A Diamond Day

Sometimes we are very fortunate to have one of those 'special days'. Yesterday was such a day. In a favourite place with favourite people. I travelled up the range with my lovely friend Teresa to Highfields to visit gorgeous Fiona.
Don't they look happy amongst all that gorgeousness at the Quilter's Angel.
We had a lovely play in here. (Don't you love Fiona's bag that clever Marina made her. Tried to work our how to sneak it into my bag but Fiona wouldn't give it up) A couple of my purchases....
I said a much ya buy on the mountain remains a secret.
I was also spoilt rotten by beautiful gifts from Teresa and Fiona. Very naughty but oh so nice.
My fingers have flicked that gorgeous charm pack a dozen or more times already. As we each have one of those fantastic mugs, it will be so nice to know we are all sipping our favourite brews from them....whilst blogging of course. LOL. Aren't you impressed that the chocolate is still intact.
Fiona showed us some of the other lovely sites and we had a yummy lunch at the Danish Flower Farm where I am afraid to say Teresa and I ran amok....check out lunch. We also had the company of the most gorgeous silky bantam chookie while we ate.
Loved every moment of our day....even being stuck in the road works on the range coming home didn't dampen our spirits. Teresa and I just did what we do best....chatted and laughed.
Thank you Fiona for being our wonderful genereous hostess and Teresa for being such great company on our journey.
NOW! Sewing! Well as I am still deliberating my next project (snowmen vs bears on holidays???)I thought I might do a little catch up so I have been doing a little stitching on my Christmas redwork blocks that "Miss Mistletoe" threw out of my basket with relish last year and hence they never made it to being an actual quilt.
I am enjoying them and I was surprised to discover I had done more of them than I thought...3 more to go.
That is about it from me. I am off to package up some more of my "Christmas Memories" BOM  as I am very excited to say I sold some at AQC....thank you lovely people. Don't forget you can still get yours at the
"Patchwork Teahouse"

Lastly to all our Service Men and Women both past and present I would like to say Thank You!
Blessings Michelle xxx
