Sorry I didn’t blog last week, as I was in New York to meet my son’s fiancé and family! What a trip! My head is still spinning around! I’m not sure if its “jet lag” or the amazing few days I have had with my family! We had the whole family together! What joy! All three boys and a new daughter from another mother! I have decided this is the best way of having daughters. Get them when they’re big! Hehe! I just have one complaint. It was far too short! When I come home from a tip I get into “withdrawal state”, I think it’s because I can’t accept that the holiday is over!
I seem to have come back to earth, but now my head is spinning with new crafting ideas. It’s so nice to be able to make homemade gifts for girls. Oh I’m planning a quilt as the wedding is next year on the 30 August!
Found the pattern now I just need to go through my stash to find the fabrics.
P.S. the photograph is J (new daughter) and my youngest and middle son walking through Central Park. The older son that is engaged had to go to a meeting!
August 30, you have all kinds of time to make that wedding quilt. 🙂 Nice your family could be together. Relatively speaking, you were close. Close in the sense of same country. I’m on the other coast.
The States is huge! The quilt I’m planning has a lot of hand work! I’m not a fan of hand work! So it’s a bit of a challenge to myself!
I’m so happy it turned out well, and what a lovely chance to get everyone together. I’d love to know what you’re planning for the wedding quilt!
It was really good to have the whole family! The quilt I’m planning is a traditional medallion with lots of hand applique! Bit of a challenge as I don’t like hand work!
Did she like her pressie???
She loved the pressie! I managed to knit her a scarf and 2 pairs of socks and a pair I’d socks for her mom.
Sounds like a perfect holiday!
It was amazing!
All so exciting!! And a new chapter begins…..you will be crafting until the cows come home. She is so lucky to be getting a mother in law who is so clever!!! Jane
It’s is very exciting! You too kind!
Oh such fun, the trip and now the planning.
It very exiting! The wedding is going to be fun!
I’m so happy you enjoyed your trip! How did your new daughter like her scarf? 🙂
Thank you! She loves it!

How did you find time to write a blog post in New York, a city full of so much to do!? I am sure it was a great trip.
I keep getting surprised hearing about your grown kids because in your photo you look like you should be surrounded by toddlers….
You to kind! Thank you!
