My New Favourite

Sandi Henderson has released her new fabric range!
I love it!

I am so sorry Farmers Market, but you are out and this is in! Actually you will probably work together, so you can stay. I still have 2 metres of Vintage Cherries in my stash, one day I will hang it in my bedroom when the bedroom gets built...

This seems a bit more grown up but still so pretty. I love this combination (below) which Sandi says she has a dress combination cut out for herself in.

I have got a couple of favourites picked out, but a bit tricky to describe which ones for now without single images. And I have just had a teleconference with my best friend Kimmy discussing which ones we love the best, so Kelani you had better get these in stock ASAP! Please!

Happy Anniversary to Us

I love you Stephen...

8 years ago today we got married!

It was a perfect day that day, as is today, as I woke up to Happy Anniversary wishes from you, Lilly and Joey! A bunch of flowers and card that you all chose together, how sweet!

Our wedding day was so much fun, esp in that wind at the beach. I'm cooking salmon for dinner and nutella crepes for dessert, hope you all like it...

4th Birthday Boy

My little boy turned 4 on the 4th of July.

I just love him!

I made him Very Hungry Caterpillar cupcakes to take to kindy.

and a number 4 chocolate racing car cake for his Maze Mania birthday party.

This is my gorgeous boy... post party, filthy dirty, sweaty and fired up ready for more cake. He is wearing a Joey appliqued singlet, he looked cute, he is cute, I love him, said that!

Quilt for Violet

My cousin had a baby girl recently named Violet.This is a play quilt I made her, very quickly and very novicely!

I used Farmers Market, scraps from Nanny's stash including a little appliqued house she had made amongst it and some old embroidered doilies. I had to do a brick pattern since cutting the squares perfectly with the rotary cutter and being very careful didn't help when some of the fabrics were so loosely woven and put them all out of line!

The binding was again hand sewn down by Mum to get it done in time, thanks Mum! Oh and she also did the embroidered V for me and the roses since she is way better at embroidery than me.
