Catching Up.....

This week I have been spending more time socialising, than I have sewing!!
First we were treated to a delicious dinner made by my eldest son and his girlfriend. Vegetarian was the menu tonight and I brought along my favourite salads... traditional Greek salad and a mushroom salad.
James made spinach and feta tortellini and the best ever vegetarian lasagne.

Dessert was almond and pear tart! It was so good I had to fit in a second piece!!!!
Then today I was lucky enough to meet one of my blogging friends in person. Vicki is up from Tassy for a wedding this weekend, and while she has been staying on the Gold Coast, I got the chance for lunch and a chat! It was really lovely to spend some time together.
I did get a little bit of sewing done this week too... This embroidery is the front of my Needlewomans Cottage by Faeries in my Garden. I just have the sides of the house and roof to go now. A lot of work in this project!!!
I have also finished another block for my on-line group Friends in Stitching BOM. This is the Card Trick block in Rouenneries fabrics.
I had better get something finished so I can add to my Opam list this month hadn't I????
Maybe this weekend.....
Hope you all have a wonderful, productive, creative weekend!

How nice of your son to have you over for dinner, the food looks delicious. And it is always nice to meet internet friends, glad you did.
Your stitchery looks very, very nice, I can see it is a lot of work, and I always thought the GDO quilt is a lot of work, but it is nothing compared to your new project!
Keep going!

That must be fun, having your kids so big they cook you dinner!
Love the front of the house and wonder what the rest is going to be like ;-).... Couldn't find it at the website you mentioned.

hI Teresa, just wondering if you have the recipes for the lasagna and pasta dishes.

Lots of yummy looking dishes there. Sounds like you had a great week.
Youre tastes are too similar to mine. That stitchery is absolutely gorgeous. I need to check it out now to make one myself.....sew much to make, sew little time ;)
Can I order some more hours in the day?
