Wendy, pears, and Blossom...


Do you like wearing a new dress?
So does my blog. 
What do you think of her swishy teal and mustard frock?

My blog and I have been on a two day shopping expedition for 'just the right' attire; a new dress for a new season. She chose well. I commend her. 

Today Blossom had the day off work so we drove down to Wendy's for a visit. We *love* visiting Wendy!
When we arrived she handed me the biggest bunch of pears...
Such pretty shabby pears, and all for me! My collection is rapidly increasing...
But that wasn't the end of the blessings.
She had baked a scrumptious chocolate cake, and a yummy quiche for lunch!
Blossom helped Wendy with the salad...
...and the laughter from the two of them filled the house.
Lunch was WONDERFUL and we didn't stop laughing all day!

The purpose for our visit was to help Wendy shop for a new dress her own blog could show off, and it's sweet as sweet can be - just like Wendy. 
We even made her a new header, because Wendy is now officially a designer with her patterns being published later this year in a few Australian craft magazines! I'll be able to say, "I know her!"...
Why don't you drop over HERE to her blog and congratulate her!?
She'll blush bright pink, and her heart will swell.

I'm stitching a new design using the sweetest Cosmo Seasons threads...

What are you stitching this week?

Hugs,
Jenny

I'm playing catch-up on a couple of projects, and then I'm thinking next week I get to start the MonDaisy Block! Actually, I think I might do it in lime green, a light turquoise, and ... whatever else I have back there. I think I'm going to use it in place of a star block in my Comfort & Joy Christmas quilt. I already replaced two stars with hearts, so why not with a MonDaisy block? Or maybe something else from your magazine. I'll have to go peruse them all to check for the best one! Good excuse, eh?

Forgot to say - I love that blog redesign! I like the fabric, though I've never found it in the store, only online. I think it's fabric, right? Or else it's very similar to a fabric I love.

Very pretty fresh look Jenny and good job on Wendy's too.

what a lovely day out you had with Blossom. Love the new look to your blog, maybe you could do a blog on how to do a backgroudg for those of us who do not know how?
