How has your weekend been? It has been very chilly here just 10 degrees celcius for most of the day even though the winter sun has been peeking through.
We have been very busy around the house. My 19 year old son Josh has been quite sick for the past couple of months and is moving back home. He needs to go into a wheel chair and our house is wheel chair "friendly". We have been shuffling rooms around and having a massive clean out and de-clutter in readiness.
I have wondered once or twice over the past 3 days how I have come to accumulate so much stuff.
I have had to be very ruthless and am quite proud of myself for letting go of some things I have kept for so long. At times like this you just do what you have to do.
It will be so nice to have him back home in our care and I will try to fatten him up a bit in the process.
We have also had a few visits over the long weekend from these 2 little monkey's. (Tom & Maddie) They walk through the front door of our home once ariving and run for cuddles - It is just so lovely !! I can't wait until Mia and Isabelle do the same.
Having 4 grandchildren is such a blessing and I love spending time with them all. Sometimes I wish they could stay so young and innocent. But I know that they have to grow up and face the world - I just pray that it is an easy road they have to travel.
Each evening I have been able to sneak a little time for stitching.
I am progressing with my BOM and am now onto Block 2 !!
I was also able to embellish some little singlets for Isabelle. Sam bought them a few weeks ago and I finally got around to prettying them up for her.
Very simple but very cute
So that is a round up of our long weekend. How did you spend yours?
Before I go I just wanted to send my love and best wishes to our New Zealand friends who are once again facing more devastation. It is so unbelieveable what you have had to go through yet again.
