I have enjoyed making this Biscornu pincushion .... although it has been a long time in the making ....

The front and the back are different ....

I love the colours !!   This was a kit purchased from Sue Hawkins in the U.K. 

I've decided it looks great sitting in this beautiful bunch of native flowers ...

Now to get on to some more of my unfinished projects !!

Hard to believe we have now been home for over a week and back into the thick of work etc .... holidays seem like so long ago !!

It was so nice to fly into Sydney and then catch the train to the quay and then ferry to Manly to stay with Sam and Nadia .... there is nothing quite so welcoming as Sydney Harbour on a beautiful day !!

Then it was off to the football for the Swans and Hawks match ... Hawks won !!

Then the next day was off to Scarborough Pub on the headland for catch up lunch with all the kids and grandchildren !! So nice to see them all !!

Back to work on the Monday which was pretty full on !!  Then we got to catch up and meet a new arrival for our great friends Ashleigh and Chris ... Addison Maree was born while we were away ! 

Such a little cutie !!

Had some fun with Jed and Clay who both have flu and have given it to their mum too !!! And now Davey !!!

We also had a beautiful lunch at St Isidore on Sunday in Milton ... a special thank you from some lovely friends who we helped out !! 

And picked up some gorgeous Australian natives at the markets too !!

Also got to catch up with Jonah and his mum and dad in Sydney on the way back too so have had lots of grandchildren cuddles to make up for our time away !!!!
