Yesterday morning, before I left home.. I dropped off the Special Project to my friend's family.
As 'J' is in hospital right now,I couldn't give it to her myself.

But the main thing is she got it.


ABOVE:This Dresden Plate quilt. It was a project I had started a couple of years ago.... which ended up just perfect for 'J' as its her favourite colour.

ABOVE: Apparently 'J' had asked for a blanket on sunday... so that was perfect timing! I hope she gets to enjoy it for ages.

A couple more photos from yesterday...

 ABOVE: Hot chips from Kinloc Cafe. Overcooked and tasted like old fish. Disgusting. 

ABOVE: At huka falls.... thought about catching a prawn or 5 and cooking and eating them for lunch... but decided I didn't want to on my own.  So got the yukky chips. Waste of money.

TODAY? I want visit the Bernina shop here and a couple of my favourite gift shops too. 

Tonight I hope to see Mike and Joyce.


Well... it's fabulously COOLER here in Palmy! I slept like a log. Such a relief. Sandra and I are going out n about soon...yaaa!

ABOVE: Well that was fun! Three hours shopping and having lunch. 
I bought a few things... in the big bag is stuff from an Acquisition 'Garage Sale' shop. Awesome stuff at very good prices. I got some birthday and christmas presents from there.

The patchwork shop I wanted to go to has closed down... another sad loss. 

We are back at the house now as Sandra has a client arriving soon
 Sandra does professional nails.

Lovely evening... Sandra cooked a delicious dinner then her hubby Neil dished up ice cream. Stuffed now!
