More pics from Australia

Doreen and Patsy were really kind to the two of us - our outing on the Tuesday included tea in the park - I kid you not - Doreen boiled water on a kerosene stand and we had tea and scones - it was raining and cold so the mid morning break and hot tea warmed us up. Here is a pic

Crafting Friends

Was able to meet some members of the Creativecuttlebuggers yahoo group whilst in Australia over Christmas. Doreen and Patsy came for tea the Monday after we arrived (brought everything but the teapot) and for next two weeks, proceeded to show us Brisbane and the surrounding area. Patsy had actually taken a week off work to be with us. The four of us had such fun - they were so good to include Morris (my hubby) in everything.......lots of site seeing - good food - and are you ready for this......they actually had two days of crafting planned for that first week. So Monday, Tues, and Wed - we saw spectacular sites......botanical gardens, rainforests, mountains - then Thursday and Friday we girls spent a day sharing and creating projects, crafting and of course shopping for crafting supplies. Was able to find daytimers before the Thursday, that was my project for the day. Actually ended up making several as small gifts. Thank you Doreen for the extra supplies!

We will never be able to repay these two ladies for their kindness - how lucky were we to meet two of the most generous ladies in Australia?
