SOME DAYS JUST...

... go right and to-day was one of those ( for me anyway!) x

Sue ... www.kiwikidspage.blogspot.com .. and her husband Dave, are visiting the UK from Melbourne. Sue rang this morning to say they were coming to call on me as they travelled South xx YAY x

SO... the choice was .. clean up .. or make a cake ! I am sure you are all well aware of what I went with..


YEP .. I made a cake x

Mind you I could have cleaned up as well... but hey! I was not going to move the ornaments !! lol

WELL... I was beginning to think they had changed their minds when there was a knock at the door ....it was the postman!.... bringing me some Christmas fabrics to play with ..


at the same time the phone was ringing! OH NO! they had taken a detour from Manchester and went across instead of down  country and found themselves in ... LIVERPOOL! Never mind they were now in Crewe and on the way xx


We had a wonderful visit .. that went by far to quickly x I have to say that every quilter I have met .. in the flesh .. has been a lovely person .. and Sue was no exception x OH! and her husband was lovely too.. when he could get a word in sideways xxx lol x poor fella x

I had wanted to give Sue a little pressy .. so ...




.....a bag it was .. squashy to fit flat into her flight bag on the way home x I filled it with LOTS of sweets so that Dave could join in the fun x...


SO.. if a blogger says they are going to be in your area .. MEET UP x and your day will be wonderful too x

I had a wonderful time Diane, the time went so quickly!! Mind you we would have had more time if my navigation skills were better!! I am glad you made the sponge instead of cleaning , it was beautiful and was enjoyed for lunch, afternoon snack and David had some for breakfast the next day!!! One happy traveller 😆 I am so glad we got to meet you, thank you again for the lovely bag and goodies.

Meeting fellow bloggers is always such fun and I'm sure that Sue and Dave enjoyed the cake more than a dusted house.
