Holidays....

We went away on Monday 8th October and headed to Corrimal to spend some time with our daughter and the little men. It was fun but it rained for most of the time we were there except for a windy time at the beach on Monday afternoon and on Tuesday when the weather was better. The boys loved the beach.














On Wednesday it was really wet so we went to Inflatable world for some fun bouncing!

Bruce and I also had to pack to go to a funeral on Tuesday afternoon. I want to write about it here as Uncle Alan was such a lovely gentleman. We celebrated his amazing life of 94 years.

Stitching....

Just have to share some lovely stitching from some very clever ladies. Heather has designed and stitched these amazing pictures of special views of Canberra. Can you spot the tower? I just love these.



 At class last week, Margaret brought in so many projects she has been working on. These are just 2 of them.

 I have been stitching too. I finally made up this book cover from a pattern by Anni Downs. I am keeping my Here There and Everywhere patterns in it.
 I also made up these decorations from the lovely Kathy Schmitz book, Stitches from the Yuletide.
My BOM came last week and am so enjoying making part 5.

Spring

Spring is certainly here now even though the evenings are still sometimes cool. We had a few lovely outings last week. Bruce and I had a lovely visit to Floriade.








I also had a great day at the Tulip Top Farm with my study friends. The day was perfect and I do enjoy seeing the flowers amidst the blossoms and trees.







On the Sunday before last we also had a great day with Alice and her mummy at the Sailing Club Family day! It was amazing with 4 jumping castles which were free, free popcorn, fairy floss, face painting and even a boat ride around the lake. We did buy some delicious fish and chips for lunch.
