Jeni's Birthday Get Together

A lovely day celebrated at Maureen's home

As our birthdays are a few days apart

Tricia & I from the Salvation Army sewing group celebrate our birthday

We had such a grand day even the rain that we have had on the Gold Coast since I don't know how long since the sun has shone .....didn't even take away from the day

As you can see great gifts ...see the wheel cover ...........we have so many clever people in our group......must put on thinking cap for my gifts to them
