Friends!

Oh, I have had  a lovely day! Friends for lunch...dear Chookyblue & Fairygirl dropped by...a great treat! They were joined by my non blogging friend, Lea....there was lots of chat about the Girls day in the Country at Cottage on the Hill,Nundle coming up in March. The guest tutor will be Anni Downs...it will be a fun weekend!

One of my friends is off to Africa tomorrow & didn't have her stitching organised (gasp!), so I traced off this stitchery for her this afternoon...it will help to fill in those quiet moments no doubt.

I have been trying to catch up with my Sue Ross BOM...applique medallion under control, but still need to stitch the previous block...but there was a certain someone running interference...hmmm!

I mad a yummy roasted beetroot, sweet potato, fetta & macadamia nut salad a few days ago...bought some more beetroot today...doesn't it look lovely!

Mmmmm... that salad sounds delicious! Your cat looks just like mine laying there right in the middle of all your work. It is like we are really in their way. Too funny!

Yummy! The salad sunds very tasty! Can't wait for summertime so we can get some nice fresh produce that hasn't been shipped through most of Europe for a week before it hits the stores....

Sounds like a wonderful day spent with friends :-)

Lucky you with Chookyblue and Fairygirl dropping in, wish I'd been there too!!! What do you use to trace the stitcheries?? That salad sounds fantastic, we love roasted beetroot in this house!

Your friend will be able to do lots of stitching while away now. It sounds like you had a great afternoon with your visitors. I do like the sound of your salad. I might have to create something similar.

The salad sounds yummy. Looks like you might have to share the recipe :). I see you have cat problems to when you are trying to sew.

Your not alone with the interference - our little dogs like to come in and sleep on my cutting mat when I stash it under the coffee table...
So glad you enjoyed your visit with Chookyblue and Fairygirl. What a lucky friend to have you trace off a stitchery for her!
