An 'A', 'B', 'C' Post!


OK ... so ... I was a little longer getting back to post some photos of what I've been working on this week, but I'm finally back to share an "A", "B", "C" post. Of course, since this is ME we're talking about here, you just KNOW it's not going to happen in order, right?! Tee! Hee! Hee! So I'm going to start with the "B" part of the post.

It all began with me trundling down the hill on Friday to visit my bestest buddy Lynette. You see ... it was her "BIRTHDAY" on Thursday, so I just HAD to go help her celebrate. We decided that we would play 'LADIES' for the day and headed off to Fleet Street, for a repeat performance of the DELICIOUS High Tea we enjoyed earlier in the year. You know ... just to check that their standards were still high! :0)


Here we are, playing 'LADIES' with our FABULOUS treats and our freshly brewed tea in pretty china cups. Oops! We forgot to make sure our pinkie fingers were out! Guess we'll never really be ladies! Tee! Hee! Hee! Right at the back, behind all the yummy treats on the table, you can just see a blue and white teapot shape - that was the tea menu and there were SOOOOOOOOO many to pick from, all sounding fabulous! I decided to try the Christmas tea and it really was like drinking Christmas! Fruity with lots of cinnamon. MMMMMMMMMMMMM!! I just know it's the tea that Santa and Mrs Claus drink up at the North Pole when they're having breakfast! :0) Can't remember what Lynette had ... she changed her mind a couple of times first! Tee! Hee! Hee!


Couldn't have a "Birthday" post without a photo of the birthday girl with a 'cake'! I think this was the mini orange and poppyseed cake - just one of the YUMMO treats we enjoyed. Oh look! Lynette remembered the 'pinkies out' rule! Tee! Hee! Hee! We had a wonderful day of chatting, eating and drinking cups of tea - but then that describes MOST of the play dates that Lynette and I have! Tee! Hee! Hee!

OK ... so on to the "A" part of my post. "A" is for ...


"ANGELS"!! Aren't they cute!! These are two of five of these cute angels that I'm making to put into my Christmas box - not sure who any of them are going to yet, but thought I'd make a few and then decide where their new homes would be! :0) Another couple of finishes to add to my OPAM list and another two gifties for the Christmas list. I know the one on the right isn't' really Christmasy colours, but I thought I'd mix it up a bit - whoever receives this cutey may even like to leave her hanging all year round! Oh ... I don't think I explained that they are wall hangers. I guess you could put them on a Christmas tree, too, but I think they look pretty groovy hanging on the wall to add a Christmasy feel.

And finally ... the "C" part of my post is for ...


"COIN QUILT". This is the smaller version of the stacked coin quilt I showed you last post. The first one for my Mum has been dropped off at my super-speedy quilter extraordinaire Rosalie's place last week so she can work her machine quilting magic on it. This is the throw/lap quilt size version for my workmate Tony and his fiancee Elese when they tie the knot in early January. This time I used charm squares from my "Swanky" packs that I bought from Sarah - aren't they bright and funky!! A bit too much pink for me, but since bright colours, especially pink, yellow and blue are Elese's faves ... these charm squares seemed to fit the bill! I shall drop it off for Rosalie to again work her quilting magic on and I promise I'll show them both to you once they're quilted and bound.

So there we go me ... "B", "A", "C" post! :0) As you can see, it's been a busy week here at the Meares' Madhouse, but my sewing mojo is hanging around for a bit, so I'm making the most of it while I can! :0) I've got quite a lot of Christmas performances with our "After Five" vocal group coming up in the next few weeks, so I'm madly fitting in as much sewing now as I can.

And now ... since it's still hovering around the 30 degree mark after climbing back into the mid-30's again today, I'm off to find one of my cool beverages and rest my poor pin-pricked fingers - did I mention I'm a bit clumsy with pins when quilting?! But it's OK, cos I didn't bleed on the quilt! Tee! Hee! Hee! Hope you've all had a fabulous weekend ... although I know a few Aussie gals I 'chat' with have suffered through a scorcher - we're all praying for rain soon!! - and hope the coming week is a fun and productive one for you. Til next time ...

BEAR HUGS!

CHEERS!
