Beautiful Unexpected Surprise


It has been very busy in my life this last week and a half. 

 A beautiful week though because look how it ended up......


Not much sewing .... I had to drive myself all over the place..... no stitching ... I think I will have to ask Chooky for a pass on my SAL.

Friday  23rd  August - to Brisbane  ( 4 Hours)   Catch up with a dear friend and fit in watching dear friends daughter play a  game of hockey. 

Go see the antique quilt display at the Queensland Art Gallery. It was amazing, I love the stories, sorry no photos allowed..... but I did buy a lovely book about the quilts.

Saturday 24th   drive  to Sunshine Coast
My youngest Aunty, Ros was 60.....big party.....Much fun and catch up.

Aunty Ros and hubby  Gary


2 of my beautiful nieces, a teacher and a nurse...don't know where that green thing on my head came from... LOL 

My other beautiful niece  ... office work

A beautiful sunrise....not often I see it over the ocean from home.
 Sunday  25th August -  Breakfast at the beach ..... Drive Home  6 hours ........don't know why ... love the beach.....  




WEDNESDAY  28th  August 2013       BIG   SURPRISE 

Arriving a little earlier than expected 

Another  6  hour plus  drive....... . For this special little girl.     

I drove again  ........no stitching ........  

  They say that new borns don't smile but I think she was glad to see her grandma.......




With her beautiful mum




proud dad and grandad

Of course I had to have lots of cuddles

And of course when visiting hours were over, there was shopping......

Congratulations to Grandma and Grandad! She's beautiful!
My parents will sympathise with you about driving to see a grandchild. (I should say my Dad as Mum didn't drive.) They followed my sister's family around through several bank transfers.
