.. has once again slipped away from me .. but I am still here .. I promise xx lol x
Since I last spoke to you all I have once again been made a grandma (that makes 4 boys and 1 girl x) x My daughter (in Australia) had a .. not so .. little boy x He weighed 9 POUNDS and 6 ozs…. no idea what that is in metric!.. but BIG in any language x So far the reports are that he is content, a good feeder AND a good sleeper x
I asked his brother what he though of the new baby.. the answer? … GRANDMA !..... I am fixing the wheel on this trolley!.. well that told me!
There was already some knitting on the go for the big brother .. so some extra was done for the little one ..
… they are for next winter .. as they are coming into spring now x... bit more stash used up too.
At Congleton quilt group we had a sewing evening and made..
.. a slightly bow-legged fairy xx lol x
This week we were sewing an art project ,.. but I forgot my camera .. so that will have to come later when we do the next part. I CAN however show you what I came home with ..
.. free to a good home x lol x I stewed them this am .. yummy x
I finished the 5 gold rings..
and I don't mind the slightly wonky look now x It feels good to be ahead of myself this year.
Our local Linus Quilt representative was telling us that she is getting plenty of baby and small child quilts and not so many for older children/teenagers … so I went to the scrap bag and have started a top..
I am "thinking" about what to do with it next x
The garden still has some colour despite some decidedly "sharp" mornings..
My mum has been at the hospital again .. she is to have her cataracts removed..OH MY! We will all be in for it when she can see better! lol x
Hope you are all well .. we are in the midst of flu jabs and dire warnings of storms and cold weather here xx AH! Winter is coming x
