Special Friends

Yesterday my very sneaky sewing friends produced a lovely cake and some beautiful pressies for my birthday...I did not suspect a thing because my birthday was a couple of weeks ago...We all met at Laurels beautiful home outside of Beaudesert..come to think of it, I don't really know if we can still call ourselves a sewing group...more like an eating group...you know the sort - anti-weight watchers...
Laurel had made a lovely date and walnut cake for the day, mmmm..yummy.  But thats not all we had to eat...caramel bun topped with icing and almonds slices...philly sweet chilli dip and crackers...and not to mention we still ate our lunches...I suppose we did do a little sewing...I wish I had taken a photo of the day....you can catch a photo or two at our group blog if you wish - Our Kinda  Wonderful - appropriate name dont you think..
Anyhow here is a photo of my pressies..thank you girls again...I was having such a wonderful time that I forgot I had to get home for my daughter when she finished school.  So I left pretty darn fast when I realised this...but I do love my gifts and my friends..

Little Projects

Today I was very busy finishing off some little projects that I have been meaning to do...
My darling Hubby has started cutting out some timber pieces for me - I was inspired by Shabby Art Boutique - I have fallen inlove with the ribbon/lace holders so fingured I just had to make some..only one cut out so far...but I was feeling impatient as usual and decided to decorate it without waiting for the others...This is how in turned out...its 14cm high.






















My 11 year old daughter asked me to make her a card holder - for her baby sitting cards to go in.













I wanted to replace the old coasters on my bedside table so I hunted though my scrap pile and found some odd disappearing nine patch pieces...ta da...new coasters..and a couple of spares..













I have been inspired by other blogs with the little camera cases they have been making and thought - why not - they look so cute  - and so now I have one too...


















This is a little bag I made for no reason at all...just loved the fabric.....


















And last but not least....A pencil case...just to practice putting zips in - dont look too closely...That wraps me up for today...and what a productive day it has been...and ps: its nice to blog about something other than my challenge photos for a change....

Hunny Bun


















I have been working on this little bunny, trying to get her done before Easter and I think I may just have made it..It has been rather a busy week so I was starting to think that she might be ready til next Easter.
The floral blue fabric was a piece I bought at the craft show last year and I have been waiting for something special to use it on...I just love the fabric...wish I had bought more..oh well...

Tiny - My grandson's hands...

Happy Birthday To Me...

Well another milestone reached - I have come to realise that if I live to be 90 years old then I must be sitting ontop of that hill...half way through life...yes thats right...do the maths...lol
I am 45 today...and I think it is time for a nana nap...
I have had a pretty busy start to the day...first there was a visit to Buttons and Bows at Beenleigh where I bought some...wait for it...ta da...fabric...lol






















From there we - hubby and myself - went to Sewers Delight where I got - you guessed it - more fabric...I was actually looking for a certain piece of fabric but you know how easy it is to get side tracked in these stores...I also got a little case to put knick knacks into..

















Now you can work up an appetite shopping so next on the agenda was a stop at one of my favourite places - The Coffee Club...This is what I had.....yum...
When we got home this is what my 11year old had made for me...and yes there are 45 candles on the cake...may have to save this for later..bit full at the moment...but I may just fit a small slice in..lol

I was very spoilt today with more pressies too....I was given two dvd series sets...Downton Abbey and CSI series four - I have all the other CSI series but have been missing number 4 until now...woo hoo


















I have two new photos for my wall...of my beautiful daughter, son-in-law and grandson...

















And now I have to go cause my grandson is here and I want to play with him, maybe I will have a nana nap later....hope you all have had a great day too...cause I know I am having a great one..cya
