Happy birthdays

In the last school holidays HMB, EJB and I finally got to visit my bestie Kate and her beautiful kids in Orange. Long overdue, it was soooo good to see them:) It involved dinner at Hogs Breath Cafe and a little celebration for HMB recently turning 18, do you know they bring you cake and sing happy birthday??? Imagine my horror ;) when they plonked a plate down in front of me too!!!! The "beautiful" Kate had also let them know that my birthday was the following week....anyway it was a lovely evening with good company...desserts AND cocktails!! Below is a pic of H, E and Molly, with the rocky road ice cream- it was huge!!!....but we ate it...,

I was lucky enough to join in with Kates' sewing group for a retreat day. It was heaven...sewing all day..no interuptions- except for lunch, afternoon tea and we even had dinner there;) They are a wonderful group of ladies..Kate is so lucky to call them her friends. While we were there Kate surprised me with an early birthday gift...I am so lucky to have such a talented and generous friend!! I LOVE IT!!!



I will set it up in my sewing room, but the light was better on the dining table for picture taking...my sewing room also looks like a bomb has gone off....need to spark it back up so it matches my cute new sewing caddy. What a great gift!!!


Have a great weekend!! xo Suze.
