


While talking to roadside service a lovely young man stopped and said it would be quicker if he changed the tyre for us so change it he did....
Gavan said he was over the day out so we turned to head home stopping at the local tyre fix it shop but then thought we needed a yummie treat to cheer us up....


So we might try to go to Boonah another day......

Toodles.......

A lovely day out.....

I was out and about today with Heather and Gavan......
Heather had an early appointment at her Solicitors and there was a planned power outage in our area so we decided to have a day out......

So off the to Mt. Gravatt lookout for a leisurely morning tea......
The weather was amazing......







It was just beautiful there.....
so we were then off to have lunch at Southport.....


Pelican feeding......



and person feeding.....
Why is it that fish and chips always taste better near the waters edge ?
Mind you the Sea gulls were a bit of a problem......


It was a perfect day.....  
The power should be back on by the time we arrive home.....
