Free BOM I found.

6:14 PM Edit This 2 Comments »

I found this lovely free mystery BOM on Simone's blog. You can look at it here. It is designed by a lady named Esther Aliu. She has designed it to be done in reds and creams and to be used as a stash buster. I'm not sure what colourway I am planning on uusing yet. The first block looks lovely. I am going to try and make it and try and keep up each month as the next part of the pattern is released.
I'm off to try out Yoga tomorrow. I have always wanted to try Yoga and I think it will be very beneficial in destressing me and making me more flexible. I hope I will be able to move afterwards.

Blog Award

9:26 PM Edit This 0 Comments »

I forgot yesterday when I updated this blog that the lovely Katie Howard had nominated me for a blog award. I feel very honoured. So to receive the award I have to nominate five people, so here goes:-
Niss - you know that I also love seeing what creative exploit you are up to

Ronnie - Your scrapbooking layouts are just fantastic

Sandra - You are such a creative soul and a lovely person to boot.

Dot - you are the reason I got back into fabric crafts....your work is just gorgeous

Sorry I could only think of four people....bit late in the day for me.

So now people who have won an award are able to put this award on their blog, nominate 5 people to receive an award and the links to their blogs and also a link to my blog. You also need to leave a message on their blogs that they have been nominated for this award.

Big Blog Update

7:34 PM Posted In , Edit This 2 Comments »
Well it has been a while since I updated this blog and I have a bit to share with you. First up is that I have finally finished my university course. I got my results to day and am so happy as I got 3 High Distinctions and 1 Credit. It is such a nice feeling to have it finally over and I can now spend more time playing with all my craft supplies.

A few weeks ago I attended my 20yr Highschool reunion in Wauchope, NSW. It's hard to believe that it has been 20 years since I was at school....I don't feel that old. It was a tradition in our school that when you reach yr 11 the form had to adopt a name and it was used in sporting matches against the grade 12's, fun days etc. After being cooped up for ages in a hot school hall (no air conditioning in those days), we decided to name ourselves the 'Yoghurt Blowflies', a name we wore with pride as we defeated the 'Limespiders' in various events.

Here's a photo of the girls, Julie, me, Kirrily, Kylie, Melissa (Biddle) and Lisa in the front.

Here is our class photo. It was a great night and most of the gang I hung around with came.

Now on the craft front I have been working on a new doll. Her name is Babette. She is all hand embroidered and has beading and button detailing. I have a few minor modifications and then will have her for sale in me etsy store. Let me know what you think of her.

My friend Niss has gone button fairy mad. Check out her blog here to have a look at what she's been making. I think they are so cute and inspired me to create a stitchery version of a button fairy.

I think she has turned out to be quiet cute and I had a lot of fun making her. I've drawn up a few designs version of her and plan to make some more.

Speaking of Niss, she is very fortunate to work in a thread and bead store. I popped in for a visit last week and they were having a sale. I stocked up on a whole heap of beads, threads, wool (I'm making a felted bag) and needle felting equipment (always have wanted to give it a go).

Here is the beads I bought. Don't they look yummy??? I can't wait to start creating with them. I have so many ideas in my head and things I want to try. My two weeks annual leave over christmas will largely be spent crafting. I have a heap of different things in various stages of production....some for christmas presents and some just because I want to make them. I am hoping to get them finished this week and then I will be able to share them with you then.

I'm off to bed now to do some reading. I started reading the Twilight series of books a couple of weeks ago and I am totally obsessed. I've nearly finished the third book in the series and can't wait to read the 4th. My son has also started reading it as well and is also enjoying it.

Until next time (hopefully it wont be as long as it took to write the last update),
