I just can not wait for our sewing days, when 4 gals, who not 12 months ago, and who didn’t know each other, (well, not as a group!), get together and just stitch and chat and eat the yummiest of foods, (yes we do that well ….. and don’t you just love Miss Jen’s deliciousness she whipped up this week?),
We laugh till we just about burst, (notice the oh-so-gorgeous bovine shower cap???)
…and I don’t know what was really in that salad (or maybe it was the juice??!!??), but Miss Heather went' all ‘hippy’ on us!!!!
Honestly, we just enjoy each others company for every second we spend together. We discuss the woes of the world, our lives, our children, our plans for the future and of the past and we bounce ideas off one another and inspire each other exponentially, each and every visit…..
Jen brought out some of her projects she’s made over the years to show us and Heather just about got lost under the ever-increasing piles ….she even tried to sneak some into her bag (I think next time she’s bringing a ‘small’ suitcase!!!! LOL). After a couple of hours of inspiration from the first big plastic bin, it was almost time to go home…..we didn’t even get to open the other two!!!
But we all left with love in our hearts and an insatiable itch to stitch….I wouldn’t be surprised if we’re all up till late every night until we meet for another stitchy session!!!! LOL
And yes, there was a LITTLE stitching done, but do you think I photographed that ????……..naaaaaah…….we chat, giggle and solve the problems of the world whilst we’re stitchin’!!!!!!! But you can see evidence of what Jenny got up to over on her blog. For the rest of us, you’ll just have to trust me! *wink*
Now it’s a three week wait for the next stitching day…..as it’s school holidays, Nonna Heather has grandchildren duty………how are we going to cope without a stitching day for three weeks???!!! Stitching days with friends really are such good therapy…..cheaper than a shrink by far, and waaaaay more effective, I’m sure!!!! *cheeky grin*
