Just a little sneak-peek - yes, Mary, I'm slowly getting there. I guess we are all having busy days, I went to Garden City shopping yesterday, fighting rain, storms and the crowds, sosd no stitching llast night!
Just a little to do on the binding now, maybe a little hand quilting and trhen it will bee on the big silver bird!Below - here she is my Bluebell - a zoom-soom Mazda3. A very nice car to drive, so let's hope she keeps me and all safe!

Last night my twin grandchildren went on a river cruise to see out the end of Year 10 at school. I think most of you know I have twins and both my daughters have twins - all boys and girls - so here's the 15 year olds. I can hear you saying 'Oh my gosh!'
So gorgeous and I'm so proud of them!
This was the third attempt at shopping for Ayesha's dress - of course she wanted black and to wear very, very high heels - I must say I had more to say than my two bobs worth. I think Angela and I did very well to win that battle. Ayesha does have curly hair, but Angela, a former hairdresser, did spend more than two hours on it with the curling tongs. Oh, I do hope they had a fun evening!
Lazy day here today, and now I'm off to buy ingredients for a Christmas cake, some of which I will take to our Christmas Party at my local RPWG. Ta-ta for now!

I have twins who had their year ten formal this year too - amazing to see them both so grown up! Amazing! Yours are lovely! So glad I have boys when I saw the girls all dressed up - they look so grown up!

Love the beautiful blue car, adore the quilt, and, being a twin myself, gotta love that picture! I can't imagine myself being allowed to get that dressed up in High School ... and my own daughter had to make her own party dress. ( I was just cutting scraps from that into my quilt two days ago).

The kids look gorgeous! Hope they had a great time before the weather hit! And love the new car... and a pretty colour too. Are you really going to call her Bluebell? Seems very apt.

Ayesha looks gorgeous in the dress - yes, much nicer than black. Obviously good looks run in your family, Lurline! :-)

Boy, your family is 'Twin Heavy" like mine. My paternal grandmother had 5 sets of boy-girl twins and I have twin sisters. I really wanted twins, but God knew better. My grandmother's twins (oldest, born in 1921) weighed no less than 8 pounds each. Your twins are beautiful.
Merry Christmas
