Sweet Friends Make Me Smile!!

You know ... I am very much aware that I have been BLESSED with some GORGEOUS friends and blogging buddies ... it's something I appreciate so much and never take for granted! And just how blessed I am was reinforced yesterday when I came home to find a yellow envelope in my mailbox. Hmmm ... who could it be from? I turned it over ... it was from my gorgeous blogging buddy and OPAM Partner-In-Crime, Sweet Peg. What was she sending me???

What a SWEETIE!! Peg send me a 'just because' giftie to let me know she was thinking of me! (The blue spot fabric she's used for the tie matches my slippies and dressing gown! Tee! Hee! Hee!)

A phone pouch!! COOL!! Peg must have known that the phone pouch I had been using didn't have a catch on it, or a flap to close it and from time to time, my iPhone would make a wild bid for freedom and slide out ... giving my palpitations in the process! :0) I keep EVERYTHING stored on my phone ... addresses, phone numbers, diary dates, 'to do' notes, my music ... EVERYTHING!! So if something happened to it I would be TOAST! :0) AND ... she's used some of my fave fabric from French General ... how very SPOILT am I! :0)

Here's my phone, snuggling in it's new SAFE pouch, ready to pop into my bag.


What a truly GORGEOUS friend you are to me!

And speaking of friends ... my Bestest-Buddy-Since-We-Were-Nine Lynette, is due to arrive tomorrow afternoon ... AFTER my parents also arrive for their week-long visit. Busy times and no-room-at-the-inn here at the Meares' Madhouse ... unless you don't mind a matress on the lounge room floor, in which case you're welcome to join the madness!! Tee! Hee! Hee! Lynette is coming up so that she and I can enjoy a day of stitching indulgence at The Quilter's Angel annual

"Stitchers Dream Day Out"

this weekend, hosted by the lovely Marion and Steph. This will be the fourth year Lynette and I have enjoyed a day of being spoiled, fed and indulged in our stitching passion and we are SOOOOOOOO looking forward to it! :0) This year's guest designers are Libby Richardson of "Art Smart Craft Cottage", Natalie Ross from "In Stitches" and Julie Lovell from "Calico Farm Designs". It should be a FABULOUS day out cos Marion and Steph always spoil the ladies attending! I promise to report back with lots of photos ... and I promise to enjoy a cuppa for you all too ... OOOOOOOOHHH!!! I may end up sloshing when I walk and spending a LOT of time in the "ladies"! Tee! Hee! Hee! Perhaps I'll just have ONE cuppa on behalf of you all collectively! ;0)

I hope you've all had a fabulous week and that you, too, have some fun stuff planned for your weekend. Til next time ...
