The reason l had to be home the 23rd, was so l could be there to celebrate
my DD's special birthday the next day. My sister flew down from Brisbane,
and joined us for a weekend of celebration. We spent 2 days cooking,
and on the Sunday held a high tea party.
Some of the gathered guests, in their Sunday best, enjoying the food on offer.
Here is the birthday girl, ready to blow out her candles.
We also had some extra special guest's arrive during the afternoon.
On the left, Di Hall ( Ford) Nel Noonin, Mary Koval, and Petra Prins.
in Bedford P.A. and is well known for her antique quilts she sells and fabrics
she designs using antique fabric.
The 3 of them made the trip to Australia, and had been in Sydney
for the quilt show, arriving at my place that afternoon.
l met all 3 at Houston last year, when l visited Festival with Di.
Then l visited with Mary in March,
when l went for the red and white exhibit.
Nel and Petra were to be house guests with Di for the week, and Mary and Joe Koval were
staying with me for their remaining time in Australia. We had plenty of
exciting adventures planned for them. l will be back with some of them soon!!!
Thanks for visiting.
