First Christmas's are always special

This is No: 1 son - expectant father of Baby Bump - he was 18 months old; below is No: 2 son @ 11 months & then No: 3 at 8 months - glad cameras were invented as our memories are never as clear as photos!

Hope everyone had a great Christmas - whether you celebrated yesterday or a few days ago as we did!

Party, party, party!

I can feel the kilos being added to my hips - all these Christmas break-ups & last Saturday, my group, Triple P (Purple Paddo Patchers) had a Birthday Bash.  We celebrated Christmas in July.  Four of us have our birthdays this month - hence the four cup cakes. Just a couple more to go then a quiet week before Christmas.  What a season!

Baby Bump's Quilt

Our grandbaby's quilt is finished - barring the label - don't have a name - can't make up my mind what to put on the label.  Really happy with it - Appliqued with blanket stitch, hand quilted - love the ric rac.  All from my stash - still working on getting that smaller - however, the recent bus trip added  a couple more pieces to the stash.

Christmas is close

It was the Children's Christmas Service at Church on Sunday - the sheep were well behaved - the boys were wishing they were somewhere else.  The children did really well & it was a lovely way to celebrate the beginning of the Christmas season

Sherwood Stitchers Bus Trip

We had lunch at various venues along the esplanade at Redcliffe - there is an area devoted to the Bee Gees - Redcliffe bring their home in the 1960's (I think I'm right!)  We ended our day at Northside Sewing Centre was our last stop and I forgot to take photos.  It's a great shop with more wonderful fabric.  It was a great day out.

More of the Bus Trip

Heavenly Patchwork of Clontarf welcomed us with their delightful little shop. The banner panel was a hit with a lot of the ladies & they shopped well!!!

Sherwood Stitchers Bus Trip

First stop after a long trip from Sherwood to Shorncliffe (about an hour for those not from Brisbane) - then on to the shops - first shop was Faeries in my Garden - they are holding a sale in January. Delightful shop & great fabric.
