Lego, Frangipanis and Stitching

First week back at work has been a bit hard to handle, but Wednesday was made very special with my two little grandsons at home with me .... Here is Jed with the Lego rescue helicopter which we spent 3 hours building on Wednesday .... he was pretty pleased with our efforts !!

Friday morning bought a beautiful cluster of frangipani flowers in the pot outside my front door !  These are my favourites !

Elliott was sent back to Sydney with some home grown passionfruit last weekend, so he has sent us this picture of Jonah enjoying the passionfruit in yoghurt ... and everywhere else too !!

We enjoyed a beautiful breakfast this morning at Tallwood .... a great restaurant north of where we live .... my granola, yoghurt, berries and sliced apple was delicious !!

And I have now finished the stitching on my second Shepherds Bush Christmas Stocking.  This one is titled "Richard" but I have made it for ..........  you will have to wait and see my next post !!   I have just to add the charms and buttons and the name ... then sew it together ....

I was very fortunate during this week to be gifted this beautiful old Singer sewing machine which now sits on top of my grandmothers Singer sewing machine ... it was owned by someone very special and her husband kindly gifted it to me .... I feel very blessed .... thank you ! xxx
