I could just eat her too!

I thought if I'm going to show off L's freckles, I should show you all D's hair too!

When I was little I really REALLY wanted 2 things for my self: Curly, Red hair! Unfortunately I was cursed with thick, straight mousy brown hair! ( well at least that is what it is in photo's when I was little! Can't remember back that far back!)
So K (dd1) was a baldy that turned blond, then along came M (dd2) and had the most gorgeous red hair when it finally grew! ( all my kids were almost bald til the were 2) but she now covers it in dark brown hair dye!
Then along came D (dd3) and once her hair started growing this is what it turned into ( see pic above). Now that's what I wanted!!
At 13 we're not always seeing eye to eye, but she is a great kid! Smart (like her Mummy!), pretty (once again like her Mummy!) and sometimes loud ( definitely from her Daddy!)
each time we had another baby, we were blessed with a perfect little girl, but after D I think God believed we had enough female perfection. There was no way he could top that!

I could just eat him!

This little boys face makes me smile on a daily basis!

every time I see those freckles it makes me want to eat him up!
At the moment he is at an age where it is still ok to snuggle up to mum in public and I'm enjoying every minute of it, as I know it won't last much longer.
L, when I was thinking of having a little baby boy, I would not have believed that I would be blessed with one as perfect as you!

Oh and tell me L, did you sneeze in the Milo tin again? the proof is all over your face!

We're Home!

We went for the weekend to Apolo Bay, for my Brother in Law C's 40th birthday and of course the music festival!

We were booked in with inlaws K and R in a lovely little cottage in town for the weekend. There the party go-ers prepared for the Party of the year! C had a dress-up as someone from the movie Conan the Barberian. I stayed at the cottage with D and L as it was a no-kids allowed party (and from what I heard it was a good thing too! lots of drunken debauchery going on, as is befitting of Barberians!)
We spend the days walking around Apolo Bay, soaking in all the lovely music and cups of coffee

Look at the picture above!! Do you see it?? Are you as excited as I am?? We had a full 10 seconds of RAIN!!!

I took a picture just so I could show you all!!

I woke up from a nap on the couch thinking what the heck is that noise?? (we have a tin roof) I looked outside and saw the rain! So quick as a flash I was outside with my trusty old camera, so I could share the happy occasion!
And in the 5 seconds it took me to decide to get nekkid and do a rain dance, it stopped!
Whoops, maybe the fact that I was going to do that scared the rain away!

Busy Busy Times

Again a long time between drinks! But we've been rather busy in our dry little corner of this great land called Aus.

After several trips to Bendigo, with M moving there and looking for jobs and all. I'm not wanting to go back again in the near future!

Oh before I forget, I've got myself some spiffy glasses (will show photo as soon as I get J to handle the camera for me) I think I look even more smart then before!!

Also busy sewing bunnies and easter egss!

I just love the Easter Eggs! They turned out lovely! I made them from a Vintage Tablecloth I had. it was just past any use as tablecloth, but too nice to throw out! And Then Brainwave (see?? I do have one! you need a brain to have a brain wave!) Why not use it for crafting? You can just cut the holy bits out!

Easter is on its way!!!

After a trip to the supermarket full of Easter Eggs and hot cross buns yesterday I was bitten by the Easter decorating bug and went looking for my bunny patterns in my newly clean sewing room ( and so easy to find now!! ) So I've managed to sew up 1 cute wool hare from a Chestnut Junction pattern, and am preparing to work on a few more things!

I knew I would use that old wool pants one day lol

Got some styrofoam eggs I'm planning on covering with some ripped fabric strips!

The things you can do while dh is gone for a few days! He's in Wittlesea for 5 days with his work. Meanwhile I'm sewing up a stormwhile the kids watch Jurrasic Park

It's Saturday again already! We're having a nice quiet weekend at home! With hubby going away working for 5 days straight we all decided quiet is good! Of course I did manage to visit the opshop in town and score a few nice things! I even manage to find a lovely woolen skirt and a pair of wool pants as well, just as I was planning on sewing a bunny from a Chestnut Junction pattern. Now the dilema is, am I going to make a plain grey Bunny or a checkered one?

As I was leaving the shop I
discovered a sweet box covered with fabric! As a Prim Girl I couldn't leave with out it of course! as soon as I got home it got a make-over

Doesn't it look darling??

I actually went to the op-shop because when I went for a walk a few nights back I spied 3 little Pineapple bowls, that I just had to have! because of all kinds of reasons I didn't make it into the shop until today! And I'm happy to say I've got my 3 little pineapple bowls! Now what am I gonna do with them?? Not sure yet, but it will come to me lol
The 2 wooden Candle sticks are in the freezer at the moment because ther is some wax on it that needs to come off before we can sand it down and paint it

Thank goodness we have a long weekend here! I've got some crafting to do!!

The Sheep are BAAAACK!!

Well the sheep are back next door! I can for see many early mornings chasing them back next door, after they have been nibbling on my very spares garden!

>The sheep get put in the yard of the house next door to us, to keep the grass down ( have a good look and answer me this: what grass?) Lucky for them they have a very lovely, pretty lady (ok I'll take the guess work out of that: it's me!!!) who throws them some carrots and lettuce over the fence! ( ok she does have an ulteriour motive: if they like me enough they may let me give them a wee haircut some day!! LoL)

Work Spaces

Finally I got going cleaning my sewing/craft room!
And as long as I don't turn around and look at the computer area, I'm inpressed with my self! LOL

And I've found things I had thought long lost in the last several house moves we had! Of because of that the Old UFO pile has grown a wee bit too! I was going by the "If you can't see it, it isn't an UFO" rule!

On the Up side though, I did manage to finish off 1 UFO after finding it hiden in the back of the shelves. And what is gonna impress all of my friends is: it only took me 2 years to finish this little quilt top!!! I'm aiming to get it all done by Monday evening!!

Be impressed, be very impressed:

2 years of work here! (ok I had a LOOOOONG break from this!) I did have to embroider 2 blocks again as some how 2 went walk-about!

Sewing too much?

While visiting with friends, someone asked my friend during a conversation about sewing, does Jazy sew much??
Her answer?? No not much, only on days ending in Y

Does she know me or what??

Brought to you by the letter S

I thought I'd get my self blogging again by doing a list of the day for Prim Things I like!

So here is Sundays list:

  • Sweet Annie, I just love the look of it!

  • Snowmen.

I probably love these so much because they remind me of winters at home in Holland! Just doesn't get that cold around here!

  • Santa Collection

I love my Santa collection! Which began 20y ago and I've been buying 1 every year! In the last 2 years I've decided to only buy Heartwood Creek Santas

See you all with tomorrows list, brought to you by the letter M (do you see the pattern?? LoL)
