Its been a busy month in my household.  We have had a week in Bright, Vic., moved house, had a week in WA to welcome our new granddaughter Lola Alice, born 10 May.  The downside to all this is that I have not sewn one stitch, even Lola's quilt awaits its borders.  Originally I intended to take it with us when we went 10 days after she was born, putting the borders on when I knew what sex this new baby was, best laid plans!!!! She was 10 days late so consequently the quilt didn't get its borders before we went.  Was a very good excuse for a shopping trip though.  Boy there is some absolutely gorgeous things out there for babies these days.  No longer the 'Bonds' nighties for the newbies!!!!!!!  Hopefully my life might settle down a bit now  and I can get some more blocks done for my 'Sylvias' quilt before building a new house takes over my life; selecting carpet, paint etc. etc.  will be fun though as we built our last house when we got married 43 years ago.  Imagine all the new mod cons I can have this time.  Though I must admit I had them all back then, only difference is they are no longer mod cons.  Dishwasher was my own two hands and a twin tub washing machine was a wonder.  I am looking forward to a trip to Bacchus Marsh with the Geelong Scquilters at the end of the month, so I better get to it and get some hand sewing organized if nothing else for this month.
