She is an avid little cook, loves to help her mum,
It's fully reversible and has a pocket on both sides! I had heaps of fun making it.
It will be school holidays here next week, DD Laura is in her final year, so exams are just around the corner.
So a bit of a stressful time coming up. I have taken a few days off work so I might get a little bit something new done, I'm really feeling deprived on the creative side of life.
Till next time, Enjoy whatever you are doing

I had meant to put these gorgeous photos up quite a few weeks ago, but time ran away, I've put them up anyway beacause the colours are so spectcular, unbelievable almost that nature can create such intense colour. All these pictures are from around here, where I live in the Dandenongs. I tell you, one of these days I'm going to have an accident, because I'm too busy looking at what's around rather than concentrating on the road!!!
And this is what I had looking out of the lounge room window.
I have had a little fun too, by way of a little getaway with my girlfriend back in April. We had a little road trip to Adelaide to a quilters retreat, well not really that little, Melbourne to Adelaide is about 750 km's, 9 hours, with a few stops and lots of talking. We stayed in Glenelg at the Grand Stamford, where we met up with 150 other like minded ladies! We had a ball.
This was the view we had to wake up to each morning..............bit hard to take don't you think!!??
We were totally spoiled for 3 whole days. It was so much fun meeting up with friends from all over Australia, that we only ever "see" online.
My stitching/sewing has been a bit of a non event, I now officially work 4 1/2 days so my sewing suffers terribly. But, I have been planning a mystery quilt that I will be workshopping sometime in July, August or September at Foothills Fabric & Threads. It should be fun.
I'm still working on Friendships Garden and Butterfly Garden, though not a lot of progress there.
The other thing that I want to show you, is how beautiful 'just down the road' looks. If you remember the bush fires came very close here and as the weeks have passed we've watched nature start to repair itself. The hills that looked like this in February/March
now looks like this.
Wonderful isn't it.
Well that's about it for today, I hope to be a bit more 'bloggy' in the next few months.
I'm going to experiment with dinner in the kitchen now, if it turns out, I might do a blog entry!
Enjoy whatever you doing

When I started this blog I had every intention of doing a post at least once a week, maybe every fortnight, but this is ridiculous.
I have been doing a few sewing odds and ends, I have something planned but its a secret at the moment, apart from that nothing really exciting. Today for example, I have spent my Sunday cleaning the oven, the stove, the range hood, kitchen cupboards and I mean clean! I pulled the range hood to pieces, that sort of clean, thank goodness that sort of thing only happens once a year. I have to confess though, I have DD's 18th coming up and I thought was a good time to do it. OK onto something interesting...........
Have I told you that occasionally I participate in a postcard swap? It's soooo much fun. It happens every two months and the topics vary. I am in a group with the ladies that I used to do calligraphy with, there are also some other, the basket weavers, some patchworkers, a few other crafty ladies, even a couple of talented young ones.
Below are the postcards I have received. They are all from different people, each one unique.
I keep forgetting to take photos of the ones I have done, except for the patchwork theme. This quilt is 4inches x 3 inches!!! on a 6" x 4" postcard
I'm also working on Butterfly Garden, by Leanne's House, but I'll leave for another time.
That's enough from me for now, have a beautiful week, whatever you'll be doing, enjoy.
