Sienna's Strip Quilt

This is quilt is made using a "Berry Delicious" Jelly Roll and white muslin, backing is some yardage from the same range I love all the colours in this quilt, so bright. So suited to my big girl who has a love for all and every fruit.
The weather has turned cold again so i have enjoyed keeping warm under this quilt while i sewed the binding on.

New Family Additions

In the last couple of weeks our animal family has grown (again).
First of all on Easter Thursday we got our pound puppy "Cooma" , he is a 5 month old Staffy and such a gorgeous dog .He kept digging out of the yard of the place he lived before and they got sick of it and told the pound to keep sad. He hasnt tried to dig anywhere here but he does get loads of love and attention

Then today J came home with two more chooks to add to the brood. I wanted Isa Browns to add to the mix. Im looking forward to getting 4 eggs a day.

So now the count is 2 dogs, 1 cat, 2 Guinea Pigs and 4 chooks :)

Gardeners journal Block G

I have finished the first block in the Stitch-a-long. Seeing everyone Else's finished work has kept me motivated and so inspired. I have avoided french knots in the past but i was brave and practised and now most of mine are passable..Yay.

Easter 2010

Here are the kids in there new pyjamas Nan and Pa got them for easter. We have had a fairly quiet relaxing day. We went visiting the family this morning, came home and watched "Titanic". The kids hadnt seen it before and they really liked it, it was still heartbreaking for me :(. Had beautiful baked lamb cooked in the slow cooker for dinner and now sitting down watching "Domestic Blitz" our new favourite family show to watch together

Pie and Tarts

Finally Block one is complete, it was a mammoth job but was lots of fun....Nine more to go :)
