Friday saw Nelson get his manual license. He was one very excited boy!
Now we have to do the "Five Car Shuffle" each day, making sure that
the first person out in the morning is at the back. Until now we had one car in the garage and three across the front. Having that fifth car makes it trickier.
I started my FNWF while I was sitting at VicRoads while
Nelson had a driving lesson prior to his test.
I stitched on the labels on three new Santa Sacks.
I also make a scissor fob.
My sewing set is now complete.
Just need to buy a little pair of scissors and it's already to be
wrapped up to give as a Christmas present.
Today (Sunday) Nelson and I took Molly and Rex to Dog Obedience Club for the Christmas Party. There were lots of games and ribbons. Molly won a ribbon for the dog who could bark on command. She did it at the side but as soon as I went into the centre, she wouldn't! As soon as we left the centre, she barked again.
She must have had stage fright! Rex won "Most Active Dog"!
They both got a Christmas bag filled with rope toys and doggie treats.
Friday night Noel and I went down to my Mum and Dad's to have fish and chips for tea. The shop near them has the best fish and chips. We've been going there for nearly 40 years and it's still the same man running it with his family!
My plan was to work on my Christmas stitchery while there but I
left my glasses at home! Hence, no stitching was done!
So I joined the ladies in the Northern Hemisphere on Saturday and stitched
along with them while binge watching Alias Grace on Netflix.
Today, Noel, Nelson and I went to the Whittlesea Agricultural Show. I had entered my Double Wedding ring quilt and got such a surprise to see I had won first prize. Over all the years I have entered quilts, this is the first time I have ever got a first. I've had many 2nd and 3rd prizes. So, needless to say, I was very excited!
