The Tabinda Lunch!!!

TABINDA - that's Tasha, Burn and Linda - cool eh!!!!      On Saturday we had our Christmas lunch (postponed from Christmas!).   It was decided to have it for my birthday instead.    Linda provided the starter.   Dips with baby tomatoes, sticks of cucumber, peppers and carrots.  They were lovely.  Opening pressie time.  Ooooh they were all fabulous.     Then it was my turn, roast pork, roast spuds, brocolli, carrots and parsnips.   If I say so myself it was as lovely as the starter.   Then it was Tasha's turn.   Chocolate Mousse!!  Delish!
Here is a pic of Linda (on the left) eating her dinner and a picture of her gift.   It is a sewing machine made from a thick wire and some hooks along the bottom.  There is a reel of gold cotton which is threaded through the heart on the left hand side down to the needle.  It's terrific.   Thank you Linda.     Tasha (on the right) with her roast and a pic of her gifts.    There is a fabulous book by Arne & Carlos of knitted dolls with complete wardrobes, a "When stuff is" diary/date book (you write in it like when you were 12!) and a packet of tissues with ""We do not gossip, we distribute vital information".   She also gave me a fridge magnet which is up in the cabin and it's tooooooo wet and tooooooo cold to go and get!!!!!  Thank you Tasha.  Lucky girl eh?
I also received this gorgeous book from Sam.  On her blog she explains that the cover is done with the Gelli Plate technique.   It's really clever.   I have to ask you, Sam, what is the paper inside?   It's great, looks like a linen type.   I shall be using this for pics of my, and my fellow crafters' work.  Or I may use it for pics and journalling our weekends away this year.  Actually that's not a bad idea!!!!  Thank you Sam.
I treated myself to a massage this morning with Ruth and have booked another two.   A three for two deal.    I feel quite vigorated....     Ruth is having a website built so I will link it in as soon as it's up and running.   
Right I think that's it for the moment.
Thanks for stopping by.
