Hello Kitty

March 6th 003

I’d like to introduce you to Kitty, my new KitchenAid mixer – lucky, lucky me. My Nanna’s 23 year old Kenwood Chef (which was on permanent loan from Mum) started smoking when DH last made bread. DH was most apologetic and offered to buy me one of these baby’s. My friend Traceylea (TJ) bought a pink one before she left the USA & I’ve wanted one ever since I laid eyes on it. You’ll be happy to know that Kenny the Kenwood has gone off the be repaired and will take up residence back at Mums house.

I received some lovely mail yesterday, my PIF prezzies arrived from Maree at Farmyard Crafts. Take a look at these precious goodies made by loving hands – I am truly blessed, thanks ever so much Maree.

My friend Jennywren rang me up yesterday for a chat and to ask “so, are you going there or are they coming here for the sewing weekend?” well, we are taking a family holiday to Melbourne over the last week of March & I can’t wait! Whilst the Sewing Sisters go to Port Arlington for our sewing weekend, the DH’s will be in charge of the cherubs. Don’t fret for them, they have already planned a trip to the footy for the first round of the season. We will also be doing some visits to our favourite places – Miss Marples in Sassafras, Savers at Greensborough (the Best Op Shop), Melbourne zoo etc.

My spirits are well and truly lifted now :)

With Love

Kitty is gorgeous! I have been admiring them for some time now - but like Susan my Sunbeam still has some life left in it! The Pink ones are lovely - can't wait to see what you bake up with it.
