Friday Night Sew In....


I made it! the first 'Sew In' for the year! I have made a commitment to blog more. I started early afternoon and did some of my sleeves for Miss10 in a light pale pink...tis yummmm


My poor neglected Down the Rabbit hole got some urgent attention. Id like to finish this by the end of the month...I can hear you laughing, but I have all the components cut and ready to sew except the last few borders.... 


I have signed up for both of Sarahs 2018 BOMs, but I will work on only one, not sure which one yet thou. I enjoy the process of her BOM and the social interaction via Instagram and facebook. My main priority this year is to finish all my WIPs and some UFOs. Only some as I'm sure I 'll pass a few onto friends.
Thank you to Wendy for being a lovely host. Why not check what all the ladies got up too by clicking HERE

Kids crafting....

Finding things to do in the hot weather has been hard for my kidlets. They go for an early morning bike ride to retrieve our naughty pup that likes to visit the neighbours...play the baby goat....then it's I'm Bored!!!!! We have encourage reading, colouring in with a few challenges on the wii. Miss 10 received a weaving loom for Christmas so yesterday afternoon I set it up for her and after a quick tutorial, she made her first square. 


We have threaded the loom to start another square, she is on her way to making a new purse.....sigh that lasted 30 mins lol

Where has the year gone....


This year has gone by soo quickly .....I have neglected my blog....not really meaning too, it's sometime quicker just to use Instagram. But I am here now, to wish all my blogger friends a wonderful New Year, may it be filled with all things creative!


Wishing for nothing but a healthy year to my gorgeous hubby and a clean bill of health.

Ive stepped into my sewing space for the first time in weeks, I need to complete something soon, for someone very special....enjoy the holidays x

P.S some pics of our fabulous Bathurst Retreat, hoping to make it twice a year...maybe :)

Fabric...fabric...fabric

This week I've been a tad naughty. I bought a few old B&C Layer Cakes and some French General Rural Jardin fat quarters on one of those bad destash pages .. I swear I have no self control. ... I also caught up with the lovely Carol from Cherry Pie Designs at the Orange Craft Alive yesterday...where more yummy fabrics were purchased...
I did NEED more pinks for my Modablockheads stitchalong but the yellows ...well they were an impulsive buy lol


I have been good trying to prep each day so I can just pick up my hand sewing at Tutoring or while at other appointments...this week Ive been concentrating on my Stonefield's quilt...and I've fallen in love all over again...

 
'
√Ąt Tuesday Sewing group I found this uncompleted Old Time Kaleidoscope block to work on......


I listened to the Gnome Angels podcast on Sew Modern something this morning and what came across clearly whilst she was being interviewed was to 'find your passion' and just go for it....I'm glad Ive found mine...
