Family

I haven't posted the grandies for a while. They came for a swim one warm day but sadly it has been too cool lately. The water that day was too cool for me!







 Here are a few others from the last few weeks.

Lovely work...

I forgot to share some lovely show and tell from last week. It was lovely to see Marlene and she shared this amazing hardanger tablecloth that her sister made for her birthday! This picture doesn't do this justice as it was so beautiful and this is only one little bit.
 We just loved this little quilt that Margaret is making using a panel by Anni Downs!
 Several of the ladies are making Natalie Bird's lovely new BOM (you can get it at Hobbysew). Judy has finished her first block and we all felt that it is so much prettier in real life!
 Great to see Lynn back after her holidays. She had been to Lynette Anderson's day in Queensland and had made these lovely projects since then! Both were so beautiful.

 Natalie came too and shared this amazing bunting designed by Rosalie Dekker. It was a lot of work but is such a special decoration.

A little stitching...

Not much to report as I have been keeping up with my Stitch Therapy and have started a little Christmas gift stitching. Can't show that yet! Here are my latest blocks.






 Audrey has just finished this amazing embroidery that was featured in the latest Molly Makes magazine. She made it a little bigger and stitched it with 1 strand. It is so amazing!
 Here are some of the lovely flowers in our garden. It is warming up finally for Spring.

Progress...

I have continued working on my Stitch Therapy blocks. Here are the latest ones.They are fun to stitch each day but there is still that feeling that it has to be done! Just a bit of pressure.





 I do need to start thinking about Christmas stitching for gifts. This little quilt was started a little while ago. The pattern from Giggle Buttons and some of the special buttons were purchased many years ago. It was a fun stitch and I am pleased with the result. It needed making to use some of my button stash! I even hand quilted most of it.

And I made some scones!

Stitching away

I have been stitching. My Stitch Therapy is up to date! Here are some recent blocks.





 I also finished my chatelaine by Anni Downs started at Stitch the Day away in Queensland.
 We had the little miss last Tuesday and we had an adventure on the bus to the library and the shops. It was good fun and there was a bit of reading on the way home.

Family...

We managed to get a few pictures with the kids and Ma and even us!



Ma is on her way home now on the train....actually she would be nearly there. She is amazing for 88 years old!
