This & That...

The last few days have been great... finished the secret sewing I was doing for FNWF the other week... ordered some fabric that I can't wait to sew with. (as if I have nothing here already!)... got started & made great progress with my CTTY item for this month.


There was also a totally delicious cake in honour of my two darling girls turning t-w-e-n-t-y...
heavens I can hardly think of how these years have zoomed by!
 We have another car in the family now - purchased late last week by one of my girls - a cute little red (2nd hand) Hyundai Getz.
Methinks we need to take up some front lawn & create more parking, the driveway is full!

A few weeks back I was browsing in a newsagent, & set eyes on a new-to-me magazine called "Down Under Quilts"... no doubt some of you are familiar with it... it's an Australian publication & wow there are some great projects in there... I'm totally loving the Churn Dash quilt done in purples! The quilts are fresh & modern... and it's great to read about Australian designers & events.

Don't forget to have a look at the Travelling Treasures here, & leave me a Comment on that post if you would like to receive it - I'll be drawing a name on the 20th.

Now it's time to make a cuppa & head into the Sewing Space for a bit of sewing... but before I go, here's a pic of the Site Manager with his cute little jacket on... he seems to have adjusted to his short hair now & won't be needing the jacket much anyway, now that the warmer weather is here.

Sorry, one last thing... does anyone know what has become of 'One Flower Wednesday'? Hosted by Karen over at Journey of a Quilter. I plan to start making hexagon flowers again, & went to look for the weekly linky, but it looks like she's stopped blogging... she's not replied to my email either.
Weekly linky or not, I will start making flowers anyway, but I'm just curious to know what's happened to OFW...

I want a piece of that cake!!!! Your site manager is quite adorable. I'm not sure what happened to Karen. I haven't done any hexies for awhile. I hope someone knows about her.

I'm liking the look of your project coming together, I love the colours.
I'm sure the site manager wont be wearing that jacket today, its getting yucky and warmer now isn't it, 34 today!
