Family Tree update

Thought I'd sneak in a posting before bedtime. Becky's dance exams went well I think, this week she is at Summer School and is doing a small performance on Friday evening. She has just been showing us her dances, they look lovely.
We didn't have a very good Sunday, we woke up to find the trailer had been stolen overnight off the front garden. Ok it wasn't chained up, but it was only small and been in the same spot for 2 years. There is little chance of it being found and it wasn't covered on the house insurance (only found that bit out today!) Also the tent poles were still in it, which I didn't realise until Stuart told me. It's just a good job we aren't going camping this year! What un-nerves me the most is that the "lowlife" would have had to come right up to the kitchen window to wheel it off the garden and that we knew nothing about it!
I cheered myself up on Sunday by doing lots of sewing. This was mainly machine sewing again. I have 2 cushions that I'll have to show you later in the week as they haven't been given to their "new owners" yet. Then I made a canvas bag (fully lined) for my mom. I was really pleased with it but forgot to take a photo. I intend to make another one before my holidays so I'll show you it then.
So here's my Family tree update. I rolled down to the bottom again and made a little progress. I would love to finish this by Christmas but I think it'll probably be next year now, there is still a lot to do.
I also finished my little Christmas ornament...... finally. I think I'll give this to my mom and dad for their Christmas tree this year.

I'm working on Country Idyll again this week and would still like to finish this by September, so back to work now.........
Have a good week.
Ginnie x

Rotten sods..Honestly, there is just no respect left for anyone or anything in the Uk anymore. I dont know how they sleep at night.

The ornament is really cute and I love the family tree. It will be a real heirloom when it is finished. Well done
