Road Trip

Yesterday I set off up to our beautiful Sunshine Coast with friends to visit our dear friend Jan who was having a holiday there at her families home. It is a beautiful home. She invited us for a stitching day by the sea.
How is this for a view to stitch by. ..
It was a wonderful enjoying our Queensland winter sunshine and taking in that view.
We were able to catch up with friends who now live there Robyn M. and my best mate Ann. We got creative with photography lol! Panoramic photo...
Loved this huge canvas piece in the dining room.....so peaceful and calming to look at.
And hows this for a stitching chair...just had to have a turn! Oooh so comfortable. I could also imagine reading and snoozing here quite easily!
Unfortunately it wouldn't fit in the car! I took my hexies but didn't do a stitch! They sat waiting patiently on the table but never came out of their box! I am blaming the company and the view! The only sewing to show is this gorgeous pouch stitched by my friend Diane for me....an early birthday gift (everyone, including me thought I was going away) Also a gorgeous soft pashmina! Beautiful! I  just love them xx
I was allowed to open it right away..... Diane is a beautiful stitcher....we have her hooked on hexies now...I did warn her it was a downhill spiral lol!
The icing on the cake apart from our delicious lunch...thanks Jan....was spending time with my best friend Ann. Who I don’t get to see as often as I woukd like!

So in a nutshell our day consisted of dear friends, lovely hostess, fab view, delicious food, wonderful chauffeur and loads of fun and laughter......how blessed were we.
Enjoy your weekend.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
