Baby Quilts

I finished the baby quilts for the twins born to a couple in our church. They had a boy and girl so I quilted one in blue and the other in pink. I was pleased with the outcome. I will now start one for a friend of my daughter in South Africa. Her and her husband have just adopted their third baby and we will take it over when we go at the end of July....better get started!!

My daughter, SIL and grandsons are on their way back to South Africa, we had a great time with the boys staying, their mum & dad arrived back from USA this morning and then they all flew out to SA this evening...they will be tired. We had a trip into London and met up with Uncle Ben, visited Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace and St James' Park. We arrived home with 2 very tired boys. We also went out to Ivinghoe Beacon one afternoon, took a picnic and the kites. This was a real hit and the Ordnance Survey pillar served as a great place to sit and hold onto the kites, I think Joe could have sat there all day!!

We have these munchkins staying at the moment, they were all supposed to be on route to USA to meet up with Daddy before they all travelled back to South Africa...however it looks like it will just be Mummy going because they haven't been able to get USA visas for the boys (they have SA passports at the moment) so they will stay here in the UK with Grandma & Grandpa!! Yeah!!

Last Sunday was a special day for these two little scrummies....they were dedicated to the Lord. We went down to Devon for a long weekend and Uncle Ben came down with us. Its not often we get these two to sit like this for a photo but Uncle Ben was holding something that they both really wanted!

We had lots of fun on Saturday, out and about

Primrose wasn't sure she liked the smell of the flowers that Uncle Ben bought for Mummy!

Friday evening we went for a stroll on the beach while Grandpa babysat (and watched the football!)

The girls being prayed for during the church service (the big windows didnt help the quality of photos)

After church we went for a picnic with friends. We certainly thank God for these precious two and also for the new little baby to be born in the new year!

This post is for Joseph & Jesse

When Grandma and Grandpa were away in our caravan we went and visited the Imperial War Museum and saw these 'planes. The top picture is the Tiger Moth that Grandpa went up in, he took over the controls and flew it for a few minutes. He really enjoyed his trip and when we come to visit you in South Africa in the summer I will show you the video clips on my laptop.
We love you!

Caravan in Suffolk

We have just come home from our first trip in our little caravan...we had a great time exploring the Suffolk countryside and coast. I would have liked a bit longer but maybe we will go back again.
We went to Southwold over on the east coast of UK, we walked along the pier and then along the sea front past all the lovely beach huts and had a picnic on the beach. I had seen an article about the Boating Lakes and Cafe in the Country Living magazine so we walked back and stopped in the cafe for a cup of tea and cake. We could have sat there all day, it was so peaceful. The weather was a little overcast, but still enjoyable.

Lovely basket chairs and blankets for chilly days!
