Mosaicing Week-end

Yes, this is a bit late, but at least I am updating!!!

Last week-end, Shelley and I flew up to JHB to spend time with Desire to help her with preparation for the Scrapday in December. But ....... Desire was sneaky and did that work and we had to take part in another craft - yes that is correct - mosaicing!

Desire is making mosaiced frames for her in-laws 50th wedding anniversary and needed assistance with getting them done. There were about 18 of them. So while Shelley sat painting the back of the frames and the stands, Desire and I got stuck into the actual frames. I so enjoyed doing this, that I will definitely do a mosaic of sorts for someone soon!! You will have to check out Desire's blog when it is updated of what we did as I did not take my camera.

We also took some time out and went to the Montecasino Bird Park on the Sunday morning. We had breakfast first and then watched the bird show. It was fantastic and their birds were most delightful - similar to our Umgeni Bird Park, but much bigger. Once the show was over, we walked around the park looking at all the different varieties of birds they have. It was a lovely sunny day and when we got home we realised how hot it had been as we all had bright red faces, necks and arms!!

Then it was back to mosaicing and at about 6pm Desire and Conroy drove us back to the airport.

All in all a most enjoyable week-end.

Hint hint you are hey ... as yours truly is a bit slow on updating Doing Life. Don't worry, I am busy writing the report and editing the pics of our productive weekend. Thanks again Michelle and Shelley for being such great friends whose buttons I can press any which way when I am in a sneaky mood.

Andrea is right - good friends = good company = FUN!!!

Love, Tracy
