A fun day………

Yesterday was a really fun day spent with some lovely crafty ladies and their friends.  It was great to actually meet some people from blogland! There was much craftiness, chatter and eating……and I was really excited to show off Sewjourn!  The creativity of all these girls is amazing – collages, dressmaking, spinning, quilting, embroidery……….the list goes on.  I did manage to do some more yoyos for the curtain for the front room.


Actually we were lucky to have any food to eat at all as my plans for cooking Friday afternoon at home were thwarted by power failure so I packed up EVERYTHING……all the ingredients, tins, food processor – you get the picture……..and headed to Lancefield.  Firstly I turned on the airconditioners in the cottage and the studio and then unpacked the car ready to roll when……….THE POWER WENT OFF THERE TOO!  All of Lancefield was without power until about midnight, even the pool had to close so a cold shower was all I could do to cool down.  But with an early morning start all was recovered and we did have food to eat.  (By the way the power at home was off for more than 12 hours!)  Thank goodness for some cooler days ahead.

And a huge thanks to Meredithe and Bonnie for your help – you gals are great!

    Thanks again Jan for such a fantastic day – you put so much effort into making sure we were comfortable, well fed and watered, and I loved every minute of it! What a lovely bunch of women! I was truly exhausted by the time I got home, which is strange since I didn’t really exert myself physically, but I think mentally – I just enjoyed the experience so much, my head was bursting!

    It was so so lovely. I felt very privileged and pampered, and it was fun to meet you and the other women.

    Thanks again Jan, so very much.

    Hi Jan, Thank you so much for such a wonderful day last Saturday. You are such a generous soul, especially with all those hiccups with the power! Katherine and I are just working out when we can come back! Love Kylie
