Goings on in my world . . .

The next Crazy Mom box has arrived . . .

One more cut out to go . . . 

 Rag Rug slowed to a halt . . . trying to flatten it out a bit - any ideas?

And now starting a baby quilt for up coming
staff babies that are growing day by day

Thought I'd try another pattern from Sunday Quilts

Wish I'd made the squares a bit bigger, as it was quite fiddly
but good overall effect!

A bit of quilt adourning my couch!

Love the colours and the scraps!

More scraps in the making . . .

And a spot of "mumsy" mending!

I thought holes in the jeans were all the fashion,

but Miss Flowergarden insisted that they get covered up as she was sick of people asking her if she had ripped them on purose to be fashionable!

Pretty excited that she was knitting too on the weekend!
(and Master 12)

And finally, a new Lisa Chandler Skirt for me me me

Wore it to school today and thought I looked FABULOUS!
Am I allowed to say that?  Don't tell will you!!

Great fabrics for $15 a meter HERE!

Pattern by May Cheang
Very easy and fun to make.

An invitation to be CREATIVE

A long weekend, brought travel and family time.
I was excited when my sister (sister no. 2) invited me to her
Pottery Studio, currently in my mum's garage,
to make some "buttons"

Once I got started, I didn't want to stop.
It was like quilting - calming and theraputic

These are my efforts
I loved this fork that Jayne used in a most professional manner, to make holes in things. 

I also loved these garden signs that she had been making for her stall at the local Farmers Market.

The elephant took my fancy too!
I think if I lived closer, I would go to her classes - it was fun to have a turn.
Thanks for the invitation
