This is what my house currently looks like, I have bruises from tripping over packing boxes. All this will be loaded onto a van on Saturday and whisked away from Pingelly to Ellenbrook - Can't wait :)
My work colleague Jackie, and 'The Kids'
I finished my last day at Mobile day care yesterday, I have been working there since the beginning of the year. I was so nervous about returning to Child care after such a long break, but once I started there was no turning back. Jackie and the children have been a JOY to work with, I will miss them all very much :(
Now for some treasures I have been packing...
Some of my sewing tin collection
The round 'Poppy" covered tin belonged to my Nanna Doris, I remember rummaging through it on Sunday afternoons (when we would go to the Grandparents for lunch after Church). There was always treasure to be found, I still have a lot of her original sewing items - bias binding, spools of cotton, buttons, zips for my Pop's work clothes etc. The other 2 tins are ones I have collected when buying my Arnott's ANZAC biscuits for ANZAC Day (celebrated in Australia & New Zealand on the 25th April).
My friend Kelli is also packing & moving house. She gave me some of her yummy fabric stash that she no longer needed - which I gladly took off her hands. Thank You Kelli, I have plans for this lot :)
One last photo...
Heather Bailey 'Pop Garden'
I picked up this fantastic fabric from my favourite West Australian fabric store - Textile traders - for $5:50 a metre - Bargain!!!
Well that's all folks - for now anyway. I will be going off line from tonight for approximately a week, depending on how long it takes to set up our new Internet account. Cold Turkey again - Argh!
PS Kylie is looking at putting together a 'knickers' tutorial (see post below). Watch out for it in the future.
PPS *Another Giveaway Alert*, Joy from JoyPatch is having a 'Ric Rac and Roses' Bag Pattern Giveaway - Go for it!
PPPS Friday Morning - My eldest Chicken (Rachel) now has the Pox. She is so sad about missing the last day of term and saying goodbye to her friends :(
