A little Of This....

Earlier in January I needed to finish off a birthday present...
Two huge Swoon cushions... with pebble quilting...
 I've signed up for this... 100 blocks!!!!! 
they are only 6.5 x 6.5 and 2 a week...
 fingers crossed I keep up heehee
these are some of the fabrics I have chosen 
and 
I will be mixing them up with my stash... of course!
 at the moment I am working on this pattern for my my grandie Judd
he is about to go into a bigger bed
I was hiding inside today... the temp got to 44!!!
I checked the veggie patch out this evening and it is struggling big time,
tomorrow is meant to be 43 so it will be hotter probably!!!!!!

Christmas 2015 and a bit of water...

Seeing we had two newbies to the family,
 they needed Christmas stockings to be made for them...
 This Yaya had to get her "finger out" and into action!
 All lined up and ready for Santa... 
Hubby thinks we could add at least ten more stocking to the fire place!!!
 Much thanks to Fiona for sharing her stocking pattern with me
mmwah
 We have Santa come and visit in the morning to hand out the stockings to the little fellas...
Uncle Liam helping our little man 
(he loved Santa, think he recognised the voice)
 Our Big Boy so impressed that Santa came to Yaya's house "he very busy"...
hi 5's for Santa (had no idea who it was)
Juddy Butt wouldn't have a barr of Santa... 
you can keep that Big Red Fella right away from me heehee
Santa even dropped the beard... that made it worse "you ate my Chuck"
 We think this ''first time Christmas Mum" went a little crazy
hahahahaha
A new bike...
A couple of weeks ago we had a storm fall just over the area we live in... the local
town got 3 mls of rain all day we had 50+ mls and most of that fell in just under an hour...
not sure exactly how much rain as the gauges overflowed!
 this is behind my house
 nice little creek has formed here but down the back.......
a river...
Apparently this hasn't happened before...
 we need a truck and bobcat to get rid of all the rubbish and one fence on the South side needs replacing as it is buried... I did get a temporary fence up in the dark with some help...
 Hubby aka The Boarder was away...
Do you like the temperature's I am going to have for the next week?
Just like living back in the bush...

Yep I am Back...

Yes I am back... but I have been here watching you all too... 
not leaving any comment though... 
had a bit of turbulence in my life that I needed to sort and get my head around... all good now...
I have a bit to show as I haven't been slack (maybe a little)
 this quilt was finally finished and delivered for our family friends little fellas 1st birthday
 even had some tags made ''MamaYaya"
 the citrus trees smelt AWESOME 
 while in flower... nothing like an orange blossom

 the roses had been beautiful
 all three Daniel Morcombe bushes have had flowers


 the Fairies now live in my garden
 the Summer veggie garden has been very prolific 
 tomatoes and cucumbers coming out our ears
 even an abundance of zucchinis... so pickles were made
 the rock melons have now started
 I now have about 40 bottles of tomato sauce in the pantry cupboard
 we have about 5 little apples growing... there were more but the birds like them 
and they now have netting over them... fingers crossed we get at least one to taste.
have been spending time with these three munchkins
 Jensen is now 2 1/2 and quite the dancer
 Judd turned one a couple of days ago... he keeps us all on our toes
Lawson has grown so much and is now attempting to crawl
stay tuned for another photo overload tomorrow...

Friday Night With Friends...

This was my achievement with FNWF
I decided to make a cushion out of my Swoon pattern
to see how it would look...
 bit of cutting out to be done
 my end result and off to bed...
 On Saturday while The Boarder watched the AFL match I sewed...
I used some orange thread and machine stitched 1/4 on both sides of the seams..
turned out ok I think and makes my lounge chair a little brighter...
Thanks Cheryll for the night.
