Yesterday I attended the Murrumbidgee Lachlan Group CWA luncheon at Barellan. We had a beautiful chinese lunch. And guess who the winner of the group raffle was - yes me!!!And this was the prize - a hand made glass plate these photos don't do justice to it
The creator of this beautiful piece is Elaine Marshall - and you can see all of her beautiful creations by clicking on the link. Make sure you have a look at the beautiful vases that Elaine makes. Her shop is in West Wyalong, NSW. Then the lucky Door Prize was drawn and guess who won that also - yes me!! I was feeling a little bit embarrassed about winning both. The prize was a lovely gift basket full of biscuits and chocolates. So yesterday became the highlight of my week!!!
Naughty me... sitting in my FQ stash and in my cup cupboard are 3 gifts that I won in a giveaway over at the lovely DASHA'S blog (pop over and check out this sweet blog)
two beautiful FQ's above and this beautiful mug from Maxwell Williams - 'Birds of The World' (Katherine castle). Now these little beauties are Fairy Wrens.

When I opened the parcel my mother and sister were there and, get this, THEY thought it might be a good idea for me to 'gift' my 'gift' to one of them. Strange how great minds were not thinking alike that day!! This cup was MINE I told them and mine it is. Thank you so much Dasha I love all 3 gifts!! 
What has everyone been up to for Valentines Day?? In this cards were exchanged and we decided to go out for tea. A spur of the moment decision to go out to tea on Valentines Day is  a silly decision - we checked out 7 dining establishments - looked in the windows of 4 as we drove past, and actually parked the car and went inside 3 of them, AND they were all FULL!!!! So we went and bought fish and chips, and some seafood salad, and came home and had our Valentines Dinner!!! Lesson learnt! At least I was saved from cooking and cleaning up!!


  1. HAHAHAHAH - I have to admire your Mom and Sister for giving it a try, Lucky Girl!!! Happy Valentine's Day - it's all beautiful. Glad you didn't have to cook (and restaurants here are PACKED on Valentine's Day, mainly because of people in town to get married...I ALWAYS have to cook.). XOXO

  2. We have celebrated going on the night before St Valentines day (cos thats when teh babysitter was free) and highly recommend it! Dont suggest you try and buy flowers the day after though! Fish and chips sounds good though!

  3. I hope you went and bought a lottery ticket since you seem to be on a good luck winning streak. The mug is beautiful, I'd be wanting you to gift it on too.

  4. You seem to be on a winning streak Kerrie. Enjoy your goodies.
