Some More Embroidery from South America

A week off!

My son is taking my grand daughter for home schooling this week so I have a whole week off!  What a luxury?  I love my grand daughter but not having any time or space to myself is limiting.  I have done little sewing and I am always so tired that I don't feel like doing any.  School starts at 8am and there are breakfasts to make, hair to braid, putting her bed away for the day and making sure she takes her medication, which can lead to difficulties and everything else that goes with parenting.  How every did I manage three children, a husband, a home and a full time job?  Granted I was younger then.  And this week past I had a birthday as well.

My island friends called in for afternoon tea and gave me a new blouse that is just right for the island.

My husband forgot the day as the family was taking me out to lunch on the following Saturday at the Sailing Club.  But, when the weekend came I was spoilt.  He gave me some nice jewellry.

My grand daughters said that I like birds and flowers, so I got both.

Plus the added bonus of pretty paper and a card.

My little grand daughter (the artist) also gave me some note paper and a pen which she decorated the top 5 sheets of.

And after a lovely, but exhausting day, we had a wonderful sunset to look at on the ferry home.

I quite liked my birthday this year.
