Sunday Stitcher's

The Sunday Stitcher's met at the new venue at Coomera last Sunday.  Our lovely leader, Maree  took this photo of us (thank you Maree for letting me steal this photo)..
Here are some of the show and tell we had during the day..
Jeanette with her gorgeous quilt...
Alison with her beautiful quilt.
Susan with her lovely quilt..
Maree with her gorgeous quilt.
We also had a special birthday girl this month, Maureen, and she is just about to open her pressies in this photo..Happy Birthday...
I did have a photo of the tasty treats that were on offer during the day but somehow I lost it when loading them up - probably just as well cause it was a bit embarrassing how full my plate was...
Anyhow short and sweet today...
I have been doing a little sewing lately but most of it is for swaps so I cant show you anything..maybe in my next post...

R.I.P Chrissy 1956-2015

It is with such sadness that I am writing this posting  today.  My darling sweet friend, Chrissy, passed away last night.  We were given the news last week that she would, if lucky, last the week out.  I have spent almost every day with her and her family since that devastating news.  Her house has been full with her three sisters and three brothers flying down from North Queensland to be with her during her last days.  Chrissy told me on many occasions that it was her family and friends being around, noisily chatting among themselves and fussing over her that has kept her going.  I can believe this as there was sooo much love in her house during her last week that you could feel it in every nook and cranny of her house.  I know she passed away feeling the love everyone has for her, she was a special person and friend.  I am truly going to miss her heaps, I have lost someone I hold dear in my heart and will treasure all my memories I have from us knowing each other. 
I have been so blessed to have known you, Lynne and my future shopping expeditions are just never gonna be the same...

This photo was taken of  Lynne, Me and Chrissy in 2010..
