this weeks babysitting


This is this weeks babysitting effort - isnt she cute?????
And just loved me spinning her around on the puter chair

sshh you will wake the baby


This is what Nannas do when they are babysitting - Aimee is doing an aged care course in Cohuna so I get to babysit each Wednesday
So.....last week Mia slept for 3 1/2 hours - yes you read that right - so I did the "right thing" and whipped up Aimee a tablecloth for her table - and called it "Sshhh you'll wake the baby"

which jane austen character are you

I am Marianne Dashwood!


Take the Quiz here!


You are Marianne Dashwood of Sense & Sensibility! You are impulsive, romantic, impatient, and perhaps a bit too brutally honest. You enjoy romantic poetry and novels, and play the pianoforte beautifully. To boot, your singing voice is captivating. You feel deeply, and love passionately

dear jane rejigged


For those regular readers of my blog you will know that I am slowly working on a dear jane quilt - we I DID have three rows joined together but I wasnt happy with them.
BUT
I looked at Bonnie Hunters website www.quiltville.com and saw her storm at sea setting - and fell in love with it
sooooooooooo
lots of unpicking and rejigging and I have two rows back together - not as wide as last time - I am going to make a "smaller" jane - 8 x 8

report for Jasmine


My best girlie friend Jasmine (MBGF) brought her new bloke Andrew up to meet us all last weekend and for us to "Check Him Out" - here is the report on him....LOL
Gary
- "he is quite nice....easy to talk to....and fitted in easily....likes a bloke that can carry his own conversation and not have to be "looked after" all the time. Thought you two looked very happy together and comfortable in each others company. Dont think he understand about the "can I keep him" tho.... Oh!!! and he said "why did Jasmine bring you MORE scraps - arent you getting rid of yours" - my answer " of course Im getting rid of mine to make room for Jasmines!!!!!!"
Megan
- they were very lovely dovey and Jasmine is fun she REALLY looked at my scrapbooking stuff and I dont know why she didnt like the colours I picked for you Mum
Sarah
- hes very nice!!!!!
Me (lastly and most importantly!!!!)
- he is lovely - yes you do spark together and have that "look" very impressed that he went up to the shed with gary so we could have girly time...and he didnt worry too much about the interrogation (was he expecting it??????)

sisters choice - DONE!!!!


Hooray!!!
This is really a "free" quilt - made from the scraps left over from my "Magnifique" quilt - all lovely yuwa prints etc and too nice to just toss out

postcards


Here is a photo of two postcards I made for the Stashbusters group Winter wonderland postcard swap - they both went to America.
My first attempt at this so crossing fingers that they are ok and "acceptable".

Climbing Jacobs Ladder


Another one finished!!!!
This is a disappearing nine patch made from a pack of fabrics from the climbing jacobs ladder fabric range - lovely and bright and funky.
I gave it to our next door neighbours Ron and Myra who are heading up to Central Australia next Tuesday to relieve a couple that are pastoring there. They will be away for at least two months - hopefully this quilt might keep them warm on a cold night.
