Having just spent 4 weeks at my beach house, one would expect to come home relaxed, rejuvenated and ready to go!! Well, l am pleased to say l am.
While the first 2 weeks were busy with family, and many friends visiting, the second week l managed to read 3 books while watching the flooding dramas engulfing our northern neighbours.
l took a pasta cooking class, making it from scratch. And took a bag of goodies home,
and shared a wonderful meal with my DH.
Then there was the family pizza night, when we made 20 pizza's ( also from scratch )
to feed a hungry family of 20 adults.
The 4th week, 4 girlfriends joined me and we had some much needed sewing therapy.
Cooking plays a large part of our life at the beach, and when the girls visited,
it was no different. Some wonderful meals were shared, a few glasses of wine drunk,
many wonderful stories told and shared, and new memories made.
Lots of these were sewn.
l am so looking forward to this new year, and even with January already done and dusted,
there are many adventures ahead.
l had 2 quilts published this month. The first one, Georgie's Birthday Quilt,
was in Australian Patchwork and Quilting.
My thoughts today are with our northern neighbours again, as they recover from what must
have been an incredibly frightening night, as Cyclone Yasi crossed land. l pray they are all safe!!
Thanks for visiting.
