Enjoying Time with my Grandies

 My oldest GD Madison found a link on utube for making these bows and while in spotlight with her mum bought a bag of hair clips so when she came over to stay this week she asked me if i had any material for her so that she could make these bows.
Lol now let me think now do i have any material ,lol,she had a ball going through my stash finding material that she wanted to turn into bows.
Madie made about 16 and Elissa made about 5 i think and i made one for Adie also ,i was surprised how quick they are to make and the girls had no problems using the hot glue gun,here is the link to how to make bows.

Change of Plans

 I was supposed to be spending the day with my lovely Gisborne friends which i had been looking forward to as we were going to stitch at a patchwork shop in Gisborne,sounds like a fun day girls,but a change of plans as
 These 2 little grandson's are not well,Dempsey has had croup and has been on steroids and now little Murphy had an emergency dash to Dr's as he was having trouble breathing,he was given steroids too and thankfully came good it was touch and go and close to calling an ambulance from the Dr's,phew these little tackers sure give you a scare,so the change of plans is my daughter needs me ,so girls i will be there next time you all get together.
 Also i had a beautiful letter from from friend Tracy who was concerned as we have not been getting many bees in our garden,so she sent this lovely letter with a pkt of poppy seeds to encourage the bees,what a sweetie you are Tracy,thankyou my friend.
 I have made a couple of kitchen hand towels to send off to some friends because i like them,lol.
cheers shez
