This post is for my mum, who was horrified that I'd posted a photo of her sans make-up and without her hair done for all the world to see! I told her that all the world would see a happy grandma with her two gorgeous grandkids (still in the pyjamas), but she still wasn't thrilled...muahahaha!
Anyhoo, as I mentioned in said post, the only crafting going on around here over the past two weeks was Grandma's. Here's what she was working on while she was here. This is an embroidery sampler she's made, which will become a groovy cushion. I think it's fabulous. A close-up is below.Although saying Grandma was the only crafty one wasn't strictly true. Romily is still loving chopping bits of paper up and sticking them randomly in her drawing books...as you can see!
And to make amends, here are some photos of Grandma (this time with hair done and make-up on - better Mum?!!)
And with Huppa and Romily just before Grandma and Huppa made the 8-hour journey back to Melbourne.
Thanks again mum for all your help during your much-appreciated visit. It helped a lot. I was also very happy that you got some extended one-on-one time with your newest grandson.
Here are a few gratuitous pictures of Tristan - including a bone fide smile :)
(Romily thinks he looks like a super hero with arms akimbo like in this photo!)
And, yes, the essay was done in time, although I don't think it'll be an award winner. Carl did read it and I was pleased to learn it did hang together okay!
So, now onto Marina's quilt, which I have to finish by Sunday night. On, on!
