A Lovely Week

 
It's been a lovely week....I hope it has been for you too! 
Lots of lovely "happy mail" this week. I've joined Sue Daley's English paper piecing "Just like a jigsaw:" club and this is my first pack. Gorgeous fabrics and threads and a wonderful pattern to start with. I am really going to enjoy this!
Some wonderful "Bliss" fabrics.... sigh!!! ...that I scored in the great Australian Destash!
A wonderful Tuesday with the girls stitching to our hearts content. After a knitting question for Helen... she came out with this classic Knitting book. No date on it.... but it did cost a measly 25 cents!!! It's in perfect condition and she's even made a cute little tea cosy from it.
And talking about Helen....look at her amazing embroidery! She never ceases to amaze me with her beautiful, perfect work. Just gorgeous!
I had a wonderful day out with these wonderful ladies, (Barbara, Gail and Leona) at the Brisbane Art Gallery.
The Watercolour Exhibition is on at the moment and it is soooo good.... this is my second visit!
Many wonderful pieces to see, including these two of Scarborough and Suttons Beach, Redcliffe... where I spent much of my childhood.
And no trip to the Art Gallery is complete without a visit to my favourite painting "Monday Morning" (Vida Lahey 1912)...
Another gorgeous day in the city by the way....
Treasury Casino... impressive as always...
Lunch was wonderful at the Gallery Cafe... grilled haloumi cheese, eggplant, spinach and hummous... yum!
This is me... taken by Leona... and my "you seriously aren't taking a photo of me eating, are you?:" face!!!
Another lovely piece of fabric in the mail... and I couldn't resist this cute little twine holder from Tilda and Sarah at Patchworks Plus.
A lovely dinner with my favourite... Chicken Caesar salad...
There has been lots of sewing and crafting... but all secret stuff at the moment. Birthdays, babies and swaps!!! All to be revealed soon!
Hope you're having a wonderful weekend.... and "Happy Mothers Day" for tomorrow! Enjoy your day!!!

Hello my lovely Friend Teresa, WOW what a wonderful week you have had one of these days we will have to do a shopping trip together. Love the paper piecing that you are going to do may have to hope over and have a look at that site. Since you showed me how to do hexies i am wanting to learn more and more. Have a wonderful Mothers Day tomorrow and don't work hard. Hugs

I love to see how much you visit the Art gallery and enjoy the city. Looks like you've had a great week. The little spool holder is so cute, and I might have to check out Sue's new club.

Looks like a busy fun filled week - I went to GoMA this week - and loved the kaleidoscope exhibition - I know its for the kids but really a lot of fun!
