'She' is Shirley B!!! She has finally arrived in our fair city to make it her home.
Welcome Shirley. Poor Shirley has been trying to move now since the 7th January before all the flooding rains. The truck couldn't negotiate her driveway and then the removal company had their own issues with flooding, cleaning up and catching up with all their removals. It has been a bit of a marathon, but she got here at last on Sunday. Now begins the arduous task of unpacking!
Our granddaughter Lilian is named after my Mum who passed away in 1997. Mum was a wonderful pianist who taught herself, didn't read music but played only by ear. She played in bands, at functions, as accompaniment etc. etc. It was one of her greatest joys. So it brought tears to my eyes when Lilian the 2nd (who is just 2years old) discovered the piano. She would hit at a few keys and then look up and laugh and smile at us. Very reminiscent of how her great grandma used to play. Lilian is shown here playing Mum's piano which my Dad gave her for her 21st birthday.
I miss my Mum every day and I know she would have loved this little 'performance'.
Alas, due to a week of headaches and migraines I have not done much in the sewing room. Still working on Dec/Jan journal quilt and I want to get it done by Art Quilt group meeting on Feb 9. YIKES!!
