Hi all again at last I am back here
Oh what a long time it seems, a month at least.
So much has happenened and I have been and done so much, just can't keep up.
The picture above is from where I probably left off my blog.
We had a Xmas in July party with our Red Hat ladies group.
What a marvellous day it was .
We are still talking about it.
It was the best one I had been to , considering I had never been to one before LOL.
But it was so good.
It was a Sunday morning when
we started off at our Convenors home. for morning tea, the left hand picture, some of the ladies.
We all went by cars up to our closest valley called the Eungella valley which is some miles out of town and passes thru a lot of small rural places, and rises up to the rainforest, but the going up part is called the valley.
However we stopped along the way in one small place that has a great Op shop where you can delve for ages and find all sorts of pre loved articles at good prices. Needless to say we all came away with booty.
I bought another Red hat !! and a lovely small handbag for a friends B/day, and a few small articles that took my fantasy.We arrived at the Gallery where the lunch was to be held and as you can see it was really set up for a Xmas celebration. The middle picture.
I have heard that some people dont think much of having Xmas in July as it may take away the usual meaning of Xmas. but where we live, it is an occasion as our Xmases are so HOT and it does seem not quite right to be having all that heavy Xmas food in the hot weather.
Most Australian these days opt for Salads and colds so its not too bad.
Anyway we had fun and that is what our Red Hatters are about.
I have met some lovely ladies with it too and that is what it is about.
Just last week I met 10 new people in one week.
I thought how amazing.
I was standing at the Checkout getting my groceries assembled when a man talked to me.
He was standing there with his wife and a friend.
Well they offered to take me home.
Must have looked like the typical old lady struggling along, altho I dont ever feel like that.
I travel by bus , so when he asked me where I lived and said a pity we go the other way, well I thanked him for the thought, they deciced to take me home anyway.
How lovely of them. I do manage well but it was a kind thought. Dont worry I looked hard at them to be sure! Pity you have to think like that these days isn't it?
So there are always more good people in this world than bad, so my faith in people is always as I think it is. Still good!!
The others I have met were at a little Art group who meet at a small cafe have lunch and do their things . One was doing Prudence Mapstone crochet knitting , one was embroidering a vest so lovely , patch work inside and wool handembroidery on the outside, and another was doing basket making and on the wall was the paintings of another gal who wasnt there but that is what it was all about paintings and craft on the walls.
I might get a picture of it some time.
I took my cloth dolls and my polymer clay to demonstrate and of course people who have not seen it are amazed what you can do with it. So now I am going to another Art group to show them and possibly get some more people interested in Polymer clay.
Apart from that, after the Xmas in July day, I went away on the plane to see my D Jacqui and family and had a ball for about 10 days down there, saw some friends that I do polymer clay with, down that way, and came home to teaching a new person some basics in polymer clay which we are back into next week.
So the right hand picture here is of some of the ladies enjoying or day out.
Whacko for next year I'll be there weather and health permitting.
LOL. Merry Xmas.So this is where I leave off and will be back soon as I still have a lot to say to catch up.
That's me tho, cant keep me down.
When I fly with my Butterflies I really fly.
Bye for now
Love and kisses
