I have DGD5 here, she had a sleepover here last night and was up just after 5am, we'd made choc chip muffins by just after 7.

Her sister, 18mths is arriving about 10 until 3 or 4, so I won't get much done today, I swept the downstairs last night after DGD had gone to bed and have done 3 loads in the WM, they will be drying over the maiden today as it is raining here.

DGD & I have been out for a long walk in the rain doing Beat The Street, it certainly made her enthusiastic about walking.

My L&M is going out with some friends this afternoon, the DGD's will have gone home before he gets home so I will have a couple of hours on my own. I'm going to go through my fabric stash, I need to recover my dining room chairs. I may end up doing them mix and match as I don't think I have enough of any one fabric to cover all 6 of them.

I will also try and cut out another bag too, I can't wait for the interfacing to arrive so I can finish them.

My L&M are having a weekend away in May, I've booked tickets and a cheap B&B, we are going to a boat show, there is live music in the evening which should be fun.

Busy lady you are! But aren't grands so much fun? And sewing projects on the go leave me breathless!

May I suggest doing a "disappearing nine patch" for each chair?
Not easy when looking after Grandkids too!
