Catching up once again!

The days are zipping by here, we had hubbies birthday gathering on Saturday so last week was lots of shopping and preparing food, Jenny was super busy creating her NZ special salads, I had planned to take lots of photos but didn't!! Was just too busy, I did get one later in the afternoon

Two lovely party goers Tracee and Ondrea, they both were here with their hubbies and we got too have a little chat in between rushing around!!

various Palmer family members on Sunday morning. 
I have had some wonderful surprises...yep I am still celebrating my birthday even now!!
Ondrea gave me this beautiful ....PURPLE...(yay) table topper and a gorgeous scented candle, just love it
Jill gave me a new diary for next year..that has lots of inspiration in it!!
Jenny has been knitting in the shade on the deck

and testing the waters down at the beach, actually she cut the end off her finger while cutting onions so we thought putting it in salt water woul dbe good, and it was after the stinging stopped!!

I joined in a Christmas postcard swap hosted by Sheila and received this beautiful card from Annette, I haven't heard that my card has arrived with her yet.

I also received a beautiful card, pattern and Xmas decoration from Michelle...thank you Michelle, it is beautiful.
Roght, Jenny and I are off to explore the antique centre on the Bellarine Highway today, then heading for Queenscliff for a wander.
I have been doing some clamshell sewing, slowly getting towards a complete rectangle shape.
Happy sewing.

Good to know that you have thawed out now. That postcard is beautiful and Michelle's gift is lovely too. Hope Jenny has had time to rest up and enjoy the rest of her stay. It was good to meet her.
