Well last night we babysat for the very first time - he is absolutely gorgeous - and has grown up so much - filled out and is now starting to smile. He is still very colicky but that is the first weeks for most babies. But look at him in his chair talking away to us
Right well a big sign of relief - I have finished quilting my quilt to send to the NEC for Exhibition of Quilts - just have to put the hanging sleeve on. Even if I say it myself I am very pleased with the way it has turned out and the quilting looks just right for the quilt.

We had a visitor at Art and Stitch on Wednesday, she had just woken up and was very rosy cheeked - she is such a lovely little girl. It was extra nice for us as Angela (Grumpy Grannie) was in Wales Dawn and I got big cuddles!!!
Rob and I were very pleased to see our second water lily come out yesterday, they have been struggling against the heavy rain this year. Like just about everything else in the garden.
The rest of the week has been spent quilting my quilt for the NEC and I am now on the binding so shall take some photos next week once finished. Also I have been doing a quilt for charity for my Son's friend for fund raising and it is nearly done - yeh so now I am feeling quite pleased with myself as I am nearly ahead of the game - yeh!

For Rob's Christmas present last year I bought him an Up Close Experience with Lions at Woburn Safari Park - it was a lovely day the weather was kind to us and the experience was brilliant. You get taken into the park in a land Rover and drive across country to see the animals close up. This Tiger is one of two that they have sisters taken from a German Zoo where they were not very happy. This one is very shy and stays hidden in the bushes so not normally seen from the road around the park. Because they were on concrete at the zoo they are both suffering from bad hips apparently.
He is a lovely big cat but we didn't manage to get a photo of him.
What a regal looking creature - not sure that we would have liked them so much if we had not been in the safety of the Land Rover! They have apparently been known to bite the tyres of the Land Rover and puncture the tyres - but fortunately we did not experience that on Sunday.
We went on the foot safari around Woburn after - it is a lovely place and the animals are great - look at this gorgeous marmoset - so full of character and running free in their enclosure..
There was also the most gorgeous baby giraffe but we did not get close enough to get a picture of it.
