There have been lots of doings since I was last here…
Moo is in the US, thoroughly enjoying her travels and keeping in touch through her travel blog – it feels like we’re right there with her! She’s having a wonderful trip… it’s been in the planning for a long time and I can’t wait to hear all about it when she gets home. From LA to Vegas, San Francisco, across to New York, Washington, down to New Orleans, Memphis and now in Nashville before heading back to LA on Sunday, she’s done some mad stuff, some very brave stuff and some simply awesome stuff! Apart from Pig Crackers, she’s done it all on her own. So proud of our girl!
Blossie leaves on Monday morning to fly over and meet her in LA for the last two weeks of her holiday. I can’t imagine the fun they’ll have in Disneyland…. She’s so excited! She and her little furby ~ aka ninja cat ~ moved in with us last week and we just love having them around
That’s him on the roof of the shed, exploring. That’s why he’s an indoors cat!
Even Ratty is starting to get used to the idea :) Our quiet little house is much more like a home when there’s a kid or two hanging around
Waterboy had his birthday. This little dude who grew up with a permanent cheeky grin and adventurous spirit. Sitting here on his Nana’s knee with his sisters…
He’s all grown up now and has a little family of his own to love and cherish. There’s a lot of room in that big heart of his :)
When we look at the photos of the herbs when they were little we wonder ‘where did those years go!?’
Grown up kids make our world go round…
On the crafty front, July was a busy month with lots of new stuff happening. Christmas in July at Quilt Fabric Delights was a whole bunch of fun, games and great new projects… a lot of the projects have been released as patterns. If you pop over to Sarah’s site and scroll through a bit, you’ll find some gorgeous new patterns available for purchase
I’m making one of Gail’s designs (pardon the photo, it’s from my phone)
Gail’s original is done in redwork, I added the green and french blue to pick up the colours in the border fabrics (French General… of course :) and I’ll bind it with the plain faded red. It’s the cutest little design!
I’ve been busy in the quilting studio working on customer quilts so there’s not been a whole lot of new stuff happening in my crafty world. We’re heading off to Sydney on Monday morning for a couple of weeks and the quilty doings have been a priority
At the moment I’m working on the last one… for Judy… it’s gorgeous and full of feathery delights
and it will be finished tomorrow…
then I’ll start packing…
As if we didn’t already know it… cat’s really know how to sleep don’t they?!
Ratty’s always been a basket case
and Theo loves our sunny tv room in the afternoons – check it out, body on one footrest and head gently resting on the other
One more thing before I go…
‘It’s a little bit French’ range has been one of the most popular designs I’ve done to date. In keeping with the French theme ~ and still with a little bouquet of lavender ~ I have a simply romantic project in the September (pink) issue of Australian Homespun… I love it… and I can’t wait to see how the very clever stylists create the scene for my ‘Dream a little Dream’ project. It’s a bit different but just delicious!
I’ll be missing for a bit but I’ll have limited internet access so will update when I can
