Meeting New Friends and Birthday Presents

On Tuesday I collected Vicki (who had come to "Sunny Queensland") and we headed off on a road trip in some torrential rain to meet up with some of our Friends in Stitching buddies.

Me, Vicki, Helen, Tereasa and Teresa

I think I even managed to get some stitching done in amongst the laughter!

While we were there Vix and I swapped our birthday presents from last year......

How different do these clocks made from the same pattern look?

I also decided that I would be much better organised and give Vix her birthday present for this year a bit early..............

It was great to spend the day with a wonderful bunch of people.

I am off on Sunday for a few days at a stitching retreat ......... lets hope the weather improves for the drive there.
