Lovely visit from Tracy!

Yay! Today, Tracy came to visit me. It got cancelled the last time due to unforseen circumstances but she was able to come today even though it was just for the day. It was wonderful to at last meet my friend. We have been chatting away on the internet for a couple of years now but never actually met or even spoke in person.

When she arrived it was like meeting an old friend that you hadn't seen for a long time. We hugged and started chatting straight away! I made us a nice lunch of carrot and coriander soup with fresh bread rolls and salami and Leerdammer cheese. Yumm. We finished it off with some of my baking that I had done yesterday for Lily's school's Christmas fair:

Some cakes I made

Apple and carrot cakes, chocolate and cinnamon buns and crispy sesame and fruity nut squares!

Her mum came too and listened whilst we chatted on and on about our stitching. Tracy did her "show and tell" lol:

And here is the two of us together. There's me with my very red hair!!!!

me and tracy

Tracy gave me this gorgeous baby biscornu which she designed herself!! You can find it on her blog and on her freebie blog too. It is the sweetest little thing and is only about an inch wide!! It now sits on my tiny rag dolly's knee on my mantlepiece in my lounge. I so love it.

And to top it all off, she came loaded down with Christmas gifts for my children and also quite a few for me (naughty, naughty girl)!!!

Presents from Tracy

But secretly I love it because now I'll have some presents of my own to open on Christmas day. I have only got her one thing up to now so I will be going shopping and sending out a little parcel of parcels of my own!!

So all in all, this was a really lovely day. I only wish they could have stayed longer. Definitely will meet up again.
Oh and just to add, Lily's party went brilliantly - all the kids loved it. Thanks for all your comments concerning my "handiwork" on their faces lol.
