Sunny Brisbane

Last week was spent up in sunny Queensland.... and yes it was hot! Here is my acclimatised daughter saying it was "warm" and wearing a jacket!. She is working up there and loving the independence and the weather.

I also got to see her do some of this...

.. and this. Love those extensions. This is something that 18 months ago wouldn't have been possible but she just loves it. The teacher did ask if I was likely to attend a class(as a participant) Not on your life. The bruises that DD2 has following this are unbelievable so I will give it a miss.

I was also very lucky to catch up with Michelle from Rag Tag stitching. She took me to The Quilters' and Embroiders' store where I picked up the green and apricot fabric for a baby quilt that will be needed in April for a niece's baby and some threadworx thread which will help embroider some butterflies on a quilt for a grandbaby that will appear in March. Rosalie and I also wanted one of Michelle's new books so rather than have them posted I picked them up from the designer in person. I was also given a little bag of goodies. Thank you Michelle, it was a great morning, the shopping was good , the coffee and apple tart scrumptious and the company wonderful. I actually had my camera but bad blogger that I am I forgot all about it. Next time.... ( probably June as it will be cooler!)
