The Long Way Home & FNWF

Yesterday I travelled to the Sunshine Coast, Caloundra to be exact with two of my friends to give our love and support to our friend who was saying goodbye to her dear Husband.
Afterwards we had lunch at one of the clubs over looking this lovely view.
I had local crumbed whiting with salad and chips....yum! Queensland as I discovered on holidays does the best fish and chips. After lunch being a bunch of quilters (can't you sniff out a quilt shop within a 50 km radius too) we decided to go the long way around home....and headed north towards Marcoola. Thankfully we had Monica on board (little techno whizz) and a GPS and we stumbled upon our destination after a scenic drive through the airport...so funny. Still don't know how we got there. lol. But we arrived at this little gem.
We had a lovely time....Monica and Diane deciding on a purchase. There were so many gorgeous things to choose from.
If you are a Lynette Anderson fan you will adore her little store. I bought some lovely background fabric, some more red and creams for my hexies and a couple of giftie things too.
We were delighted with our purchases.
The lovely girl who assisted us with our purchases was kind enough to take our photo.
We weren't too late getting home but I was a bit weary so not a lot of stitching took place. It took me ages to actually decide on what I was going to work on. I did however get all these little items cut out ready to stitch...
and these...
I only had a little bit to go on this little stitchery so I was pretty confident of finishing it...
Unfortunately my eyes slammed shut and it was....Goodnight Sweetheart!!!
Thank you Cheryll for once again being our lovely hostess.
I am looking forward to popping over to visit all the other Friday Nighters and see what you all got up too.
Enjoy your weekend and don't forget to let those you love know they reside cherished in your heart.

Blessings Michelle xxx

  13. Oh Michelle, what a lovely way to spend a day with friends on such an occasion.....I'm sure the distraction did wonders. It's never easy. I don't know what happened but I forgot all about FNWF this month...I think awaiting visitors and a trip to the stitching and craft fair that day took over!
