Five bags of sugar

Kate took Keely to the clinic this morning to get weighed. She was TEN POUNDS, FIVE OUNCES!!! What a little guzzler. That's only 5 ounces lighter than 5 bags of sugar. I suppose the bottle of rice and milk she has last thing at night is helping. LOL.

We had a great holiday in Skegness last week. The caravan was clean and on a nice site. Not too far from the town centre and the beach. The weather wasn't crash hot but we only had one really wet day, so that wasn't too bad. Ainsley had her hair cut while we were away, and her ears pierced again. She looks older now...shame she doesn't always act older. LOL.

The meet-up in Derby last Saturday was a good day. We got there just after 10am and it finished at 4pm. Kate's best friend Laura came with her Mum and cousin Olivia to see Kate and Keely, and we went to their house on the Sunday to pass the day away.

Some more small finishes

All of these have been finished in the last couple of days. They will all be made into needlecases, but possibly not till I get back from my holiday now, as I won't have time tomorrow to do them.

We're off to Skegness on Saturday. Well...technically speaking we're not, we're off to Derbyshire on Saturday, to the Crafty Natter MB get-together. Then we're going to Skeggy on Monday, staying in a caravan for a few days and coming home on Friday. We're taking Kate and Keely, and also Ainsley. I expect most of the attractions will be closed as it's past the end of the season, but I daresay we'll find something to do.

Some more finishes and a water baby

I've had a couple of finishes over the last couple of days. There's another one as well, but I forgot to take a photo of it so it'll have to wait till next time. I've done this first one a few times, in different colours. It needs buttons sewn on and then it'll be made into a needlecase. It's a design called Buttons & Lace by The Calico Cat.

This next one is by Blue Ribbon Designs and I think is called Alphabet Tree. It's a freebie and it's another one I've stitched before.
Finally on the stitchy front, a primitive stitchery design by Letters Tied In Blue, but I can't remember what the design is called, and I can't reach the packet the chart is in. LOL. I could just wheel myself over but I can't be bothered. I'll tell you next time.
And here's our little water baby. I took her in the bath with me tonight - if she's here on bath night she always comes in with me - and although it doesn't look it on this photo, she loves it. She's never been in with so many bubbles before and wasn't sure at first, but once she was in properly she just lay there and let me wash her hair etc. It's the getting out bit she doesn't like.
