Yesterday started out as " I'm stuck home and not at quilting because Dave has a day off and isn't in a mood to go out" but as it turned out, that was meant to be.
Late morning I had a phone call from #1 son - who has been here precisely three times in three and a half years - to say he was working in Castlemaine and what time would I be picking up David? When he found out that we were at home for the day, he came and had lunch with us.
It wasn't a very LONG visit because we discovered the hard way that his system seems to have become sensitised to cats - horrors - wheezing, spluttering and a nasty rash meant antihistamines and a race for the great outdoors. I'm not sure that was any better - goat hair!!!!!
anyway here's both my boys
Stephen is one week into growing a beard and not at all sure if he's going to keep it but I like it so far... granted he looks a bit grim here but I think it's mainly due to the whole not-being-able-to-breathe thing.
and still speaking of my eldest:
This went home with him for Master Riley.
It's a really simple 'I-spy' quilt - lots of things to talk about - made a few years ago and always intended for the first grandie. It's sturdy, bright and hopefully my DDIL won't be afraid to use this one.
Apparently she has said that she feels like the wedding quilt isn't really theirs... that they are merely it's custodians ... and while it's lovely that they appreciate it ... well ... bed quilts are meant to be used.
