So Long, Farewell...


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).

Yummy Fabric - Mmmm

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!

With Love

The end of an era, the beginning of a new and exciting adventure. Have you kept a little hand stitching project out? It's text messages for the next week babe! :)Kylie

I hope your move goes well. Moving is so tough. By the time you get this you will probably have just gotten your computer up and running. :) But know that I was praying for you!

The real meaning of friendship lies in sharing good as well as bad times. Friendship day 2008 is very special with these threads making a splash in the market. The number of threads used to make friendship bracelets varies widely, generally between two and forty threads. Larger numbers of threads can be used, but reflect the expenditure of a great deal of time and energy, and result in a very wide friendship bracelet.

Oh I can't tell you how much I love that Anzac tin! First of all, I love tins, full stop. But seeing the Anzac one reminds me of home! (NZ - I'm married to an American so am kinda stuck here for now lol) Thanks for sharing!
