Morning Tea with a friend
I'm a bit slow!!

The past week has been super busy

I have had to stop and rest after a super busy week.  I'm not as young as I used to be and I have been burning the candle at both ends and in the middle, so then I went crash and had to stop. 

I had two days driving, for 4 hours plus on each. To meet a friend and to take my husband out.  Not only is there the driving there is walking to and from the ferry, 1 km each way and then walking too and from the car once I get to the main land.  That all adds up but sitting by the water watching old men fishing, admiring the view and the wildlife makes the trips worth while.

Then I had a birthday.  Lots of messages and phone calls, more morning teas and a lovely day.  I felt so good I mowed my own and a neighbours lawns, (I got bitten by something again,) plus walking to visit a friend.  Then that evening we went back to the mainland to have dinner by the lake at sunset.

The reflections in the water was beautiful.

I then turned around and went into town to stay overnight.  Next morning I had breakfast with my daughter at a popular garden centre.  This place had a huge bamboo hedge,

and this little one just loved these rabbits. He was deep in conversation with them.

And I found a succulent that had grown it's flowers in the shape of a heart.  (This might make a good embroidery design.)

I didn't know it but apparently I had said I would take my daughter to the fabric store in the valley.  There I did some serious damage to the credit card buying fabric.

Then onto to teach and embroidery class.  No wonder I slept most of the next day!

But with all that fabric it is time to start sewing, so I am in dressmaking mode.  Good thing too.  The Xmas parties start this week and I need to make my Xmas dress.  I have the pattern pieces cut out but of course I'm going to change the style of the pattern.  (I couldn't just follow the pattern.)

The only bad thing is I'm going to have to change the thread in the over locker.  I HATE doing that.

No wonder I just feel like sleeping!!
