About Me- Bird on the Border

My Photo
I am so blessed to be a wife,mum and a grandma. Our wonderful son and his lovely wife have a beautiful little girl. My little family complete. My husband and I both work full time. We enjoy travelling, going in our caravan, dining out and spending time with friends and visiting our children whenever we can. 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. I also write the blog for our local quilt group Macintyre Quilters which you find on the side bar.

Problem Solved and SSCS 2016

I have not been able to post for a while but I have finally solved the problem...I think.
I now have to use google Chrome not google.  I must just be old fashioned.


Finally I can post what I sent to my Secret Santa. Poor Noemia did not receive her present until January 7th.  SNAIL MAIL PLUS.

I hope she enjoyed it.

Some Sewing in the Caravan



Finally found some time to finish a little dress for my GD.   "Frozen" of course....what else.. that is truely her favourite at the moment. 
















 True Happiness - Time with my little granddaughter and of course her mum and dad and "Boo Poppy".

The Christmas Turkey

This deboned and rolled turkey stuffed with Cranberry sauce, bacon, camembert, bread stuffing  and pistachios has become a tradition in our family. Now we are teaching our son to do it.  It is really very nice and it all disappears on Christmas day.
