My birthday

Had a fantastic birthday - came downstairs this morning to balloons and banners around the living room and somes roses and chocolates on the fireplace.  Stuart had the day off so he took us out for a birthday breakfast and a shopping trip

S is for...

Thought it was fitting to have a sunflower on her quilt seen as this is one of favourite pictures of her




Faith decided to help her Dad when he was doing something to one of the cupboard doors:

He thought it was really cute until shwe started getting in the way!

O is for octopus

Since I posted the pic of the quilt, I stopped working on it until last night.  This is the latest square:


Got to find my list of what I'm doing for the rest of the alphabet now...

Fabric shopping with a 1 year old

Had a great day today - half our new kitchen is in (thanks Dad) and I got some new fabric, now I just have to decide what to make first.

I heard about a new fabric shop in town so we went to have a look this morning.  Faith was running all over the place picking bits of fabric out of a box and throwing it on the floor, picking up cushions and freaking out the shop assistant (why does she insist on staring at people so much?!)

Relaxing night tonight then swimming tomorrow

A walk in the park...

I'm almost on top of all the housework so this morning Faith and I took a quick drive down to the park to feed the ducks.  Unfortunately when we got there I realised I'd forgotten the bread, so she had to settle for scaring them away instead!



My sewing machine is in for a service so I'm using the time to finish a few projects, the main one being a crawl mat I started for Faith when she was 4 months old (never mind that she's walking now!).  I picked it up again last week and this is where I am now.  I'm aiming to do at least one sqaure a night.

My first step into the blogging realm...

... and I am terrified. I've been wanting to start a blog for a while now so I can keep track of my crafty pursuits and record all the tiny little day to day things that don't usually make it into our photo albums. So you can expect updates on all my latest projects, snippets of family live, random thoughts and inspiration.
