Happy Friday ... Sort Of!!

Hello to all you lovelies out there in blogland! Just popping in for a quick visit (I promise it will be quick, Chookyblue!!) to wish you all a happy Friday. The "Sort Of" part is for me cos I have another dentist appointment this afternoon - EEK!! Really over uncooperative teeth at the moment. SIGH!!

Still ... some good stuff happening too. Yesterday was a show holiday for Toowoomba and although where I work, we take the show holiday from Crow's Nest, cos it's a Friday and we USED to be in that Council shire until the horrible amalgamation took place (GRRRR!! Don't get me started!!) and works out better all round ... my Beloved Geek Boy had yesterday off. So ... when I finished work, we went adventuring on a couple of mini road trips to pick up a couple of Gumtree buys for my sewing room ... some reorganisation and painting happening in there ... SOON, I hope ... so will share more later. I know ... what a tease I am! :0) We scored a couple of bargains and the road tripping part was fun ... especially since it turned out that the pick-up point for one of my finds was a lovely lady in a little country town nearby who has turned her shed into a mini antiques/collectibles/bric-a-brac shop that is open by appointment ... I will SO be going back here and taking my Bestest-Buddy-Since-We-Were-Nine Lynette when she visits next! :0)

I also took a quick pic of my finishes for March ... some more little needle keeps ...

Five more of these little cuties finished, bringing my tally to 7 ... only 13 to go! :0) They'll be popped into my gifties box. I love how all the different fabric and button combinations are looking.

And speaking of gifties ... sort of! :0) ... Sweet Peg has drawn the OPAM winner for March, so if you haven't caught up with the news yet, pop over to visit her to see if YOU were the lucky winner. Funnily enough ... when Sweet Peg did her random draw, MY name came up! So she re-drew it ... and HER name came up! Tee! Hee! Hee! Obviously the random generator thinks we're both winners! Tee! Hee! Hee!

Right ... it's off to tackle a couple of jobs before I pull up my big girl panties and head off to the dentist ... hopefully getting that out of the way today will make for a more relaxed ... and tooth-pain-free!! ... weekend with some gardening and sewing thrown in ... and taking a photo of the quilt I've been teasing you with that I sewed the binding down on. Hmmm ... not sure that's the goodest English usage, but you get what I mean! :0) Have a fab weekend! Til next time ...

BEAR HUGS!

CHEERS!
