A fun packed weekend!

Last weekend was spent with friends; most of them I have met over the years through blogging. On Saturday we had arranged to all meet up at Browns Plain for a lunch with a very special visitor from New South Wales...it was Donna, aka Chookyblue!

But there is a patchwork shop at Browns Plain so most of us left home early so we could visit the shop before lunch...😉

I was quite restrained in my shopping...


Then it was time to head off to the Browns Plains Tavern...


It was a lovely catch up with blogging friends and our lovely guest of honour...


My lunch was a pumpkin salad with grilled chicken...delicious!


We staying chatting for quite a few hours, enjoying catching up and also enjoying the air conditioning  in the Tavern.


Most of these friends are also Sunday Stitchers too! And of course the next day was our February Sunday Stitchers meet up at Orneau.
So on Sunday there were comments about 'how it was ages since we'd seen each other' wink wink! Lol



We had some delightful Show and Tell on Sunday...
From Michelle...



From Marilyn...

From Helen...

At Sunday Stitchers we all work on our own projects. I worked on some EPP using some of my Liberty stash...

It was a great weekend!

Since I moved to South Carolina I haven't met up with any blogger friends and I miss that! We do live in a nice neighborhood of good people but all involved with their families who live close by and since they have lived here most of their lives, very old friends. Anyway, what a lovely meet-up with likeminded blogger friends. And topped off with a fabric shop = just about perfect!
