Catching up with friends.....

Saturday before last saw me and my sister Anne heading off to Gisborne to meet up with some very special ladies, above is a photo of what was in my lucky dip parcel I brought for our swap the theme this time was "Birds" and Elyte was the lucky one to pick this from our swap parcels.

This is the beautiful swap item I received from Jo, isn't it gorgeous....beautiful as well as extremely practical. Thanks JO I love it :)


And of course what would the day be without some funny business and shenanigans LOL....good one Marg!

Then it was Christine's turn to photo bomb our attempts at taking  a serious photo, should have known this wouldn't have been an easy task with these gals involved :)




Here is a photo of some the beautiful swap items.....


And the rest of the swap items, these girls all do such beautiful work and it is such a fun day when we get together...... I can't wait for our next catch up in May bring it on I say :)

It was such a fun day and I love my bag. It has been out with me a few times already.
