Some Show & Tell, and catching up with a friend!

This week has been a quiet one for blogging, but very busy behind the scenes at home.
I decided that I would get all the birthday, and Christmas 'swap and friend' gifts finished by Friday, and hopefully all the overseas ones posted away by then. I almost achieved my goal! \o/
I can probably finish the gifts this weekend, and then...I'll be free to sew gifts for my beloved grandsons.
~~~~~
This week on Show and Tell I have another Daisy-do finish!
Sabine has completed hers, all in lovely, soothing blues...
I really like how Sabine has added those little mother-of-pearl buttons down the side, don't you? :-)
~~~~~
The reason I fell behind in my goal for this week was because I took a day off!
Wendy emailed to ask if I could drive to the coast and meet her in Townsville. Blossom thought this would be a great idea, so off we went!!
Wendy had a doctor's appointment, and Bloss and I needed to do some Christmas shopping, so we finally got to meet up at lunch.
Here we are, waiting for lunch...we look happy because we were!! We were so excited to see each other again!!
~Jenny & Wendy - Nov 19th 2010~
My girl Blossom...
...and Wendy's boy Nic were there too.
 (another reason Wendy & I are so happy...we sure have gorgeous teenagers, and we got to show them off to each other! LOL!!)
And here's Wendy's husband, Joe...
He doesn't like his photo taken, but I am cheeky so I took one of him buying the Cokes. :-)
We all had a great lunch together, laughing all the time. It was just all too short a visit. 
Next time we catch up it will be for some serious stitching time together, don't you think Wendy? LOL!!
~~~~~
Have a lovely weekend!
I'll finish those gifts...
Hugs
Jenny

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
hugs
Jenny
