This time to take my parents to get their Dutch passports renewed… and take DS 18 to college! I’m starting to get to know my way around NSW! Well, one road at least 🙂
Friday Night with Friends
…last Friday I joined in for the first time this year with FNwF. I was working on these little zippy bags that I started before Christmas:
I actually finished them on Saturday morning and gave them away to the ladies in my Saturday quilt group… and forgot to take a pic of them done. Sorry, you’ll have to trust me on this – the six pouches did not become UFOs, amazing eh?!
This time on our trip to Sydney we made a stop in Yass to catch up with a dear friend from Arabia, who is now home in Canberra. Yvonne is a great quilter, who helped me out in my little shop in Arabia… we were very good at getting into mischief with new projects… the difference between us was that she finished what we started and I didn’t!
Yvonne brought one of her finished tops to show me, she is very good at needleturn, have a look here:
More about this quilt next week…. It was lovely to catch up, and we plan on meeting up again in the Aussie wintertime later this year…
Today we did the Dutch embassy visit…
It was a help for Mum and Dad that I had been there before and could show them where they had to go. It all went smoothly and we even had time for a nice cuppa:
And… ahem… lemon tart….
Gave us energy at least 🙂
Tomorrow I’m taking DS to his new home… will be interesting to see where he will be staying for the next year… I’ll let you know how it goes 🙂
