The Wrap Up….

It’s taken me this long to recover from our trip to Perth and to find a few minutes to put this post together! And I did my back in lugging the excess luggage that arrived by post on Friday morning!! (Just kidding….about the back that is!)

Wow, what a time. The bank balance is a little depleted and so is the sleep bank. Katherine, Abigail and I arrived home late and I finally slipped into bed at 3am….then I had to get up and go to work!  We had a wonderful time and didn’t waste a single minute.

Lot’s of lovely sewing and time spent investing in our very special friendship.  Janelle and Katherine finished their Zig Zags, mine’s still waiting to be finished….tomorrow.

Abigail had a lovely time too… hee hee isn’t she gorgeous.

While at Paper Fusion we saw the most gorgeous framed paper art, we had to buy up a few paper pads and instead of sewing my quilt top together like I should have I popped into IKEA and got a frame and made this….

Katherine and I are also part of a group we call “Secret Women’s Business”. We each take a turn organising a girls night out.  Mine happened to be the Saturday night after our return from Perth. So taking some inspiration from my big frame I did a scaled down version.  The girls all did a great job and went home with a little frame of their very own.

It does look like a very impressive pile of fabric when you peek over it like that Kylie. I am still trying to find spots to put all mine. I wonder what the postie thought was in all those packages?! Thanks for a great night on Saturday!

You girls are just ace! I love that you spend quality time together doing crafty and secret women's business.

And those frames are just too cute. I saw your link on 'a spoonful of sugar' and thought I'd pop over.
