It is cold and freezing and slushy here this weekend , no snow just the freezing wind off it as its laying all around us .
Was reading some blogs and Instagram for inspiration and couldn't decide what too see today .... I have two quilts that I need too sandwhich and quilt but too many little feet to do that ....
So decided too pull out my Pies and Tarts tub.... Have only been making for I don't know ..... 5 years !!! I still have 5 blocks unopened

Miss Lily got new glasses just like her mama...
Just a snippet for memories sake ...

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 !!!
It's been raining here all night .... I love the sound and smell of it .

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 !!
