Today one of my dear friends turns 70.
We met at Toowoomba Quilters in the year 2000 and when I went to work at Blue Care, who should be also working there? Joan. We worked together for some 5 years and became firm friends.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOAN!!
We have been sneaking around behind her back and have put together a little photo/memento book for her. It will be a complete surprise when we present it to her at lunch today.
This is the front of the book. I did an ink drawing of Joan & her husband’s house. It is an historic old house built in the 1800’s which they love. I used my favourite pen the Sakura sepia pen.

My Zentangle page – All the items listed on the right appear somewhere in the doodle drawing. This concept was from my friend Kerry’s website, “All About Drawings .com”
Page by Alison. Alison has done a colour photocopy of the actual stitchery she has done for Joan. Can’t wait to see the real thing!!
On each page spread I have also included some photographs of Joan with her friends.
We have recently returned from a trip to the Gulf of Carpentaria. Our first camp spot was at Lake Waruma (near Eidsvold). We have voted it our most favourite campsite ever. The sunsets were amazing. There were no bugs, it was peaceful and warm and we had this area to ourselves.
I nicknamed it “On Golden Pond”!
The mix of colours changed as the sun started to disappear. The sky remained a beautiful turquoise blue – so many different colours appeared.
Until next time...........................Dianne
