Life story - the short version


I'm a fun loving 30 something year old . Married my favourite guy. Started on my production of children & number 1 is an adorable boy. Big on family. Big on craft. Love country music. Love fuss free + practical ...aaand maybe with just a little bow for decoration!

Love the law of attraction too. And singing ...dancing ...bright colours and excessive punctuation ...and stationery.

This week in pictures. Princess quilt top done

I recently found a tutorial for Lace/Vintage Flowers and now I'm hooked. See the tutorial that got me hooked by clicking here.

I found that my huge stash never had lace in it! Ok I found some rainbow eyelet lace once, so I had that. Anyway I rushed to buy supplies and this is my first one.

I have normally spent my show funds on quilting supplies and fabric, but at this year's Sydney Show I bought a lot of girly things I've never built into my stash. I have a girl now, no I still can't believe it!
I got home, all excted for vintage off white, cream, bone, beige, mother of pearl and pink, only to find I didn't really have two that matched lol. Take a look for yourself.

Well I obviously need to get more cream, bone eggshell or beige to go with my trims ha. I hate cutting circles so I bought a bunch of felt ones for the back of flowers from ebay and had to laugh when the mail arrived. It was clearly the felt... I know, bare with me, I don't get out much.

So I moved on to finish my daughter's first quilt. Well, finished to the pattern, but I'm going to make it match the mattress size of a single bed with some pin wheels or friendship stars on the top and bottom. Cute, huh? Riley Blake fabric. So adorable.

Also this week I made a sleeping bag with (open ended) zip from top down for my daughter, and a custom request bag to transport a pram on flights. It's a drawstring bag with a bit of Velcro to make the opening a little wider.

And here is the rest of my show spending...
