So... I got carried away taking photos of Dante yesterday afternoon, and this is what happened:

 ABOVE:  "NO"... stop with the photos Grandma!
So I conned him by saying I would photograph his shoes... he loves his shoes!

ABOVE:  So there ya go, one fat foot!  Can't have laces cos then ya can't get the freakin' shoe on.

ABOVE: Then I managed to sneak a few more cute ones of him.
He's a very photogenic child, as are all my grandkids I think.

Not that I get a chance to take many photos of the majority of them.  Oh well... will just have to make do with the ones that I can annoy with me camera!  *smiles*

Hoping like hell Lacy, Keera, Kelly, Rena and maybe Russell can come for Christmas, then I can go snap crazy!

Today I'm still car-less, so I'm going to catch a bus to Manukau, then walk the rest of the way to Patchwork class.  It's not that far, and I'm only going to take some hand sewing, so I don't have to lug my sewing machine onto the bus and down the road.  THAT would be just too much.

My car should be ready late afternoon, so maybe we will pick it up on Saturday morning, rather than me have to drive it home in rush hour, friday night traffic.  It would take me well over an hour to travel the 'normal' 20 minute journey.  Stuff that!

So, that's me plans for this morning, hopfully Bex can pick me up after my class, otherwise I shall just jump on a bus again.


I'm happy to say I caught the bus within a minute of arriving at the bus stop, and it only took about 20 minutes to get to the mall in Manukau.  Then I walked for about 8 minutes to the Patchwork class.  

It was raining, but what the hell... I had a brolly and didn't get too wet.

Today I was just hand stitching the binding on my Mariner's Compass wall hanging.  I was telling the Tutor about how crappy the machine applique looked around the little dots, so she said she would show me how to do 'Invisible Hand Applique'...

ABOVE: Ta da!  It's not perfectly invisible, but I will get better at it!  I don't think I'd do it on a big project with lots of applique, but for small projects I might, particularly one's that have small pieces.

This will end up being a mug rug.  

Lunchtime... off to find food.

Well... a quiet afternoon, caught up on some TV programmes I'd taped.
Thought about dinner... we are having left overs on toast.  It's always an easy dinner on a friday.

Later on I shall be doing some more sewing, I've got one Christmas gift I must get done soon so I can post it off.

Apart from that, it should be a quiet evening too.

End of Day: well as I thought, the evening went as planned.  I got some sewing done while watching Coronation Street, so am happy.
nite nite
