The kids learnt to ride the Quad on their OWN. They just loved that.

Then GS2 and Pop went camping and left the girls to do girly stuff.

We were off to town to go visit my other DD,GD and GDD.

Nice little collection of fabrics jumped into DD2’s bag!!!

In the evenings DD2 managed to do a lot of sewing while I did some hand stitching.

I really like the way her quilt is going together.

DD2 and her family have joined Pop for a few days camping sew I organised some of my swaps.

When I went to post them I also picked up some goodies.

  13. O my - that certainly sounds like a "wonderful time is had by all"! : )

    Those little owls are popping up everywhere , aren't they? I think that they are so sweet.

    O man- you have Big windows and I ADORE big windows(not necessarily cleaning them- but Enjoying them.I have begged and begged for DH to install a big window in our living room. It is so little and so dark that it tends to get depressing. I did fudge and I have two big aquariums in the darkest corners and that helps a lot. But -if I had YOUR windows I could sit and watch it snow! (That is one of my dreams) I am always fussing the it only snows at NIGHT when I cannot see it. Sometimes I sneak out to the car and sit and watch it snow.

    yes- I know - I am quirky. LOL
