A new day, and my granddaughter...

I've not introduced you to my sweet little granddaughter Frankie before.
Our family is rather private so I don't share a lot about them, but my daughter Aisha has two gorgeous daughters - Ebony & Frankie - and little Frankie has been accepted as an entrant in the Bond's Babysearch 2015 and we thought you might like to meet our cherub, and hopefully vote for her...
Go HERE to the voting page, ok?
Honest, she's adorable...and as I have not yet been able to hold her (we live a long way apart) having regularly updated photos to swoon over is a true blessing, but in a few months she may well be wrapped in Nana's waiting arms and my gushing will move into overdrive. Be prepared. 

As promised yesterday here are some peeks at my 'work in progress'.
The first is where I'm at on a design by my friend Cori Blunt of Chitter Chatter Designs. This will have it's full reveal during Mdm Samm's blog hop in April....details soon.

The project below is a progress peek at one of my own new designs, also being prepared for a blog hop (in June), but the full reveal will be late in April. I love spotty curtains and apple pie, don't you?
I'll close out this week on the blog with some photos I took at sunrise today.
Mr E and I rose early before work and headed towards the beach and port with large coffees and our cameras.
It's still very hot in the tropics and the forecast is for a sweltering autumn so dawn in Townsville is alive with activity before the sun makes sport and exercise too hot to handle.



  1. Frankie is just too cute - my heart breaks for you not having held her yet and so looking forward to that time :) Every grandchild should have the priviledge of grandparents close by. Stitchery is beautiful as always and a little bit of envy over the scenery and proximity to the ocean. Gorgeous, thank you for sharing all of it :)

  2. Beautiful photo's of the beach and port Jenny. All the sneaky peaky photos of the stitcheries are real teasers. Frankie is so adorable - roll on cuddles!
