Little Miss Busyness

Well Annabelle is here to stay again and I don't know what I fed her yesterday but she sure is full of beans today.  I have to constantly see what she is up to.  Maybe she is trying to tell me to do the housework. I thought I did enough work yesterday.  Or perhaps it was just the fact that we were outside in the fresh air.  Today the air is just a bit too fresh, more like cold! Actually I want to sit down and do some cardmaking as I need to make a couple of cards, but I don't know if I will get a chance.  At least not until shes asleep and I will probably be tired then too.

She decided to set herself up in my scrapbooking room earlier.  She loves her doondas (granddads) photos from his 60th birthday earlier in the year.  She found some photos of these with all the family in it. Maybe she will be a scrapbooker too.  Happy days....

threads of my life

Well I have not blogged for a while.  It is so nice to see some fine weather at long last. 
I have been doing a variety of activities.  That is probably my biggest problem. I like so many things.

I finished my quilt wallhanging for my gd and am now working on an applique one for my son and daughter in law.  However that will have to go on hold for a while as I managed to crush my index finger in the wood splitter the other day.  I don't think a needle will be going near my finger for a while.  It is hard enough trying not to bump it.

One of my other interests is scrapbooking and I recently attended a class with Trina Mcclune held at Wanganui.  We started four pages and so far I have completed three layouts.  


This weekend I am off to a card group that I belong to.  I get so inspired by seeing other peoples work.  There are so many talented people around. 

My grandchildren also play a pretty important part in my life and I had my two year old granddaughter to stay for a week.  She is soo helpful it is such fun.

well that is all for today.
