Snowie


 I love this snowie design by Michelle Ridgway, of Rag-Tag stitchin' i have decided to use him for some hanging xmas decorations.


I managed to get 2 finished i want to make about 25 to pop into a xmas card for my craft group out here.


I love the cottage garden thread i am using its called Billabong,such pretty colours.


Found some fabric to match the thread,this is a lovely quick stitchery to make up,thankyou Michelle for your cute drawings.


I picked up some nice fresh Australian grown asparagus at Aldi's when i was shopping with the girls last week and i made this lovely Chicken,Asparagus & Sweet Corn soup recipe below.


Its a lovely recipe my sister gave me and i make it up quite often.

Hope your day is a good one.

What a Fun Day


 I got to spend Friday with my good buddies Barb and Anne,we were to catch up for my birthday and to also do some shopping for our trip next month,so they took me to Werribee Plaza,omg its huge and it was a very wet and windy day so we didnt hang around the car park for too long,lol.

 First shop we had a look in was a pop up xmas shop.

 I think Barb was whispering her xmas list to Santa,it was a lovely shop .

 Lol Anne smelling a candle,should i tell her the lid is still on,we cracked up over this and trust me to have caught it on camera,lol,sorry Anne.
My first visit to Daiso,oh boy did we have fun in there,caught Barb playing with a toy,she said she was buying it for the kids at her childcare,lol,hmm yes we know Barb,lol.

 Then we went to the most awesome cake shop,Anne was very excited,lol,these girls crack me up.

 Barb was lovely and shouted us a wonderful Japanese meal for my birthday,the food was amazing,thankyou my friend .


 Got myself some new boots for my trip,they were nearly half price.

 Also got myself a new purse,one where my cards wont fall out and it is RFID protected ,which means my cards cant get scanned while in this.


And how spoilt am i Barb knows me so well ,i take a water bottle to bed with me and also have one sitting on my knee while stitching,so she bought 2 and crochet such pretty covers for them,i was tickled pink with these as my other covers are quite shabby,thankyou so much my friend .

 Then after a big day of shopping (cant believe how quick the time went) we went back to Anne's and had the most delicous orange rough cake,gee it was yummy and while there i spotted these lovely storage bottles for Anne's beads,they looked great sitting next to the old scales.

Well i had the most amazing time with these two sister's as i always do,thankyou girls for an awesome day.

Hope your day is a good one.

Bits & Pieces

 We have been getting lots of kangaroos in the yard lately and while in side i heard this thumping noise and i thought boy whats that,so i went outside and was lucky enough to quickly grab my camera and take pics of 2 young bucks having a boxing match,they sure do make a lot of noise when boxing,lol.



We are also very lucky and have some amazing and pretty birds out our way as well,dont know my birds very well,Fiona might know what these ones are,at a guess i would say Parrots.


I forgot to show you the pretty birthday card that my clever mum made for me,thankyou mum i love it.


This is what i bought when i went shopping with Lynnie at A little Different last week,the middle row of fabrics were only $10 a mt,love a bargan.


I finished this lovely stitchery,which is a cute design by Rosalie Dekker


The pattern is out of Rosie's book called Gift and is called Stitchery Gift Bags,another pressie for the gift box,this was quite quick to make up.

Hope your day is a good one.
