My Place & Yours

This week I had to join in MPAY again because I have the bestest pin cushion ever!
No really. I do.

Isn't it the best!

I picked it up from this fabulous shop The Crafty Squirrel
Morgan has loads of handmade lovely's as well as super cute crafty, vintage gifts and things.
A must visit if you are down this way :)

Clearly, this is one of my many 'helpers'! Hard to believe that when I started blogging she was a baby and now....the terriblest of threes xox

Things you don't see in the NT

Yesterday the 'rat had a hail storm. A first for the 2 youngest. They loved it!
We were lucky though. This is the only damage around our house. Others....not so lucky.

And these picture, taken 17 hours AFTER the storm! I can only imagine how it looked yesterday.

I thought it had snowed overnight and we'd missed it!

Hope y'all are well and dry xox

My Place & Yours

It's back! Vic is once again at the helm. This weeks theme is on the shelf. And while I haven't played before I really really really want to show you whats on my shelf! 

Yep. We now have 3 wonderful blythe girls!!! 
They are all wearing dresses I (poorly) made.
This shelf is in our living room. Its one of those peek a boo slot things in between living "zones" or whatever....

Pop over to Vic's to see more nifty shelves xox

You may think that these prolong periods of silence from me means I am not creating. 
You would be mistaken.
While life is, different, and I am still adjusting, I am indeed sewing!

Last day of term had me visit Mill Rose Cottage for a tea set class with the ever amusing, insanely clever Jodie aka. Ric Rac. Thankfully I had Bec there to keep me safe ;)

It was a wonderful day! Truly just what I needed 

Sometime at the end of last term I had a house full of delightful visitors. 5 extra kids and one very crafty mum, The Fi's :) Always a blast having them stay. Sewed anything? Well yes, thanks for asking

Don't Look Now's Lilly Pilly quilt. Perfect for us with 6 birds hiding in the tree :) I purchased it as a kit about a year ago from Ballarat Patchwork.

I did try my best to do like the pattern says, however Fi convinced me to do what I know (easy or K.I.S.S) and just heat and bond the lot down. I am very grateful for her suggestion! Still a lot of work to go but VERY happy with is so far!

And lastly for today I did a Harlequin Stars class at Ballarat Patchwork!! Its a foundation pieced stunner. Emma at has made not one but 2 of these amazing quilts this year. I managed a block ;)

You need to pop into Ballarat Patchwork and check out the full quilt. 
It is a m a z i n g! 

There is more to show you but I need a lay down now. Hard work blogging when you haven't done it in ages teehee xox
