Fun, fun, fun......


Thursday brought an adventure for me ..... and I took a lovely drive out in the country to a town called Gatton....

This is their main cultural centre entrance - there is a special display for Anzac at the moment....


.. the hall of fame - local legends...


... and a lovely cafe/restaurant with this view.....


... and to the left...  Lake Apex looks great for a walk around ....

There is also a Transport Museum, Art Gallery and Library at the centre... great public facility


... and here is the reason for the adventure..... meeting up with Michelle.  A mutual friend Robyn was on her way to the coast so joined us for lunch


It's a wonderful half way point to meet up and we'll do it again - maybe some stitching, walking shoes and picnic next time?  

I got home in good time to enjoy this lovely Autumn sunset....  this happens to be my view from the kitchen sink - at least it can make washing dishes a little pleasant????


Talking of Michelle I am starting a little project from her Holly Cottage book.... there are lots of sweet ones to do....  I find books are such good value when they have multiple projects in it..  Michelles book is available direct from her HERE


We have a rule of no pressies when we get together - Michelle is such a rebel and brought me one this trip.... look at this adorable tin with sewing things all over it..... I love it... 


... and a Tilda treat inside it too - I have fallen madly in love with Tilda fabrics (amongst others!) so this was just perfect... thanks Michelle (but you are very naughty to break the rules!!!)


So a lovely day out - can't wait for the next one...

Righto, Gotto Go... some stitching to do and a Christmas project to choose...
