My oath to you….. When you are sad…… I will dry your tears When you are scared…I will comfort your fears When you are worried…I will give you hope When you are confused…I will help you cope And when you are lost, and can’t see the light I shall be your beacon, shining ever so bright This is my oath, I pledge to the end.
My poor little blog gets so neglected during school weeks ....
I have been flat out with Uni and finding the motivation to study , driving all over the countryside for work , kids sport etc etc ....
My new Clematis plant that looked almost dead when I brought it home from the nursery ... Was so excited to see that gorgeous pink flower bloom !!!
Miss Lily got new glasses just like her mama...
My great auntie Pat turned 90 ... Here she is with my beloved Nanna Margaret who we have always affectionately called "Big Nan" all our lives .Aunt lived next door to us when we were growing up and is just like our Grandma too !!!
Caught up on my Modern Instabee Blocks only have January's to go ...
Pieced the last two blocks of Gardeners Journal and sewed them together ... Now have a quilt top . Upon searching tonight I found the backing fabric for it so will hopefully sandwich and quilt it over the next couple of weeks ...
Now I have a sad and empty drawer best be filling it up soon ;)
Our Vege garden is going so well this year ... I love when it looks so lush and green!!
The lemon tree is planted and mulched I hope it survives better than the last one !!!
As I was going down the back stairs Bentley my blue heeler was barking madly at Mr Kangaroo who was just standing there staring ... Haven't been many Roos around as they've started clearing way over in the paddock for a new sub division ... You can just see the trucks and diggers in the lemon tree photo . It's all a bit sad really , I will miss our rural outlook when it's gone .
Noah pulled out his photo album today ... Check out these cute kids !!!! Feels like a lifetime ago sometimes and only yesterday at other times .... In reality about 11 years ago .
I love modern technology I just took a photo with my iPhone of the original picture and edited it ... Might try and get all the old photos saved this way ... Mammoth job !!!! I do like too take photos !!!
So im working on being more productive this year... I will be studying Full time again in the hope too finish my degree in 18 months -2 years.
My goals are ;
Read for enjoyment
Blog at least once a week- remember to blog more family stuff
Have designated sewing times/ nights and hopefully a Sewing day a week
Watch all the boxsets I have brought but not got around to watching
Complete all Uni work ahead of time
Lots of family time doing fun things with the children
Staying Organised in the home - meal planning, cleaning schedule
So seems easy right... Haha. My main enemy in achieving all this is my phone where I spend too much time on Facebook, Instagram, Reading Blogs, Candy Crush, Hay Day etc etc. So I need to learn to put the phone up and break the addiction :)))
Before any of this happens I have a couple of pressing things I need to finish ASAP-
A gardeners Journal
3 blocks for partners in Aussie Modern Instabee over on Instagram
Heres a few photos of the family from late 2014 lots of fun times with grandmothers and cousins !!
After not being apart of Stitch a Long for the past few years I have decided to join in again cause I have missed it so much .
This year we are making Anni Downs from Hatched and Patched new design A Natures Journey
Now I just have to decide whether I am going to make it with my stash or go with Block of the Month in Annis gorgeous fabric choices .
If you too check out the blog it is here http://stitch-a-long.blogspot.com.au/.
So I should have had this finished many years ago but you know how it goes ... Life gets in the way , you lose interest , you start something new and exciting :))
So this is all I have left to do and some piecing which with a bit of pushing .... Oh I mean encouragement from Miss Chooky I am trying to finish by the end of the year !!!! So I am madly stitching for the next 3 days !!!
