Hi Everybody
Have been keeping up with all the latest news, sorry have not posted as have been working hard at work and coming home to work some more, did manage to get my Angel swap sent and I know it has been received, and then there was the Advent swap to finish and post and I finally finished that last Friday and have now sent that on it's way to the Netherlands to Monique, hopefully will arrive in the next week. I have also sent of Cheryl-lee's (daughter) swaps as well as she has been working hard as a trainee manager at one of the McDonald stores in town and had to go on course this week. Cheryl-lee's Advent swap partner was Rachel from the USA and she has sent her parcel to Cheryl-lee the day before we sent ours, so we are keeping our eyes on the mail.
Am having a week off work and have my sister visiting and her two beautiful children and I have been sick, note to self don't get sick on holidays, don't function well when sick just lie in bed and sleep.
Well that's all for now, next time will remember to show picture of what I sent to my Angel, Jennifer in Washington. Love and Hugs Deb

Have not been doing a lot of work the last two weeks as you can see have been kept busy and then last week was Rachelle birthday and had to make her present but I forgot to photograph them to show you so Rachelle if you are reading this we will need photo's please. I did however make a couple of bags out of Natalie Bird's new book "Sweet Sentiments" and they turned out great and I did make one similar for Rachelle for her birthday.

Last Weekend was two very special boys birthday party, two of my grandsons, brothers no less, have their birthday celebrations, Jed was 4, the day after mine and Tani was 12 two days later. So we have a very big August at our house with all the birthdays this month. My youngest son is a baker, Sean and with his help the boys mum, Cheryl-lee, my oldest, made the two cakes in my kitchen but did thankfully cleaned up the mess. They cakes tasted as nice as they looked.

and I had a birthday that my children surprised me with a very nice meal with family and of course could not help but to use number candles. The cake was beautiful and was called a Treasure cake, mmmm.

And look who is this with white glove Why Rachelle of course out to check out all of the quilts at the quilt show.
