It seems ages since I posted some pictures of Benny, Sammy and Alice. The boys are so busy now that it is hard for Pa to get good pictures of them. I love these ones of the 3 of them recently at home. We weren't there but so lovely to see them all together and to compare their sizes! Don't the boys look huge? They are getting heavy to carry now too!

I have been stitching a bit these last few weeks. Hurrah....I have finally fused a centre block for the My Town quilt that was in the Homespun years ago. I have decided to make the centre the same size as the other blocks so my quilt (when it ever gets finished) will be smaller than the original.

Lyndal, Alice and I headed to the Craft show in Canberra last Friday. I think Alice enjoyed the show as she pretty much slept most of the time there! I must admit that I didn't buy much this time as I had just been in Sydney last month and I really didn't NEED anything. I only bought some wool to make little Alice a cardigan next year. It was still fun to go, to catch up with some friends and to have a nice day out. It was good to see the quilts too. Here are just a few of them.

We headed up to Sydney last Saturday to visit Ma and Pa and then on Sunday we went up for a night at the Hunter. We were very fortunate with the weather on Sunday as it cleared up and we were able to have lunch outside and then check out some of the sights.

So nice to catch up with the stitching and class girls yesterday and to see all their wonderful stitching! It is very motivating. Doreen has been doing some lovely canvas work and has made up this union jack tapestry on 18 count canvas and then has used it on this lovely bag for her mum.

After a few busy weeks getting ready for the retreat, it has been nice to do little stitching of my own. I started this block a little while ago and have now completed the embroidery. I am very happy with it even though it was lots of work!
