Bosom Friends, Books, Babies, Bon Jovi, Bags etc…

I have always been fond of alliteration :)

I caught up with ‘Booky’ Bosom friends - ‘The Bronze Horseman’ Book Club on Tuesday night for our Christmas break up. We shared a gorgeous Italian meal, book titles we’ve read/going to read this summer, and I got to cuddle the most delicious 10 week old baby named Xander. I will have to get a copy of the photo off Cheryl.

My Wednesday consisted of a ‘Bloggy’ Bosom friends Christmas catch up with Lisa and Susan. We exchanged gifts,

LHS from Susan, RHS from Lisa – THANK YOU xx

we toured Midland for some fabric shopping at work, a delicious lunch at Sweet Country Abode, a browse at Handcrafters House and Afternoon tea at Midland Patisserie. It is always a joy to spend time with these girls.

My afternoon was spent teasing & crimping my hair, putting on the stone wash denim and bedazzled shirt (only joking!) to go and see Bon Jovi – The Circle Tour, in Concert!!!! I last saw them 20 years ago so it was a real trip down memory lane for me. I even convinced my Mum to come with me – I wouldn't have 20 years ago :) My Bosom friend Vikki and Elise came too, we had the best night though it has taken me a wee bit longer to recover from the late night…

I have my store work party tonight. Do you remember how we made & exchanged aprons last year? Well this year we didn't have a theme, we just had to make something for the person we were given. Below is the evening bag I’ve made for …

It’s made from navy and gold shot silk. All the presents will be on display at Midland Textile Traders until Christmas Eve.

Speaking of presents, this arrived in the mail

My gorgeous Filly Dilly bag made by none other than Ros/Bloom/Muriel – another Bloggy Bosom friend. Thanks ever so much sweetie, I LOVE it.

My DH says I am using ‘Bosom Friend’ a bit too much, I blame it on my recent viewing of Anne of Green Gables ;)

Much Love
