Well there have been plenty of things happening in our little world.  First of all Jack has been sick again with almost all of last week off school.  But the good news is he will be getting his tonsils out next Tuesday so that is all good, he is really being good about it all as well.  He did ask me what happens if he isn't asleep or if he feels something but we have had a chat and it is all cool.  It is amazing how perceptive they are.

I have been to see my gorgeous little nephew and what would my blog be without a pic of him LOL
the tiny thing on his new rug.  Stupid me didn't take a pic of me with him. grrr can't believe I forgot to take one
isn't he just perfect awwwww

And also it is my nieces 3rd birthday today, so we have had crazy kids talking on web cam this arvo.  It really is lucky we are interstate cause when these three get together it is a made house LOL

Will sign off with that since I better get the vegies done

Lots of things

OK so I have been busy trying to get a few things done lately
First of was my new nephews quilt and it is now complete.  Was not expecting him early so that threw a spanner in the works PMSL

I had a little play with free motion quilting I am am rather happy with the results.  Not much in the quilt but I wasn't sure how well it would turn out or how easy it would be since I had only practised on smaller pieces.  I love the binding fabric with this it is just fantastic how well it suits the quilt.

So now all I have to do is post it.  I am in the process of booking my flights and car hire to get to Bendigo for a few days to see my little Nephew.  It is getting exciting and I can't wait to meet him.

I am still working on my Nans quilt and have decided to free motion quilt that one as well, so it may take a little longer.  Also have Amy Kate's bday presents to do as well, arghhhh it all comes at once.
But with my new machine I should be able to whip them all up PMSL
here she is.  

It is the singer Quantum 9940 cause I just couldn't afford a new Pfaff.  But this machine is a beauty I love it it is so nice to sew with.  Now I can't wait for mum to come visit and have a play.
 now the other thing I have been working on was a mini album for a very close friends bday. But since they are not my kids I am going to have to do a little blurring of faces before I post it on the web.

Better get back to sewing
