Feeling a bit sad................


Dearest Mom and Dad
As the wedding draws nearer I am excited and sad at the same time. I cannot wait but would love us all to be together to share the day.

We are a funny little family and share these group texts - here is one talking about Gareth's rugby camp

 
and continued.........................
 


I got dusting this weekend....................... not the most fun I have had..........


Unpacked my stuff from the publishers...................


We went through Button's miniature doll house stuff and found this photo of Jabu on the inside of her toolbox.......


The tea cosy from my book................


One the students in my crazy class made this double wedding ring quilt. How is yours I made so long ago??


So I joined this hiking group - and off we went.........


Because you constantly have to watch your footing you notice all the stuff growing on the ground - lots of "shrooms" - orange ones.......


popcorn ones


all in a row ones.............


odd ones.................


normal ones................


and other ones...........


obstacle course.................


very pretty though.................


needless to say I was exhausted ................


Just had enough energy left to go for a walk and swim at the beach in the afternoon.

 
Ending with another group text thing!
 
all my love

It's too darn hot!

Dearest Mom and Dad,
It's been so hot and humid here - bloody awful actually. I have been spending time in my sewing room - I need to give it a tidy, sew some stuff for the wedding and get ready for teaching this year.


During my tidy ups - I find things like this.


Still trying to be healthy - it has worked! My cholesterol has dropped - woohoooo - without medication.


My book is out there.


Australia day - the weather was not all that good for the celebrations.


We nearly got caught .............


These intrepid youngsters made a huge slip and slide at Point Cartwright.


I found this 1960's sewing basket at an antique shop............


A birthday present for the very lovely Lee.


The ring pillow is done - have a look here http://www.sewsocrazy.blogspot.com.au/2016/02/blog-post.html
 
 

The copies of my book arrived..........


I love the cover....................


I popped into Elaine and Ellenore - their beer matched the book.


Gwen, one of my students, had her crazy hanging on her wall.


Our back yard....well, a few meters away.

 
 
All my love
Jenny
