Jean In the Middle

What a Sad but Also Happy week


of Friendship With Jean A real lady

We Started

with a group of girls having monthly luncheons

taking turns at one and an others homes.
We discovered a special interest in stitching so a group was started.

Sharing ideas of many projects...
Tuesday our last day


with Jean...

Here you can see Jean displaying her Tea Pot Hand Bags

Margret made this beautiful


remote Carrier

out of old jeans ..

Our sewing days around the table..... solved problems of the world and

each others....

Our Medication was taken home which was laughter ...

tears would just run down our faces....


we had High Tea
and that's when we all felt so sad....

Jean has a unit opposite

Charlestown Square


Which I believe

twice the size of


(Gold Coast)

So I can see Jean each morning

looking for bargains in the shops....

Jean said the guest room will be ready.....

Under the unit block is a coffee shop

What more could you need.

Well Jean thank you so much for the laughs

And special Friendship

Lovely High Tea

great conversation...
