building buying baking and bludging

Taking my inspiration from Janelle for a bit of alliteration in the heading….

The Zig Zag Quilt is building into a gorgeous project, all those yummy Amy Butler fabrics have come together beautifully, this is the project on the top of the list to finish after church tomorrow.  The Wee Princess has already claimed this quilt for her bed, it should look great all quilted up.  This Zig Zag design would make a great Boy’s quilt, my Dad’s in need of a quilt so I might have to keep an eye out for some fabric, the stash has a bit of a female flavour.  Always looking for an excuse to buy more fabric!

I bought these cute new shoes on Friday.  They were in the discount bin at one of our local shoe shops.  I have seen them inside for twice the price, so when I saw they had my size I snapped them up.  I have very average sized feet so I very rarely find discount shoes, woo hoo!  The brand is Swimming With Sharks and they have some very cute shoes.  I would have bought red ones but they didn’t have any red left :(

We will have some time for baking over the next few weeks so when I saw this mini bundt cake baking tray half price it came home with me too!  So tonight after hearty soup and pane di casa we whipped up a batch of vanilla mini bundts with lemon glaze…… and my DH has just delivered a nice cuppa tea, a perfect match.  The Wee Princess offered to sample the icing, a number of times….

And so to bludging, according to the Aussie Slang Dictionary:

Bludger : lazy person, layabout, somebody who always relies on other people to do things or lend him things

It’s the Winter School Holidays here, two wonderful weeks of sleeping in, PJ Days, baking, sewing, no rushing about, watching movies, reading, endless pots of tea, play days, friends, catching up, a bit of window shopping, hot chocolates at Handorfs, yippee! (I’m just not thinking about the fighting kids, guilt, kilo’s and cabin fever…I’m not!) As you can see above our dog Lucy has been practicing  for the holidays already, she knows how to chill out.

So I’ll attempt to capture a bit of the lazy holidays and share it with you lovely folk.

Love and Hugs
Kylie

I love the look of those bundt cakes. Maybe we should have had a cook off, or at least a swap.

Hope you are enjoying your holidays.
