3 - Loving and giving

Entering is very easy:

A Bubba Chenille Giveaway

Don't you just love a giveaway. I know I do. I will have one organised for Sunny Street Designs shortly, enough about me now..........

The lovely Miriam, the creator of Bubba Chenille is having a giveaway. Miriam makes lovely children's clothing and household items using vintage chenille. My daughter has 2 of her skirts and we have a heat pack as well. I really love her creations and they are so well made. And to top that all off, she is just a really lovely lady as well.

So enough rambling from me, CLICK HERE to be taken to the Bubba Chenille blog to enter the comp and join in all the fun. You better hurry, cause it is closing soon.

See you later

School Reunion

Hello everyone

Well we were all up at an ungodly hour to drive my husband to the airport. He flew to Newcastle to catch up with school friends from about 25 years ago. I hope he is having a great time, but I do think he will be waking up with a very sore head tomorrow. He had started drinking at 2pm catching up with some mates..............glad it is him and not me.

He is staying with his parents and will be coming home on Monday afternoon. I think he arranged it that way so he didn't have to fly with a hangover. Clever.

Ella and I have had a lovely day. We went to IKEA and spent about 3 hours checking things out and playing. I pick up some fabrics and Ella got a few bits and bobs. We had a lovely day. Tomorrow we are going to hang about at home and spend the day just playing and I am looking forward to it.

I hope my husband has a blast and comes home with heaps of good stories for me.

Does anyone have some school reunion stories? I don't, I chickened out of mine a few years back.

My Creative Space - Yay it is back for 2010

I don't know about you all, but I love playing along with Kirsty's 'My Creative Space'. I love it because I don't really have anyone to show my crafty pursuits to as my husband gets really bored with it and just say's ' that looks good darls' after he is prompted. Same comment every time, ho hum.......

Anyway, I have decided to do more patchwork quilting and combine my love of stitching with it. I have about 4 projects on the go at the moment and have the biggest stash of fabric to get through. I am looking forward to heaps of craftiness in 2010.

My pics here include:

  • the little quilt I am currently working on. This has now been pieced together and I have added some stitched hearts. I will add a pic when it is finished.
  • My little snacks I had to have while I was sewing - this helps to keep the creative juices flowing!!!!
  • My new sewing machine. We are still getting to know each other but we are off to a good start.
  • The last pic is of all of my christmas presents. My stash is so full and I have so many projects in the wings.

If you want to play along, go HERE.

Craft is the best!

My Place and Yours ... is back courtesy of Punky & Me

Yay, I love playing along with this when I have the time. Thanks to Punky & Me for hosting it this year. 

And another Yay, what a good way to get back into blogging for the year. I have big plans.

Anyhow, I am currently reading Gerald Durrell's 'My Family and Other Animals'. I have decided to read more this year and always seem to struggle on what to pick to read, so I have joined in on Pip Lincolne's book club. If  you are interested go HERE.

Happy reading.
