I am in queensland at my folks place and it's raining. Yesterday I went to The Stitching Angel at Forest Glen and it's beautiful. The nicest little shop i've been in for a long time. The staff and regulars are so nice. I was agood girl and bought one pattern and two threads. When we got home i went to look at my pattern and the threads were missing!!!! Oh NO!!!! I rang this morning and they were accidently left there so off we went to pick them up!!! Yeh happy again.
Tonight I only have Isaac as Rhiannon is having a sleep over with Uncle Chris and the Kids on Bribie Island. Mum, Rhiannon, Isaac and I went to the Bribie quilters exhibition this morning. Some nice quilts,some were for sale, some were well priced, some not. We had a little play with this fan dangle quilting machine that cost only $16 wait for it $16000. Only!!! If only!!! It was nice....It was fun.... Even my Mum (who only sews when she has too on the 20 year old Janome) had a go and she liked it!!!! If only.... I will try to find a pic and post it when I get home..
Before I left home I won my first ever blog give away. Thanks Bec... My hubbie told me today I got mail from Lawson so I guess thats from Bec. I will post about that when i get home too.
Tomorrow we are off to Yandina. Monday we will be going to Montville and Melany apparantly there's nice craft shops there...
I am a Thrity something female married with the most beautiful girl Rhiannon or Renny as we call her.We have just expanded in the family sense with the birth of our handsome mini man Isaac who has completed our little family.I have the best husband who I would say is also my best friend. It's great to have a partner who realises that craft is more important!!!
