What a week it has been!
Two trips to Townsville, three days at work, a home to run and a teenager to ferry back and forth every day, a trip to the doctors, the dentist, and the pathologist, two gifts to finish...and I did try to get some of my own sewing done but it just wasn't happening. Meanwhile....
Princess Sophie has been spending her time 'lounging'...
...and playing with Bob-the-Dog, who has a new toy (fondly known as Shorn The Sheep)....
...which Sophie loves to snatch off him and run away with so he will play chase with her!
At 6am each morning a thundering herd of elephants can be heard charging up and down along the hardwood floor of the hall outside our room....well, it sounds like elephants, but it's really these two rascals playing chase. Sleeping in these days is but a fond memory.
Mr E and I have been out on the motorbike again today. We rode to a tiny little town with a population of about 20 residents (common in our neck of the woods) known as Balfe's Creek. We looked over a bike that was for sale but decided it wasn't what we wanted, so had a cold drink and shared a pack of Twisties before the return ride home. (You can see photos of our last visit to Balfe's Creek from June last year HERE ) I am finding life so exhilirating these days, and I know that is from this time spent cruising the highways with my man. :-)
We have some Show & Tell today!
....and Celia has also finished Verse 2.
We are having a run on verse 2 today, aren't we? Here is Nancy's!
They are all so different, and so pretty!
Has anyone stitched verse 3 yet?
Thank you for all the heartfelt birthday wishes. How lovely you all are!
My good friend Fee spoiled me with a box of luscious goodies. I thought I was opening an Aladdin's Cave of treasures....
...and the next day I received this beautiful parcel from Katrin, with a Tilda doll!
I was very spoiled, and I love everything. :-)
Thank you so much, girls!
I have been wanting to share something 'different' for my Give Thanks BOM this week, but time was against me, and I am flying down to Brisbane on Thursday so you will have to be patient while I carve out some pockets of sewing time in March. I know you understand.
PS: My original Shabby Roses quilt that Pam won in the January Auction to raise money for the Queensland Flood relief has arrived in the US! You can read about Pam's excitement HERE.
It's lovely to know my 'baby' is cherished by such a lovely lady!
