A quick Update

She's making a list,
And checking it twice...
 (can you tell that I'm already thinking about Christmas?!?!)

I've been working on my F.R.I.E.N.D.S swap parcel (no pictures, sorry!!), it's almost ready to send - i think i will put it in the mail next Monday. 

another wonderful weekend here, TWO days off in a row (i work alternate weekends) and i got so much done.  the weather was beautiful so i got the lawns mowed (and just in time because it is raining again today), did some washing, got a bit of cleaning done and spent the rest of the weekend sewing and catching up with friends

i just need to find a couple more things (for E and N).  i am loving this swap, it is so much fun

Spring has sprung

and here is the proof, this is a flowering plum that is outside one of my bedroom windows

A few random thoughts

my little girl is recovering well from her surgery, she is actually ahead of expectations - but i think she was sick of the camera by the time i took this photo!

i felt the need for a bit of retail therapy the other day.  aren't these shoes just toooo cute?? it is spring here and i think these are the perfect shoes to express my joy that winter is finally over (and they were less than AU$50, bargain!), i think i may need to go back and get a black pair too!

this little stack of fabrics and pattern came home with me from Ballarat Patchwork.  i am looking forward to making my "mini mice" quilt; designed by Trish Harper (no blog or website) it is just too cute for words!

postcard swap

don't think i have posted photos of the 2 postcards that i have received in my latest stashbuster swap, so here they are...

I missed my 1st anniversary

Ooops, i took a photo a couple of days ago and thought to myself "i think i've posted this before" and yep, i was right - not long after i started my blog i posted a photo of some beautiful spring blossoms.  i looked back thru my blog and my first post was on 7th August, 2009,

i'm a bit late but HAPPY 1st ANNIVERSARY to me! and a big thank you to all of my friends out there in blog land
