8 weeks and a lot has happened

Millrosie friends get together happened on 23rd of August, it was a fun day with lots of talking, laughter and good food, some sewing was achieved but not much.

I bought at the Melbourne craft fair Rosalie Quinlan's "Be a Blessing" Christmas stitchery. It is a lovely stitchery and I am really enjoying stitching at night watching TV.

"Be a Blessing"
I spent the last week of August and the first week of September in Sydney on grandma duties, Kate and Graeme were heading to Darwin for a conference. Steve was with me until 31st August when he flew to Perth to lead a training course for Sports Chaplaincy, he arrived back 6th September where on Sunday we had lunch for fathers day with family and friends and then came home. We both managed to be infected with a virus which we are still suffering the effects of today - we are still both coughing but well on the road to recovery. Everyone we have talked to this winter has said that it lingers on for 6 - 8 weeks, we are both over it, well and truly.

I have joined in again this year Chookyblue's Secret Santa Christmas Swap and will be doing secret sewing over the next 6 weeks. Something for my swap partners tree and something special to be opened Christmas day.
