Secret Stitching......

Sunday was spent in the sewing room.......working on secret Santa stuff.......it felt good! I can't show you what I have been working on ...but I will share a couple of pics I took last Friday night - I had a seminar in the city on Thursday and Friday and rather than come home on Friday night the Prince came to the city and we went to the quilt/craft show on Saturday.......it is his birthday today so that was his birthday outing...LOLOL......

There was a great sunset with a jet trail cutting thru it.........

While I was waiting for the Prince to arrive I opened a bottle of "bubbly"....this was mineral water...but it made for some good pics!


We had a leisurely start to the day on Saturday ......watching the rowers on the lake while we had breakfast ........then it was off to the quilt show...........I bought a few patterns and a Sew-Ezy portable sewing table.....this is in preparation for the summer when I will be moving my sewing machine downstairs where the air con is.....and with temps expected to be in the high 30's all week I think I might be sewing downstairs sooner rather than later........! It's a bit early to be this hot ....but not much one can do about the weather....!!

'Til next time.......................Lorraine

November birthdays are the best! (ask me how I know this :)!) Sounds like a wonderful finish to a weekend, nothing like looking at quilts to make smiles appear. I've been considering one of those tables too as my machine just sits on top of a desk and darn it is hard to machine quilt that way. I don't think it will be quite so hot when I get to AUS but maybe...

It's funny to hear about how your temps are heating up when I'm dressed in multi layers because we are having snow here! Glad the Prince is feeling better....
