August is almost here.... that means its almost time for our Annual Festival with the SA Miniature Club. It is our 25th Anniversary this year, so as expected the theme is silver. If you have time - please come along and see what we do in the 'little world' we often live in :)
Besides the 'little' displays, there are traders, demonstrations and of course scones and tea (and coffee and cake and sandwiches and an array of other delightful foods)

And the winner is....

well almost a winner!! We have had the Building and Home Improvement Expo on in Adelaide this weekend. Part of the show had a competition run by Interflora and my friend Lynette entered (as she is a florist :) ) and she took out two 1st prizes and came Overall Runner Up!!!! I was so thrilled for her. She won a lovely trophy - and money which is always handy. So if you want some nice flowers sent to someone or for yourself, just go and see her at Roses of Elizabeth and you will be sure to get a wonderful arrangement from a winner!!!Here is Lynette with her trophy and employers - Rob and Karen.

Well done Lynette!!!

A run out.....

and a bit of money spent!!! I know, I friends! that I said I wasn't buying any fabric unless I had a project for it.......well........who could go past this great bargain???? SW and I took the Dads out for the day up to Strathalbyn and of course just HAD to go into Kirkbride Quilts!! These two beautiful packs were for sale, so they had to come home with me. One of the packs will be used in a project that is on the table at the moment and I am more than sure I can find something for the other pack!!! Anyway, Sally at Kirkbride, has now got a lovely cafe happening at the shop now - so not only are your eyes sent into a spin with the fabric delights but now your nasal passages are sent on a dream too!!!

Not much on the home front....

....even tho I say that, I wonder what I do with my time??? Friday was Snobs and Slobs Day at my place. Quilty Gal and her sister were doing some crocheting - this was the product at the end of the day!! Quilty Gal had been teaching Sis to crochet for the best part of the day - then we found out that Sis had previously been to lessons for said craft!!! We wouldn't of guessed - LOL!!!Last weekend SW and I went to a friends 80th Birthday - very nice indeed!! This is me and Yvonne (the 80th lady)

Then I went to a Baby Shower....looking forward to the baby coming along next month (or earlier according the mum-to-be).
I have been doing some sewing, but can only show you the mess I made making the quilt (as the finished product is a secret at the moment:) )This pic is of the last of my roses for the season - lasted over a week in the vase!! Amazing...for any of my flowers to last long!!!

We also had a lunar eclipse last week - took a pic of the moon before it happened - but it doesn't really show how bright the moon was - it was soooo bright that you couldn't see any stars in the sky!!! Anyway...made a wish so just waiting for it to come true now :)A friend has two guinea pigs - girls...then one turned to a boy.... and this littlie is the result!! How cute?Well, better go and get the tea prepared - celebrating my Dads birthday today :))
