A bit of stitching

 Thought it was time to blog again though not too much has happened. It has turned freezing here again after a few weeks of very pleasant weather. We loved having Ma to visit last week but sadly didn't take any photos. She is always a pleasure to have visiting. We enjoyed shopping, eating and watched a few shows together. On the stitching front, I have been continuing working on Amanda's Daisy sewalong and have been enjoying all the english paper piecing.

The new Homespun came too recently so I have started the blocks for Part 5 of the Owl and Hare Hollow BOM.

Just found this funny one of Ma trying on a dressing gown we bought for Janelle.
Here are our very pretty azaleas in the garden.

Stitching and other things

 As my Owl and Hare BOM is up to date, I have enjoyed stitching some other things. Just love how this Tully Tote turned out. Lovely pattern by Natalie Bird and amazing gift from Fiona.

I have also been tempted and given in to making Amanda's lovely stitchalong on Instagram. All paper pieced and using liberties so no wonder I couldn't resist.
We all just loved this amazing bag that Jayne has made as a gift. What an amazing gift.
We headed to the city on Saturday night to celebrate our dear friend, Garrick's 70th birthday. It was a fun night.

The boys came over on Monday and had their first swim of the season! 
Just a few pictures of recent times with the children. The little miss is in Japan at the moment having a fabulous time.
