Little crafting...

...but lots of cuddles!!
(Warning: don't read any further if you don't want to see photos of babies).

My two daughters and I had a fabulous trip last weekend visiting 'our babies.'
The wee girls are over 6 months old now and at a beautiful age for lots of giggles, smiles and interactions.
Our two little chubs ♥
Saydee and Kaliah ♥
Lots of time for cuddles ♥
Doting Aunties ♥
Doting Ganma ♥
Quick family pic before we hit the train and the plane to go home ♥
While we were in Australia I was delighted to spend an afternoon with gorgeous bloggy friends Michelle and Fiona. 
One cup of coffee lasts a long time when you are busy chatting!
I also showed Michelle my Calendar Bears quilt - her design - which The Country Yard has been stitching this year - sadly I didn't quite get the quilting finished before I went over.
Since I've been home, time has flown and I haven't achieved a huge amount on the sewing front. I am working on this sneaky project, but at the moment this (below) is all I can share :-)
Hopefully I'll have some sewing to share in my next post!

Your grandbabies are so adorable! What beautiful pictures So glad you had the chance for a good visit, and the bonus to connect with your friends!

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

the babies are so healthy looking, love those chubby legs - my girls had legs like that when they were babies, also love the jumping swings in the doorway that they are in - I had one of those years ago for my girls and when I was a baby (63 years ago) they had them too then as I remember seeing photos of my little brothers in them. It looks like you had a very good visit and you need to go a bit of a distance to visit don't you - I have to go 14 hours to see my grandkids.

Chantal said...

Such sweet babies! Glad you had a chance to go and love on them!

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

We can always sew--but spending time with family and loved ones always comes first--so glad you got to have some 'lovin time' with those babies and family and then too be able to have some friends time too--wonderful--
love and laughter, di
