new errr stuff!

these were given to me today, by DH and the girls...
aren't they great...
been wanting the bottom one for ages...
got it at a great price too!

and made this banner for Christmas a couple of others that are almost finished...
($25 + $3 PH if anyones interested)

thought they might go well at the market next weekend.

Tomorrow I'm off to AQM (first time)
and I'm excited! even if the rest of the clan that will be coming with me aren't....

unlucky I say....

get over it...cos it's something I need to do, if I'm going to stay in this game....

so I may see a few there....I'll pop by and HI if I don't get too shy....

another weekend bites the dust

well another weekend has bitten the dust...

what mixed weather we have had, yesterday it absolutely bucketed down ALL DAY!
today is just a lovely Spring day...not overly warm, but sunny...
got out in the garden, trimmed all the roses ready for another flowering...
trimmed a few bushes that had shot up over the last few weeks...
fixed DH up...after he managed to cut his leg with the chainsaw!
just a deep gash...very lucky..

finished my SSCS, it's packed, wrapped, labelled and ready to post tomorrow...
Woo Hoo!

Made a banner for Christmas (that's it in the header)
found all of my old Christmas fabric and planning a few more for the market in 2 weeks..

Managed to talk DH into coming with me to AQM in Melbourne next weekend!!!!
Have decided if I'm going to be doing designing and trying to sell my stuff I need to see what the professionals are I would like to have a stall there next year.....big plans afoot.

this weekend

I've been hitting the books again!
yes that's right...more study.
this is only half the pile...the others haven't arrived yet,
this should keep me out of mischief for a while I think!

I have managed some sewing...
finished up my runner (like the one I made Sandi in our friends swap )

this one is more heavily quilted...thought I would see how it looked...

added some more hexies to the tally also...
check out the hexie progress page

market update and 300!

well the market has been and gone again.
weather was a bit errrr...funny,
hot, cold, humid, threatening clouds, few spits of rain
we got it all...
not too bad a day...
although there was heaps of other things on around the place...
the other 'big' market,
a nearby car rally,
the Whittlesea show,
get the idea?

it was fun, sold a bit, now to get ready for the next one!

Now onto the 300 bit....
that's 300 posts...
seems like just yesterday I started this blog...
what fun, new friends, lots of inspiration, great swaps, new ideas...

ever a dull moment!

hope there's another 300 to come...

my swap item for SSCS is almost finished...I'm excited!
My friend Ash tells me there are 47 days until Christmas....
OMG I had better get a move on.....
see ya
