oh dear I dont think am ready

Formal for Ipswich Grammar.

My daughter is in year 12 this year and of course it all dress, hair, makeup,.............. grown up...oh no

she does look so beautiful, but I am bias.
Before her date arrived to pick her up it was a little fresh she had her grungy flannel shirt and her Doc Marten boots on of course the pooch was close by.
The Brookfield show is on next weekend so I have decided to put two quilts in. So if your in Brisbane and have some time next weekend, you should pack up your family and go. We love it and go everyday of the weekend, the rodeo is on friday night and they always have the usual suspects, like show bags sideshow alley and the needlework, cakes, woodturning and great shows at night with the fireworks. The motor bike jumping is always spectacular

so click on the link and go to needlework if you want to enter something today or on Thursday night they have the wine n cheese night to announce the winner's for all the art and needlework. the Art is always wonderful too. Can you tell I am a loud and proud Brookfieldian? I am sadly not going to the show this year-- but off to Adelaide for a wedding which will also be great.

anyway enough ramblings.

Happy stitching

Well i am off to put on some rod pockets and head down to enter my quilts

You must have felt so proud to see your little girl all grown up. I like the photo of her in the flannie! The Show sounds like so much fun!

I went through the "formal" last year, it was not without dramas. Your girl looks so grown up and gorgeous in her dress. love the pic with the flannel shirt!
Unfortunately I don't think I'll get down to Brisbane this weekend so won't be able to see the show.It does sound like fun though!
