Tarts Tarts Tarts!!!!

It may have taken me a looooong time but i have finally finished the 10 tarts from my first month of my Pie and Tarts BOM. I had made up all the tart pieces and only started to sew them together last Wednesday . They sew up really quick and are just so cute. So that's 10 down only another 90 to go :)

A Gardeners Journal - Stitch-a-long!!!

I have decided to join in this Stitch-a-long using Anni Downs' book A Gardeners Journal.
I'm very excited to join in and start stitching and have a deadline of sorts, hopefully will keep the motivation going.
Thanks to Chookyblue for organising a great stitch a long.

Noahs 1st Footy Game

Today Noah played his first game of rugby league in a carnival. He is in under 6's and they are all so little and cute. He loved it and cant wait for the season to start.

Back to School 2010

I am a bit late with this post, whoops. So this year i sent off three of my babies to school. Noah started his first year - Kindergarten, Sienna in year 4 and Bailey in year 5. Noah is loving Kinder and hasn't had an issue at all, not sending him until he was 6 really paid off. He loves being with his older brother and sister .Lily now goes to preschool 2 days a week , which leaves me to do a bit more sewing & reading and socialising without an energetic 4 year old .

The Pipers Son- Melina Marchetta

Another great book from Melina Marchetta. I think i have been reliving my youth a bit of late, teenage fiction is really interesting me. Back in the day when i was in high school "Looking for Alibrandi" was my favourite book.I must have read it at least 10 times over the years. The Piper's on got me in just as much, the story of Tom Mackee is a great one.

Pennsylvania Dutch BOM

Finally something I'm up to date with :) This is a great BOM, i really love the fabric..... it is so lovely. A lot of my points are really bad but hey I'm learning.I cant believe the generous amount of fabric you get for this, sometimes about three times more than you need, Unbelievable!!!!!

Pie and Tarts BOM

I have finally been making some Pies for my Pie and Tarts Quilt. It fairly slow going but it is fun. I havent sewn any tarts together yet but have made a lot of pieces.
