Vacances is French for holidays and yes our school holidays have started with a bang on Friday evening. We sat and watched the footie, not the result we'd hoped for but makes it easier for me to be taking the kids away to England on World Cup Final day lol...

Look how much they've grown, matured and learnt so much this school year. #firstday and #lastday of school 2013/2014
This is a piccie of my kids, one whole school year on, they seem to have matured and grown so much taller and slimmer this year, Amelia is a proper girl now and not so much my baby with bossiness :)

My parents new puppy, rescued pup as found at side of road outside dogs home only 6 weeks.....
Saturday was all excitement as my parents got a new puppy so there were tears at bedtime when my hubby refused to get Amelia one and even the possibility of another labrador at some point would not placate her.

@fatquarterly sample swops finished, 2 owls and one fox. All prepped and packed for #fqr14 now
Here's my mug rugs for sample swops at Fat Quarterly Retreat, I machine embroidered them and then quilted with some Aurifil 50wt and while watching Wimbledon final this afternoon i've sewed all the binding on and they are all packed up with my other stuff. I have to sew 3 labels on the Siblings quilts before a week Saturday :)

I'm feeling fairly organised in that I have all my class stuff, Fugly and swop stuff all done, labeled and packed :) now just to sort out clothes, passports and stuff to keep the kids quiet on the journey. We leave next Sunday so I might be quiet for a few days especially as I'm ferrying around children to kids clubs and swimming during the hols.

  2. My how they have grown. Have a good trip and enjoy.
