Has anyone heard....

....of the Langoliers???? Stephen King wrote a short story about them....they eat up time...however lately I think they are ahead of me and have already eaten it before I get there!!!

So - this is the 50TH POST!!! How about that??? So if you havent already left a comment, please do to be in the give away draw :))) Good luck to you all xx

Last weekend was the bi-annual Snobs and Slobs weekend away. A great weekend was had by all as usual.We managed to give a couple of old farts refuge for the weekend:) Good job they came with their own siren suits!The world was put right again for the next 6 months while we stitched (not a lot if any bitching this time round)Charades was played on Saturday night. This was Quilty Gals rendition of a book....can you guess which book??? Only one of the Slobs guessed the book - The Bible - so I think that means the rest of us are either heathens or thick!!!We consumed faaaarrrr tooooo much chocolate (wont tell you all exactly how much - but to give a hint - there was 7 of us and we ate more than 7 Family size blocks!!) How disgusting is that? even I think its bad and I am a chocoholic! :)
This was Friday nights supper...This was Saturday nights supper....Sunday we managed to lug our overfed bodies out of bed and get ready for an afternoon of retail therapy. We headed off to Kirkbride Quilts at Strathalbyn. I believe we all delved into our purses and made them a little lighter going out than they were when we went in! I bought one of Cinderberry Stitches patterns - Twelve Red Robins. Lovely little pattern to stitch (not quite finished yet tho) These little items are the ones that we purchased to do from our weekend away at the Inspired Stitches convention. I changed the doily and made it into a little bag for my little great niece (the girls sit and wait for a bus on the house stairs with their bags and goodies!!) Now it is time to get on with finishing some projects ready for the next posting. Happy stitching and stay warm xx

I have The Langoliers on tape and watched it again just a couple weeks ago. An interesting concept!
I don't think you had enough chocolate. Do you?
