Fun Times

Wednesdays with Jed and Clay doesn't always happen lately due to work commitments .... but when it does we love it !!!!


This morning at the beach .... even David gets Wednesdays off sometimes !!


We had great fun exploring at the zoo on the weekend too !! 


Clay loved the baby crocodiles !! 


And Jed was impressed with the big crocodiles !!


Beautiful view from my office last week on a clear and sunny day .... hard to be working inside on a day like that !! 


We received this gorgeous thankyou card from Elliott and Andrea who are thrilled with their wedding photos taken by Alex Marks !  Will share some soon !! 


Trying to fit in some stitching time but not too much getting done !! 


Just little bits here and there !!

Family

Busy fitting in a couple of days in Sydney each week lately to look after Jonah which has been lots of fun !!  


Always happy and smiling and a pleasure to spend time with !!


Here he is playing with paint at daycare this week !!  Very creative at 9 months !! 


We had a weekend in Melbourne for football and fun last weekend ....


Father and son die hard Hawthorn supporters !!   They won !!!!


I managed an hour at the quilt show too which was a bonus !!


Some beautiful quilts .... a few of my favourites ....




And now back to Wednesdays with Jed and Clay ....


Jed is the Lego king !!!


And Clay is always happy with food !!!


And a little bit of quiet stitching while they rest !!

New Biscornu

I finally stitched together another of my favourite Biscornu pieces ....


The top ...


The bottom ....


And a side view .... this is my version of a Sue Hawkins design .... a few different stitches and designs used .... not very often of late have I had the opportunity of a quiet couple of hours of afternoon stitching on the weekend !! 


The next day was not so relaxing .... we climbed Pigeon House mountain with friends ... this was the view from the top on a glorious day !!



A quick visit to the farm on the way home to see the new calves ...


Uncle Sam and Nadia went to visit Jonah on the weekend and sent this cute pic !!! 


And here I am back in Sydney for a couple of days looking after Jonah who has a bit of a cold .... but despite that continues to smile through it all !!

Saturday ....

A beautiful morning walk along the beaches this morning with our puppies .... they had a swim .... we didn't !!!


And now it is clouding over so I may even manage some afternoon secret stitching which is hidden in this gorgeous Camilla pocket ....


And i may even use my new stitching chair !!!!


A little creativity on our first weekend at home for a while .....


Hope you are enjoying your weekend !!

Babysitting

A busy morning trying to teach a little one to crawl for his toys .... I must have exhausted him because he is fast asleep .....


This is modern babysitting with a monitor ....


Which allows for a little quiet stitching time !!  Gotta love this gig in Sydney !! 


Jonah .....💙

More Fiji

A couple more Fiji memories .... Sam and Nadia ....


Chelsea and Kye ....


Jed wanted to give this beautiful bunch of flowers to mummy ....


And this little cutie, despite spending a night in hospital, brings love and laughter to everything ....


Sadly Elliott and Andrea and Jonah couldn't join us due to work .... so they sent us pictures of them freezing back in Sydney ...,


Fiji

We had a lovely week away last week in Fiji with most of the family ....


Stunning flower arrangements ....



Beautiful blue blue water at such a beautiful temperature ....


You have to love a hotel that welcomes you with freshly made lime and coconut shortbread .... and hibiscus !! 


Food was incredible ... a few good desserts together with the freshest fish and tropical salads !!


We cooked our own BBQ seafood lunch on the island one day ....


We celebrated Ashleigh's birthday a week early .... so she could have a warm one !!



Stunning sunsets ....



And some waterslide fun too !!!   It is now very hard to get warm back at home after such gorgeous weather !!
