A Little Road Trip

Yesterday I took my lovely Kiwi friend Raewyn who is over here on holiday from Love to Stitch up the mountain to Highfields outside Toowoomba for a visit with Fiona from BubzRugz.
After a very nice coffee reviver and get to know you chats we had a delightful wander around The Quilter's Angel. We had a special little tour to see where Fiona has those special cakes and stitching on some Friday nights.

The fire was going and we were surrounded by all manner of gorgeousness....such a lovely place. I had bought a list and was very chuffed to have crossed everything off....can't show you though...sorry! However just when I thought I was home and free, you know...thinking of others and all that... some beautiful Christmas themed French General fatties fell into my bag.....restrained is what I was!!! Only 2! Why oh why do they keep bringing out more gorgeous fabric??? I cannot resist!
Murmurs of "I don't need anything and I am just looking" were soon forgot by all three once inside.
Fiona then took us down the highway a little to the Danish Flower Shop for a very nice relaxed lunch with Kris from Tag-a-long Teddies. Most of you will know Kris from OPAM. Kris is such a fun date and much fun and laughter took place....and all manner of other naughtiness!
We were visited by this very handsome gentleman. He came to see what all the ruckus was about.
We were also visited by several beautiful fairy wrens pursuing a very pretty girlfriend...alas they were too quick for my old camera....I have borrowed a piccie from google for those of you were don't know what they are...my overseas friends I mean. They are so tiny and I just love watching them.
We sat in the warm sunshine to have our lunch and there were even some lovely roses out in bloom.
A lovely, lovely day.....just what I needed. Such great company too. Thank you girls.

Turn away footy haters now!!! I just had to say....
Our mighty Maroons defeated NSW on Wednesday night by a small margin hehehe!
Just for posterity mind!
Pleased as punch in our household!
I wish you all a lovely weekend,
Namaste and Blessings,
Michelle xxx

  13. What a Wonderful day Michele. Full of laughter and friendship I am sure. It is great that our friend Raewyn was able to fit in a catch up with you. I have been to the Quilters Angel and I know Raewyn would have loved the shop as much as I did.
