Bits and pieces...

It was my birthday yesterday! I had a lovely quiet day at home with my mum and dad. We went out for lunch to a local restaurant here in Healesville - Wattleseed. It's a great place to go, and the food is delicious, and very large servings. I had a lamb and rosemary pie, and oh - it was so good!

I got some lovely presents yesterday, and they all seemed to have a craft theme to them! I think people know me too well. I got a bundle of fat 1/8's in the purples/creams and greens colour range, and the board game, Stitchopoly from DMC. My friend Cath came over later and suprised me with a craft storage trolley! It will be brilliant to take to the craft class.



Speaking of which, we had our first craft day on Tuesday. We started with some cutting out, and learning how to use a rotary cutter. Most of the ladies hadn't used one before, and unfortunately my old ones are a bit blunt, which made it harder! But they all did really well, and I think everyone now has their bits cut out. We were going to make it a monthly thing, but I reckon we may make it fortnightly.


It's been great to see such a response to my BOM! I'm really quite excited to see some Rusty blocks, and I have also been working on the next blocks.

Anyway, enough from me. I worked at the shop this morning, and now I'm off to go for a walk and enjoy this lovely afternoon.

Happy Birthday for yesterday Sweetheart! Oh so young too! Your blog is great....the paper bag swap sounds terrific; am looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with. Love the mauve fabrics you purchased recently ..I'm in a "mauvey" type of mood lately...am thinking mauves, creams, greens will be my design colours for Easter next year. mmmmmm...got to start thinking of Easter 2010 around November, so may as well earmark some ideas now.
Many Blessings
