FNWF and other bits

Last night I joined all my blogging friends all over the Auss and did some stitching. Cheryll from Gone Stitchin' was our lovely hostess once again...thanks Cheryll xx
I didn't do a whole lot last night just some more of this...
which resulted in some more of these...
They are so relaxing to sit quietly and stitch which was just what I needed because Mr R. and I spent the day at the Camping and Caravan Show oohing and ahhing and mainly doing a whole lot of sighing "one day!" We did have a purpose though and that was to try and purchase a portable fridge for our road trips as you can't have the camper fridge on with the lid down whilst travelling. We got a great bargain and came home with a big smile and a very empty wallet.....least the Bundy Sars will be chilled now.
At the show they had a Vintage Caravan and I just had to take a couple of pics....her name is "Betty"!!!
Isn't she just sooo cute. She is the palest prettiest pink and inside is full of retro 1950's gear...
Check out the cushions on the bed....
Love the red polka dot curtains lol... Then we had the 'rinky dink' Vintage camper van....
We feel we travel in the lap of luxury looking at this number.
So after our big day there was a spot of stitching and some dozing in the chair and an early night. I am looking forward to checking out what all you girls got up to though.
Now if you are tired of seeing my gorgeous Grandchildren look away now because I want these piccies recorded for my blog book.
Here is sweet little Charlotte (nicknamed Sleeping Beauty by her Dad) She was 6 weeks old yesterday.
And where's my close up Mr De Mille....
Ohhh she is so gorgeous!!!
This photo of little Erin with her eyes open was taken by her big cousin Zoe...
She is 2 weeks old already. What a honey....can you tell that I am a bit partial to our new bubbas.

I think that is about it for me....except to ask you all to pray for a very ill family member of mine who needs all your prayers at present. Thank you.

Have a wonderful weekend folks and be kind to yourself and those you encounter.
Blessings Michelle xxx

  3. I like your hand sewn circles. I have just been thinking of doing some pieced quarter circles. The babies look very cute. One can never really get tired of cute babies. The caravans look great. I follow a blog of a lady that goes glamping with her friends in vintage caravans. They are all done up with lovely quilts and curtains and vintage kitchen appliances. It looks like a fun way to camp. I will be thinking of your sick family member.

  5. Precious little people photos Michelle - we are allowed to brag about our 'grandies' - they are our reward after bringing up our children! Vintage caravans are all the go now aren't they - seem to be a bit more upmarket than they were originally!!

  8. Those girls are beautiful Michelle and Grandma's are allowed to brag. I love those vintage caravans. I said to Chris we need to get one of those small campers to drag behind our hot rod. Chris is over 6ft so not sure where his legs would go if we did get one. LOL. Hugs.....
