Weekend in review

 a couple of hours it will be time to go to work and the weekend will be over ... and what a weekend it was ...

Friday evening was spent quietly at home while waiting for a call from Connor to collect him from a friend's house ~ The call came to pick him up at 11 and when we got home we fell into bed.

Such a cute addition to the group!!!
Saturday morning I met Alison at her house and we drove through to our friend Tanya in Pretoria for a crafting morning.  Leonie met us there and we met two other ladies.  I did some knitting, Ali, Tanya and the other ladies all got out their crochet hooks and worked on their projects and Leonie worked on embroidering with beads ... she is amazingly creative.

Ali is really into crocheting and is getting seriously good at it!
 Leonie's gorgeous bead embroidery

Tanya is busy with many projects including these gorgeous squares.

I took along my knitting ... this is a baby's blanket which I have been knitting on for a while ... perhaps I can keep it for when my precious niece Taryn has a baby (good idea!!!!)

We left Tanya at 12 and drove through to Ludwig Roses and had lunch and then shopped for roses ... I got two yellow roses in memory of my precious friend Joan who was my 'Yellow Rose of Texas'.  

Wouldn't mind having a party in this gorgeous hall
 Leonie and I tried this rose flavoured drink ... it was really yummy! 
 Ali enjoyed an iced coffee.

I had a German treat which was delicious

 My gorgeous roses ... I will think of Joan every day when I leave my house and see these beauties.

We popped into Garden World on the way back to Ali's house and after unpacking the car we had a relaxed cuppa coffee and then I hit the road.  After dinner my hunny sat with me and watched 'The Christmas Choir'. There were LOTS of fireworks but thankfully they finished around 8.

Sunday ... Richard had wanted to go for a ride on his bike but damaged a seal so instead we went to Fego for breakfast after which I took Mom grocery shopping.  Wendy, Graeme and the boys popped past for a cuppa coffee and I then got to my scrapbooking desk and got a couple of pages done on the new project.
All in all a great weekend!
