Lovely Morning Catchup

Even the incompetence of one of our telecommunication provider could spoil the lovely day I had today.
Firstly I have to say I only went to get backing fabric on the way to my coffee date but these fabrics followed me home.....didn't even know they were there until I found them on the back seat of my car.
Don't you just love raspberry red!!!!
I then headed off to meet my lovely friend Noela from Quilty bits from the blue room. A lot of you will have visited her lovely blog. Noela and I spent 3 years together at college playing in clay and glazes. Lost touch and then met again at a Bloggers meet here in Brisbane. We had lots to chat about and share including a little show and tell. No photos as the Coffee club is not conducive to flinging quilts about although I did try.
We did indulge in a 'tiny' little citrus tart. We then conned the waitress into taking this photo so she could have the table as we had chatted for absolutely ages. We had the nicest time and had a huge giggle over a photo I found from those days and NO we won't be sharing it. LOL! All I can tell you is that I was half the woman I am now and the jumper I was wearing reinforced my belief that giving up knitting was a smart move on my part. Thanks so much Noela....gotta do it again soon.
I hope you have spent the day doing something you enjoyed too.
Blessings Michelle xxx

  8. Thank you Michelle. I loved catching up with you again and that photo, well I'm glad you didn't show it, me with my crop of curly permed hair and that Disney sweat shirt,what was I thinking, a bit embarrassing, was that almost 30 years ago, maybe that will be my excuse. Such a fun day. Hugs....

  9. I am sure for the time and place your photo was just fine. But when we look back at that era it is a good idea to not share photo. So pleased you had a good coffee catchup. Sounds like a lot of fun.
    Amazing how that fabric turned up in the back seat of your car. You have to wonder dont you.

  15. Sounds like the lunches I have with my friend, Rene....we tell the waitress to put us in a back corner somewhere because we're going to be there a while. Then we manage to stay until almost time to lock the door at 2:30.
    How nice for you to catch up with your room mate after all these years.
    Blessings,
