Look who was 18 not long ago!!!

She is just the best girl in the world, love her with all my heart

"she is far more precious then jewels and her value is far above rubies and pearls...."


Its About Time

Well it has been sometime since I posted... No lack of inspiration from other bloggers though - think I spend way too much time visiting. I will try to post more frequently even if I am the only one that sees it!

I have been knitting again, my jumper has taken at least 3 years to knit and still 1 1/4 sleeves to go. At least it is a Jo Sharp design so I dont think it will date. Still completing my BOM's, have done quite a bit of work on A Quilters Journey but really must work on the other two quilts if my girls are going to get them for christmas.

I have had this quilt top finished for some time, it features some of my all time fav fabric. Very interesting considering my house is so not shabby chic in style!!! I love red so like to have little splashes of it in things, even shabby chic. Need to find some fabric for the back, maybe a stripe or spot.
Here is a close up of the stitchery...

Creative Time

What are you into at the moment???? I love being creative but don't always find the time..... I really have had to restrain myself from starting anything else new until i complete some of my unfinished items!!! At the moment I am working on 4 Quilts - 2 x Leanne's House BOM one of which is nearly finished and 2 x Rosalie Quinlan Designs (see above - these two are for Miss I & Miss S - no arguements then about who has what). Thought you might like to see what I am up too...

When I am not working my 'real' job i also have the privilege of helping out at the Giggly Grape Gallery - where I am surrounded by beautiful decorative paintings and wonderful antiques. If you are ever visiting the Hunter Valley drop in and say hello.

Over the next few weeks I thought I would add some pics I love so that while I am learning my way around here there will be something for you to look at. I have always loved the first photo, somedays it seems like a lifetime ago and other days it feels like only yesterday.... The second photo is my my gorgeous niece Maddi, she is growing so fast and because she lives over the other side of the world we watch her grow up through photos and short videos. Her mother and grandmother are doing a great job in raising her, my brother would have been proud.

Numero Uno

Welcome to my first post.... This is a new and exciting venture for me and after reading and being inspired by bloggers all over this country and the world I felt it was time to have a go myself. In this busy world we can often loose sight of the important things in life and I wanted my family and friends to be able to see what we are up too on a regular basis. Mainly this will be a place for me to come and express my creative side and what is going on in the life of my family. I would love for you to come on the journey with me and look forward to getting to know you soon. God Bless
