Change of Photo

Today I decided to change my profile picture. 

No, I have not taken a dislike to kookaburras but another blogger uses a kookaburra for her photo. I have decided to use a photo that talks to me about my reason for blogging.  Nundle, stitchery, wine and cheese with friends.

 The photo is one Gail took when we stayed up at Mt Misery B&B.

Cowboys and Roses

Today some lovely things came into my home. 

Thanks to my stitching buddy Gail T. I received an Ella & Skysie  pattern.  They all went to Quilters Angel at Highfields for a "Stitchers Dream Day out.".... without me..... I was at the wedding.  Oh well....  Thanks Gail.

Gail also brought me this beautiful bunch or roses from her garden.  She is a very special friend.    Yes Chooky.... these are the real deal. The scent of the big red one is glorious, if you had "smellablog" that is.....LOL.....

Also my mum in law Ailsa arrived from Gordonvale ( just South of Cairns.)

            " Welcome Ailsa" 

 And Bernie bought home this awesome little pack from the Cowboys Club in Townsville.  

Guess who it is for?  It's a shame the Cowboys  didn't make it to the final. 

 Evie is officially a Cowboys member, the youngest member of the club.... her grandfather will spoil her rotten I think !

So  cute

Even a dummy

Guess who is coming to visit on Wednesday?????

Have a lovely day !

A trip to Robbie and Katrina's wedding

The Quilt is finished- I chose a heart quilt design since it was for a wedding present.

Lucky its 6 hrs  to Denman , label going on. I stitched the names as well.

On the way can't resist old huts

I just love a Cheese Factory - found this one at Muswelbrook

Sam ( the best man),  Robbie ( the groom) and Bernie( the MC)  such good friends for a long while now. We all missed our son Josh, the third musketeer. "Too far for a new born. "

Robbie and Katrina- a beautiful young couple.

Nice sculptures - theses signs say country to me

We had a lovely week end.

Getting Finished

 Sorry my blog has been a bit quiet of late just can't seem to get everything done...

Making the sewing case from Some Kind of Wonderful by Anni Downs. I had a bit of trouble with the lining .

Some Anni Downs goodies to get started on in my new sewing bag.

A handy little bag for sewing projects

I need to finish stitching the bind by this by Friday it is for  Robbie Gibbs and Katrina Smiths  wedding this weekend. Hope they like it.

I couldn't resist this cup from the Art Gallery in Brisbane.
