Surprise! Yes I'm back after a little break from blogging. To be perfectly honest with you I just couldn't be bothered writing anything and downloading photos - is that bad?!
I had such a ridiculously busy lead up to Christmas that I think I just fell in a heap after New Years. Do you know I was running so fast to get something done and out the door one day about a week before Christmas that I fell over!!! Right in the middle of my living room. I hit my head really hard on the sofa, grazed my arm and landed on one hip which ended up with about an 8cm circular bruise on it. So I decided that it was time to slow down for a while!
We have been chilling out mostly. Sometimes with friends, sometimes with family, often in our PJ's for much of the day, and often just hiding from the excessively hot weather we have been experiencing.
We enjoyed a much anticipated visit from our Dutch cousins. As there wasn't a lot of English spoken it took the trampoline to break the ice. A couple of bounces and everyone was giggling and having fun.
I've done a little bit of sewing with the girls and their friends. Chloe, Lucinda and their friend Mia went through my fabric scrap box and created a mosaic each. I offered to turn them into something useful.
And here is Lucinda's - photo also by Lucinda.
The girls also participated in a class at Amitie, check out their creations here
And I have been working on a few projects - some still a secret and some just for the fun of it. I have to get my winter quilt done for the Four Seasons quilt swap for mailing on the 30th but another slightly larger project has been taking up my time. All will be revealed in about a week!!
I have been visiting all my friends in blogland of course, and even won a prize!
I actually won the green bag but generous Jodie added all the other lovelies. Thanks heaps Jodie!!
The bag is currently being used to hold this little crochet project - a cushion for Chloe.
I figure if I can manage this then I might attempt a granny square quilt at some point this year. We are (my husband is) repainting all the girl's furniture the most divine shade of aqua. I also have fabric for curtains. I will probably show you all when it is finished.
And you might be wondering why this title. Well one of my bestest friends has been bemoaning the fact that she logs onto my blog first thing and there's never any new post. So good morning Christina and good morning/evening to the rest of you. Thanks for all your lovely comments regarding my wedding photos - it was rather self indulgent but I rarely look at them and loved showing them off.
I leave you with some shots of some of the ornaments I received in the 2007 Holiday Ornament swap.
