My baby is 5

I can't believe my baby is five.

He has been so excited today walking around saying "I can't believe it is my birthday" LOL too cute.

We had a very laid back day as he is having a party on Sat but here a few pics of him today.

I can't get any other pics cause they are all on the hard drive on the broken computer Bugger Bugger

About Time !!!!!!!

OK so I thought it was about time I posted on my blog.

Life has been a little crazy to say the least.

Our landlord is selling so we have decided that after nearly 3 years we would get out and find a new house to rent.  The time isn't right for us to have a $700,000 Mortgage.  I found a nice house in Westleigh with four bedrooms, so hopefully enough room for us and my hobbies LOL that is the most important part isn't it? to have plenty of room to sew and create.  I am so depressed about the move because it means I have to move away from this fantastic neighbourhood.  I don't think it will sink in until we move that I can't walk next door to borrow some cloves or to get a sewing opinion.  Think this is definately the hardest part.  the easy part is leaving this house and the mould behind.  I am hoping that we will all be a lot healthier in the new place.

I also thought it was time I posted a pic of my flamingo pants on my cute little neighbour.  Her mum made the top from the matching fabric on the ruffles and it looks sooooo cute together

OK I am just going to sort out some pics of my 5 year old and be back with his birthday pics

Flamingo fabric

Someone asked about the flamingo fabric and I have just remembered to get back here with the details LOL
It is a Michael Miller fabric and I picked it up from the Craft depot
about a month ago.  I actually managed to get 2 meters on sale so this was marked down to $7.95 a meter, what a bargain.  So I still have 2 meters of it since I bought two lots LOL.  Now to decided what to make mmmmmmm

whats a girl to do

with a spare five minutes.  Make a dog jumper of course.

We have had Sandy for nearly a month and Jack has been telling me that she needs a jumper cause she is freezing outside.  So after my neighbour said she had a pattern I grabbed it this morning and while Luke was watching Tv I whipped up a jumper for Sandy.
And what girl doesn't like Burgundy LOL

And no she wasn't banished to the corner I think this Dog has a fear of cameras PMSL she will have to get over that.

And just a cute one of her gorgeous face.

Be back later with more

the finished pants

I love how these turned out they are just so cute

Had Jacks school concert yesterday so went thru all the pics to see if any worked.  Not easy to take pics when you are near the back.
Have a few sewing projects that I want to complete and since Luke has Molly here for a play I might just might get something done.  We will see though.
I have realised that I haven't posted pics of Luke's tshirt.

I made it from the ottobre mag that I borrow from my lovely neighbour and Luke loves it.  I haven't taken pics of it finished yet but here is the spider in his web.

Well better get back to keeping an eye on these kids

whats on the cutting board

OK so it is that time of the year again that I have a lot of birthdays coming up and I need to get some presents made.
The first birthday is the little girl from next door and she is turning 2.  Then I have 4 birthdays to sew for in June and July and that doesn't count my mother or brothers birthdays.  I don't give presents to family unless it is a big birthday.
I am hoping however to make a little something for mum if I can get it all sorted.

So at the moment I have this cut out on my sewing mat

these are going to make the coolest pants in the street for miss 2.
Also I have been working on a quilt for me.  I got the material obsession book sometime and fell in love with the quilt "fanciful flowers" so here it is in the making

this pic was taken on a double bed and I have made it for our queen bed so you can't see it all but you get the idea.
I am so proud of myself for this rather big project.  I still have to sew all the blocks together and then add the borders.  I am loving making this quilt and it has defiantly challenged me.

OK thats it for now I promise I will get pics of Lukes I spy quilt and blog them at some stage.

wow how did that happen

I can't believe I haven't posted in nearly a month. oppps
A fair bit has been happening I have been sewing alot and had sick kids and had an anniversary all in this time LOL

Luke had his tonsils and adenoids out and grommets put in both ears on Thursday and after a pretty miserable day yesterday he woke up bright as a button this morning.  Now I just have to wait for the day 5 ear pain, oh the joys.
We maybe heading back to surgery for his ear again soon.  It looks like he may have a Cholesteatoma and that needs to be removed and is major surgery.  mmm not looking forward to that although we really need to sort out this hearing issue before it gets worse.

So that is what is going on with Luke.
Jack has been going great with a great start to the school year and grade 2.  He is still loving school so that is great.

In other news Anthony and I celebrated 10 years of marriage.  Can't believe it really but then again I can't remember life without him LOL
here are a few of my favs from our wedding ten years ago Friday

And of course of from Friday night 10 years on and a few extra kilos LOL

and I have to add this picture of the table Jack and Luke set for Anthony and I for tea of Friday night

they were so sweet and I wasn't allowed to look but since Anthony didn't get home till 7.30pm grrr I had to enter the room and feed Luke and Jack tea.  Was a nice quiet night though but after Luke getting his tonsils out the day before I was buggered to say the least.

Will be back in the next few days with some sewing.

Birthday gift

Well I wasn't sure if I would be organised enough but alas I was.  Ebony's birthday gift has been made and sent, along with a simple card.  All in time for her 3rd birthday on Wednesday.

I borrowed this pattern from my neighbour, as most of the girls patterns come from her LOL, and whipped it up.  Rather easy to make it was Simplicity 5222.
I am so happy with how it turned out.

well the kids are harassing me for a swim so best be off
