Well I haven't had time for much crafting lately.  Slowly stitching away on my Designer Swap item as part of the Craft Forum.  Last week I went down to my parents place to stay, as my Aunty passed away.  It was great to catch up with my sister's from Australia and also see all my cousins together for the first time in 13 years.  The photo below shows all of us except for my brother Michael and cousin Steven as they had to leave to go to work before we thought of the idea to take this photo.

Also I got to see my nephew Jesse for the first time.  It's hard to believe we nearly lost him when he was a couple of weeks old.

And here is my daughter Kristen holding him.

And only two days before my Aunty's funeral my brother and his partner had a baby girl named Nevaeh-Grace. 

My dad and brother don't dress up much so I had to take some photos of them too.

Finally, when we got home from my parents look what was in the mail for me.  I finally received my order from Nordic Needle.  It had been on backorder for a while as they were waiting on one item.  I can now fill in those gaps on my Mirabilia x-stitch.

Well here is a pic of my Dad (the one with glasses) and his brother and sisters.  This was taken last month at my Aunty Robyn (the one standing) and Uncle Graeme's 50th wedding anniversary. There is a 14 yr age difference between Dad and Aunty Robyn so Dad is the baby of the family.  It was fab to get this photo as it will be the last get together the family will be able to have.
