Busy...

 This week has been a busy one. We have a house full. Not only do we have Picklesticks and her offspring (the grandies) visiting, but Molly is here visiting too. We have done essential things (like go bra shopping) and fun things (like the op shop below). It's all a little madhouse here at the moment with three small children, three teenagers, five adults, and one brand new puppy.

Gotta love an op shop called "hunter gatherer"! 
Sewing is but a distant memory. The grandies will be leaving soon though which will mean a return to sewing and a return to missing them! This week all my stitching is being done vicariously via the internet and via some of my favourite books. Like this book acquired from an op shop last year. (I think) My plan for this year is to get back to some hand stitching. I didn't do much last year and there's nothing so relaxing as stitching in front of the television I think. I think my word for 2013 may just be relax!

Love this book!
Next up, my girls are busy upcycling old books into 2013 diaries. Sooooo pretty!
