Fabric Stash

I recently came upon a blog, Sewing in No mans land. Its from a small island of Dili in Northern Australia. The woman behind the blog, Kelly, tells about them moving every two years because of working as diplomats. She had to take only 15 yards of fabric with her and her machine and when that runs out she can only use what people send to her or when she buys when she gets back to the states. Fabric is very hard to get over there. So she asks if you want to donate fabric she will make some goodies for the children over there that are in orphanges. Its a very low income area that they are living in.

Here's a pic of the fabric I will be sending over to her. I hope it fits on one box! She said it will take about 4 weeks to get to her.

I can't wait to see what she makes. If you want to donate, check out her blog. I'm sure she would appreciate anything.

Where are the palm trees?

Here's another pic of our vacation. The kids couldn't wait to see a palm tree. This is from Epcot where the water was "dancing" to music! It was really fun to watch!

We're Back!

We arrived home last night. We had a great time! The weather was hot and humid, but sitting by the pool it really didn't matter. We did go to Epcot and enjoyed some of the countries and Illuminations Fireworks show at night. Kaylee and I had a girls only day and we went to Magic Kingdom. We had so much fun! The boys played a round of golf and then went to Hooters for lunch! Did you know that Hooters has good chicken wings?? LOL

We stayed at the Sheraton Vistana Resort which I rented off the internet. It had two bedrooms with kitchen, etc. Plenty of room for all of us! I will definately rent there again.

Now it's back to reality. Work, chores, getting Jared ready to go back to college and Kaylee starting her senior year of high school as a freshman in college. Changes amongst the Grant household for sure.

Hope everyone is having a great day!

The pic is of the kids near the Lego store in Downtown Disney.

Vacation Bound!

We are vacation bound on Saturday. Can't wait! We are heading to Orlando for some rest and relaxation. Yes, maybe some Mickey fun too! I don't think our kids have been so excited about a vacation before!

I've done some sewing..a few tote bags, wallets. Trying to get some Christmas gifts started.

Hope everyone is having a great summer.
