Saturday Again !

Where has the week gone??

We did spend 4 days in the Big Smoke.
Before going  I  managed to make two sewing kits for Gum Tree Design Flood Appeal 2011.and get them in the post.
Remember if you can help it would be appreciated.

While in Perth I just HAD to buy a few nice things.


Enjoyed a visit with DD2 and youngest GC but it is nice to be home again.
When I  checked the mail and I was delighted to receive all these lovely letters and parcels.


My special Angel from Cat because she cares.

A pretty stitchery and FQ I won at “As Sweet as Cinnamon”

My block swap and needles from Gai and Christmas Block from Linda in USA.

Thank you so much Ladies for my goodies.

In the top left corner is a Goat I need to work on before sending her on. Her owner may read my post.

Oh almost forgot to post about our
Red Hatters “ 3rd Birthday Party. We had a “Teddy Bears Picnic”  at the Marina.

011 We brought along our favourite Teddy and made outfits for them.


We also made our own placemats.


  Had lots of Yummy food and then it was time to cut the cake.


Isn’t he just so cute!!


     A Happy 3rd Birthday was had by all.
