It can be such a crazy time and such an exciting time too!
The most enjoyable part for me is catching up with family and friends.
Last week I did lunch with two very special and most sincere friends. Before lunch I verbalized how much I appreciated their friendship and what it means to me. There were some moist eyes.
We had lunch at Marleen’s house and she has it decorated beautifully (as usual) with all her handmade quilts and wall hangings and handmade gifts from her many friends.
Marleen with her latest creation. She says this will definitely be a ‘one off’. Isn’t it cute??
We had a delicious morning tea followed by an equally delicious lunch. We shared some stories of 2012 and had a few laughs.
No – this is not snow in Queensland! We had a large hail storm last Tuesday and we were stuck in the car in the car park of Lilian’s kindy. Some of the hail was as big as a marble and made quite a din. Luckily, no damage to the car.
Over the past couple of weeks there has been much frenzied shopping over the internet by both myself and my hubby. I am dreading the arrival of the next credit card bill!
Gift to myself – Dye-na-flow fabric paints and the Cas Holmes book, “The Found Object”, which I purchased from Book Depository. I love that you can order a book in your pyjamas, have it delivered for free and have it delivered to your door within a week. The fabric paints I ordered from Susan at Essential Textile Art. Excellent, prompt service from Susan too!
On Thrusday night we took our little grand daughter to see Santa and the Christmas lights in Queen’s Park. The lights were amazing – organized by the Lions Clubs of Toowoomba and sponsored by various local organizations. Well worth going and seeing, and the delight on Lilian’s face made it even more special.
To my blogging friends, I wish you all peace and joy at Christmas time.
