Monday Magic

How cute are these backgrounds!! Am loving them definately makes life simple, hope you enjoy them too.

I haven't been very productive lately, still researching houses... Can't believe how small some bedrooms are. Will just have too keep looking until I find the right one.

I was able to check out some great shops today, Borders, Kikki K and another stationary shop sooo cute. Will definately have to go back and spend some more time there. Wanted to pick up my second block for my songbirds quilt but they were not available so hopefully later in the week. With the relocation (even if not for a while) and all that goes with it I would like to get on top of my quilting.

Were On The Move!!

Well its looking pretty official at this end... We are on the move!!

We are relocating to Orange NSW so there are some big changes in store for our family. The kids will see the school year out as hubby is able to go before us, staying with relatives!! Lots to do here to prepare the house for sale and the all important question - To Build? To Buy. Definately don't want to rent, far too expensive in this town.

In other news I have been busy in the last 24hrs sewing 60 camoflauge print bandannas for kids church... Started a new project about 2 weeks ago (as if I need another), colours are slightly different to the packet. Not quite so pink!

I have been inpsired over and over by my favourite blogs and finding more by the day, think I will have to set myself a challenge to complete some things and not let the move consume me!!!

Stitching and the Olympics sounds good but even better is stitching and Gilmore Girls season 6 & 7. Had some hand sewing to do today and planned to start watching and remembered the DVD player decided to quit on us this week - will definately have to sort this one out and soon.

I am heading off to Melbourne in 1mth & 4 days with three of my fav people, can't wait. No reason for the visit just felt like it... Look Out Melbourne here we come!!!

Wow, the holidays are disappearing so quickly. The kids were able to play in the snow during our recent visit to Orange, it was great to see the younger two experiencing something new - even if they were in their PJ's still!!

Not much happening on the creative front, but I am liking the idea of 'blog ready' so have taken photos of my I Remember quilt. It still needs a little more applique on the around the outside and of course backing.

I think I have gathered just about all the fabrics for my black/red/white quilt and hope to make a start on it soon. Have also purchased this cute apron pattern, couldn't resist it, now to find the time.

We are having a quiet day at home today, catching up on washing, playing monopoly (electronic) and hopefully doing some creating. Hope you all have a lovely weekend...

Another Day, Another Year Older

Thanks to for designing beautiful banners and to Katrina at (still need to learn to link!) for finding them for us. I have definately saved a couple to play with on my blog.

Well Autumn is definately settling in, I love this time of the year as it is not too cold or hot!! Being a red hear with freckles the sun just doesnt love me!!!

My lovely family came to have lunch with me on the weekend for my B'day and I received some lovely pressies. I finally started my collection of Gilmore Girls, 3 down 4 to go!!

I am madly finishing off some sewing so I can go onto other projects, have clothes I want to sew and a new quilt pattern. I am going to make this quilt up in black, red and white and am slowly gathering just the right fabrics for it...

Lots to report!! Never enough time... Hubby should be home in the next 36hours. My son has just shown me (sorry haven't learnt to link yet) - it is an energy saver search engine.

I am finally admitting to a blog addiction, still adding new blogs to bloglines everyday. Must learn to stay away some days as I am not getting near enough done. There are definately some creative people out there though.

Yay!! I have completed a LO, I like to scrap but prefer Off The Page items. This one is of my youngest daughter with straight hair for a night out celebrating my sweet sisters 30th (makes me feel old!!!). This may seem a normal photo to you - but you haven't seen her crazy curly/wavy hair that is rarely tidy.

Hope the weather is treating you all better then yesterday, hubby says it will be 1 degree where he is tonight!!!

Promises! Promises!

Really need to get my act together with my blogging! Hope everyone had a great Easter - I am so over chocolate... I have been busy stitching away, have holes in my finges to prove it!! Hope to finish the I Remember quilts soon. So many other things I would love to be making but don't want to start another quilt until these are complete.

Hubby has been working in the central west on and off at the moment so this will probably continue for a while. I take my hat off to all you single parents out there you are AMAZING!!

Here is what I have been up to and what I would like to be getting up to...

New Year, New Post!!!

I am so slack at posting, it is my desire to make more of an effort. Even if it is only to get my thoughts down and I am the only one who reads it...

We have survived the festive season. A little different this year, off we all went to Coolangatta to enjoy the sun, sand , surf and theme parks. Too bad it was cyclonic weather, the beach was closed for days and the fireworks were cancelled. We made the most of it anyway...

The beginning of this year has already bought with it new beginnings, life will be taking on a new direction. I am looking forward to being more creative this year and of course finishing off lots of projects. Just need to finish unpacking nd tiday up so that I can be creative.

In the meantime I will enjoy spending some valuable time with my children before they return to school in 3 weeks and of course spending time with family and friends.

Happy New Year to you all, may it bring you your hearts desires...
