well it seems like I haven't been blogging or writing many emails of late and he was worried.
The reason being I feel like I have been
So after chatting, I promised No1 Son I would write a substantial blog post.
Happy 4th of July
to my American friends.
But I have a special reason to remember and celebrate that day. It is the birthday of The Princess, 3rd child and only female (and favoured by all, but she does deserve it)
This is her with her two brothers, both of whom she is great friends with. I had the photo taken approx 1976 and had a large one made to send to my Mother in England who unfortunately never met her Aussie Grandchildren.
A beautiful girl, with a beautiful smile who always seemed to make others smile too.
Hope you had a Happy Birthday Sarah, whose name incidentally does mean Princess.
The days have been spent in the sewing room. I have found some UFO's which I really want to get finished.
But the one I am currently working on is from a Pattern Called Leanne's House, but I call it My Home. This is the 2nd block work in progress.
I am doing more embroidery than the pattern, but I do love embroidering.
Also you will note in my right hand margin Stitched Sunday .... Helen from Hugn'Kisses is teaching us how to stitch and there is always something new to learn. The squares she gives are for a Needlebook, but I am doing mine to put into a Cuddle Quilt. This is the 1st block from last Sunday, not stitched yet so I had better get a move on.
There has been great concentration put into the making of the Food Row for the Robin Rowers. I was secretly dreading this row as I felt that food just didn't fit in. But I think its fine, the Quilter wanted 30's prints and I just couldn't get my head around it until ....... now this is only a sneak view and the rest of the row is not at all like it
I finished stitching this tonight, (nice and early once again) and I have just to stitch the label
Tomorrow is forecast much the same weather wise (and life wise) so after a quick trip to the shops I think its back to the sewing room and my Kindle, did I tell you how I love my Kindle. The books I have read this year I have listed on the right hand side, this is for my reference and its great to see how much I have read.
