Bits and pieces ....

The past week has been a bit of a blur after a midnight dash to Sydney and then on to Newcastle to see my mum who had a turn last Monday evening .... thankfully she has recovered but has now begun the rounds of the specialists to discover the cause .... long slow times ahead I think ... but here is my lovely mum recovering beside her beautiful flowers ...


This exquisite piece of embroidery was done by my Gran many years ago before my mother and father were married ....  Mum's vase of flowers were sitting on top of it and I just had to take some close ups ....


This is the same Gran who taught me to crochet when I was 10 years old and was an amazing source of inspiration .... along with my mum ....


So after spending a couple of days away with my mum and my sisters I came back home late last week and we had the pleasure of the company of all our four children at home for the weekend from all over Australia .... one son from Perth flew in, one daughter from Townsville flew in and son and his girlfriend and daughter and her husband from Sydney all arrived on Friday night for an early Christmas weekend as our youngest daughter Chelsea can't get down here for Christmas this year.   It was a lovely weekend shared with friends and family and after the events with Mum earlier in the week, it showed just how special it is when families get together !


Late Friday night when they all arrived .... Tim, Sam, Chelsea (her new puppy Bailey who flew with her from Townsville), Ashleigh and Elliott .... xxxxx 


And here are some of the inspirational works of art on display at the Christmas Gathering last weekend in Melbourne with Leanne Beasley and Gail Pan ....


Lots of lovely inspiration and work here ....


This reminds me that I have to make a couple of new Christmas stockings for this year !


Such gorgeous work and such lovely ladies to stitch with ....
