Hello Ladies,

Well - it’s that lovely time of year (very late in coming!) where the cold weather keeps us indoors and we have more time to sew! Well at least that’s what I tell myself every winter.

I am pleased to report, that although time is flying by, and I can’t believe we are almost halfway through the year, I am still keeping up with trying to get through my UFO’s. Last week, I was looking for some red fabric in my attic and found a box with some gorgeous projects that I am really keen to finish off. It’s so nice to find little treasures that have been forgotten.

In 2007 - pre-triplets - hubby and I had been on the verge of taking a big three month holiday consisting of six weeks in Japan, three weeks in China and three weeks in Thailand. Two weeks before our departure I discovered I was pregnant with triplets and to state the obvious, the trip was postponed. Well ten year later, substantially shorter than our original trip, and with three kids and a 75 year old mother in tow, we headed off on the first leg, which would be 3.5 weeks in Japan. To say it was amazing would be to understate it, so I have included a snippet of some photos for you to see for yourself. We visited 12 cities in 25 days, and it was a most incredible cultural experience for all of us. Travelling to a country like Japan is the best education we could ever give our children!

Until next time - big love to you all xoxoxo
