The joys of Technology and Creativity!!

Well I have tried for over three days to get this blog to work - and finally it has - technology who knows - I certainly don't and when the experts have problems, what chance do us poor mortals have? Pretty much nothing other than perseverance!!!!
Now I feel better.
Well what do you think of what Robbie and I have been doing? We are having a ball with Margaret's Magnificent Medley of glorious large three dimensional flowers - they truly are striking. We have made a hat, dress pin and matching hand bag and are at present working on a spectacular pillow. You are just going to love this new CD.
I had an unexpected visit for my beautiful Harvey on Thursday, Friday and Saturday last week, along with Kirstin and Cleo. Harvey is such a joy and entertained us all while we were working. He took much delight in 'working' with Papa (Simon's dad) and proudly told his mum - working working - even remembered the next day. He went out with Noo Noo and happily announced walking - walking - well one of us was walking and the other being carried - but I guess we were both moving! To say we were all a little exhausted at the end of the day was an understatement and Harvey eventually crashed around 9:00 pm - but even though he was sick he never cried all day and was just so happy and full of energy - oh the joy of being a grandmother!
Robbie and I have also made the cutest little headbands with Harvey's Garden designs along with matching wands - perfect for kid's parties you will love the idea.
I went to see the movie Precious on Saturday night - to say it is confronting is an understatement, along with such words as thought provoking and totally staggering - one knows these things happen but to see them on a big screen and have to deal with your resulting emotions literally took my breath away - it is a movie only for the brave but one everyone should see.
Well I am not pushing my luck with this posting and hopefully will have more pictures for later in the week.
