Its Labor Day over here in the States (well it is tomorrow) so we get an extra long weekend - yippee! We have celebrated this time by eating followed by a bit of eating...eating some more...and then finishing it off with eating (or is that just how it feels?)
We managed to put a stop to the eating for a couple of hours to get out with the kiddies and go for a leisurely walk...
Jay with the kiddies...
Joshua found a new friend on the bridge.
and just for comparisons - a photo from a walk on the same bridge in October 2006 (10 months ago!) Mads looks so young to me here!
I thought it was about time that I got around to photographing the baby quilt I finished (whilst dosed up on heavy-duty painkillers!) for a friend of mine who is expecting her first.
I can see errors when I look at these photos - but no matter how many errors there are, it has been made with a whole lot of love and I pray thats what he/she feels when they are wrapped in it.
A shot of the backing fabric (which I backed Maddy's quilt in too) because I ADORE it and have practically bought the whole fabric shop out of it now - its so cute, like little yellow apple-blossoms...love it!
Anyhow - we still have one whole day of labor day left and I am sure we will fill it with even more eating!
Blimey - how can I possible forget to show this - my new obsession (like I needed another one) little purses...this one is to save me the continual embarrassment of tampons flying out of my bag when I grab my purse...now I have a discreet little purse to put them in.
