I have been blogging much lately mostly due to studying full time and running a household with seven kids .
I miss it a lot and am going to try and make it a priority at least once a week .
This photo was our back to school first day picture this year... Aren't I lucky !!!!!
I hope everyone in blog world is good and going to try catch up on all your posts too.... I need some sewing inspiration !!!
It has since sat in it's little tub waiting for me to finish just 4 stitcheries ....
Seems ridiculous to me now that I didn't finish it way back then .
So today Deb and I are sewing and I'm determined to get this one done over the school holidays ... Fingers Crossed :))

Here is my cover page and first layout of Project life..... sorry about the blurry photos that was accidental but actually serves the purpose of not identifying some children :)
I think im really going to enjoy this project , I already love taking more photos, spending time sorting through photos , editing them and resizing.
I have been using the free version of Picmonkey which is super easy to use.... I watched Monica Bradfords video here which is super helpful :))

I have started another craft ...
Just to do in my spare time , at least once a week .
I have been collecting "Project Life " goodies for the last few months so I good start in 2014 ...
The bits and bobs for project life are so gorgeous and hard to resist too ... But like all good crafting it's good too have a stash :))
I have never been a scrapbooker and this looked like a great way to document our lives :)

I have made a start on my reading challenge with my first reread- Salem Falls by Jodi Picoult . I was trying to work out when I read it the first time and my guess is about 11 years ago .
11 years ago I only had 2 kids who were 3 and 2 and I had lots more time to read :))
Now hubby and I have expanded to 7 babies and 4 fur babies my reading time may be less but my heart is fuller ( not full though... always room for more )
Note that my copy is very well loved I lent all my Jodi Picoult books out lots as too hate the love .

I'm a little disappointed that I only read 22 books this year but also wonder when I got time to read 22 whole books :))
19 of these books were on my Kindle which surprises me as I questioned the need for a Kindle because I didn't think I would like it as much as a real book. I do like it , its light to hold and its so easy to keep buying books for it .
I don't usually set myself many challenges in the reading department but for 2014 I'm going too..... My goals are to read at least 30 books - 10 of which need to be real hard copies . Also would like to read at least 3 books that I have read previously and loved :)))
Hopefully they are achievable and hell if their not I will have fun trying !!!!

Another Xmas done and dusted the next will be here before we know it .....
I finished Charli's quilt just in time to wrap it up on Chrissy morning ... She loved it :)))
Now 5 weeks of relaxation till we all have to go back to school..... My plan is get some sewing done , read a few books that I have on my Kindle , entertain darling children and complete the two subjects I'm studying externally( sucker for punishment !!)
I hope everyone had a lovely Xmas and I wish all my bloggy friends the most amazing 2014 !!!

On Friday and Saturday I had the pleasure of enjoying a sewing night /day with lots of lovely ladies :))
I got to have some downtime with Peg and Dale outside Home Patch
We had some dinks, nibblies and pizza at Julias on Friday night and it was just so relaxing and lovely . Thanks Julia for opening your house for all us rowdy sewers .
Saturday we started bright and early at Fabric and Trim followed by a trip to the Home Patch . I managed to add to my stash at both shops with some lovely fabric and wool.
Next we went down to the Crago Mill for a yummy lunch what a treasure trove that turned out too be , such lovely antiques . Will defiantly be saving some dollars and going back :)
Thanks for a lovely weekend Bloggers and Sewers
Thanks for the pictures that i borrowed Janice and Peg and a big thanks to Miss Chookyblue for organising this great event .Cant wait for next year!!!!!
Sandy gave me this card for my birthday ... It is the most prettiest card .
It's very inspirational too one day ( in the next 10 years ) I plan on trying to make a quilt just like it probably paper pieces ;)
So for now I will just collect colourful scraps and stash them away !!'

YAY I have a sewing space again .... We have moved a few things around brought a baby gate and moved my fabric , kits and WIPS into their new home
The bottom photo is my WIPs and my collection of Project Life stuff which I'm going to start next year.
There is also lots more fabric that I sorted and folded and put away last night .... I really don't need to buy any more fabric or kits for a very long time .
