{eb dolls quilt swap 2011} what I sent . . .

Yesterday Helen opened her package I sent her for the dolls quilt swap this year, and thankfully she loves it : )
I was really stuck as to what to make for Helen, as she is certainly an accomplished quilter and make some gorgeous quilts!
But I went with something different to challenge myself, tiny 1 inch squares and swirly quilting.
Its not perfect, but certainly very fresh and crisp and colourful!

{eb dolls quilt swap 2011} what I received . . .

A massive thankyou to Car for the stunning quilt she sent me for this years swap.
She seemed to know exactly what I would love.
Its perfect, very me.
And it will be a wonderful addition to my sewing room wall with the quilts from previous years swaps.
Thankyou Car x

{all grown up} Master T

This week Master T graduated from Kinder and is off to big school next year as a Prep.
It's a sad and a happy time - sad that he is growing up too fast which tells me I must be getting old! Happy that he is on to the next adventure in his life.
It also means I'm back to just two little ones at home with me, maybe a little bit more sewing time . . . ?

{cubby house progress}

My hubby has been busy over the past few weekends building a fort/cubby house for the 3 little ones. And oh my goodness, he is doing very well! For someone with the use of only one good hand, he's gone from diesel mechanic to desk bound to cubby house builder extraordinaire!
Still a few finishing up jobs to go, like the roof - and then my job of 'fitting out' this monster play area for the kids with curtains, bunting, table and chairs and a kitchen according to Miss M!
More progress pics to come as Miss M & I make a decision on the curtain fabrics . . .
