It's nearly done !!!

Well i have finally finished the top of the kaleidoscope quilt all i have to do now is buy some fabric so i can finish the borders. so it could be a while till it gets finished as i have to wait until i can get to Geraldton (5 hours away) to buy it. But at least all the hard work is done. It's not a very good photo and you can see the kings foot underneath too, but at least you have proof that it is all done. And it has only taken me 6 months in doing. Now i am up to finishing a baby quilt for my friend and then i am not starting any more quilts until my ufo stack is finished as i have 3 quilts ready to be pinned and quilted. So until next time ciao for now.

Today was a good day ! today i managed to make 2 dozen muffins 1doz choc caramel and 1 doz bananananana walnut. Both very yummy and easy peasy to make and even easier to eat. All the washing was done and yes dare i say it some patchwork, perhaps i should have told you to sit down first and hopefully by Sunday a certain quilt top will be done. Cross fingers. BUT only if my sewing machine stays in it's current condition. Today i had to do some surgery on my machine as it was making noises and not doing so well, so i took it apart and gave it a bit of a clean out and then i had to fight the huge monstrous dust bunny that formed when all the small insignificant bits of dust statically clung together, but the bunny and i are friends now after we had a cuppa and a chat and he really is just misunderstood. And we have decided that rather than taking the kids to the movies on the weekend we could do a wee bit of bonding and go together instead. But all is good with the world and my sewing machine is now behaving itself. So until we next meet in the cyber world take care and watch out for my friend he might be lurking near your machine too. ciao

Thankyou !!!

It has been a few days since i last blogged. That sounds an awful like a confession doesn't it ?( takes me back to church days) But i must say a HUGE THANK YOU to Lisa of a spoonful of sugar whom on occasion has helped me in the blogging world on technical issues. Not much has been happening in the feral house as of late, as school and work have been the main grind. Although the King of the ferals is as i am currently typing rearranging and cleaning out the back shed, I would post a photo but he is a shy creature and it might scare him away from finishing the job. And bless their cotton socks, the feral fairies are hindering oops i mean helping him. It has been a wee chilly here the last couple of days and the wind is blowing a gale and it makes me just want to have a hot bath and curl up in front of the telly, but with 3 kids nigh on impossible to do it quietly so i will have to wait awhile until they are in bed. Well that's all to report for now so until the next time ciao.

Cute Fabric

Today i went and bought some fabric, we have a limited range to buy in Carnarvon as we don't have a fabric store of any kind but our local arts and crafts center stocks a small amount from Finch's Nest quilting and patchwork store in Geraldton, which is a mere 5 hour drive away from here. I have been meaning to make a small cot quilt for a friend of mine since she had her little boy and by the time i get around to it he will probably be 21. So these few remnants are what i have chosen and may be next week after i have finished off my kaleidoscope quilt i can start it. along with all the other things i have to start. I have been busy sewing for markets again and it has taken up most of my free time this week although i am more organised than i thought i would be. We have a bit of unsettling new to share too and that is that FF3# has to have an operation ( maybe, we have to wait for the surgeons appointment first) she has an umbilical hernia according to the doctor, she is 4 and her belly button enters a room 5 minutes before the rest of her and as the last 12 months have gone along her belly is poking out more and more, so now is the time to get it fixed. But the doc said not to stress about it as it is very common, but we are still worried. Well anyhoo i must away and make a slice as we have a visitor coming for afternoon tea today, so until next we meet ciao.
