July is always a busy month in our house
Tax time… blah…
Waterboy’s birthday! That’s next weekend so we’ll see the little family again :)
Had a lovely day out with them last Saturday ~ went for an early morning drive to the bayside suburb of Redcliffe near Brissie. Such a gorgeous day and so warm down there by the ocean. They bought a new car and I got to ride shotgun with Country Princess on the way home. Nice!
We stopped at a great country pub for lunch on the way. Nice again! Before we knew it we were home to the cold, dreary Toowoomba weather… I long for sunshine and warmth
Doings from my room ~ not much this week, a couple of customer quilts and a bit of preparation for another project
I love this quilt… such happy colours… a mini meander, a flowing leaf and some ditch quilting. Judy’s going to finish it with some raw edge applique
Gen’s quilt ~ all finished with the binding machined on ready for her to hand sew
You’ll find more of my quilty doings on facebook here
Moo has started her big holiday in the US ~ we said our teary goodbyes on Friday morning. Blossie flies over in three weeks time to meet her in LA, she’s so excited! A week in California and finishing it off with a week in Hawaii... lucky girls!
Here they are at the departure gate ~ gorgeous things. I’m the Mum, a bias opinion comes with the territory :)
I had a message from Moo yesterday in Las Vegas, it read
‘Hi Ma! I put my ‘big girl pants’ on and ventured out for dinner on my own. Tacos and Tequilas. And yes, I’m having a marguerita’
She’s set up a blog to record her travels, you’ll find it here
This is Manda’s travel wallet…(and her glitter toenails, and her ‘whiteberry’)… the script on the front reads
‘Two roads diverged in a wood and I took the one less travelled by, And that has made all the difference’
That’s our girl to a ‘T’
Have fun Moo! Lots of piccies for us!
I’ve had a few emails about the sweet little crocheted keeper I use to hide my tape measure
I don’t crochet, I bought this one from an Aussie patchwork store but I’m not sure if they have them now. My very clever crocheting friend ~ Debbie ~ borrowed mine and made one for herself, just by looking at it. I’m in awe…
Big week this week… Blossie is moving out of her unit and back home for a bit. We’re looking forward to having our littlest gosling home again, even if it’s only for a short while. Tuesday is moving day!
I’ve pinched a couple of photos from Sarah’s blog to show you what the Christmas in July girls are being treated to..
