Happy Holiday!

The countdown is on, still lots to do - I'm slipping in this little Post before I go.

Two delightful little books have arrived during the week - Red Home for Chookyblue's Stitchalong and GT&SB -the latest mentioned, I just love this quilt and started many years ago and now that there is so much popularity I've decided to have another go! The above pattern is an original of mine and the one below with the little dollies, well I figured I would find a spot for it in the quilt. I love whimsy, so there could be a few additions and subtractions.
Dear Mother Harriet - I will take her to a respite centre this afternoon - somehow I think it will work out okay. My goodness, I look at her all the time and don't often notice the sparkle in the beautiful blue eyes she has had all her life and that's for 94 years!
Pretty new fabric - I love it and don't know why?
From stitching to family - my beautiful daughter, Angela cutting beautiful grandaughter Ayesha's hair - how long is that? The most beautiful head of hair I have ever seen, wash and wear and yes, Angela is a hairdresser. God bless and stay safe, I'm off to Thailand on an early flight tomorrow!

I purchased the Green Tea and Sweet Beans book because of you. And Lori. I've always loved seeing what you have done. When Lori bought it I thought, even if I don't use it right now, the blocks are so beautiful.

Bless your Mum. She looks very sprightly.

I really love your little dollies!
