I still have a little of Friday left to join with SHAY for "Favoruite Things Friday" and if I am perfectly honest, so disgruntled have I been the last two days with my technical savvy regarding the management of this here blog I was very tempted to delete the lot and slink back into my 'old lady' cupboard. But then the thought of not communicating with all my lovely friends in blogland bought me to my senses which brings me to my 'favourite' this week. "Friends". Once you make great friends the joy they bring is immeasureable. Last week was my regular catch up with my work colleagues for coffee. In one of my very early posts I spoke about a gorgeous lady I had worked under and how she had knitted a very charming cardigan for my bear "Pickles". Jenny left us and went travelling with her husband and did all sorts of other interesting things and we hadn't seen her for a number of years. One of the girls ran into Jenny recently and relayed how we catch up for coffee and she said "Count me in I'll be there" but our very sneaky friend Deb didn't tell us she has seen her or was coming so when she appeared there was much squealing hugging and kissing and we gas bagged just like we had all been together yesterday. It was wonderful.
Just a little note.....want to know how much I really love red. I had to wear it everyday for 18 and a half years and I still love it.
I have also been doing a lot of this in the last couple of days as I have stitched my little heart out and I have finished "felt pile project" which a friend in Sydney requested and garnered from the sneaky pics that I had kept my word. So yes Pat and Vivian I have indeed worked my fingers to the bone but you will have to wait unitl October to see the finished project. I also have finished the binding on the "secret Christmas business quilt".
So that's me done for this Friday and I wish you all a great weekend. I am going to try and forget that a lot of this techno stuff is beyond me and enjoy a nice day out with DD at a cute little "cupcake" cafe she has tracked down in one of my favourite parts of town **Paddington** You see what hope do I have. Of course I could go and not have a devine cupcake......yeah right!
Blessings to you all,
