Tomorrow–its Tassie

One more sleep and we are off to Tassie.  It is going to be so good to catch up with Dawn, Vicki and Fee again.  I see Joy from time to time, and we are travelling on the same flight.  It is going to be such a good weekend and will be great to meet up with more bloggers.

I have achieved quite a bit at the sewing machine in the last week or so, but most of it will have to wait till I return home to be photographed. But I can show a bit.

Our young Grandie Peta (4 year old) came for a sleepover on Saturday – well in all we had 4 Grandies from 2 families come for the sleepover.  I had made her a doll quilt, pillow and drawstring bag. She has just started ballet, tap and jazz, so the fabric was just right for her.



When we took her home on Sunday I gave them to her.  She was being very grumpy and everything was wrong.  The quilt was too big, the pillow case on the pillow wasn’t right, and no she definitely didn’t have anything to put in the bag.  (We had a little chuckle at her contrariness).

No sooner had we left their house than I received this photo.(its a bit fuzzy).  She was holding on rather firmly to the drawstring bag and quilt.

She was worn out after playing with the 3 boys, so it was a sleepy grumpy.

It is not easy to have all 4 in a photo, but I did manage this one as they were all eating Rice Bubbles for breakfast.

What a cute little set for Peta. I know how she feels when I am tired and grumpy. LOL! Have a simply wonderful time in Tassie and can you give Fee a "real time" hug from me. Looking forward to reading all about it.
