Keeping busy

I am waiting at the hospital today and have my trusty 'to go' bag. My motherinlaw is having surgery and while she is in theatre I thought it was a good opportunity to get some more stitches in. Not many more stitches are needed before this is done, such a good feeling.

Bandana bib style

When my daughter Kelsey and granddaughter Scarlett were down visiting I had a go at making some bandana bibs. Kelsey chose some fabrics from my stash that she liked and away we went. They turned out quite well and seem to be doing the trick.

Hearts a plenty...

Boy time flies by when you aren't looking.

We have been lucky enough to have our daughter and granddaughter visit several times in the last few months. I do believe that grandchildren are indeed gifts from God and I relish the times that we have together and try to spend as much quality time with them both as possible while we are together. These special times really make my heart sing.

I have been doing some stitching although I don't have much to show in this post. I have tonight however, downloaded an app on the ipad which will enable me to update the blog much easier than having to go into the office and use the laptop which also involves downloading photos etc, most of the photos these days are on the ipad anyway so it makes more sense this way. Time will tell whether I post more regularly than I have been more recently.

Anyway, unfortunately my Aunt passed away at the beginning of June. Aunty Kaye was my fathers only sister and she has always had a special place in my heart. I wanted to do something special for her and so I decided to make a heart to put on her coffin instead of a flower. I loved having the opportunity when I was working on the heart to sift through my memories of her and our times together as I worked. It was lovely catching up with my cousins and extended family at the funeral and being able to celebrate her life with them all.
