I am so slack at this whole blog thing.  I keep wondering if I keep going with it but it is easy for me to come here and look up the things I like to keep track of as well.  So I will try and keep it a little more up to date.

We have moved now and I have a huge house and sewing/office room so now I just need to get a little more unpacking done and I can get back into action.

Will leave it there as I have to much to do, sewing for my three week old neice is now on the list as well.

Quiet Saturday arvo

Well it has been a nice quite day here today.

We picked up a new buffet for the kitchen and then the kids wanted to do some paintings.

Luke was a powerhouse having an absolute ball and trying to paint as many pictures as he could. Jack finished two pictures. One was a copy from a book that we loved the illustrations in and the other was the hungry caterpillar.

He did such a great job and of course I had to have a little paint as well.

I have so much to do and I should have taken pics of Jacks new tshirt but I forgot. Will get pics tomorrow.

anyway here a pic of our day and the kitchen table.

Will be back with more monkey quilt pics as well, all I have to do is sew on the binding and it is ready to drop off next weekend.

back in the groove

Well I decided that it was time I had some new pjs and since Anthony has been away or working late I started working on them this week.  I have shocked myself by actually finishing them LOL

And I love them infact the tshirt I made I am going to have to do a few more to wear during the day.  I am also going to use the butterfly applique idea on a skirt as well just have to make a start on that.

what I am working on

I generally have a few things on the go at once in this place.

The house is a mess and I must do some kind of house work today but over the weekend I finished the monkey quilt which I started last week.  My new niece was born just before xmas last year and I had not made her any thing until I found this gorgeous pattern for a quilt on this blog (sorry blogger is playing up and I can't add the hyperlink)

So I started last week while Luke was recovering from his op and finished the top yesterday and now have to get some backing and something for the binding.  I am thinking brown with white spots for the binding.

I also got Lukes pjs finished for his trip the the hospital on Tuesday last week.  He has to get his ear drum repaired and get the packing out from last Aprils cholesteatoma removal.  This kid is such a trouper.

He loves these pj's and although he doesn't look that happy in the pic he had surgery the day before so he is still a little washed out.  I actually used a t-shirt pattern and altered it for the top and then added velcro so he didn't have to worry about ties and I didn't have to worry about snaps and reinforcement.  He loves them and that is all that matters.  Now Jack has put his order it LOL.  I can't keep up with these growing boys. Jack put on last years track pants that I made him and he has grown at least 2 inches.  So that means new school tracky pants as well.  better get sorted as Autumn is creeping up quickly.

Also finished the top of my quilt for our bed and I love love love it.

Can't beleive it has been so long

well I have been a bad bad blogger.

opps what is going on it is already 2010 how has that happened.

we have moved since my last post, Luke has fractures his foot and Xmas has been and gone, and I have posted nothing oooooopps.

I really need to sit down and do a catch up but me being me it is nearly 11pm at night and I am buggered.  I did how ever go to my Friends house tonight and do a few crayon drawings.  She has discovered Spoonflower where you can download you fabric desings and get them printed so I was trying to come up with a few fun boys designs.

Anyway I will leave it at that and try and add some pics tomorrow of what I have been up to and what I made for xmas.

night all
