I have been truly blessed to have some wonderful womenfriends in my life who are very talented and have been there for me throughout good and bad times. I thought I might every so often showcase some of them. I first met SUE GROVES years ago as our Husbands are in the same line of business. I knew she was creative but never really knew how much till we went on a holiday to Europe some years ago to do with our businesses. I had seen her sketching things whilst standing waiting for buses and in queues at tourist spots and finally went up to look over her shoulder. I was truly amazed!!!! She was keeping a tour journal and I looked at what she was sketching and what her and I were looking at and it was the same. All done within a few minutes!!!! WOW!!!! I have some prints of her journal sketches that I will show at a later date but thought I would show you her quilts and paintings. When my beloved Father Ron died she just knocked on my door one day with a beautiful Kokeshi Doll painting because she knows I love them (so does she too!!). Not a bad feat because she lives in Melbourne and the painting was also framed beautifully. How lucky am I to have Sue in my life.

here we are having dinner at Kylie Kwong's Restaurant in Sydney

So here goes the eye candy ......... ENJOY!!!!!!

OOOoooh!!! Did I forget to tell you she is also a World class cook and we both love the same wines as well. Stay tuned ladies over the coming weeks I will have more talented ladies to showcase.
