A Lovely Day With Friends

Yesterday, Mel and I headed over to Helen's for a day of stitching. We also got to meet Helen's husband Jim and her friend, Sue. Mel had brought young Henry along. He was such a good boy we hardly knew he was there. 
 
Helen had made us a delicious lunch and due to
her having some tests later in the day, she wasn't
able to eat any of it herself!
 We had so much to talk about that only Helen managed to do some stitching while we ate! She also gave us a little applique lesson. It was wonderful to see my two lovely friends both feeling much better and being able to enjoy each others company.
Thank you Helen for being such a lovely hostess.
Noel and I are off to the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo 
this afternoon, so no stitching for me today. 
It should be wonderful!

Hello Christine,

What a special day, just noticed you are all colour co-ordinated. Love the stitching hanging on the wall. Enjoy the Tattoo, my sister is going when it gets to NZ.

Happy days.

I'm sure the Tattoo was brilliant Christine - I love to watch it on tv each year.
There's nothing better than spending time with friends & a special joy for it to happen when ill-health impedes things - precious times indeed.
