A few photos .............

Dearest Mom and Dad
Some of these photos go back a bit.................
On the news during the cyclone!


Having a party!


I went on a hike a while back with my hiking group....


Lots of water about after the cyclone.


Beautiful views.


I made a quilt for Gus from my scraps.


Then I need to get quilting - this will be a little quilt for the baby. I made it years ago............ another unfinished symphony!


Little TjuTju!


A good read - sombre and very sad !


I am now making fabric twine from my scraps - very therapeutic - who knows what I will do with it!

 
Enough nonsense from me.
Missing you!
all my love

A post, at last...................


Dearest Mom and Dad
A lovely lady in one of my classes mentioned this blog and it gave me a bit of a jolt as I have not posted in over a month..................however, I feel as though my life has been a bit boring ........................with nothing really to post about.

But, I have been a bit busy................what with going to Canberra suddenly..............
a bit of sewing and eating on the plane.


The very organised Canberra airport.


So while Gareth was on a house boat with his in-laws .................


Button and I babysat Gus!


Beautiful Gus.


There was a lot of good food..............


writing, writing, writing...................


cuddling Gus............


and a lot of wine drinking..............


I went for a few long walks.............


I bought a little pair of Ugg boots for the arrival of a baby!!!!!


They go very nicely with the Springbok babygrow Gareth bought in SA.


We went out for lunch when the happy couple got back home!


Delish food........


Soup!


Salad!


One of the off leash walks in Canberra!

So there you go, some photos!

All my love

Button was here!

Dearest Mom and Dad
Funny things happen when the garage people meet here - we eat, sew, chat and you can even have your blood pressure tested!


Little Tjutju has made herself quite at home - and her and Bon play all day!


Gus going to the hardware store with Gareth and Chloe.


My walking route - looking very dry before all the rain.


Blossoms.


On my bike route to the beach. I have to confess that I am quite partial to a bit of graffiti.


At the beach - my bike locked up - time for a swim.


Gareth has decided to bike ride to work - Paul (Chloe's dad very kindly gave him the bike)


And off he goes.


Beautiul Button came home for her birthday!! Can you believe that she is 28!!!!


Tea in bed with some healthy blissballs.


Vaughn and Button.


After a very average lunch!


Button and Tjutju.


At the beach.


I used my left over wool and ugly fabrics ...........

 
to make this quilt...................initially for Gus to  lie on when he insists on getting onto the couch. But then we decided that his paws would catch on the wool.
 

It looks good, I think.


Bits of wool, frayed edges and ugly fabrics.

 
all my love

The photos, as you requested or demanded!

Dearest Mom and Dad
Herewith the photos of Vaughn's labour.
The sewing room with its new table (ugly but very functional from our neighbour a few houses down from us). The chairs from a friend/student of mine -she had a garage sale and I got first dibs because Cathy invited me to help set the garage sale up!!! Bonus! I do have good friends!!!


Big book shelve thing Vaughn built.


Inside of the cupboard that runs the length of the double garage!


With the doors closed to hide the mess!!


Bloody good, I say!


This is the calendar which you will never receive! Thanks a lot South African Post $$#@#$&&^%$#


Breakfast for two after a walk/swim at the beach.


Flowers from Lee - thanking me for hosting the "garage people' twice a month.


The outside of the house.


The shade thing over the lounge window -plus the trellis thingy for the jasmin.


Outside our bedroom - we need some furniture!!

Happy now????
All my love
