When your little bloke asks for an ipod ....

Probably not what he expected ..... but as close as he's going to get for a while.

Holiday activity bags all finished waiting for the journey.
Bring on the sunshine and the warmth !!!!
Now what's next on the pre-holiday list .....

See you all soon - hopefully relaxed, warm and smiling!

my creative space.....

We're soon to be heading north in search of some sun (YAY!!! - those also in Melb will understand my excitement), so I'm filling bags with goodies for each of the kiddies to occupy them on the journey.

First, I need the bags.
I pulled out one of Nikki's patterns that I bought a couple of years ago and never got around to using it. Love it!! So easy, such great tips and a really good result - Thanks Nikki!

One down, 2 to go.

Check out lots of other creative spaces at Kirsty's.

I have a list (I'm big on lists) and these skirts have been on my list for far too long.

So today, between the coughing,sniffling, sneezing and spluttering (it's mucus central here! .... hmm maybe too much information ????) I finished them off and delivered them. I hope they fit!
They're offically ticked off the list. If I wasn't feeling so crappy I would be feeling pretty good about that.
Hope you're all well and if not, may you be within arm's reach of a big box of soft tissues.

Quilt number 1 DONE!

I've stitched the last stitch and handed it over to my little man. He loves it - phew! I'm a little sad to see it go.
It's been fun.
Quilt 1 and I have been a couch couple since February. We've laughed, cried and stayed up late. We've grown close.
We've bonded. I think I miss you, Quilt 1.

Amitie had a sale on Friday and I met Quilt 2.
I was searching for something green and came home with this.

I hope we'll be friends.

Will keep you posted.

When you want summer ....

All you have to do is pop on the sunnies,
get mum to whip up a new summer frock,
head outside,
hope for a little sunshine to peep through the grey winter clouds
and BINGO it's summer! (and the 4 yr old is happy)
