4 blognormous days...........

If you don't want to hear me rave on about all the wonderful blog girls then skip this post......and the next couple.........but it's my blog to say what I want.................as I live so far away from bloggy friends and adventures I make the most of opportunities and pack in heaps when I get the chance.............hence the total exhaustion................Kris get yourself a cuppa cause this one is long..............


oh and if I don't give you all the links then you won't be able to visit them.........heaps of links included

It all started with a morning at Ag quip...........farm boys heaven..........but I had a wonderful morning with Bec...........it was so nice wandering around chatting............checking out the more girly displays..........

then it was off to Alison's for afternoon tea........beautiful cake............oh and her house is beautiful with lots of wonderful beautiful patchwork, stitcheries, cross stitches everywhere.........truely a crafters heaven............also discussions of projects in various stages............we talked lots but I think the dh's talked more.............lol.............Maree you have to get her to post a pic of the tiniest cross stitch I have ever seen.............not sure how she did the stitches............

we had a few issues after leaving Cardygirls (to late) - I started off driving then it got dark............no problems I drive in the dark all the time - but you know you should always go with the gut instinct not the stupid Mrs Bossy Boots (aka GPS) and dh - some weird directions given and the car came to a sudden stop................I knew it was wrong so I refused to drive any further - dh took over the driving then............
we arrived at Tutti Fruiti's later in the evening........lucky she was still awake........she was all chatter of the days events at Stitches and Craft and all the wonderful girls there in the incubator..............would I sleep for the night.............thankfully I did...............
(look what beauty surrounded me Tutti Fruiti's stand)

(Audrey and Maude's)

after an early rise Friday and a bad run with traffic (give me my cattle traffic anytime) we made it to Rosehill with time to spare...............Tutti's stand was next to Audrey and Maude aka Cathy and Lousie.............it was like catching up with old friends and meeting so many more new ones...............

  12. Hey Donna! Nah!! You've still got a ways to go before your posts are as long as my long-winded stories! Tee! Hee! Hee! Still ... I did enjoy the cuppa AND the peek at some of your adventures - can't wait to see what else you got up to and what goodies followed you home. Oooohh ... know what you mean about the bossy boots GPS thingy - ours has been nicknames "Prissy Pricilla" and she quite often gets very huffy with us when we don't go the way she thinks we should! :0) Hope you're resting up after your adventures! Bear Hugs! KRIS
