Update #2 – Quilty Progress

Hello Wednesday! I normally love Wednesdays, but today, I just wish I could hide under the doona & pretend I can ignore the world until it’s Thursday. Today involves immunisations for baby, and a dentist appointment for me, that I suspect will end with a bill that hurts almost as much as the root canal I’m expecting to be told […]

Ack. Internet died. Not good. But on the upside, my house is clean, I’ve read three books, done a couple of paintings, and am more than halfway through my d9p quilt! I’ll be back with photos and info when I’m a bit more up-to-date!

Houston, we have a quilt!

  Well, not a quilt, but it’s getting there! I’ve got almost all the fabric for Baby Bear’s cot quilt cut (I need to go buy some more of the red, fingers crossed my LQS has some left!). If it looks familiar, that’s because it’s the same fabric as Bear’s Jacobs Ladder quilt. I’m hoping to swing a bit of […]

It’s raining, it’s pouring…

I wish the boy was snoring. Monday nap time, and toddler boy has decided sleep is for the weak. We’ve had tantrum, potty stop, tantrum, extra lunch, tantrum, and now merrily chatting away to Pooh Bear. Knowing my luck, he’ll fall asleep just in time for baby boy to wake up. *sigh*. Last week, we made some bath fizzers. I’m […]

Not again…

The toddler is snotty. Again. He’s feeling a bit better today, and just when I thought baby might be safe this time, he’s woken up all clogged up this morning too. Sigh. Even when sick, Bear is quite an active little bloke, so in an effort to get him to lay quietly & try to recuperate (and not aggravate his […]

Can I give up yet?

How far does one have to be into a book before deciding to give up? My current reading selection is quite hard going, and I’m not sure if I can be bothered finishing. Nothing against the book itself, it just has a very different writing style to what I’m used to, and since I mainly read when in bed, I […]
