Wednesday already? The weeks this year seem to fly by! Only 2 days left in this school term and then a wonderful 2 weeks holiday break for Mr E, Blossom and myself...poor Sam still has to work, but that's the adult life if you're not a teacher.
Before I tell you what Mr E and I are about to embark upon, I want to show you some gorgeous Show & Tells!
Jeanette has finished her blocks from my Shabby Roses quilt pattern, and the top is all pieced. These are not colours or fabrics she would ordinarily use, but I think it's really pretty! :-)
Dawn has finished the 4th verse block from my 2011 'Give Thanks' BOM...
...and Allie has finished her hanger, plus verses 1 & 2...
(... I am eyeing off that pretty vintage button, Allie!)
I have two new verses for 'Give Thanks' almost ready to share, so check back at the end of the week. :-)
Thanks for sharing your photos, ladies!!
Princess Sophie loves to lie along the kitchen sink....
...sit IN the kitchen sink...
...or stand above the kitchen sink.
It's her favourite place during the day, but of a night she likes to lay above whoever is sitting on the couch, and her little paw will rest on your shoulder. Blossom was her favourite the other night...
And whilst I have Blossom on screen, let me show you what she did yesterday!
Shopped till she dropped...well, till she ran out of money. ;-)
We had to do a quick run to Townsville, so to make the trip worthwhile (and because she hardly ever gets to go there) I let her loose on the shopping centres.
Since she is doing Grade 12 this year our times out alone have been sparse - school, homework, and her part-time job at Woolies take a large chunk of her time, and of course, being almost 17 (next month) she has a few close friends she likes to chill out with some weekends.
She is such a wonderful young woman and these few hours spent alone with her yesterday were very special indeed. We sang all the way home to our favourite CDs, laughed and cried as memories were stirred by familiar tunes - we simply relished each moment together.
My grandson's quilt is all finished! I washed and dried it so that it had that slightly 'used' feel about it - you know, that freshy laundered scent with a crinkly cotton effect? Perfect.
He should be snuggling into it by tomorrow, and hopefully his mama will send me a photo to share.
On the stitching side of life I am so excited by a set of new designs I am playing with ...
They will be called 'Affirmations', and they are for a new venture of 'Elefantz' that I hope to reveal in a couple of months. It's going to be very exciting!!
Time to head off to work, so better sign off. We're baking Easter Egg Muffins with the grade 8's today...oh to be so young and not concerned with calories! ;-)
PS: Oops, forgot the news about Mr E and I! If the weather improves next week we'll be riding all the way down to Brisbane to catch up with THIS lovely Nutter! It's a 2,600 klm round trip so some serious riding to be had. Yay!!
