Bright Sunshiny Days

We have been thoroughly enjoying the Summer School holidays – sleeping in and catching up with precious friends. Jenny and her gorgeous kids came over for a day of sewing and fun. Amy has just started sewing lessons and showed me the selvedge pin cushion she had made. So I got my stash of selvedges out and started sewing them together – it is VERY addictive. I hope to turn this lot it into a bag (eventually).

The kids also found a picture of babushkas in the newspaper and made me a card too, Miss Georgia is the model. Thank you very much, I love it!

DH and Mr smileykylie (Kylie’s DH)

He is over in Perth for work. We had a yummy cooked breaky this morning (which explains the state of my DH’s t-shirt). The boys have just gone off to Hillarys Marina and are going to see Avatar in 3D tonight. There are plenty of Tim Tams in the fridge too (their biscuit of choice).

Katherine isn’t the only one doing some internet fabric shopping :) I managed to get 10 half yards of Rosalie Quinlan's ‘Grandmothers Flower Garden’ fabric (from the fabricbee Etsy store) to go with my Christmas present from DH - ‘a Stitch in Time’ (Rosalie’s 2nd book).

PS Welcome to the world Jackson Thomas Lane, a precious baby boy born to my cousin Marissa and her DH Matt in London. Isn’t he a cutie.

Oh summer...I can't wait for it to warm up!

That fabric looks like it is going to be fun! I can't wait to see your finished project:)

You shouldn't post pictures of babies. They make me want to have one and we don't want to have a baby right now!

Enjoy your sunshine!
