Grandma and her boys

April already ...

This year has been very disjointed one way and another so far.....

My Daughter's husband was on the list to have a heart op  and they finally decided it would be March 10th .... then as it came close it was postponed for two weeks ... this threw the arrangements for Children and work and holidays and a friends wedding  into disarray as my daughter was to be her bridesmaid... The op was carried out finally on March 24th ... all is well and I have spent a lot of time in Hamilton helping with the grand kids and anywhere else I was needed.  Finally on 4th April Kathryn went to the wedding alone which was very sad but she looked lovely in the photographs ... so on the 5th April I finally came home ... now it is my time ... hopefully to get back to stitching.

I have done very little sewing since before Christmas but have done a few finishing at last ... so 3 UFO's less in the sewing room.

A sewing pouch and needle case  stitching finished at least  last June ......  now made up

My Trees finished ... started at a retreat last September finally now framed

My Pizzaz cushion  stitched  last July / August time ...... finally made up
A few new things in the pipeline and a couple of classes booked with Embroidery Guild which I am looking forward too

The years seem to slip by ....

Yes the years slip by unnoticed one way and another ... does not seem long since I celebrated being 65 then all of a sudden along comes 70.

Oh my that sounds old ... but you are only as old as you feel and I really don't feel 70 well some days I do.

Here is the lovely Kitchen Angel my Daughter gave me I love  the Teapot is just a perfect gift for me.
