Last Saturday was the monthly quilt group MeetUp and I worked on Ringo Lake clue #3. Below are most of the number I need for my smaller quilt version, no idea when the rest will be done but I will probably take them and Clue #5 [due out tomorrow] to Boston to complete.
They are not yet trimmed either, this week before Christmas is just too busy. This is our week for the Boy and we have been busy with concerts, shopping, baking, gingerbread house making etc! Thank goodness no homework this week I think that might have been a struggle!
The concert was a great success and Elf #1 performed his role very well, never missed a cue and spoke more clearly than anyone else. He knew all the music, "we have six songs" he said. We were very proud of him and he was so excited to have us all there to watch. He said "the whole family is here!"
Some more serious cookie making this week and you can see it takes great focus and determination to get all those cookies painted with frosting! We found the silicon basting brush the perfect tool.
This afternoon was VIP day when the grandparents and other extended family helpers are invited to assist in the very sweet, sticky process of the gingerbread house construction. Matthew's house is a be-jewelled masterpiece.
And finally, we had a family dinner last Sunday and I had a nice cuddle with great grand-daughter Paisley, such a sweet cuddly armful, she is a snuggler! Don't you love the animal print leggings?!
