Another fab week with lots of wonderful family times for me and today I will be AWOL from leaving comments because I have two special little friends arriving here at 7 this morning and staying til about 6 tonight. Michelle is having phased days back to work before she starts back part time in June and today is a day with Nanny Annie for the twins. If I haven't lost the knack then I might get them both down for naps at the same time and manage to drop in on a few of you but if my plan goes feet up then I will try to call in on you tomorrow......no apologies made cos I shall be treasuring every moment of today :-) :-) :-)
So what pics have I got to share with you today?
The wonderful parcel of fabric that Di sent Jo and I this week for making more little dresses for the Dress a girl scheme. We are having a little break from dress making as most of you will know because between us we have now made 401 dresses but we promise this fabric will be used to make more when we have time....Thanks Di x
A 'to do' rail full of trousers to shorten.
This is what I had Jo doing while she was here Monday....Grovelling at my feet!!!!....just where I like her :-)
She is cutting the linings for the next double width pair of curtains we have to tackle. I couldn't do curtains without her as I am unable to kneel on the floor with my replacement knee and we make a brilliant team....Thanks Jo you're a gem. x
Said curtains that just need finishing. I'm sure they will look lovely when finished but as you can see they have a quilted effect with stitching and don't lie nice and flat for hems and seams so are a real pain for making. :-( .....I hate b***** curtains. [have I ever said that before?]
These two pics are just to share with you the beautiful Azalea and bouquet of flowers that I was given over the weekend for Mother's day.....they are far too pretty to keep them all to myself. I was treated to lunch on Saturday buy my son, Mark and his girlfriend, Gina....we were joined by her parents, her brother and Nan and Michelle, Brent and the twins. What a special gathering of lovely people....Thanks so much. x
Sunday we were invited to Michelle and Brent's for lunch. Michelle did savouries and Amy joined us with her three and she brought cakes and sweets. They make a fab team and it meant I could have quality time with all 5 of our gorgeous Grandchildren ......what more could a Mummy ask for? :-)
Thank you so much to all for making my weekend really special.
Now folks, please leave me a little hello comment before you pop over to Julia's blog to join in the WOYWW fun. I hope you all have a wonderfully creative week.
