More toddler craft

Today’s effort was a “pram” for Pooh Bear:   Made from a 3-litre milk container, the boy thinks this is just fantastic, and loves taking Pooh for walks. It took about 3 minutes to make, and has provided at least 30 minutes of entertainment. And if he’s sick of it tomorrow, it can go back in the recycling bin from […]

Soaking up some sun…

and doing some drawing.   I dusted off the old sketch book & pastel set this morning, and enjoyed a few moments in the sun while the toddler had a blast in the sandpit. The weather has been so lovely lately, nice mild days, and as long as the wind stays away, sitting in the sun is the best place […]

Toddler Craft

Is so much fun! Last week, we made a cash register: This was a huge hit, and now lives in the bottom drawer of our kitchen for easy access. It’s not really visible in the photo, but on the right hand side I have taped a ruler, as in the toddler’s world, the only way of paying for things is […]

Altered notebook.

I was hoping to get some more sewing done yesterday, but my husband was home sick, and he went down for a nap at the same time our son did. Unfortunately for my, our bedroom is right next to my studio (as in, there is a door between the two), so I didn’t want to make too much noise, lest […]

6 blocks down!

Well, I’ve had a productive weekend. We’ve made our son a sandpit, and I finally got around to cleaning my office out & turning it into (mainly) my studio. And with my own creative space, inspiration has hit, hard. Expect to see lots of new stuff in the next few weeks!   My Jacob’s Ladder quilt is progressing nicely, I […]

Laughs, Life & Creativity

Something doing the rounds at the minute that gave me a laugh:   63 As a 1930s wife, I am Superior Take the test! How they came up with that I’ll never know!! ~~~ I’ve also had a chance to do some scrapping!     ~~~ Another project I have in my mind is an abstract painting, possibly with a […]

Sick Bubba…

Poor Little Bear has been sick the last few days, so no sewing or scrapping to be shown at the minute. I did, however, get a chance to do some baking today. Very simple, but oh so yummy! I love these bikkies, they are made from my great-grandmother’s recipe, and remind me of a time when I wasn’t so grown-up, […]

Stage Two!

24 hours on, and the fabric is cut!   One’s missing you say? After making up a mock-block to test the colour scheme, I wasn’t happy with the cream & blue fabric. The other fabrics are so rich that it looks stark, and very jarring when added into the block. So I’ll put that fabric away for another project, and […]

Jacob’s Ladder Quilt – The Fabrics

I’ve been shopping! Aren’t they yummy?!! The dark blue will be one triangle, and I am trying to decide whether to use the yellow, or the cream & blue for the other triangle. I’m about to cut the peices for one block, and see what they look like made up, then decide!   ~~~   On the curtain front, they […]
