Have started on my first girlie quilt...

I have been commisioned to make my first very girlie girlie quilt and I was so excited about this I started on it yesterday even though I have other unfinished projects and two essays to write. Will finish it off next week and then be good and apply myself to school work instead!

In the bath with my hat on

Today little Max insisted on bathing with his new hat on. Contrary to most kids who will not keep a hat on, Max will not take his off. Last night he howled when he had to take it off in bed. So here he is, in the bath with his hat on. And why not.

Dylan's birthday, cake and sunshine. And waterfight!

Dylan will be ten on Wednesday and we had a little party for him yesterday. I made the best ever victoria sponge cake - see max attacking it! And then the boys got the hose out and soaked each other and everything near them. It was hot and sunny. Perfect day!

I think I found a template I like...


And also i provisionally got a quilt order from a lovely woman at work, this time I get to make a girlie pink one (all have been boys' ones so far, am desperate for some florals and some dusky pinks). Have a boy one to make for the lovely Spike and one for the lovely Lucas to hand over on Sunday. I do worry as Etsy has so far landed me one order and Folksy although I got an enquiry within 24 hours of listing has so far yielded nothing at all. And I do not need to make enough to keep us all in ice creams this summer!

Found this beautiful poppy near work, had to snap it, am SO impressed with how it came out, in very bright sun, snapped with iphone as camera not in my bag (it normally is always) but just goes to show the unexpected effects are in fact what makes the photo. So i just HAD to post this as my main blog photo. Love poppies anyway... x

Want to talk about my handmade cheeky quilts, quickly

So I have decided to leave work and chance the world of handmade goodies. I have made some gorgeous little quilts, terribly addictive they are too, there is just something about putting the layers together and stitching it that is scarily satisfying! Have a look see what you think...

I don't understand Twitter at all, someone help!

Is it just me ( it must be) but I just don't understand how Twitter works, I just see random comments that make no sense and how I would join in with that I don't know... Argh x

Wow finally I am blogging...



SO everyone keeps telling me I must have a blog, and I know I do but frankly I have had NO time wot with three kids, studying for a degree, starting a business making quilts and things, and still working - but not for long now, 6 weeks to go today and desperately counting!. But no more excuses and here we are. I am actually supposed to be studying, the lovely Kate has Max (2) for a few hours, but hey, it's too sunny outside, I have taken some great pics i want to upload and i want to stick some more goodies on Etsy so i have watched a little of the DVD (studying-lite) but first I want to get this off the ground.
