About Me- Bird on the Border

My photo
BIRD ON THE BORDER I am so blessed to be a wife,mum and a grandma of two. Our wonderful son and his lovely wife have two beautiful children. A beautiful little girl and a hansom little boy. My little family complete. My husband and I both work. He is full time and I work 3 days per week. We enjoy travelling, going in our caravan, dining out and spending time with friends and visiting our children whenever we can. Nothing like grand kids and cuddles. I love anything country and Shabby Chic and I love patchwork and stitching and getting together with like minded ladies who love to do the same. Just wish I had time to do more. I love catching up with friends over a cup of coffee , and the smell of biscuits cooking in the oven on a rainy day. I enjoy keeping in touch with the many friends I have met through blogging and sharing our sewing and our lives on our blogs. I love going off on stitching retreats and quilting weekends with my quilting buddy and friends. And of course I love the birds in my garden and none of them in a cage.

Fun with Evelyn

Bath Spaghetti ... what fun soap. Picked it up at a pharmacy in Tamworth.


Funny story... Boo Poppy arrived after me to see Cotlon.  Ev and I  had earlier made some cup cakes together. When he arrived he asked her if she had something special to show him and the answer was ..
Yes! Cupcakes! 

       Evelyn with her memory quilt.  All the people at her baby shower gave a piece of fabric .  She loves it and uses it a lot . I have finally finished the naming and cataloguing of all the donations of fabric. I made it into a game for her. Each piece is laminated and named. She knows who gave it and can also play a matching game with them. Colton will have a set for his quilt as well.

Lots of Photos of our Family


It's one of those times where you can't take enough photos ....Sorry

Such a proud sister
                       
                             Em looks so good after all that hard work... Love her to bits, best daughter in law ever. 
Evelyn loves a selfie
            Boo Poppy couldn't get enough cuddles
 
Our grandchildren..... nice sound to that  I think
Three generations of Morris boys- all with Raymond as a middle name. 
                      I wonder if there will be four one day?

Delicious Dinner

If you ever go to Bargara beach near Bundaberg Qld.  go to Kacy's  restaurant right on the beach. Its a lovely little restaurant and I had the nicest seafood I have had for a while. So fresh.  Yum




Finishing Touches

Spending today doing school work and between times finishing the stitching sand bind on Colton's quilt.

Today the weather has returned to winter.  A truly unusual winter with many hot days. The news said yesterday the last time we had this temperature in July was 1945.  No global warming then I suppose??
