Happy Birthday, Louise!

What a fun afternoon! A great time shared with Girlfriends! overlooking the beautiful city of Perth. A perfect afternoon and we all behaved like ladies at the revolving C Restaurant, celebrating Louise's birthday while enjoying High Tea! Here's the Girl of the Day showing her new quilt - quickly put together by Barb and I on behalf of all The Girls! What a birthday to remember!


Gorgeous girl - I think I can say for sure what a thrill the whole day was for all of us!


Here we are toasting with bubbly, just a little as most of us were drivers - thanks, Barb and thank you too for organizing! There's me, second from the right!

The Swan River on a sunny Friday afternoon in Perth!

Yummy fabrics! I must put my beautiful new Janome to use this weekend - it has been such a busy week with Ed coming home - oh, thanks goodness and let's hope we have turned a nice big corner!

Can you see the horses on this fabric - how cute! I bought in both colours, don't know what for, but I really do adore! Happy weekend!
