Hectic and fun times.

Hello everyone ,hope all is well with you.
School holidays is upon us here with one more week till back to school. It has been a full on first week for me with a household of 8 people to see to. It has been hectic and fun times with the grand children. They certainly keep you hopping with each day to the playground, beach, park picnics, fishing, meals,  bath and bed  times etc,etc. It has been lovely and memorable as they don't stay little for long. I have some photos to share at the end of this post. Needless to say no sewing or posting on here for the last 2 and half weeks.
I did sneak a morning to attend quilting class and have a finished quilt  to show.

It feels lovely and soft and I used all my last scraps of left over  flannel .I finished it on the last day of winter
and as it is heating up here into our  Spring I have stored it for next winter.

Here is a photo of our lovely sewing group ladies who meet one day a week sometimes two for the last nearly 11 years. We all have a great bond of mutual affection and close comradeship over those years and have been dear true friends . They always inspire me and we laugh and have fun together.

A couple of ladies are missing from this photo on this day as we enjoyed a lunch day together at the Heritage Garden Nursery. A section of the gardens.

Another quilt project by Val, last post it was all pinned and now the baby quilt is all quilted and finished. So pretty for a dear little baby.

I value my friends at home and my blogging friends as friendship is one of the greatest gifts ever.
These are my adorable grandchildren who are so precious to me.

 My big boys .

My big girl and little one.
My little boy and the girls. Cute faces.

Little human beings with their unique characters
.As a grandparent I look out for their happiness. A major source of fulfillment is to be blessed with grandchildren .
Hopeing it is not so long next time to post on here .I have been having a peek to see what is happening with you all but still have some catching up!!
Till next time.
Happy sewing week.
