Dropping out for a bit....

Our computer has finally given up the ghost (hence the lack of posting) and is going in for major surgery tommorow.

Hopefully we wont be out of action for too long - how would one survive without all that lovely craftiness and friendship out there?
I'll look forward to catching up on all your blogs, when we're back in action.
Ciao for now

This is...

Last weeks theme was "this is what I (we) created"....

Zoe (above) & Meg (below)

Both my girls were eager to make their entrances into the world. Zoe was born at 27 weeks and Meg at 25 weeks gestation.

All my other creations pale in significance.

Happy Easter Everyone.

Look what arrived for me in the mail.....

I was very excited to receive my PIF gift from Cam yesterday.

One gorgeous reversible apron and matching head band.
Cam asked in her little note whether I liked pink? I think my pj's say it all!

Thanks Cam - I love it!

This is.... & PIF winners

Better late than never, heres this weeks this is...

...outside my front door. Obviously in need of a rake and some mulch.
Darling Hubby made the kids a cubby house over the summer hols (complete with leadlight windows). And finally heres the door in question.

Check out Angela's blog to see what's out the front of everyone elses front door.

In other news the winners of my Pay it forward comp are;
Kitty's Kaboodle
The third commentor was already involved in a PIF swap so declined the offer.
So that means there is... STILL 1 SPOT UP 4 GRABS. Be the fourth person to comment on the PIF post and its yours. Ive also decided to slip something in the post for Curlypops (just cause).
I'll be in contact shortly to get your postal details.

Have a great week.

NB: The lucky last winner of the PIF competition is Jeanne.

Funky feet and This is....

Why is everything so much better when you share it with a special friend?

Today was one of those occasions. Dear friend and I went and pampered ourselves at Super Nails. And this is the result! We were so impressed we had to literally stop on the street and take a pic for prosperity.

In other news, Ive had to bend the rules somewhat on this weeks " this is " theme.
This was as close as I was going to get this week to an inspiration board.

That said, Ive always wanted to create one so I cant wait to see everyone elses (check out Angela's blog for inspiration).
Anyway this is my little fabric collection Im throwing together as a couch quilt for the girls. I was going to do this style, but I saw a gorgeous ragged quilt in Amitie today and now Im considering that instead. I couldnt get a clear photo of the one at Amitie, but here's what a ragged quilt looks like.
Now keep in mind Ive never made a quilt before. Which way do you think I should go? I'd love your feedback.
