A Busy Week

This week was a busy one, not stitching wise, but every other way.

First some stitching pictures. I had a lot of starts and not many finishes but this week will hopefully see those finished.

A little more progress on my biscornu

My sister returned to Australia on Thursday and reached Australia safe and sound. We will miss her and Sebastian loads.
Then at the weekend my third eldest boy Alan made his First Holy Communion. We celebrated that on the Saturday and on Sunday went out for the day to a pet farm.

Here are some pictures from over our weekend.

Alan on his Communion Day

We did get to see lots of animals from sheep, goats, pigs, bunnies, ducks, geese, cows, chickens, deer, donkeys, llama’s, ostrich and emu’s. Each of the children got a bag of food to feed the animals and thats what you see them doing in some of the pictures the others are the fun they had on the playground when we took a break from looking at the animals. We also walked a nature trail and saw an old Irish Cottage which the children found fascinating.

Hope you all enjoyed the update this week, not much stitching but lots of fun I think you’ll agree.
Please feel free to comment away as I do love reading your wonderful comments.
Until next week.
Happy stitching
