The Aussie WIP Wednesday

A month or so back, a little offer popped up in my Facebook feed.Get $10 off any order over $25 at Suzy Hausfrau. I’m pretty sure the speed with which I hit “get offer” would have broken land speed records. Then of course, the problem was what to get. I fell down the rabbit hole of pretty yarn, and my […]

The Aussie WIP Wednesday

On the work table this week is a dress for Miss Butterfly to wear to a wedding next month. I’m using the Oliver + S Garden Party dress pattern, with a few small changes, and I have to say, I’m loving how it’s coming together. What are you making this week? ~~~ Have you been creating something this week? Link […]

The Aussie WIP Wednesday

  I’m in full on catchup mode around here, when it comes to Project Life – March is (finally) finished, April is maybe 1/3 done and I’m busting to get it finished before 41 photos from May arrive from the lab in Melbourne later this week. I’m still trying to find my groove for 2014, but I do think I’m […]

The Aussie WIP Wednesday

My crafting time this week has been pretty focused. I had a project in mind and powered through to get it done. Which means most of my WIPs have been ignored…making it the perfect time to add a new quilt to list, don’t you think? I was going to use this layer cake for Beetle’s capsule quilt, but in the […]

The Aussie WIP Wednesday

One of my favourite things that’s quickly coming out of running the Aussie WIP Wednesday is that it’s giving me a good kick to actually DO something on my WIPs so I have something to show you! Yesterday, with the big children off to nanny and poppy’s for a sleepover, and the grumpy baby tucked up in bed asleep, I […]

WIP Wednesday {+linky}

When we came home from camp, Kylie issued a challenge – to work on our camp projects for 15 minutes a day. That fifteen minutes has seen my ripple blanket grow slowly, and as I sat down to do some more yesterday with the children while they were unwell, I came to the very exciting realisation, that I’m at the […]

Bloggers Boogie :: just chillin’

It’s Saturday. It’s a miserable, overcast, cool kind of day – just the kind that does a fabulous job of reminding us that today is, in fact, the first day of winter. The boys have had a fab morning of playing Lego, and spreading it all over the toy room, Butterfly has been happily changing outfits every five seconds and […]

Bloggers Boogie :: and we’re back!

HOW IT WORKS: Blog up to five songs between Saturday lunchtime and Sunday lunchtime in your local timezone. Any theme. Any reason. Doesn’t matter. You decide. Or if you have done a music post during the week, that’s ok too, join the party as well! Come back and leave a comment to join the fun, or give this linky a […]

13 in ’13 :: reading challenge

It seems, after a #reverb12 prompt asked about out favourite books, that I’m not the only one disappointed about the lack of reading this past year. I thought about how the 50/50 challenge motivated me to read more than I normally would. And so I propose, a 13/13, 13 books in twenty13, challenge. Read 13 books, of the no-pictures-not-for-small-people variety, […]
