Family Times ... with a little stitching

Not lots of stitching being done lately .... but lots of grandparenting, working and a little relaxing ....



Today these little monkeys are keeping me on my toes .... we are camping in the middle of our lounge room .... it's a bit windy outside to pitch the tent !!



We have had some fun family times ... 



Watching and learning about stingrays with the little boys ....



Picnics on the beach after a paddle and a bush walk ...



Climbing trees with Jed and Clay ...



Catching up with a very happy Jonah in Sydney ....



He loved the visit to the zoo with his mum and dad and sam and nadia ....



I think the giraffes were the favourites !!




Some great pics from last weekend at the beach ....



Fantastic drone pic by Tim ....



Ash and the boys paddle boarding .... one sucking his thumb whilst on the job !!



And a little creativity last weekend while the man of the house was watching football ..



A little scissor fob for my travel scissors .... now I just need to book a trip somewhere to use them !! 



A very cute little woollen pincushion which Sylvia made for me .... an Anni Downs design and simply gorgeous !!



I forgot to post these birthday gifts which are very treasured .... a lovely lace bookmark from overseas ....



And Natalie Birds new Blue Book ... full of beautiful projects !! 



And lastly .... inspiration for a new project .... these gorgeous buttons purchased at the Old Bus Depot Markets in Canberra recently .... what will they become ????    Stay tuned to find out !!

Friendship

Over my years of stitching I have made some great friendships .... it was lovely to join a couple of those friends in Canberra for a few stitches yesterday ....


We stitched at Sues and Rose came up from Melbourne too !!   And yes there were bubbles involved !! 


We celebrated some birthdays ....


Some lovely gifts given and received ....


The lolly bowl was a good prop ...


We had a lovely Italian dinner out last night ...


And enjoyed breakfast on the foreshore in the sunshine before a wander around the markets ...


And then it was back home for me and a walk along our stunning coastline in the sunshine with David ...


Such a beautiful part of the world we live in !!
