A Week Plus One!

That is how long since I have Posted and a lot has happened in those days - mostly all good! There has been little time for blogging and browsing and that's sad, lol! There's been absolutely no sewing - now what could be sadder?

Hi Caryn of Pieceful Chaos, New Jersey, USA! Your SSCS gifts arrived safely a few days ago and I have left it until a peaceful Sunday morning to open the package - I am so thrilled and really don't want to wait until the 25th, but will - I have a feeling I will love the gifts! Our gorgeous Chookyblue .... so much love and thanks to you, too!

Yesterday was Heidi's day - her ballet recital! We are all so proud of her - her tutu has been shed and I have no pics of her dancing as photography was not allowed! There will be more to come, I hope!

Last Friday I had the good fortune to be welcomed to the Contemporary Group, part of our state guild's organization, WAQA. It was a truly enjoyable day, very enlightening, a lovely venue , the best part was the wonderful hospitality shown by all the girls!

Next Tuesday is a very special day for me - our Christmas gathering with Girlfriends! Ooooh, it is so exciting - we will get to catch up with Jan of Gallivantour and also Shari of Mumsyblossom's World!
I am a very happy girl today, I know life in general has hills and valleys for us all - today I feel truly blessed!

Hi Lurline! Not much blogging or sewing for most of us as we whirl around in the end of year activities. Lovely Heidi. What's the world coming to when you can't photograph your own family in public! Of course I understand why, but it is a shame...

You will do quite well in the contemporary group... you're a bit of a rogue anyway! I look forward to hearing all about it on Tuesday. I'm bringing the champagne!

Hugs - Shari

Good to hear from you. I think the holidays are keeping a lot of us from blogging and sewing. I've made a bunch of your dilly bags. They are so fun.
