Its pitch black and its soo quiet, all I can hear is the air filter thingy on the fish tank....Maybe I have this all wrong, I usually stay up till all hours to sew; I should be getting up earlier to sew...
Ive signed up for yet another SWAP arghhh, but I love receiving my swap pressies in the mail... this time is with Quilting Mumma...a mug swap rug...
And Im also signed up for "lets exchange 2012". This is what I sent to Narelle for the Journal Swap. The angry birds pen was a last minute addition as Miss 3 decided to 'borrow' my easter pen ( which was a cute bunny) and well lets say it couldnt be sent. I love Anni Downs notepads and try and include one in each of the swaps. I have a little stock pile and find it quite hard to write on them!!
Next swap item is the 'Once a Season' Swap. The theme is winter...I will have to get on to that one this week as in two more weeks IM off to Fiji for a well earned rest ( so the hubby says lol). I see it as another 10 days of no sewing :( .
Ive already decided on two books to read whilst there. Hubby wanted to go for his birthday this year so I guess I had to say OK lol.
I have been working madly on my Rockets and Robots quilt. Ive finished the applique and stitching, and tomorrow, hopefully I will piece the quilt top, will post pics then.
I have two gorgeous visitors arriving this morning, plus their mummy YAY...
My gorgeous grandson Joshua aged 2 ( pic with my daughter Maddi 9)
And grandson Lachlan aged 8 months...They are coming to visit Nanna for a week as their Mummy and Daddy are off to Perth.. Daddy for work and Mummy to find them a house. My baby girl (oldest) and her little family are moving to Perth within the next few weeks!!!! They confirmed the news a week ago on their Easter visit. Son in Law was offered a promotion too good to pass up. Im an extremely sad Nanna at the moment and will cherish this next week with my little boys immensely....Im allowed to visit whenever I want too ( such a wonderful hubby) but will settle on daily chats on Skype till they purchase a new home......sniff sniff.
Sorry for the long post, I guess its probably one of the first ones Ive written without any interruptions lol....
Thank goodness for Skype! Surely a little hand stitching could go to Fiji too?ReplyDelete
lovely journal swap parcel Deb your partner would have been very pleased,i love Cheryll's swap also they are lots of fun.Lovely grand-sons,i can see skype being used a lot. oh your holiday will be fantastic,i am with Alison i would be taking some hand stitching as well.xxReplyDelete
I am sure you will be able to "sneak" some of your Anni's blocks bits to appliqué whilst you are away. Enjoy Fiji - such lovely friendly people. Love your swap pressies and gorgeous pics of the family. Did I read right - your grandson??? no way you are not old enough to be a nanna/??ReplyDelete
Enjoy your holiday - you'll be refreshed and ready to stitch when you get home. I know what you mean about the notepads - how do you write boring lists on such beautiful pictures? I save mine for 'special' lists. Have a lovely time with your little visitors too.ReplyDelete
Such gorgeous pics and you too have a Maddi, I haven't seen many other's spell it this way. Mine is Madeline. Such a pitty your little family is moving so far away. Skype will be wonderful.ReplyDelete
