Saturday Spent With Bloggy Friends...

Aren't bloggy friends so great?!
Especially when you get to spend time with them, like I have with 5 other lovely ladies...

My Saturday was spent with Julia, Maria, Tracee, Bev & Sandra... in the comfort of Sandra's beautifully cool home in this WA heatwave... What a tonic... lots of talking & laughing... So great to spend some quality hours with a few friends... learn a little more about each other... share some Show & Tell...
 Julia is showing us her beautiful quilt - wow what a gorgeous work of her hands!

Below is a cross stitch that Bev had just collected from the framers on the way to our GTG...
The wording at the top is "à chaque jour suffit sa peine"... we were speculating as to what those words translate to... so I did some investigating & found out that in English it's "each day as it comes"...
 A lovely lunch complete with 'afters' was enjoyed, & of course plenty of cuppas, plus water to stop our throats from getting dry with all the talking & laughing!
Hey girls, did you notice that the bikkies on the Christmas themed plate were a bit dry & tasteless? When I got home & was unpacking, I was thinking they tasted odd... then I realised I had forgotten to put the brown sugar in the mix... darn... how embarrassing!

After the super-busy fortnight I've had, this was just the day I needed... thanks girls for such a great day...
And thanks again Sandra for having us...

What a great day. I laughed when you said about your biscuits. Everyone must have been so polite. Maybe they thought they were health cookies.

A day with stitching friends really recharges the batteries. Sounds like you had lots of fun.

So great that you were able to have a get together. So funny about your biscuits - can laugh with you as I think we all have been guilty of that at times.

Susan said...

Its always fun to get together with bloggy friends and a small group is great for talking and getting to know one another.
Dont worry about the biscuits - we all have little mishaps like that...

What a fun day! Maria had mentioned spending the day with bloggers, so I thought you might be involved. I need to find more bloggy buddies in my area.

Maria said...

We had the best day. Thanks to all the ladies for coming.
