Today

I have been to the Seachange group over at Barwon Heads, I did a little stitching and chatted to a lady who has had a Parkinsons diagnosis, we were comparing what she is going through with what hubby has been through and what we saw on the Four Corners programme last night. Not the most uplifting of conversations, but better to be talking about it than dwelling, and if I can provide and ear then all is good!!  I managed to get some stitching done on Michelle's  Aussie decorations today..
I need to check the pattern as I think something is missing from baby Roo, half an ear maybe?

I made a start on the owl...

the clamshells are coming along well, I am in the process of joining two rows on the bottom and another near the middle, I think this is probably long enough, I have clamshells over so might now add some on the sides, will have to think on that. The poor clamshells are very creased from being folded and unfolded and in and out of bags!

this afternoon I put the fruit together for a Christmas cake, I found a gluten free recipe so am giving it a go...the fruit mix is soaking in brandy tonight!!
While looking for a comment son # 2 (Shane) made on face book I stumbled across these photos, stills from a short movie he was in recently.


Love them and want to keep them.

He had great fun making this movie, acting is something he wants to pursue. One for the memory book!!
I had better go and sort some dinner!!
Happy sewing.

Stitching is looking great. I love the thread you are using. I am only on row 2 of my clamshells...wow, yours look fantastic! What a handsome lad you have and he certainly looks at home there x

Ooo what a hunk your son is!!! Sarsha did makeup for a short film a couple of years ago and was in the promos. Love your clamshells and your Christmas critters as I call them. My little mat is nearly finished.

Love the pics of Shane - how special to find those! Your clamshells top is moving along. Love the embroidery you are doing. What fun to make progress while chatting with someone. I'm sure if she just got her diagnosis, talking to someone familiar with it was a huge help to her. It's what we don't know that always comes back to bite us.
