Birthdays

We have a few family birthdays in September - my two daughters and a dear cousin for starters.

My cousin celebrated a big birthday and I was invited to the family lunch


and one of my sweethearts was my lunch date - he had a ball and loved all the delicious dumplings.  Gulli looks so grown up now he's had his first haircut.


Last week was my elder daughter's birthday and we had a family bbq yesterday at their new home.  Jenni made the birthday cake - Rocky Road Riot - it was delicious.


I made Elizabeth a cowl/scarf as part of her birthday presents.  I love this rainbow wool from Bendigo Woollen Mills.


Another Swell quilt is underway using the same batik fabrics as last time, plus a few more to make the quilt a bit bigger.  All the blocks are made and I hope to have the quilt top together in the next day or so.


On Saturday night Mum, Robyn and I went to see "Bridget Jones's Baby" - LOVED IT!!!  Best movie I've seen for ages.  Sad in some parts but so very funny overall.  We all had tears streaming down our cheeks from laughing so much.

Change is Good

That has been Matt's mantra for the last few weeks while he and Elizabeth were packing up their Sydney home of the last 11+ years for the big move to the South Coast yesterday.  Very exciting for me and other members of our family.  I had ChaCha for the day and we had a great time.

Last Friday was Jenni's birthday and some of the family were able to meet up for lunch on Saturday, including this little cutie and his Dad in their matching Batman t-shirts.

The only sewing I've managed to do lately is finish off the Spool Sampler filler blocks.


I've started another crochet basketweave scarf - great to do at lunchtimes.
