'I'm Back', plus some Special Friends

My DH has fixed the computer - Hooray! I have been going through serious computer and Internet withdrawals, its not good to go cold turkey from the Internet like that *vbg* Moving on...

I have mentioned lately that we have been packing our house, "Why?" you ask. We will be moving in 3 weeks time - from Pingelly (2 hours South East of Perth, WA), our home for the past 4&3/4 years, to Ellenbrook - in the Northern Suburbs of Perth. We are excited about the move, but sad to say goodbye to such precious friends - I would like to introduce some of them to you.

Renee, Leigh & Monique (aka 'Mog')

These girls have made my life in Pingelly so special. We have laughed, cried, shopped, talked, shared cuppa's & great food, and crafted together. This particular photo was taken at a special sewing day in November 2007, we made a 'chemo' quilt for my dear SIL Sue - who was battling cancer at the time. We worked together to produce this...

Sue's disappearing 9 patch quilt

This was Sue's first hand made quilt, and she loved it. Sadly, Sue passed away in April of this year. She leaves behind her beloved husband Mike and her 2 precious sons Jonathan and Daniel - we miss her very much.

I wanted to honour these precious girlfriends for their hard work, and for the Joy that the quilt brought to Sue. I love you all very much!

OK, now I need the tissues...

Wishing you all fantastic weekend, shared with Family and Friends. I am off to pack another box (& another, & another etc.)

With Love

Best wishes for the move! My grandparents were both born and raised in the Pingelly area before moving to Perth in the early 1940's.

Hope your DS only has a mild dose of the chicken pox - not much fun at all!!Just what you need when you are getting ready to move.

Ellenbrook, Hmm I think we drove through that suburbwhen we went to Perth a few years ago. Lovely State you live in , much warmer that cold Victoria. I hope you find lots sof lovely friends and I am sure you will as your smiling personality shows through on you blog.
