Quilting at Anne's

Our quilting group met today at Anne's and even though the 'Westerley Winds' chased us inside a lovely time was had by all. Anne has been off travelling on the Ghan and up through the Alice, Kakadu and on to Darwin so it was great to catch up. Gaye was wearing her neat ruffly (not sure if that's a word) scarf that she was knitting when we saw her last stitching's really cool you knit it with only 5 stitches and that's all I know because even that's too hard for me, but apparently you knitters out there think it's a breeze. I'll just take your word for it...anyway it looked lovely. Lovely homemade goodies for morning tea as well. Usually I am sticking my camera in the girls faces but this time as Anne's sister Juliet visited I was able to be in the piccie. (thanks Juliet) I am hanging on to friend Jackie to coerce her into being in this photo as she hates having her photo taken. Still had 3 girls missing one day I'll get us altogether.

My beautiful camelia from Denise's garden.
Denise also gave me an early Birthday present and with it this beautiful camelia from her garden. I love having friends who can grow beautiful flowers and who did get the 'cooking gene'.

  4. Hi Michelle I love your posts with your 'buddies' pics. I miss my friends since we moved. What a lovely birthday present. Such a pretty colour. I must admit I was more than a little distracted though by that spectacular plate behind the camellia. Oh, I'm glad your headache is better, nothing worse than those 'whoppers'.
