Out and about

Yesterday I went up to Gisborne, driving in the rain and then the fog as I went from Bacchus Marsh to Bullengarook, was quite spooky and always in my mind is that fact that kangaroos are often on the roads there! But I arrived safely ( and late!) for a hair appt and had a great catch up with Marg and Karen. We went to Donna's place for lunch and it was lovely, then we sat in her Studio The Owlery for a cuppa and some sewing
I pinched this from Donnas blog (hope that is ok Donna) as I forgot to take a photo!! I was too busy taking photos of the kangaroos outside who have made Donna's place their home

I enjoyed watching the kangaroos in the next paddock!
We went back to Margs for dinner and then returned to Donna's for a sit and sew evening which was very enjoyable...always great to catch up with sewing friends I don't often see now we have moved.
Donna has finished her kitty quilt, the quilting is flowers and cats!! Very cute!!

I managed to sew up 3 and three quarters stars!!
Was so good to catch up with the Gisborne girls, Marg and her hubby kindly let me stay with them
Posing in the kitchen with Margaret.

I visited Tracee on the way home and got a beautiful photo of her and her gorgeous dogs Justice and Artemis, these puppies keep her busy!! 

I nearly forgot, Marg has finished her fabric mosaic of her Mum, taken from a photo when her Mum was 16 I think. It looks amazing! Well done Marg!!
I picked up Chinese on my way back thru Geelong today and I can now hear the microwave, so it must be dinner time!!
Happy sewing.

Nice visit with friends! I'm amazed by the kangaroo photo! I've only seen them in zoos and can't imagine seeing one in the yard.
