La Dolce Vita

There are times in you life when everything just seems to fall into a happy hum. Last friday i was fortunate to have arranged to meet up with Cardy Girl for lunch,   it took me just over an hour to get to the patchwork shop we had arranged to meet at.


on the way up,  i had a smooth run and was bopping along in my Little Corolla, Katy Scarlett  (yep she's red) listening to (singing  at full volume) to the Beatles, just can't do a road trip without good music. I arrived safely just before Cardy and her friend Lea and was still humming (on the inside) whilst we wandered around the shop, and what a great shop it was, heaps of really nice fabrics and some really nice quilt kits. so if your passing through Singleton it is definitely worth popping into busyneedles .



the view into the cafe


after gathering our little bundles of  purchases (some of us had bigger bundles than others) We wandered down to worn out wares, a lovely little cafe with lot's of really lovely bits and peices for sale.....


now to make you drool........



Cardy Girl and Lea enjoyed these very yummy looking pumpkin stacks


i had this very tasty, smoked salmon open sandwich


and this very interesting cup of tea

like the good girls we are we sacrificed the dessert menu to go shopping instead
all that walking, looking is great for the waist line

then after a little bit slower trip home (still singing might i add)
i headed on over to my friends Sticky's for a BBQ
and then we headed off to watch 
our Mighty Knights
defeat the Rabbitoh's


all in all a really great day.....
hope your hands are working on a project you love

Ciao

What a great day you had- lunch and shopping with blogging friends and then the win by the Knights to send them in to the playoffs- very exciting...
