New Granddaughter - Sofia and news from my trip to Houston
Hi everyone - I landed at London Heathrow airport from my trip to Houston to some wonderful news, a few hours before I landed that my latest grandchild arrived - I am delighted to introduce you to beautiful little Sofia seen here with her sister Alana and my D Mike.
Both mother Natalie and baby are doing well, and Alana loves her new sister.
This is just going to be a quick post, but the second photo I want to show you is my meet up with the beautiful Dorcas that many of you know from the great blog Art Attack. Dorcas was wearing that cute little knit dress she reviewed recently on her blog, and it looked just a fantastic in real life. After a little shopping in Jo Anns we then went and enjoyed a lovely Italian dinner, where I enjoyed my favourite drink when in the USA an Appletini. Thanks for finding the time to meet with me and next time we will definitely do some sewing, or perhaps arrange for a USA TX meet!!!!!!
As you can imagine, we hardly stopped chatting all evening about sewing, past, present and future, including my plans for my wedding sewing - (I only have 11 weeks to make everything (no panic)).
While in Houston I took great advantage of Hancock's sale on patterns, and despite recently promising that I wouldn't buy any more patterns, I managed to squeeze around 30 patterns in my bag.
Well I am still a little jet lagged, and am now babysitting Alana to give mum and dad a much needed break.
I hope you are all sewing up a storm, and there will definitely be more later.......................
