I have been busy packing my bag ready to head off for a week of relaxation on this ship!!! Trying very hard to figure out which books and what stitching or knitting or whatever to take! Such a worry!

Classes started again on Wednesday this week and it was great to catch up with all the ladies that usually come and some new ones too. A few of them had lovely show and tell to share. Jayne had finished her little Christmas bag and it looks really lovely. I just love the fabrics she has used from one of Anni Downs' ranges.

Benny and Sammy are growing up so quickly and so enjoy parks! We are so lucky to have a school and several parks in walking distance from us. I wasn't there this day but just love these photos of the little men interacting.

It has been nice this week to have some time for a bit of stitching and crochet. There were things that I should have been stitching but it was nice to work on these ongoing projects. Here are the front and the back of the bag we did at the Helen Stubbings workshop a few weeks ago. Now to sew it together!
Fiona, for giving me the pattern for my birthday in April. It has been fun to make with DMC perle 8 thread and a small crochet hook!

I seem to have been out and about lately but I have still been stitching. There has been some secret stitching for the Stitching on the lake day in November so I can't share that yet. I have finished these two projects, the canvas work and the needlecase (from our retreat), ready to teach next term at Hobbysew.
The little boys liked their appliqued shirts so I made a few more. These plain shirts from Target are great to applique.
Little Audrey was at stitching this week with her Mummy and sister and she looked so gorgeous in this delightful pinafore that Mum made for her! The little appliqued and embroidered pictures on the front and the back are just beautiful!

Last Thursday, it was chilly and rainy here and we had decided to head to Floriade. I must admit I thought it was a bit of a crazy idea but in the end it was terrific. There were less people and the rain eased and even though the flowers were a little dozy from the rain, we had a lovely time.
email me if you would like to be added to the waiting list. We are so sorry that some have missed out.

After the class on Sunday we headed to Merimbula to stay the night and then to go whale watching on Monday morning. It had been a busy weekend as the little men came to have dinner and sleep over on Saturday night (I get a little worried about them and don't sleep as well as normal), I went to the class and then the 3 hour trip to Merimbula. It was definitely worth it as the whales were amazing and so were the dolphins and the weather was perfect. It was a wonderful experience. Thankfully I don't get seasick but some people had a rough time.
