Pies with Pop and Fun with Nan

How time flies....its so nice to look back sometimes 

You can just see little Corinne (3yrs old) there, she is helping Pop make pies...... she is standing on a little chair.


 then  17yrs later they are still enjoying their pie making.                                      




These days though they do the washing up which is really good.


We decided to make Reindeers for Christmas but as usual our plans went out the window so we have only just got to them, Tuesday girls liked them so that was good.

I do the fun things.....






                       Aren't they cute, I promised Sandi that we would make more for our Tuesday get together next week at her house, her hubbie wasn't happy that she didn't take any home for him so don't panic Wayne yours are coming.

                                                 Some stitching to show

...... this is my Crazy Christmas  BOM, I was hoping to get several blocks put together today but I have run out of wadding so that put paid to that idea..... this is a quilt as you go project.




Oh well I think I will start my Heart swap instead...... I have plenty of projects to choose from, far toooooo many really.

It's great when they still want to spend time with you even when it's not so cool to hang out with the oldies. Love it. Your stitchery is so cute. Hugs....
