another finish...

...only took two gym classes to do it too!
Yes, it's an embellished pre-printed small piece - which I consider cheating, I have to admit.
But hey, it's gone from the stash pile and into the done pile!

Violet Kitten from Candamar Designs,

which has been in the stash cupboard since before Tinkerbelle was born, LOL.

Finally, a finish

A small one I admit, but a finish all the same:

The generousity of friends

Our neighbours at the top of the driveway are good friends. Their twins are only a few months younger than Tinkerbelle, and we've known them since we all moved in nearly 6 years ago.
They're also mad keen sailors (they used to race at top level in the UK), and are the proud possessors of a 39' yacht, which they go out on nearly every weekend.
We (the four of us plus Sarah) had been invited to go sailing for the day with them some weeks back, with the date chosen being yesterday.
Given the weather for the 10 days prior (lots & lots of rain, 7degC, windy, yuk) it was not looking good.

But see for yourself...

Thanks Iain and Clare for a fabulous day!

Party time...

cos my lovely MiL, Jeanette is 70!

So the famdamily gathered to eat, talk, eat, gossip, eat, and eat some more...

The fabulous Baker boys - Kevin, Steve and Andy

Sorry about the sound - I was using the still camera all afternoon instead of the video. So please imagine hearing the girls singing Happy Birthday, very sweetly, to their adored Nana.

Caught napping!


When Sophie came to stay...

the tweens had fun talking all night and watching chic flics while eating junk food - as you do.

Jessica, Sophie and Victoria.

It was cool having you stay with us!
