Eden aged 14 months

Hi All
I've had a busy few weeks and it's going to get even busier as K is moving house next week. I'll be having my 3 eldest grandchildren for a few days while mum and dad get them moved in then it's off to their new home.We'll be doing Felt-making which will keep them busy and they're looking forward to designing their own pieces.
As you can see from the photo, Eden is now walking everywhere, and talking all the time. She's so cute!
My garden project has been put on hold while we focus on the house move but we've had quite a lot of rain over the past few days down here, so little opportunity to do anything....

That's all the news for now...except to say Skype is great - met new relatives and caught up with others...technology can be great......when it works!

Eden aged 13 months

Hi All

Today I was determined to get some photos of my granddaughter Eden.

All of my grandchildren have loved the camera from birth but - shock - horror, Eden cried each time I took a photo and was angrily brushing her cheek...a grandchild that hates having her photo taken. I think from now on, I'll have to take her pics when she's asleep but she has beautiful blue eyes which we won't see on photos for a while. Maybe she has an exclusive magazine deal we don't know about. Anyway, here is one I got today...but she is clearly not impressed so I couldn't get her lovely smile either.

Link-up to long-lost family in Canada

Hi All,

Well what can I say but WOW! I finally got started with Skype last week and by chance, I typed in our long lost cousins' names in Canada, and they have Skype too and they Skype-called me last night. I think it's amazing...and to think that we could chat like that for the first time was mind-blowing....and have video link-up too.... and it was free.....

We had a lovely chat about family and quilting and shopping and cows in the back yard and it was fantastic. It's amazing that the separation of the family line happened some generations ago and to look at my cousin, she is so like my Auntie P in Liverpool. Quite weird really - but great.

My sis is also getting her Skype sorted out so we can conference call together - looking forward to that.
Isn't technology just great! And I've had lots of on-line chats with my quilting buddies where we've put the world to rights!
All power to the Quilters!!!! including the nutty ones....x

Hi All

I can't believe that we are in July now....only 10 days for my daughter's birthday. I'm making her & A, a retro Black and White Quilt as she's been waiting a long time. The top is now complete so just got to sort out the wadding and backing fabrics and get quilting.....

We've had a week of hot..hot..hot weather (too hot for me, day and night) but today it is quite bland with a good breeze to cool us. We've also lost the sunshine but we haven't had any rain or floods as other parts of the UK have so we've been lucky.

The local town festival is on this weekend so I may go and meet family there if the weathers not too hot....
