That’s what friends are for…..
Can you believe it? Nine finishes on Friday night!!?? Ok, they weren’t the trendiest or the most attractive finishes (and neither was the model….selfies are AWFUL aren’t they???), but they did draw the most attention on Saturday night……. nine mop hats ready for our Relay for Life team…..and they were grabbed and worn by everyone!!!! Here they are at about midnight, having the elastic threaded through the casings…. they look like giant pizza bases, don’t they??? Armed with the 9 hats and my huge pot of pea and ham soup, I toddled off to the Relay. Why the hats?? Our team was called “Polly Put the Kettle On”…..figure out the theme for the relay this year yet???? Hmmmmm????…..our tent was appropriately decorated and we were the ‘official’ cappucino and hot chocolate tent, with all funds raised from sales going to the Cancer Fund I lost count of how many cuppa’s I made but we were going practically all night so I imagine it was well over a couple of hundred. Well I couldn’t really walk with MY knee, so I was designated……barista?! Temperatures were cold on the damp grassy football field and by 5am it was 9 degrees….I really wish I had brought more warm clothes and quilts……but I did manage half an hour’s sleep and a couple of 10 minute shut-eyes. Despite that, Sunday was a complete wipe out!!!! Hubby says I snored the roof off!!!! I don’t snore!!!!!!! LOL Today was a perfect get together day for our Monday stitchery group…we started off at the Palmetum tea garden and blew the diet out the window!!!…… (My barista skills didn’t extend to New Zealand ferns!!!!..think I needed more lessons! ) before heading to one of the ladies’ houses for stitching…..I did some power stitching to work off some of those calories!!!! Nothing like the support of friends to motivate you!!! I’m nearly finished Jenny’s “In an English Garden” stitchery….it’s so sweet, I’m loving it! Hope you’re getting some time for stitching too! sugary hugs xox :O)
