Let's just get on with it shall we!

I promised my dear bloggy friend Thimbleanna that I would post this week. So I sat and wondered what I would write about as I'm slightly out of practice. And given this is actually my 100th post I thought it needed to be special and important.

Then I realised that there was never going to be a really special time to start again and that I should just post. So hi! I'm back. Hopefully some of you are still about.

Here's a couple of pics of some stuff I'm currently working on.

WIP!

WIP!

Sacha's Birthday scarf

All taken with my brand new baby!

Me and my new toy!

Of course there are many other projects I have on the go but I'll get into those further down the track. And I do know that I owe people things which are coming I promise!

And I guess I should mark this occasion by giving something away. Not sure what that will be yet but I'm sure I can dig up something. So leave me a quick hello so I know you are still out there and I'll get one of the girls to pick a winner this Sunday 21st Feb.

Hey Louise, Welcome Back!!!

I haven't blogged in awhile either, so I know how hard it is to get back into it. I just have to suck it up and get back into it too.

Love the stuff you've been working on, so much gorgeous colour!

What a great camera, look forward to seeing heaps more photos of your gorgeous creations, both here and on flickr!

Aww. those are some very cute projects. thanks for coming back and sharing! blogging is one of those things that happen in seasons for me. it's hard to motivate myself to blog every single day. i don't know how some people do it.

Ali said...

Ooh, look at your smart new (red) camera! I love how manufacturers have finally realized that it is possible to make a serious bit of electronic kit without it being black or silver.

Nice to see you back in the blog-pool!

Hi Louise, When adding to my fabric stash at Amitie last year, you suggested I check out the world of blogs (I didn't have a clue what you were talking about).
I have, it's amazing - THANKS!!!
Happy to now be following you.
Cheers
Jenny

Hello! Nice to see you here again!

twirling betty said...

I came to your blog just as you were winding down a bit so I'm delighted to see you're winding up again! The things you make are so lovely and I look forward to what's to come. In the meantime, I may need to marry that red camera. Love it.

Stacey said...

Well hello there! Nice to see you back. Love that red camera!

Melody said...

Gotta love a red camera!

So nice to see you back again, you have been missed. Great projects you've undertaken, but that goes without saying. =)

I Love Pretty Little Things said...

I Love your blog, so I am glad that you are back! A red camera, how fun!

peppermintpatcher said...

Very nice to see you around these parts again. With a camera as snazzy as that I can only imagine that you'll be photographing and blogging up a storm!

Andi said...

So much lovely crafting!!!
And I absolutely love your new baby.
Did you do much research? Should I be picking your brains before I start my own research for a baby of my own?
Nice to see you today.
Andi :-)

Jane said...

I'm not actually 'still here' because I'm new. I'm in love with the quilt you received in your swap and have had a lovely time exploring your posts. Looking forward to more to come!

Thanks for sharing your world with us all!

Katy said...

please don't show me dresden plates and appliqued hexes, I'm really trying to resist te urge to make another dresden plate quilt with little hexy flowers in the bits where I did spots on the last one. Why'd you do that to me?

A red camera? I want one!!! I don't care if I can use it or not - it's red and red is my favourite colour. Mid you, it does take a lovely pic of your lovely self, so maybe it would do the same for me? Worth a try...

May 2009 was the last time you posted. You slack cow ;P Good to have you back!

Monique said...

I had a look regularly if you were back again waiting for the lovely things you create to appear on your blog. So I am very glad your back in blogtown!

LondonMum said...

Ooooh what a nice surprise to see a post! All that red and pink makes me want to squeal; love it! Cheers!
