I spent the day with Deb last Thursday, my 2 girls arrived home from Perth and Wellington for Christmas, and needed picking up from Christchurch airport. Guess who lives there and I had just had to visit. Deb and I traipsed around some of the Christchurch quilt shops that I hadn't been too,
the 3 shops that we went to were all very different, (the one above is Primroses), we visited Cottonfields and Memories also - stopping for coffee and a scone at Memories which is a fabulous shop with a small cafe as well lovely fabrics & everything you might need to make a bag.. Deb was very friendly and on personal terms with them all, so she obviously visits them often! We went out to dinner at a fabulous restaurant, joined by Darlene and husband as well. The meal was just to die for!!
Deb asked me to put this photo up 'cos she forgot to pull her camera out! Aren't we just the morning glams in our jimjams!
So Fi was the first to arrive on Friday morning, and we spent the day in Christchurch finishing off the Christmas shopping, all done now! Janet arrived later in the afternoon, and then it was the drive back to Twizel
We got back about half 6/7pmish, and no one felt like cooking so we headed off to our favourite local (any excuse to go there), where we all decided to try to a cocktail while we were waiting on our pizza,
Yesterday the girls relaxed in the hot tub, yep Janet is on the phone!!
this parcel arrived while I was away - this is my SSCS from my swap partner Lynda, the lovely koala bear stitchery is already on my tree, and the parcels sitting underneath, teasing me.. how hard is it to wait for Christmas Day! Thank you so much indeed Lynda! and a very BIG thank you to Chookyblue for organising this wonderful swap!
... and this is the latest stitchery that I am working on, this is a Bronwyn Hayes (Red Brolly) design, "My Little Teahouse". It is the cutest most adorable little carryall for needlework necessities. I simply cannot wait to finish it, but there is lots of other stuff to do too!
Have a an absolutely fun week every one.... only 5 sleeps to go!!!
