Miss Me?

I've been away for a while haven't I? I went to Victoria to visit baby Hayley and the rest of my family.
Baby Hayley is going great by the way. Absolutely no idea why she had such a hard start to life and permanent disabilities wont be obvious until the 'milestones' start happening, but for now, she is a normal perfect baby.
So we were away for two weeks, a long time for a three year old to be away from his favorite toys and the rest of his things but we managed to survive the two weeks fairly unscathed and even made it back to WA on our original Qantas flight that was cancelled and then on again!
We did some fun things like visit Sovereign Hill which was a fun day but maybe a little bit much for William. He didn't like anyone in costume or the mine, or the steam engines but did love panning for gold! We found a few little specks, nothing that would pay off the farm though!
My baby sister (she's 27now!) announced that her and her partner got engaged. They are both chefs so I'm very excited to have 2 people in the family to talk food with!!
My new mare finally had her foal. A little (big) colt. He was a little over cooked and squashed in her belly and was born with a sore neck which prevented him from feeding by himself so needed assistance with that for a couple of days and some pain relief, but he is motoring along now. Can't wait for him to be my new riding horse in a few years (a long wait but one that will be worth it I'm sure).
I'm finally making Samuel a quilt all be it a cheats quilt! I'm just hand quilting it so I'll give some photos soon.
Anyway, I'm back!

Would love to quilt and sew, and would love to see some of your latest work.

Life sounds fun, full on, crazy and blissful. Glad little Hayley is doing well.

Ah Ballarat, coldest place on earth I swear, had to go there several times whilst working for the Uni, top temperature was 7c!
