Preparations & Play Dates!

Hello to all my Bloggy Buddies out there in blogland! I hope you're having a great weekend. I have to confess to having a bit of a "Sunday Slug" day today ... It's overcast, cool & showery, so after an in-laws drop-in visit my Beloved Geek Boy & I are curled up with books ... Well ... iPad kindles. 😜 It's a nice balance to the busyness & deadlines we've had over the past couple of weeks.

Part of my busyness & deadlines has been preparation for the upcoming Girls' Stitch In hosted by Marion & Steph of The Quilters Angel on March 14 & 15. I've now handed over my project to these lovely ladies, along with the pattern instructions ... YAY! I can't wait to share my projects with everyone who comes to play in a few weeks' time! There are a few little preparations yet to finish for some mini demonstrations, but I'm giving myself today to be a slug before tackling the new week. 😉

I've also managed to fit in a play date this week with my Bestest-Buddy-Since-We-Were-Nine Lynette. I toodled down the 'hill' so we could go hunting for pretty collectibles & enjoy a tasty lunch ...


Lynette had Vietnamese pork lettuce cup thingies that I can't remember the name of 😜 ...


... & I had koftas & a berry frappe ... YUMMO! And the best part about lunch was that it was tasty but light ... Which meant we had room for ...


CUPCAKES! We discovered Sweethearts Cupcakes at Paddington, handily situated between the antique shop we were visiting & where we parked the car. We figured walking up the STEEP Paddo hill meant we'd earned a sweetie-treatie! 😜


MMMMMMMMMMM! Butterscotch White choc macadamia cupcake with a mug of French Earl Grey tea. Lynette had a gluten free passion fruit custard cupcake ... But she ate it before I could take a pic! Tee! Hee! Hee! I'd recommend a visit to this pretty shabby chic sweetie shop if you're in Brisbane. I reckon it would be dangerous to live/work too close, though ... Too tempting! 😝

So what have you been up to? Whatever you've been doing, I hope you're enjoying it. Just a few days to go before we run out of month again, OPAMers. I'll actually have some finishes to record this month ... WOO! HOO! In the meantime, I think the kettle is playing my song, so I'm diving back into my book ... "The Collector" by Nora Roberts, my fave author. What a shame we have to go back to being grown ups tomorrow! 😝 Til next time ...

BEAR HUGS!

CHEERS!

I think you definitely have deserved a 'day off' Kris - it looks like you enjoyed it.

Looking forward to joining you for the 'Girls Stitch in' in a few weeks, and seeing what wonderful projects you have for us. I will finally be able to put a face to your great blog.


Also met up with Natalie Bird of The Birdhouse at the Australasian Embroidery Convention in Brisbane on Friday.
