Some of you will have read the wonderful book "Salvation Creek" by Aussie author and one time editor of the Australian Women's Weekly, Susan Duncan. I adore this book and her other works and so does my dear friend Gaye. So when Gaye asked me if I would like to go with her yesterday to hear Susan speak and introduce her new book "Gone Fishing" I couldn't say YES!! quick enough. She is such an inspiring lady having overcome much and triumphed. You felt as if you were having a natter with one of your girlfriends and she is so no nonsense and genuine with a wonderful sense of humour. I loved listening to her.
As I have some of her books already I decided to take advantage of the special they had just for the day and bought (for half price by the way ) her beautiful coffee table book dedicated to her home on Pittwater.
Today another lovely day unfolded as I met my friend Ann at the Stitches and Craft Show and we joined my blogging friends for a cuppa and a chat. It was so nice to catch up with all the girls as it is ages since I had seen them....so hugs all around. Jane from Quiltjane took this lovely photo of us all ( I have borrowed this piccie from Sandi)
Back row L-R Lynda, Susan, yours truly and Fiona. My lovely friend Ann was off buying me a coffee...spoilt aren't I. It was so nice to spend time with my best mate from up the coast.
This photo was stolen from Teresa. I think there is going to a bit of borrowing going on. I just want to say what ever is going on....it's Fiona's fault. LOL!
I made a pact with myself that I was going to really think about my purchases today as I am trying to clean out my sewing room so didn't want to undermine my efforts. I was very pleased with my purchases...more red/creams for my red hexies. Those reds are not that bright!!!
So huge thank you to everyone for making it such a lovely day.
Blessings Michelle xxx
