Fabulous Friday

There's nothing like a little playdough fun on Friday. Meggy loves the stuff. I'm also partial to this jumper she's wearing. Its a gorgeous 'hand me down' from a good friend. The roman blind is completed and just waiting for gorgeous hubby to find the right size piece of wood for the batten. Stay tuned for pics - hopefully this weekend.







Have a great weekend.

Spotlight Specials and Camera Help Wanted!

I had to go to Spotlight on Monday to pick up a couple of bits and pieces for the roman blind Im making. Little did I know it was 20% off store wide. So I couldnt resist the temptation to pick this lot up for @$2.00 p/metre!


Now I just need to find some time to sew!

Btw I found my camera. Now I kinda wish I didnt. I was hoping to upgrade. I have a relatively old Canon Powershot A40. Im really struggling to get crisp images from it. (Perhaps its your photographic skill or lack of it....I hear you say). Perhaps your right. I'd really love to hear what type of digital cameras others have and how they find them. Please post me with your reviews. I hope your having a good week.

A crafty weekend in sight...

Youve gotta love this Joel Dewberry fabric. A friend introduced me to it a couple of weeks ago and Ive been busy sewing gifts for Christmas (cant divulge till after Chrissy though!)

I also thought I might make the girls a pointy kitty each as stocking fillers. Thanks to Hilary from Wee Wonderfuls for the free pattern (and a great blog!). Im also planning on making some roman blinds for this window with some fabric left over from Mums reno.


Stay tuned for the after pics. Apart from that, a busy weekend in store with Kinder orientation for Meg tommorow, birthday party for Zoe tommorow and out for dinner tommorow night. Hopefully Sunday will be a tad more relaxing (& productive).

Have a great weekend!

Caterpillar

No luck with the camera folks...
This is one of my favorite video snippets of meggy-moo when she was younger. We call this clip "Caterpillar". Gotta love those curls.

Ive also been playing around with fd's flicker toys. Im still trying to work out how to do the mosaics. If anyone can offer some assistance I'd appreciate it.


On a crafty note, I have many things underway. The cathedral window
quilt is coming along. Unfortunately I ran out of my Michael Miller cream/green dotty dot fabric (shown) despite efforts from numerous people in trying to hunt it down. I only need 1 metre! A special thankyou to Jennie at Posie Patchwork up north who went out of her way to try to locate it.


Speaking of exceptional service, I also went to patchwork on central park yesterday. It was fantastic. The variety of fabric unbelievable. I picked myself up some gorgeous Joel Dewberry fabric. I now am ready to get going on numerous christmas projects, and with a horrible Melbourne weather forecast this weekend, I should be able to get right into it. If only I had a camera I'd take some pics. Maybe Santa will be kind to me this year!


Have a good weekend.
