"Makes Me Happy Monday"

Hello and Happy Monday.

I can't believe how quickly these postings come around. Lots to be happy about over this past week.



Lucy came bearing gifts from Lisa. Thank you so much Lisa for the bundles of fabric cross stitch kits buttons and patterns. I  already have plans for the bundle of blue fabric.


I also got this bundle of threads and buttons from Chris. Thanks Chris. I used one of the threads in the "Friendship" Bolster.

Ainsley and Lucy.

On Saturday we celebrated Lucy's Birthday with a family lunch at a restaurant/brewery  in the Swan Valley. The meal was huge so we didn't need tea that night.

I have been watching this sunflower budding then opening up in the vegie garden.



Doesn't it just make you want to smile!!

Happy Monday.
Bev C
