Hello 2016!

It's the 2nd week of 2016 so I thought I need to get blogging. 
The big news is that Helen's new shop "Quarter Inch" opened it's doors today!
Over the xmas break I finally got Beatrice out of her box and had a play and I also had a good go at cleaning up my room, it's alot better now.
Last week I had my high school bestie, Valerie, visiting, poor girl had to wear a moonboot as she had injured her ankle a few weeks ago but that didn't stop her doing things. We visited the top of Kunanyi (Mt Wellington)
 We shopped, ate, drank (beautiful Barossa Dutschke bubbles) and as always we picked a project to work on and we chose one of Helen's designs. We both made good progress, and now we're chugging our way through applecores!
The applique shapes are all stitched down now.
Valerie also gifted me a precious quilt. 
I'm so blessed to have the most beautiful friends in my life.
As for 2016 I plan to enjoy every minute of it as who knows what lies ahead!

Hey Jo, how lovely spending time with friends. And how exciting Helen's shop opening. Hopefully I will get to see it one day, it looks great and I'm sure once she has finished with all her additions etc it will be amazing.
2016 has started beautifully for you, may it continue. xxx
