A special visit – part 4 the sewing day

On the last day before we took Anne back to Malcolm, a group of us met at our friend Kaye’s beautiful home for a stitching afternoon.  We each brought a little something to share for afternoon teaincluding Karen’s famous pavlova and chatted as we stitched, the noise level rising and falling as conversations went from general to intimate groups.

I know you’ll want to see what we were all working on…..

Kaye’s been working on her peacocks

I think Anne enjoyed her day!  And such a great way to end her visit.  Thanks my friend (and Malcolm) for coming all this way to see us and spend time with us.  It was fabulous!!
