Weekend fun ....

Last Thursday Helen came down for
a few days,
We ate, drank, shopped & stitched...

Thursday was just a relaxing afternoon
catching up with each other ..
Friday after dropping the kids at school,
we headed to the local embroidery guild exhibition.
It was small, but quite a few displays
that were nice.
We both picked up this christmas ornament.
I'm thinking of putting candy canes in it
then off to
Paritz Cafe for morning tea..
iced coffee & this Brest
it was HUGE ..Helens iphone is beside it
for size..

Then to the quilt shop ..
and we scored bargains..
we cant quilt , so we buy ..

Helen picked this one

I picked up this Christmas  one for my wall.
Just need to get some dowl to hang it.
Then out to lunch, spotlight, school pick up
then back home for tea..and a drink..
 Saturday we started with French toast for breakfast
we then stitched all day,
roast pork..heaps of crackling and vegies for dinner.
then we watched Muriels wedding..
such  a great Aussie movie..

Sunday our last day of stitching
this is what I was doing..
LHN Baked Goods ornament.
This is such an appropriate ornanament
for me ...
love, love, love Christmas
( already have brought decorations.. )
and baking ..

Back to normal now  :-(
next time think we need a week, it just goes too quick.
