Catch up time again...
In my last post (I know, a long time ago) I mentioned about going to Winton for their quilt show. For those not in the local area and who may not have heard, that magnificent centre The Waltzing Matilda Centre, burnt down a few weeks ago. What a tragedy. However, in the true spirit of the bush, it will be rebuilt, bigger and better of course!
Rewind now, back to Easter and school holidays. Had a wonderful time with family and friends at home, we averaged between 10 and 17 for about 10 days Thanks to Terry who looked after the shop, I had a few extra days at home as well. Lots of stock work completed, but always time for a game of cricket in between.
There were always at least 2 sittings for smoko and the weather was pleasant enough to eat outdoors at night as well.
The handle of the old bat, broke on the first day, but that didn't stop them for the entire fortnight!
Fast forward to footy season and two of the grandsons have had big trips away to play in different competitions.
First photo, Harrison front and centre, played at the Gold Coast 12 and under State titles and Lachlan on the right, front and centre, played in the Laurie Spina carnival in Townsville.
In June, eldest granddaughter Tyler, turned the big 18!!
We had a lovely family dinner on the night and her Mum surprised her with her new wheels!
The garden is still getting lots of attention and is looking a whole lot better for it. However, the sewing room is feeling pretty lonely so will have to atone for that soon!
Will try and post again soon with some updates from the shop, new fabrics and quilts to die for! In the meantime, if you're travelling, I thought this sign was a beauty!
Talk soon, Sandy.
