A wedding, Father's day and some stitching

Yesterday we were helpful grandparents and helped with the little men at a wedding. Mummy was a bridesmaid and so we were minding boys so they could have their pictures taken with the bride and groom and then be whisked off to bed at home. They were very good but it was busy keeping them amused when they were quite tired and not all that well either. it was a perfect day though for a wedding.
It was a good feeling to get them in the photograph and then we headed home with them....feeding them cheese and sandwiches and singing loudly to keep them awake till we made it home.

 The wedding was at the Botanical gardens which is lovely but the grass was wet and there were so many little stones etc for little men to want to eat!

Today is Father's day and Pa helped Amy create this picture with the little men for their Daddy. So cute!

 It feels so long since I have blogged but I have been stitching. Here is block 3 of the Chateau Hexagon BOM. Great to be up to date as block 4 comes out next week.
I have also finished stitching the last side of the Vignette quilt. Now for time and inclination to do all the piecing!

 I have also been stitching some of the smaller retreat projects ready for class next term. These need sewing together too.

It is always fun to do a little canvas work.
 So lovely to see Karen's Whimsy and Wonder at the shop on Wednesday. It looks fantastic.

 Sue has also been busy with some intricate counted thread work!
