It's May!

Wow! It's May. Quite unbelievable! This photo is Rosie's punchneedle bag from Inspired Stitches that I forgot to post in my projects post. Isn't it pretty? Last month saw Miss 16 turn into Miss 17. It also saw me post off my Redwork cushion swap to someone in NSW. And now it is May. We have an engagement party coming up this month. Mr 20 is engaged to his girl and their engagement party is early in May. Mr 8 is really looking forward to the engagement party because he doesn't remember Mrs 24's engagement or wedding at all and feels he should know what an engagement party is like. (Well, he was only 3!) Miss 22 is uncomfortable at the moment. She came home early from her mission because of ill health and has just discovered this week (after a CT scan) that she has a lump in her tummy which needs surgical removal. It is not a dangerous lump at all, but it requires an operation - which is not one of her favourite things - and is causing her discomfort. (Seriously, who does like operations? Those with Munchausen syndrome aside, of course!) So that's where we all are at the beginning of May. Still hoping to move, with no move on the horizon! I hope May brings you everything you are wishing for! (And me too!)

How wonderful: an engagement! Congratulations!

I'm sure Miss 22 will be well looked after by her lovely family (especially by Mum). I hope the tummy problem is fixed good and fast.

i saw photos of all you girls at your stitching weekend and i was a little envious. mind you, i don't do any stitchery so there's not much point going.
i hope all goes well with the operation - it's never nice to go through it but hopefully her health will improve muchly.
