Quilt: Baby Blanket

One of the people at my work is having a baby, well, not him, but his wife is. I may have been a bit tipsy when I suddenly declared "I'm going to make a quilt!'

With only a couple of days left of annual leave, I got to work! I pulled out all the fabric and Steve was not liking my choices. He said 'well, it's not going to win any shows'. He was right. The way I had laid out the fabric was a bit much. So, with a bit of white fabric, I ended up creating the top in one night.

Hey there, Sally!

I ended up quilting concentric triangles on the 60/30 degree line. I found the cutest dog flannelette fabric at Spotlight, that seems like it was made especially to go with the range I used. Which reminds me, after three quilts, I am now officially out of that fabric! I've got a real thing for stripes on the binding at the moment, so some grey striped just finished it off nicely.

Now let's just hope we've guessed right and it's a boy!

Project Life: Week 3

Huh. Who'd have thought I'd have lasted this long? Not me, to be honest. I am really enjoying the simplicity of it. I don't have to worry about finding the perfect card or putting on the perfect embellishment. I'm also writing more as I can fit more on each card. I'm also loving how quick and easy I can record our memories.

Project Life: Week 2

I haven't bought a lot of the kits. I've mainly stayed within the same colour ranges. So far I have Coral, Jade, Just Add Color, and Kraft. And for some reason I have Midnight, School, and Strawberry, but I don't remember buying them. Anyway, I'm mainly sticking to the first couple I mentioned.

Scrapbooking: Cricket

I created this layout at the end of last year for Scrap the Girls. It's about time I shared it!! The layout is about Cricket, the miniature horse that we once had at a party, who now lives with us. :)

Day to day: Photo a day

Another lot of photo a day photos. I'm finding that having the list as the background on my photo is a constant reminder to take a photo. It's a quick and handy reference too. I don't remember who posted the idea on Facebook, but thank you. :)

Project Life: Week 1

I have had the PL app since it first came out but not having the best eyesight, I always thought it was too much trouble than it was worth. When my phone contract was up, I decided to get myself the iPhome 6 Plus. No more blurry screens. :)

I was sitting on the couch watching TV when I thought I'd have another look at the app. It took a little bit to work out what I was doing and how to do it, but I got there in the end. So much so, that I've decided to try and keep up this year and complete a project life 'album'.


And if I finish it, I think it will do quite nicely printed out as a coffee table book.
