Wow it has been a really really long time between blogs. I have been a bit busy and when I have been on the computer i have been on Facebook. I have won another pattern, my husband says i need to start buying tatslotto tickets. i must say i have been really lucky. I won a pattern from Hugs and Kisses. I hace chosen the shower cap and bag set. Cant wait to make the cap and bag for Charlotte. Think i need to head down to candleberry country and purchase some fabric.

You will see in the photographs a picture of my little girl she had just given herself a hair cut, and was very proud of her self. I asked her were all her beautiful curls had gone she replyed on the floor mum you see. Her hair has started to grow back but it will be a long time until i can put it up in a pony tail again . She has never had a fringe she really didn't do a bad job of cutting one.

Grady's first time using textas and last for a while he thought they were rather tasty.

Mrs Perkins, I made for my sister inlaws birthday. I have made another 2 since then Charlotte and Grady needed one each.

My Angel swap finished projects before i popped them into the post. I just hope I addressed the package properly.

Sorry about the photos being on their sides i couldn't work out how to turn them

I have also finished a needle case designed for the stitch in at Glenn harrow but haven't taken any photos of it. I have started work on some Christmas projects now
Bye for now

I finally finished a bag that I started weeks ago. It didn't really take me long to do at all.
I did purchase some fabric for it weeks ago, but wasn't totally happy with it so I guess that's why I was never inspired to make it.
While I was out shopping the other day we came out of the Toy shop and found a sale table out side the fabric store. I picked up a metre of fabric for only $10. So I was determined to finish the bag with the new fabric this weekend. I love the bag so much that I think i will make it again with the old fabric. Now i just need to take it out shopping!!!

Also I was very lucking again in Melly and Me's recent competition. I won first prize. I'm looking forward to sitting down and doing the stitcherys.

Thanks for dropping by

have a great day

Happy Birthday little man

I have been rather busy in the last month. I have made two birthday presents. One I can show you, the other I gave to my friend before taking a photo. This one was for my sister its a folder to keep all her things for ballet eisteddfod's in.

Grady turned one yesterday. I spent a lot of last week cooking for his party. I made green and blue buntings (I call them backstroke flags) to hang around the house. Charlotte was very disappointed when I took them down today.

I made special cups for the kids, each cup had a picture of them and their name on it. I also did this for the lollie bags. I then turned this into a treasure hunt. The kids loved looking for their own bags.

I made his cake the night before. If you look close you can see Charlotte little fingers have been into the icing.

Now I might be able to get some more stitching done.
Happy Birthday Little man

Happy Birthday

Today my dear old friend George is 11 I got her for my 21st Birthday. To celebrate Charlotte sang happy birthday to her and help her blow out the candles.

Yes she did get some cake, and so did Koby.

But she had her own celebration in my bed room, she stole the cardboard packaging foil comes in and ate it. I only no this because i found the metal strip on the floor. Lucky she didn’t eat that, but there were a few bite marks in it.

Lucky Lucky Lucky

I’m a lucky girl. On Thursday night I entered my Angel Story quilt into my local Spotlight store quilting competition. I got a phone call yesterday to say that I had won first prize. I went and collected my prize today. It was a lot bigger than I had imagined. I won a new Sewing bag, 30 fat quarters, cutting matt and cutter, thread, pin cushions, bag to store fat quarters in, teddy bear, quilting book, basting spray, needles and enough batting to make a queens size quilt.

Busy Weekend and lucky again

I spent the weekend making an adult size wonder suit for my sister’s boyfriend. I must admit I did have it on a few times while making the suit and it was lovely and warm. Just what you need on a cold winters day. I had enough material left to make Grady a blanket. Its double sided with his name on one side and a car on the other. It fits really well in his pram for when we go out for walks.

I recently received a email from Amanda Brooke letting me know that i had won, one of her patterns. I’m looking forward to getting it in the post and making a start on it. I have been really lucky with her blog this is the second time i have won a prize. The first time i won a necklace, bracelet, candles and some melts. I wear the jewellery all the time, and the candle and melts smell lovely in my crafty room. She has a store on esty you should pop over and have a look.

Happy stitching
