Busy, busy, busy

Yikes! Where the last week go? It just whizzed by. I didn't get on here all weekend - my parents and brother came up from Melbourne for a visit and we had a great time getting out and about with them and Romily.

Romy was in great form and even showed off her new toddling abilities. She's really starting to get confident about walking and just toddles off when we're not watching - suddenly, she'll be over the other side of the room and still on her feet! Before we know it she'll be running!

On the weekend we made it to Floriade, Canberra's annual flower festival. It's based on a tulip festival in the Netherlands and we go every year. It was my Mum's first time - she's wanted to go for about 10 years - and she just loved it. It was perfect weather and not too many people were there when we arrived - it was just lovely.

It was so good to have some of my family here - even just for a few days. I really do miss them a lot and it's just so wonderful to see them rather than just talking on the phone.

Thanks for all the positive comments on my quilting :) They've been very encouraging. I'm looking forward to getting started on the quilt for the new baby too. I did buy a little more fabric for it last weekend, including the backing, which is a very cool and groovy lime green splatter fabric. Perfect for a baby to snuggle! Now just got to find some time to get cracking!

Thanks for sharing all your pictures, you've got a beautiful family. Those flowers are wonderful. We are having our fall season and the colors are also marvelous.
Keep up the quilting even if it's only a few minutes here and there, it's all worth it.
So glad you are feeling better, too.
