Not much has been happening on the sewing front but hopefully I will get a few hours here n there to do some hand sewing....lots of Stonefields blocks to do...and....and....and .....the list is never ending.....My Chrissy swaps have arrived at their destination and my partner still has no idea .....gotta love Christmas swaps....only two more days...excited!!!!!

A lovely surprise......but not for me :)

Thursday night I flew into Perth with daughter No2 to surprise daughter no1 and my two grandsons.....My gorgeous SIL kept the secret for 6 weeks....Daughter no1 took over an hour to stop saying, can't believe your here....very surreal .... Heheheheh was  lovely to see their surprised faces....
The last few days have been a blur but Mr6 took Nanna on the Kracken.....Australia's biggest (wildest) water slide.... And Nanna went down backwards a hahahaha....was exciting and terrifying at the same time......roller coasters, carols by candlelight, markets, and playing halo on the having a wonderful time, one more day then I will have to make the trek home.....miss my babies at home but being with my two big babies was just what this Mummy needed......lots of pics....sorry ...oops and no sewing although I bought it with me....

See that blue and green cone on the right, that's part of the Kracken ride, we shot into the HUGE cone....argghhhh backwards lol

Mr 6, Mr 4 and DD28 playing dress ups ..... Actually wrestling on the trampoline
