Awesome Catchup


How lucky am i that i got to catch up with my buddies Barb and her sister Anne,oops not the best selfie.
We decided to meet at Gail's Patchwork shop and we were lucky that she was having a 20% off sale for the month of December.


Omg there was so many beautiful things to see.


Anne felt the need for a new hat,lol.
And i think i caught Barb getting into some mischief,lol.


I just love looking in this shop,lots of bling and pretty things.


I really loved this reindeer trim ,so many beautiful xmas things.


 This was one of Gails trees decorated for xmas.


Oh these polar bears were adorable,love them,we spent about an 1 hr and 1/2 shopping and chatting and laughing with  Gail and Melissa.


Then i showed the girls the way to Such'n'Such for lunch and a well earned cuppa.
Lol our lunch lasted for 3 1/2 hrs,i have missed these girls so much and was awesome to catchup and have a few laughs and to hear about their trip to America.


 This was the xmas tree in at Such'n'Such.


And i might've been a tad spoilt by the girls,lol,and the pic of the 2 bags are goodies that the girls bought me back from America,thankyou Barb and Anne for the best day,it was so good to give you girls a hug and to spend the day with you both,i look forward to our next catchup.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

Finishes for Nov and a New Start


I surprised myself with these finishes for the month of November,5 all up,it has been a god send being able to do craft while i am healing,otherwise i think i would've gone crazy just sitting in the recliner day after day,lol.


Another gorgeous friend sent me this parcel to keep me busy,thankyou so much Ondrea,i am so blessed with my friends,and i appreciate every one of you.


Hubby picked our first vase full of flowers for inside,love the colours and they smell so nice,i could sit there sniffing them all day,lol.


I have gone back to doing some more on the reindeer,i had the legs and arms sewn before my accident,so a couple of days ago i stuffed them and now they are ready for painting.


Lol they look like ice cream cones,hope to sew the body up tomorrow.

My friend Cathy is picking me up for craft today,it will be great to get out of the house and not have to worry about wheelchairs,lol.,i am so looking forward to catching up with the girls and Joy is back from Saudi Arabia ,yipee.

Hope your day is a good one.
