my mum ran away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My Aunty Doreen won a all expenses paid five star resort 7 day holiday in Fiji by making one phone call to a Great Outdoors competition …and being my darling Aunty Doreen she decided mum could be the second person.. Mum has always been the rock in the family of 7 brothers and sisters even though she is the second youngest, everyone goes to her for dispute settlements , when they are sick ( as do my cousins) relationship problems etcetcetc.. and as time has gone on they have all started slowly returning the favour as mum is a widow on an invalids pension and no savings ( my dad was not a good person) so she is off on her trip of a lifetime and she was very excited before she left.. i paid her ticket to melbourne , my sister paid the ticket back,, and we have been showering her with money and assorted “necessities” .. she had a night in melbourne with Aunty D and they went out to dinner ( my shout) and then to Menopause the Musical,….. she texted me and said she was dancing on the stage… sigh ..thats my mum ,
so i am off to nab my nephews for a day tomorrow and go spoil them rotten..
in other news i tracked down a copy of my favorite needle print chart and it is on its way , it is not one of the ackworth ones it is the Beatrix Potter Quaker you need to scroll down towards the bottom… luckily the companion does not interest me.. i just really like this one.. i also like the M quertier a bit below it maybe one day i will add that to the collection
i was a bit hesitant ordering from a site i know little about, but i know gigi from numerous BB’s and she seems adorable so i decided it would be ok, and it has taken 10 days to the postage stage, but that is fine.. they needed to find out how much it cost to post to tasmania.. strangely they did not have a lot of customers from here..lol
i have lots of other cool links but i need to finish packing so i had better stop..
oh i forgot to say after my next rotation in Kerry’s model i will be starting
Lady in the Meadow QS as my next model , and this will be for Michele’s office she is already kitted and the colours are amazing looks like a forest floor in autumn, or the notofagus in autumn at crater lake which is near Cradle mountain.. anyway i have never stitched a palette like it before
