Cute Find

I am constantly walking around the house only to find the results of Elsies play. It makes it very hard to clean up whenthey are so cute! This morning I found Elsie's beanie bears all lined up having a sleep. The fireman seems to be left out in the cold, but lets be fair, he does have a big jacket on!

Incidentally they are all cuddling together under one of my designs.... now if only the pattern would write itself....

Last night I finished block 4 of my Applique Quilt I am designing. I have decided that needle turn applique if definitely one of my main 'quilting' loves, so am really enjoying sitting and doing this at night. I am loving the way it is turning out and how the colours are coming together.

A Mummy Trifecta!

What a great couple of days! Daughter #1 was presented with her scholarship for uni on Wednesday night (I couldn't be prouder!), then she got her 'P's' yesterday (lots of nail biting moments in store for me when she's running a few minutes late...), and daughter #2 comes home today after a month away on her school's Outdoor Education program, so very, very excited! (And daughter #3, well, she is of course fulfilling her role of being incredibly cute and crafting up a storm... I don't think there is an un-cut peice of paper left in the house!).

I also have been extremely spoilt, as the lovely Lorraine whom I work with, brought me back this beautiful bag, as she knows I love love love Cath Kidston! Aren't I lucky!

So, with all this positive energy floating around me I am feeling very motivated and sewing up a storm! I am currently working on a Bliss flannel, a new pattern of mine using the lovely new MoMo range 'Wing It', my applique BOM, binding a lovely American Jane quilt, and..... mmm.... I think that might be it for now!
