Thanks Liz & Irene...I still can't get over just how much like her dad she is - looking at the baby photos it could be the same baby!!

Aww I'm so sorry I missed the FOQ this year - you all look as though you had a great time! It doesn't seem to look as crowded as last year...was it? It's lovely to see familiar faces...I must make an effort to go next year it happens I'm also glad I decided not to go as yesterday I became the proud Nan of Isabelle Rose...I'll post a photo in the chat thread.

19/07/2013 15:16:47 the time is almost upon us I wish I was going! I was so tired after last year I decided to give it a miss this time and DH was quite disappointed as he enjoys his time on his own! As it happens I would rather be here as Grandbaby Huddart is due around the same time and the maternal grandparents will be on holiday!

Maybe next year though

Hope it went well today for you Marion x

Hello Strangers!

I'm so sorry I haven't been very active on here of late :-/ So much has happened and is happening! As many of you know I am soon to be a Grandma (or Nan as I reckon I'll be called) for the first time, so I've been very busy knitting and making gifts for the new arrival to be. the trouble is we don't know the sex so apart from unisex items I've also been making stuff for boys & girls. I could have made a quilt to suit either but you know me and I had to make one of each...

...and here's a close-up...

Anyway...the hot weather has put paid to any quilting now so I'm glad they're finished! There are just 2 more weeks now until the due date & Nat had a baby shower a couple of weeks ago - she got so many presents! We didn't have them in my day (oh dear I'm sounding like a Grandma already!!) but we had a nice get together and I gave her a bag of goodies...

...Jenny made the teddy - yes I'm getting her into sewing...and she's even learning to knit

Here are all our Baby Shower gifts...

Another piece of news I have is that we have finally sold my dad's house which means there is now light at the end of tunnel for me to be able to take early retirement from work I'd love to be able to help out with childcare for the baby and now it seems I can afford to - everything is happening at the same time!

So all is good in this household at the moment, especially after my recent health scare when the docs thought I was having a heart attack!! I was rushed off to A&E, had numerous tests and was given a clean bill of health and told to be more careful when lifting heavy stuff - that was like winning the lottery in itself!

I hope everyone is ok in this heatwave...personally I'm 'living in a cave' and being really appreciative of the air conditioning at work!! Take care everyone!

Love...Ang xx face 23

I've also been very busy knitting and sewing for the new arrival...due in 10 weeks Marian - the time has flown by!

Thread: Ice Cream Strip Swap
23/04/2013 18:36:20

Thanks ladies...I did hang it for a bit but when I took it down it just got piled up with the others. Then I realised I needed a new cover and thought of that. Just had another thought...I could also turn it upside down & put handles on to make a big bag if I got fed up with it

Thanks Carol...yes it's back and thank goodness it wasn't the circuit board! She's sewing beautifully now and so I treated her to this cover

I can't believe it was 2009 when we had this strip swap! If you remember I ended up with a wall hanging featuring beach huts (what else!) and it did go up on the wall for a bit until something else came along. Today I decided to make something of it once and for all and turned it into a sewing machine cover for my newly serviced and repaired Janome.

I wonder if there's anything else I can recycle
