How embarrassing is this ???????

                   
 I was doing the usual grocery shopping and looked down at my hand to find this ..........

my little car key ring decoration with its stuffing hanging out and all the stitching coming apart so I quickly gathered it up and put it in my handbag....... how embarrassing for a crafty girl.


 Of course you can guess what happened when I got home ........ the old with the new.....


                                    I can now hold my head up high when shopping.


Last Friday I was lucky to be able to attend another Grandparents day with my Grandsons at their school.
Jake is in year 12 and Clayton year 8 so I got to enjoy a class with both of them, its such a wonderful thing to participate in, I even got to join in drawing in the art class with Clayton and to be served coffee and lunch by the boys....... sadly I didn't get any photos of the day but before we went there I couldn't resist taking a photo of Jake's lunch bag..... its so cute, he is a bit of a character and loves his little lunch bag...... even if he is 16yrs old.


On the stitching front I have this pin cushion project that I'm doing with Tereasa but it is taking us a longggg time to finish but the end is in sight. 



I also made this small wall  hanging which has been waiting to be done for quite a long time. Tereasa gave me the hanger ..... Laurel gave me the Norfolk Island painted panel and I was lucky to go there last year so this has a lot of sentimental meaning.


3 more blocks of Lynette Anderson's "Crazy Christmas" quilt are done so I am getting there slowly.



Well that's it for today..... I'm off to do some more stitching.

I so enjoy Grandparents days - it would be quite a day going along with older classes. Lovely sewing, and so pleased the key ring decoration is now replaced.

Can you fix it and have two key fobs? Love Clayton's lunch bag - mine is very cute with ladybirds. The crazy Christmas quilt is fantastic - I love it.
