Ma and Pa in Canberra

It was so nice to be able to have Ma and Pa visiting this weekend. Pa hadn't been well enough to visit for a while but he has improved and it has been great to see him feeling better and able to do more. They head home today but we have had a very nice time with them. They came down especially to see our kids' houses as they hadn't ever seen them. Ma enjoyed a couple of swims in the pool too.
 Yesterday, Ma and I went to the Renaissance exhibition at the National Gallery. It was very interesting and it is amazing to think the paintings has been done over 400 to 500 years ago. The colours were so bright on many of them.
 We just had to have coffee and cake here and I took the posters as photography wasn't allowed in the exhibition.

 On the way to the coffee shop we saw these amazing angels/space men hanging!
 Last week, I was motivated to start the next block of Scandinavian Christmas. Here is Santa almost appliqued.
 I have started the embroidery. I thought I would be almost finished then bit there is a fair bit of work on the borders!

So glad to see Ma and Pa in Canberra. Wish we could have been there too, but a bit far to come home from Turkey! xxxx
