Busy Bee

Well, it's true, I have been a busy bee, but this piece is called Busy Bee......I just adore the button! How cute is it????

I have also finished Shepherds Bush 2008 Retreat Scissor Fob.....I still put 2008 on it, as I wanted to remember when I got it, not when I stitched it

Last, but not least, I wanted to update you all with some family life. My eldest daughter (15, nearly 16) is in year 9. All year 9's must go to Melbourne (an hour away) for 3 weeks of school. It's called CITY CITE.
I must say, I was so scared the first day, that I was contacting her all the time to make sure she was alright. Especially since one of the girls was hit by a car on the first day after 3 hours and ended up in a coma! This girl had only been at school a week after 4 months off after having brain surgery. I think she finally understood why I was stressing! She is staying with my cousin who lives in Balwyn Nth (45 min from the other side of Melbourne) and she had to catch trams and trains by herself. Any way, this is her last week and I can't wait to see her again. I'm sure it's changed her. This was taken last week in Melbourne

That bee button is adorable, Georgie!

Congratulations on finishing your SB retreat fob! It's beautiful!

I totally understand being stressed about your DD being in Melbourne. I used to have to catch a bus and a train to get to school every day, and that was only about 5 miles from home.

Your daughter is such a beautiful young lady. I still can remember when my daughter was away from home for the first time. I was a lot more worrried than she could ever have been.
Your SB pieces look gorgeous, Georgie.

I love your SB pieces and your Halloween piece -- wow! Your daughter is so pretty -- I can imagine how you must have been feeling about her being away for 3 weeks. I hope she enjoyed the experience! It's interesting that your schools require that. Thanks for visiting my blog -- I had to laugh when you said that we had a lot of snow. I think it may look like more than it was. :D But it was nice! And the best part is it melted on the driveway so we didn't have to shovel. lol!
