A little bit of Loxton

On the weekend I had 3 lovely days in

Loxton July 2008

I had a great time with Gail, Leanne, Rosalie & Viv and lots of old friends from last year....... a big thank you to Trish for hosting the weekend and feeding us.

Loxton July 2008

On Friday we made one of Rosalie's dolls.......Rosalie was a great help and stuffed and painted shoes & faces for us here she is with Tiff - Trish's daughter who had the day off school to stitch with us we were sure she learnt more with us than she would have at school........that may not have been a good thing.
