Catching Up..........

I've been quite busy quilting and all the little things that go on around here.
This one I quilted was for Rebecca @ Chasing Cottons. Bec put it in the Bloggers Quilt Festival for all to see. I was really happy how it turned out and Bec loved it!!

Here it is hanging on my clothes line.........

I love this paisley pattern.......


I finished another couple of quilts this week but I forgot to take photos. One was an all over and the other was a custom for one of our neighbours.

We had the boys sport carnival this week. I had to take my one day a week at the shop off to go with them. Don't get me wrong, I love to go to the carnival but I also love going to the shop to have my one girly day a week. I really miss it when I don't go. Anyway, it was a beautiful Autumn day and the kids had a ball.

Such a cute little school. All the kids are well behaved. These are just the infants having a great day.

Last weekend we headed to Sydney for a couple of events. Firstly, I was going to High Tea for my Mum & her twin Sister's birthday with my Sister, Cousins & Aunty. Unfortunately my Aunty became ill and couldn't make it and one of my cousins pulled out too. Not to worry, the four of us had a fab time. We went to Newport to a lovely little restaurant and talked and laughed for hours. The restaurant manager had to ask us to wind things up because he needed the table and it looked like we were set in for the evening. The food was really yum and the tea was very aromatic. I don't drink tea so a glass of bubbly went down well. Thanks to my family for a wonderful day.

Yummy little treats........

The tea was served in vintage china..........

Scones always go down a treat............

Secondly, Sunday saw us celebrating 3 of the kids birthdays at my Uncle Dave's boatshed at The Dingle (long story). It's always fun when all the boys(9) & 1 girl  are together. Lots of catching up and laughter and the boys on their scooters. It was a fun day....

The last couple of weeks I have been trying to be super organised. It's going great. I have been meal planning and just that alone seams to help with the rest of the day. I have found that I have an extra hour after dinner and washing up so I have been able to hit the sewing room and get some UFO's/WIP's out of the cupboard. It's amazing what you can get done in an hour. Next I need to get some of the quilt tops quilted.......

Hope you are getting some things done too..

Happy Quilting
