Nice weather for ducks...



Yeah, I need a new project like a hole in the head but since finishing up the Daisy Chain Sampler my brain has been going into overdrive for another embroidery project.


I absolutely adore this print by Leanda at onelittlebird studio and its been the driving inspiration behind this little design Ive drawn up.  We'll see how it stitches up...


Hows this rain?



My poor little kidlets will be like drowned rats when they get home from their first day back at school!

Starts, finishes and everything in between...


I finished my sampler!  Its been going on for a while but i finished it off last night and i really love how it turned out.  Im taking Shays advice and putting it in a frame...


Not a lot of sewing happening around here...what with school holidays etc... but i have managed to stash  a few piles of pretty fabrics (and a lovely book with lots of projects i want to make! )...


These will be used in my + and x quilt


and these too, im thinking of using the kona solid (in pond) for a big border around the outside


still got heaps more blocks to make!...


Kids go back to school on Tuesday, its been fun but im looking forward to it! 


 The youngest will be in school full time this year so Ive decided to go back to school as well.  Just part time but it will be pretty full on I think, so i probably wont be blogging or crafting as much as i would like. : ( (Not much different to how Ive been these last few months! )  Im really looking forward to using my brain again!

Hope you are having a great weekend!
