Well girls I am another year older as from last Wednesday so Mr. Bird very nicely decided to take me to Bathurst to shop at one of my favourite designer's stores. I was in Patchwork Heaven. I think I spent 2 hours dreaming at Annie Downs' shop,"The Home Patch." I was able to say hi to her and we had a chat about Nundle. That was lovely. She is such a nice person. I think I spent more than my birthday allocation.... Oh Well!
Loved Bathurst , the weather was perfect and the Autumn leaves were just so...ORANGE....
Hope you have all had a Happy Easter and enjoyed it the way you like to do best.
