Sues(birth)day .....

Today started like this!

The red sky was a warning as we had some pretty heavy showers and thunder and lightening throughout the day. It didn't dampen our spirits though as it was a much awaited Suesday and a special one to boot! It was t'other Sue's birthday today and by was she dressed to kill!

Yay!! It's Suesday!!

She took a few pics as we were on our way out this morning but I haven't got those to show you (ETA) and I have them now,  Sue hasn't blogged yet (working on it!), I think her boys were taking her out, so I'll get back to you with those. What I do have are these of us having lunch at the Yardhouse in Nawton, last time I was there I was carried out to the car, the wine was off!

Here's the birthday girl! Can you see what's pinned to her chest?

I made this for Sue yesterday, so that's why you didn't get to see it!

Some long haired layabout, I really do need a haircut..

Okay so we hit the oppies, hard and fast.....ready?
Hospice shop
Embroidery kit & rotary cutter

Embroidery fest! Tray cloth, gorgeous shawl and one of them beaded whojamaflops! Ya know what I mean, it's got beads and you put it over stuff....yeah you know!

Dump shop
Christmas quilt pattern and pottery thing to go in the mosaic box

Fabric and a bit of lace

Salvation Army, Grandview
I doubt the kit will be bows but the fabric & burlap will be used for something. Comfy sandals

Lastly Habitat for Humanity
I read the Ray Avery book with the book club, I can't believe I found a copy, crafty girls road trip, every crafty place you could hope to visit in NZ and Bridges of Madison County 
Dragonfly cushion cover to add to fabric stash.

Keep an eye out for Sue's latest post,  still not there yet as I publish this.

Enjoy your weekend. That's me, see ya next time.

Oh one more thing, hello to the new followers and for everyone's lovely comments.
I'll get around to your blogs tomorrow, I need to go find a wee dram of something.

  4. "last time I was there I was carried out to the car, the wine was off!"

    "I made this for Sue yesterday, so that's why you didn't get to see it! "

    You made her wear a pincushion?

    "I doubt the kit will be bows but the fabric & burlap will be used for something."

    Oh, I see another birthday pincushion in Sue's future.
