Well I thought I would update my blog - I know I am terribly erratic in keeping my blog up to date, I read others who are so regular that it makes me feel very quilty.  Anyway here I am - last weekend whilst watching the Chinese Grand prix I decided to teach myself to crochet - I had previously attempted it but with no success so above is my very first granny square - it was great fun - I have made another five since - which Angela tells me is nowhere near enough and that I should be doing two a night!!  I will do some more when I find time but for the time being I am so pleased that I managed  these, even though they are very basic but it is a start.

I made these lovely table mats for our  three little girls - they are such fun and lovely girls - I thought they would like their own placemats. 

Leo came to stay last weekend as Caroline was having a 30th birthday party - he is such a gem and he likes to pose for the camera.

Well I have been making yet another bag - they call me the bag lady so I guess I have to live up to my reputation.!!
 This is such a great holdall - will be lovely for taking on holiday later this year - or an overnight bag
 Oh just look at these yummy buttons - they have just come into Art and Stitch and I had to have five - Caroline was in the shop  at the time and was horrified at my extravagence  - but they were absolutely perfect .
I do love this bag this is the side view .

I am busy making a quilt at home for a young Lass that Rob works with - it is Cake Swap and the layer cake is Dogwood Trail - it is so pretty - just need a few more hours in a day at the moment. She is really looking forward to me getting it finished.

We have just had our frontage block paved and it is gorgeous - the young gentleman is my youngest son on the phone as always!!!!


  1. It's always lovely to have a catch up with your blog Pam and to see the lovely little people in your life :-)

  2. Your granny squares are lovely. Two was the minimum you should be doing in an evening, so you are far behind as you haven't done any at all! Maybe it's time you were sent to the naughty step.
    Isn't it nice that the girls liked their easter pressies so much. Leo is growing up so fast, he is such a lovely happy little chap.
