Yesterday the girls went to the groomers, I have to take photo's 'cos they look so cute and clean and sweet....
..for this one it only lasts for a day, the ribbon has gone already..! We'll find it under a chair or cupboard when I (or the railway man) clean next. Miss Martha is a little more ladylike and her ribbon will last for days..
..well, it will if Miss Molly doesn't get her teeth around it..!
My friend Margaret got a little toy Singer for Mothers Day and I promised I would show her mine when Blogger stopped misbehaving, it did, so here's my little Singers..
They're beauties aren't they Margaret??
The last one I have the box for but I don't keep it in the box, I like to see it. They both sit on my black dresser amongst my fabric and are perfectly at home. I, like Margaret, would love a whole collection but I'm glad I've only got the two!! You know what we mean don't you..?
Talking of sewing and fabric :o) here's my Japanese fabric all cut up ready to go.
I'm using this gorgeous brown slub fabric for the background instead of black. There are three of us making this at my Patchwork group and we're all doing it with a different background so it should be interesting. I'm making two at the same time and the other is a sort of buttery cream background, I'm not going to show you that one as it's for someone special to do something special with...
I know, it's a bit like the butler in the conservatory isn't it, just a snippet and nothing more! I'll tell you all about it when it's finished, remind me...! :o)
I've finished the tree on my Crimson Tweed, should have taken a photo, but I didn't and I just can't be bothered now, I'll take one when I've put the star on it'll be more interesting then anyway. Do any of you subscribe to the Quilt Show? I don't but I just watched the latest episode with Sue Spargo (there was a link with her newsletter) and her work is just so inspiring, I really enjoyed it. Is it worth subscribing?
I'm off down to Geelong tomorrow, there's a new person in our family circle I have to meet! Our daughter Sarah has a new partner in her life and I haven't met him yet..! Not so strange really, he only arrived on Monday from Minneapolis. This man has left all his friends and family behind, has travelled half way around this planet to be with our girl...! He's left everything he knows and loves for an instant family that he's never met and you know what the best thing is...? He makes our girl happy. He makes her smile when she talks about him, I can't ask better than that can I?
(If you're a long time reader here, you'll know that Sarah has met Matthew, several times, and they've known one another a long time. She's been several times to Minneapolis, the last time for her first white Christmas just a few months ago. I would hate for you to think this is a 'never met in real life dating thing'. As I read this back I realised that that's just what it sounded like.)
Just to finish, this made me smile a little while ago, Miss Martha was doing this....
..while Miss Molly was doing this..
...watching the planes fly over..!! Such a baby still......
