Our adorable twin have recently turned 2YO and came for a sleepover at nannies and we had a special lunch together.This is mum with Chloe ( I think) and she has really enjoyed her lunch.
I hope this is Hayley, but I may be wrong as they are very much alike. They are lovely little girls but get into a lot of mischief and I think this is because they lead each other astray.

This is Papa reading a book and tthey love to read and are always bringing books or puzzles for you to help them with. We had a great couple of days together and then off they went back home to see daddy.

I finally have delved into my UFO box and finished 2 projects and I still have about 6 more to go.

This one is from Xmas 2009. It was a sew along from Gail Pan and I had finished the stitcheries but couldn`t decide on how to finish. I decided to add an extra border and add some more words explaining that it was what I wanted at Xmas time and then I just sewed on and it was finished.

This is a doily that I started at a workshop nearly 2 years ago. It is Butterflies and Blossoms by Leanne Beasley and was easy to do except for adding the ricrac, I didn`t have the right size ricrac and it was hard to get it on where you could see it on the border. Much reverse sewing to get it right and it still is not even all the way around. But I guess a bloind man would be happy to see it.

I recently visited my daughter and family at the farm. At this time of year they are well and truly into lambing and calving and there is always an orphan or two or they may have been rejected by their mums. For whatever reason the babies end up back at the house ready to be hand raised by willing children with mums help.

Here is my GS feeding a lamb and he wouldn`t smile for Nan so I took the photo anyway. They can drink a full bottle of special lamb milk in a minute or two and still want more.

My GD also wants to feed the orphans but she is too little to hold the heavy bottle of milk so she pretends after they have eaten.

The calf gets fed from a trough with attached nipple because he is too strong for the kids and would knock them over trying to get to the milk. He gets the formula made specially for cows.

Then its back to the house to do the washing up and little Emmas bucket is nearly as big as she is.
