Third week of term is over…..

Only 7 more to go!!!

It’s been a busy few weeks, not sure what I’ve been doing, but it hasn’t been blogging it would seem.

I need to check my photos to see what I have to show for my time.P1040680 There has been lots of visits from this little girl.

There was a week long celebration of Brooklynn’s 1st Birthday.

On the working front, I have the rest of this term full time and then things should go back to normal, that means back to part time hours and a later start, no more getting up 3.30am! now that is something I am really looking forward to!

On the stitching front…….not a lot to show really!  I did find a small bundle of fabric that was destined for the bin, but for some reason it didn’t make it and turned into this instead….

P1040761  It’s a tiny placemat and it fits perfectly on top of my lap top when closed! I feel as if my stash has a mind of it’s own lately, projects I begin take on their own personality. I had no idea what these fabric scraps would turn into when I began cutting them and then stitching them together, while it is very ordinary (as in not work of art) it was interesting to see where it took me.

P1040758 Cardigan for Brooklynn.  I remember beginning to knit this while Leah was in labour! Not knowing if she was going to be a she, I was taking a big risk! I still have buttons to stitch onto it, but I have them and that’s the important part, isn’t it?

My final finish is a 4 ring binder cover made using a charm square pack, for my friend Jodie.  She is my card class buddy and recently got organised and has a binder with all her punches and stamps sampled so she doesn’t double up in her frenzy of supply purchasing!  Card classes were postponed last week, which was very fortunate for me, because I hadn’t finished the cover!

Now that’s about it from me, except to say I am off the the Craft & Quilt Fair tomorrow at the Brisbane Convention Centre, meeting my dear friend Sharon, so looking forward to that!  I had a nap this afternoon in preparation!

Thanks for visiting!
