Instead of scrapping I have been enjoying the holidays with the kids. I miss them now they are back at school. Oh. And just a few little housekeeping things. Do you like the new look? It is still a work in progress but I will get there eventually.

Hmmm. Another wasted school holidays.

Luke has chicken pox.

Now, I have no idea who reads my blog, but if you have been checking in for a while, you may remember that some time ago, like in April 2008, I picked up some material to make Amy a quilt. It took me about 2 months to make the top and sew it to the back material.


It has sat in my sewing bag for the past 13 months. Untouched.

Until last night. I was inspired by my next door neighbour and her Christmas panel she has almost finished.

So I sewed on the binding and then re-sewed it to 1/2" and not 1/4". Then I started handstitching the binding and I finished it this morning while Kate and I snuggled under it.

Now I have a sore thumb and I don't want to see binding for a very long time.


And here is Luke playing 'Checkers' on it, which was more like Snakes and Ladders.


I am one happy chicken now it is completed and I can finally move on to the next thing. I have a welome stitchery that I am close to finishing so I might get stuck into that next.

I don't get very many good photos of Amy, because, well, she moves... alot. And she is fast and wont sit still and most of the time she ignores me too. Especially when I am saying 'where's mummy?' so she will look at the camera. Anyway. I DID manage a decent photo of her today, decent by my standards anyway! LOL! Would you believe she is already 20 months old? Me either. She is growing into a vivacious toddler. But she is still such a baby in so many ways. Which is good because I am having a hard time letting go of the baby stage.


And the other day, it was dewey and I saw a cute little spiderweb that I thought I could muck around with some aperature settings on my camera. This one was my favourite photo that I took.


Okies, well, I am off to push some paper around while Amy is asleep.
