I am just a bit excited......

Because on Tuesday I head off on a 6 - 7 hour drive to meet up with Harry and Vicki to spend a few days with them while their Mum and Dad go to "school" to learn more about the methods of farming they wish to pursue.  After that I will be heading to their farm for a few days to see the progress on the renovating, be there for the mustering, hang out in the playroom with Harry and Vicki, and spend some time with Kerryn.

In the meantime....
Today  - oops  it is now after midnight, so yesterday was Vicki's 1st birthday
       
Just one short year to go from this....
to this.  
 Happy Birthday gorgeous girl.

Today I finished making the little raggy quilt for the doll cradle that I was given for her.  It is made with the leftover pieces of Vicki's raggy quilt.


That is another addition to their playroom and it wont be too long before she will be tucking her doll into bed.


 Here she is ready for a day's work on the farm,
and now checking out the contents of the shopping bag.

Happy Birthday Vicki.
Love her presents. The dolly's cot looks wonderful with the linen and matching raggy quilt.
Love the photo of her ready for work. Didn't know 'King Gee' made shirts that small.
