Manicure then the pool

 My nails are done the nearly 4 year old!!!!  At least she chose the pink & not the green polish!
Their new home for the next 12 months has a pool - pretty handy at this time of year.

The Grandchildren

 A new ballet dress means you have to go to New Farm Park and dance amongst the roses!

A couple of quilts

 Audrey's Forest Friends was made from a pattern in a Quiltmania book of children's quilts.  Absolutely delightful designs.  This one's on its way to a friend's granddaughter, Audrey.
This quilt is 21 years old - made for my eldest son in 1996.  It was a Leesa Seigle (sorry probably have spelt that wrong) pattern in a AP & Q magazine.  I machine quilted it and also put a Red Hot Chilli Peppers' emblem in the middle.  My son helped me with it.  The binding is wearing out and it's much loved and taken camping every now and then.

But wait - there's more!

 More circles - loved these too.
 Priscilla outdid herself with this one - Helen Godden style. There were words stitched in the 'rivers' running out of the book.
This was only one block on a fascinating 1st time entrant.  The quilt depicted scenes from Africa & there was a lot of hand stitching - just brilliant.  Queensland Quilters outdid themselves again - a great show & a big thank you to all who helped get it there.
