Family Time

 We finally got out of our 6th lockdown and so it was all about catching up with family. My daughter, her husband and Savannah came over on the first weekend to show us their new dog. It is a French Bulldog called Bentley.

He had already grown so much from the first photos that they sent us.

Jack and Anna came over to show us their Halloween costumes before they went out to trick or treat. Anna is showing how scary she can be!

Earlier this month, it was Savannah's 7th birthday and her parents had told her that she couldn't have a party because we had just come out of lockdown. She took it really well, but of course we all wanted to see her for her birthday, so all the family hid in the kitchen and when she arrived home, we all yelled Surprise!! She was completely surprised and had no idea of her parents devious plan. It was a lovely warm night too, so the cousins could all run around outside.

Last weekend, we went to a winery to celebrate my son-in-law's 40th birthday. It was another beautiful day and I had my photo taken with Alison and Savannah.

I had to mind all three of my grandchildren last weekend and Savannah read Jack and Anna their bedtime stories.

I love it when we can all get together.

So, not much sewing has been happening with family visits and organising the Victorian Quilters Showcase. The good news is that the judging is complete and the results will be announced and online next week.

I have started a new quilt though, here are the fabrics that I have chosen.

The fabrics are very different from my previous quilts, hopefully it will all work out.

Bye for now,

Lovely to finally have family time, I hope to do that this weekend as my Melbourne family are hoping to cross the border this week! Lovely citrus colours you have chosen, look forward to seeing what you do with them. Also looking forward to hearing results of judging of Showcase, I know I have a customer over the border who had a call!

I just hope our borders can stay open and life is normal for a few months, Jude. I am looking forward to the Showcase winners being announced, it's been a long wait for the entrants.

Family time - how wonderful! I am firmly crossing everything I have in hopes we'll get to see our oldest son, DIL and grandie at Christmas - it's been almost two years.
Looking forward to seeing what you create with those wonderfully saturated fabric colours!

My fingers are crossed for you too, Magpie Mumblings, we've really realised how important family is to us these days.
