Day Trip

You would think after 40 years of going on (long) day trips I would not trust my other half when he says "fancy a drive to Coff's Harbour" but no off we went...Jackson Browne in the cd player, grooving away. You see apart from his family and friends, sport and Holdens Gary's other big love is music and when the opportunity came to get his little mits on a pair of speakers he had hankered after since his youth he leapt at it.....trouble was they were in yep! Coff's Harbour. I thought we might get to stay the night and have a little look around but no he wanted to come straight home and play with them so all I got to see of the place was lunch here....
and some pretty pansies smiled at me while I was getting back in the car to come home.
I am therefore today retiring to my chair (while the installation of  'those' speakers takes place) with a bit of stitching and drooling over my new fabrics that I bought. I have been dancing around the Moda 3 sisters range Sentiments for ages and started out by buying a charm pack thinking that would ease the craving.
Well didn't work and  just made the hankering worse so I gave in an bought a few pieces.....
Oooohhh! it is just so yummy and gorgeous and so gloriously red. I have no idea what it will be for but I am loving just looking at it and ok yes stroking it....I admit it. I know you all do it too!! At least the husband being home curtailed the running through the house with the pieces streaming out behind me and doing the happy dance.
Ok Coffee Time and I shall be visiting your blogs from my chair.
Oh by the way 'the wonder speakers' do sound awesome (but don't tell him I told you)
Have a simply wonderful day and as Gary has proved it is never ever too late for a little dream or two to come true.
Blessings Michelle xxx

  2. Pity you didn't get to spend some time in Coffs harbour - but then you have justified a day of sewing. Enjoy it.
