There has been a little stitching going on while we have been busy partying. I have managed to finish another little stitchery from United Stitches. This is a slow project and is stitched when there isn't anything else on the go.

We have had a few celebrations over the last few weeks as Benny and Sammy turned 5. Very hard to believe those tiny babies are so big now. We celebrated as a family on their actual birthday.
Then yesterday they had a Ninja Turtle party with some friends. It was good fun and they had a very lovely time. I cut out lots of Ninja Turtle masks and their Mum made some great Ninja Turtle games and created turtle shells from foil trays!
Auntie Lyndal iced the cakes (baked by Mummy) and they looked very good and tasted yummy too.

We have had a busy week in chilly Canberra. Ma had been on a lovely cruise with her daughter, Janelle, to warm places and then came to very cool Canberra for a visit. It was lovely to see her and especially as it was her birthday and Bruce's too. I didn't get too many photos but Bruce wanted to take some studio shots so we have those and they are lovely. We did enjoy cake, some meals out and lots of time with the little people too.

Paddy and I headed to Sydney on the bus on Wednesday for our visit to the Sydney Craft show. After we checked into our apartment and had some lunch we headed to the Queen Victoria Building for a wander around. We also made sure we visited Morris and Sons, which is a lovely shop with gorgeous wool!
Thursday was the highlight as we walked to Darling Harbour for the Craft show. We enjoyed the day of shopping and also enjoyed seeing the quilts. It was a good show and we did manage to find quite a few things to buy. The only downside was the long queues for coffee! Hopefully they might address that problem next time. We enjoyed visiting Anni Downs' stall and BeBe Bold especially.
I did take some pictures of the quilts. Hope you enjoy them.
