Cast and Crew
The Golfer:: My loving husband of some 20 years (yes, I was a child bride!), who likes nothing better than flogging a little white ball around the green fairways (and hopefully not getting into the rough) of his local golf course.
Ma & Pa Kettles:: My parents who live in the country, fondly known as The Kettles. Sadly my gorgeous Dad died in 2015, so it’s just Mum now.
MyDearFIL & MIL:: The Golfer’s Dad & Mum who have now both passed away.
LittleBigBrother:: My brother who is younger than me, but at 6 foot, definitely bigger than me!!
DocSisterInLaw:: LittleBigBrother’s wife (who has a Doctorate!)
Poppet:: My beautiful niece, and daughter of LittleBigBrother and DocSisterInLaw
(blis) n. 1. perfect happiness; serene joy
Obviously the collective noun for a group of stitchers!!

Long wanted to make one so here goes! #freewheelingsinglegirlsal19Enjoying a hot choc and muffin @canteena18 on way to Bendigo. We’ve finally sold Mum’s unit and today I have the sad task of supervising the removal of the last of her furniture before settlement on the unit - she can’t have it all in her one room in residential care! Lots of memories leaving with some of the furniture. It’s too early for @patchnquilt to be open but I might have to console myself on the way home with a stop to see gorgeous Mary #beingbrave #endofaneraBig “boo” and black mark to Coles and Woolworths who have both permanently deleted GF custard powder from their shelves. A big tick and thanks to IGA for stocking it! Can make my GF sponge for Mum now #gfsponge #ilikeiga #gfcustardpowderIt’s going to be a gorgeous Melbourne Spring day kids! #springinmelbourne #blossom
