Happy No Birthday Party....fun!

Not alot happening here, as I am still working on my DJ quilt, but
today it was time out for a bit of fun with my Embroidery Girlfriends.. ...these photos are for the girls!
Now if only I can get the pics to stay where I want them!

We had a "No Birthday Party" for us all...sounds crazy, but here's how it went....because our birthdays are spread out over the year, some just before Christmas, some during school holidays etc...we find it hard to keep track of our birthdays...either forget to check our diaries or are away on holidays, you know how time just seems to get away from you, before you know it the year is over!
Margaret suggested we all celebrate our birthdays on the same day, we agreed to celebrate them in the middle of the year , the first week in June... and we were to wear a hat, which I forgot to do!
We all had a girl's name to buy a small gift for....we are to only buy one gift and in return we would all get a gift back.
We were invited to Janet's lovely home...here is her dining room.
The shadow of the tree is actually painted on the wall by her DD from the reflection of the tree ornament itself...

Here is Janet, out hostess for the morning..
She received a lovely mirror compact and covered address book from Golda.


Here we have Melanie and Golda...Melanie wearing a funny hat!

That's me with my gift of a Mermaid ornament from Pam...

Phew...What a great morning we had, some cake, a little drink of bubbly...and we sang Happy No Birthday to us all..

Our combined ages tally up to 508 years...
No, this birthday does not add another year to our ages!!


In fun and friendship..♥

  12. That would be a good idea for my sewing group. I forget most of the birthdays throughout the year. I will have to suggest it.
