swap and that book

Hi there! Been awhile. Hubby back at work after 4 weeks home. Always really, really hard for us when he goes back. Kids are back at school!! I just can't hide my excitement!! I love all my babies, but 4 weeks of holidays is just. too. long! Can't believe I seriously thought we could home school. Hats off to those who do.

Heaps of sewing going on here, most of which I can't show you. Partly because they are surprises and partly because I forgot to take photos.....sometimes I wonder about me!

I do, however, have pictures of my swap I received from Kelly! So excited! Bit like Christmas really!

Lovely apron, fabric, love the boy one, I don't have enough boy prints, handmade card, 4 spotty buttons, and my favorite thing a gorgeous flower fabric brooch!

Isn't it lovely! I have even brought some more plain tops to wear with it.
Love it! Thank you Kelly!

In other news, I have a new obsession, Twilight. I haven't read a real book for like 10 years. And I'm hooked! Good thing hubby is at work because everything in the house has stopped for the last 3 days while I read the first one. Going into big town tomorrow to get the next one. Does he, doesn't he??!! Too much! NEED to know NOW. This is why I stopped reading. Consumes me too much lol! It's this lady and this lady's fault if hubby asks :P Better go and do some house work before I get the next one....! xox

Ohhh, I had to start reading them because my 15 year old son had to read them because all the girls were reading them... have fun!

No the idea of homeschooling scares the pants off me. Happy reading.

God, I still haven't recovered from my twilight experience. I keep scouring the shelves and coming up with nothing new so am re-reading. I'm a total twi-tragic.

Now that i have twilight back, I might just have to go read it. again.
