Birthday Parties and Pincushions

This weeks pincushion is one I made a while ago .... an adaptation of a Sue Hawkins design which I found in an old magazine .... I love the colours and as usual I do love doing canvas work embroidery ... so this is where my needle and thread are planted on this sunny Tuesday ....


And speaking of sunny Tuesdays .... this was my view on my morning walk .... it is so lovely to be home after another big weekend away .....


We had a long weekend in Sydney celebrating my niece's 30th birthday, Malia's 1st birthday and another get together with my cousin Margot for her birthday ..... and that was all following a medical emergency on the Friday morning where my brother in law collapsed and was revived by his two children Kate and Drew ..... here they are with "lifesavers" .... he was raced to hospital and had surgery and now all is well again thank goodness ....


We celebrated with lots of family at Kate's 30th birthday lunch on Saturday .....   my sister Wendy and Kate ....


Some of the ladies in our family .... Wendy, Kate, Nadia, my mum, Ash, Andrea, Chelsea, Krystal and me ....



Kate had a lovely time snuggling with baby Leo ....



Our boys, Sam and Elliott, with Kate and Leo ....



More babies .....


David and I loved having all our grandchildren together .... here we are with Leo, Malia, Jonah hiding in the background, Jed, Lyndie and Clay ....


And then we had Nadia and her 25 week bump in the photo as well .... so technically we have 6 and a half grandchildren !!



All the kids disappeared and came back dressed up in double denim which created a few laughs !!



A denim sandwich ....



On Sunday we celebrated Malia's 1st birthday ....


She loved the balloons !!


Elliott did a great job on the birthday cake !!


She loved being the centre of attention ....


And enjoyed her birthday cake and flowers ....


Beautiful flowers ...



Lyndie in the little jumping castle full of plastic balls ....


And then it was on to my cousins 60th birthday with her family .... it was lovely to join them and have yet another glass of champagne to celebrate our birthdays .... my sisters Robyn and Wendy, my mum and my aunty in the background and Margot and myself ....



It was a huge weekend following Friday's drama but it certainly highlights the importance of family ......
