Last day of freedom

Today is officially my last day of holidays, despite numerous trips
to school and hours at home doing 'stuff'.

I haven't blogged over the break - it has been nice just doing.

Here are some pics of what I have been doing:

We've had some lovely family time together this year with all
of us being on a break at the same time - very rare (usually Greg's holidays 
are mid-term and he just potters around).

Now it's over and back to the grind of running around for work and kids
and after school activities, trying to squeeze some sewing in!

Family Time

We're off for a few days together to the beach.

The weather forecast isn't favorable but I don't think the kids will care.

I finished my new Shore Bag (Tiny Seamstress pattern) for our towels.

Then someone complained because it didn't put him in the photo...

And then the teenager said "We haven't finished my bag"...

It is a very simple pattern and the material
she chose is covered in moustaches. For some reason
she has a thing for them...

And then there is the goofy shot
because when you are 13 and cute you can get away with it.

Look out Warrnambool - here we come!

Long time...

No blogging.

Well sometimes that happens - it's life and at times there are just not enough hours in the day to achieve everything you would like to.

Enough said.

End of school - finally.
Christmas - been and gone.
New Year - been and gone.

What have I been up to...

buying fabrics, buying books, hair cuts (yikes), hospital, medals,
awards ceremonies, a new bag for a teenager and saying goodbye to our
family home of 10 years.

presents I sent to 2 of my friends - Sharon has reported that her
daughter is able to fit into the beach bag...not sure that is a good thing.

Gifts I sent Simone as part of our Santa swap -
snowman thread holder, mini heat pack, zippered pouch,
flour sack tea towel, chocolate, table topper,
sack/bag and fat quarters.threads.

My gifts from Simone - I was so very very spoilt!
Thank you Simone!
There may or may not have been chocolates included...someone
may or may not have eaten them prior to the photos...

My last gifts from Sharon as part of our swap with Mrs Martin -
a table topper and a cover for my Go-cutter.

Phew - I think that's it apart from a gift from Shez - I don't have photos
but the hand towel is perfect!
For once nobody is stealing it!!

I need a holiday at the beach now...
