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.

Happy mothers day

I had a nice sleep in and breaky in bed and then went to gold class tonight without any males or children in sight LOL it was bliss.

And just cause I can a pic

I promise to get my butt into gear and post some more pics of my sewing and the kids.
