Holly's Working

Still hand quilting away here, I think I've done about a quarter of the quilt now. I'm just doing it lightly to begin with, just in case the deadline looms close and I'm not nearly ready, if time permits, I'll go back and do more. I should be quilting right now, but I'm having a rest, it really does get old after a while.

Today was quilt group, and I had a great time with my buddies. Today was filled with a lot of fun and laughing, they're a great bunch of ladies. One of my besties, Karen, belongs to the group, and today she brought along something which warrants further investigation, so we've organised a play date together on Tuesday. It's something like the machine mats that Dawn showed us not so long ago, but Karen is using hers as a mat for her hand work. I was thinking that we may have a go at making something like it up, but refining it with some cute features, but that'll be something we play with on Tuesday.

Today's picture was snapped just a short time ago. Holly was fascinated by an hourglass that was moving on the computer in the study, and was just staring at the computer. She turned around for the picture though - doesn't the camera make her eyes scary! We were joking around that she's got work to do ... Holly often chases the mouse pointer on the screen and taps at it ... it's really fun to see.

Cameron's family birthday party last night was lots of fun. We had a house full, and he loved being the centre of attention. He received a LOT of Lego as gifts. I didn't realise I'd spread the word so far that he loves the stuff so much! I loved it as a kid, and I'm pleased he does too. Amy didn't care for it so much, but she's enjoying helping him out with his kits. School transition went well today, I think he coped better than I did. It was just an hour with his new teacher today, a little longer on Thursday next week and the week after. Then we have two weeks school holidays, then he's at school for real! OMG, I think I'll be a mess on that first day. I'll be a lot happier next year when he's actually at Amy's school.

Anyways, that's it for me ... I hope to have something quilty to share with you all soon. x o x

Legos are therapy for everyone every age. Kind of like, crayons and play dough. It should be mandatory for everyone to play with once a year...

Really impressive tail, she has... lol. Toby is in love! I have a bubble screensaver that he likes to watch - he has real life experience with bubbles since I blow some catnip scented ones for him when he looks bored. :)
