Bits & Pieces

I got another project ready for traveling ,i have wanted to make this candle mat for awhile.

I also decided to put some heavy interfacing in behind these xmas decorations to give them a bit more body.

I was happy to get a lovely doona cover and cushions when spotlight had a half off sale a few weeks ago,plus i managed to get some lovely white with a navy polka dot flannelette sheets for the bed as well.

We have had heaps of kangaroos in our yard every day for awhile now and i never get tired of watching them.
Got to see 2 bucks having a shuffle yesterday it gave me quite a fright,but it was over as soon as it started as one backed away quite quickly after the first punch.

 This young mum had a joey in her pouch and i tried quite a few times to get a picture of the little joey with its head out ,but i kept missing the shot.

I hope your day is a good one.

Been Busy

I had a lovely time at my grandies school for a Mother's Day lunch,got to spend special time with my DD2,3 grandies and their other nana Bev.

I also was very spoilt and Bev invited us over to spend Mother's day with them,we are very lucky that both DD's inlaws are lovely people and we all get on so well ,we had a lovely roast and the grandies running around everywhere it was a lovely afternoon.

Last Friday i had a go at cooking some pulled pork it was a recipe out of Danille' Walker's book against all grains,and it turned out beautifully ,it pulled apart so easy with a couple of forks.

Finally got to meet my very cute great niece Greta,what a sweetie she is.

I have thirty squares made now and it is a project that ican do in the car while travelling.

I have got all the pieces of felt cut out to make 3 of each of these 4 xmas decorations.

I have also traced out these 5 xmas stitcheries to stitch and i have also got the hexies ready to do for the hexies blocks.

I have also got the hexies ready to stitch together for a Judy Newman dilly bag .I have made a couple of these for gifts and now i want to make one for myself.

So i think i will have plenty of projects to keep me busy while we are travelling around,hopefully my sewing and stitching mojo will come back,lol.

Hope you all had a lovely Mother's day.
And i hope your day is a good one.

Under The Weather

The grandies all loved their easter bags filled with chocolates.

We had so much fun on Easter Sunday the grandies played footy and played dressups,Adie and i entertained the family with her beautiful singing and my wayward dancing,lots of laughing and giggles,so much fun when the family get together.

Lol little Murphy dressed as Harry potter casting spells,lol he was turning us all into frogs.

I have been unwell for about 3 months now ,went to the Dr's last week and had chest xrays and blood tests and i am waiting to do another 2 tests ,i think i have either COPD or Asthma,either way it has left me exhausted.
The Dr put me on steroids for 3 days and i felt like a new woman lol,so i have more energy now,i hadnt even been sewing or stitching which is unusual for me.
But i did try my hand at crochet and that is what i am doing in the evenings.
I hope to make a blanket.

 I also bought a new cookbook and made some gluten free bread and it was really nice,made with cashew flour.

 Today i finally got around to finishing my cushion ,a lovely design by Vickie at our LGS get together.

We also bought a new annex for the caravan,so we are all set for travelling now.

Hope your day is a good one.

For Friday night with friends i decided to do some more work on my cushion.
I got the striped borders on.

Then put the next lot of borders on.
To see what the other ladies got up to go here and a big thankyou to my buddy Chez for hosting our productive night .

And i found some buttons that i have bought from Fee.
Thats all i got up to as i have been without an internet for a couple of days and spent a lot of time yesterday and the day before talking to telstra,its all sorted out now i have changed plans and now have a more modern modem ,my other one was 15 yrs old lol.
I must say i was very impressed with the telstra people that i have been dealing with and both times i got nearly straight through.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Baby Laundry bag

I finished a cute stitchery to make a baby laundry bag,its a lovely pattern by Natalie Bird called All creatures Great and Small.

I decided to add some ric rac .

Used some more tilda fabric.

And all finished.

Now it can be added with the other baby gifts,i might make some bibs to add to the hamper as well.

I am going well with my granny squares so i have bought some white and grey wool today to make a knee rug,that will keep me out of mischief for awhile.

Hope your day is a good one.
