Time, time, time....

Well...I'm not too good at popping things in this blog too often.  Maybe I'll get better...but life just seems to move very quickly.  Monday turns into Friday in a flash.  And it seems the only time I get around to writing a post is when I should be in bed.  Some fine-tuning required! 

I started off doing the lovely Amitie Block-of-the-Month with gusto way back in June. 

I have now met with some procrastination & the more recent months are being neglected.  I have been doing this all by hand which is beautifully meditative but a little slow.
However I must get on with it because when on holidays in Melbourne earlier this year I had a sneak peak of the next Amitie BOM and it looks very nice.  Lots more come.

I'm going to the Kino craft fair today to while away my time looking through Japanese craft books and to say hi to Amy.  What a great way to spend a Saturday arvo!

We love bags!

I have a 9 year old daughter who seems to have lots of friends.  Who have birthdays.  So I've started making bags for them (after some initial help from KT!).  If I'm particularly tardy with them I like to add a bit of Audrey sweetness (love these books!)  Bronte thinks bags are a bit old hat now- what should I do next?!

I suppose I could at least branch out and do a different style!!

Faceless & Nameless....

Sometimes we can all feel a bit like that. 
However we must remember that tomorrow is another day and  it is a transient state of affairs.

This little boy was made from Jodie's pattern after much encouragement (read hassling) by my eldest daughter in the school holidays.  Unfortunately he has been faceless & nameless for more than a day but there are plans ahead...

(And he is loved already in any case)
