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

Dearest Mom and Dad
I tried to enjoy my Suffolk Puff quilt on our bed over Christmas - but, as usual, George just crumples it up into some sort of nest.

Gareth makes our kitchen stools look tiny!

Picnic dinner at Mooloolaba................ of my favourite things to do.

Squash, on the mend.

Frankie, Katie and the twins cam over.

Button found a few lovely vintage dresses when she was here - these are two of the best - 1950's.

And some wors and gem squash on the braai - not forgetting the shweshwe tablecloth!

I made this delish crumble cake for crazy the other day!

It was a winner- fresh mango and strawberry.

I LOVE this photo!!

All my love

Still chilling!

Dearest Mom and Dad
Button and I headed off to the Woodford Folk festival for New Year.

Its sort of in the country.

Its huge - so we needed some maps and map readers!

It was hot, hot hot.

At midnight there are no loud fireworks or noise - its very quiet!
Quite lovely in fact.

Leah and Button with matching butterfly wings..

Gareth has turned out to be quite the chef!

And he was very happy to have found some "Castle"!

The dangers of living in the house of a quilter - packets of sewing needles suck to sweaty backs!

Chloe and I have walking most days!!

and doing a few press ups................... every bench we came across....

We walked all together ............

Squash still has to be carried.

We have tried to do something different everyday - the Peregian markets were lovely and so was breakfast and a swim at the beach.

Gareth and Chloe ...............

AND we found some gem squash - great excitement!!!!!

Our dinners on the patio are always a feast and a happening - Carol would be impressed.

SOOOOOO much food.

Party central.

I feel blessed.

Wish you were here.

Just chilling!

Dearest Mom and Dad
Vaughn  and I are LOVING the time spent with Gareth and Ainslie.

I seem to be the only one drinking - but when did that stop me!

George is in his seventh heaven.

Button is loving the sun.

And they are, for the moment, happy to pose for photos.

So is Chloe.

I am trying to get some stitching in - Chloe started a hexie quilt the last time she was here.

Gareth and Chloe in the kitchen - both wearing their sarongs.

Button reading - she does that a lot.

More photos to come.
