Party plans

Whipped up a card for my sweet girl today. It's her birthday tomorrow. It feels like it's come up so fast and I'm sort of in a mad scramble to get everything done. I've got a to do list a mile long....and it's only getting longer.
I ordered some ring shells to make the girls personalised rings to put in their loot bags. It's turning into a bit of a disaster.

They started off ok but by the time the glaze dried on top you could barely make out the letter. So I'm redoing them in black. It's a last ditch effort. I might have to bin them if the don't turn out. I'm getting over them quickly.
Well - I better get back to it. Got a house to clean and cakes to bake.

Have a Happy Thursday

So disappointed

I was so disappointed that I couldn't attend my quilting class yesterday. My fabric still hasn't arrived yet. The next one is in July so I'll have to wait until then.
In the meantime it's nearly time for my babies birthdays. My little sweetness is having a party so I whipped these up using a House of 3 kit. They were so easy and the girls loved them.
Now I want to make rings for the loot bags - I just have to hope they arrive in time.

We've got a holiday tomorrow so I'm cooking up a spiced pumpkin & lentil soup for dinner. It's certainly cold enough for it. It's from one of my new Bill Granger cookbooks. Love him. Love his recipes.

And this little man has been my lap buddy most days. I don't know how he manages to fit on there as he is quite a bit bigger than my lap. But he does. And I don't mind - it keeps me warm too.

Well that's it from me. Need to have a hot shower and get into some warm jammies. It's super chilly,

It's here! It's here! It's here!!

As of about 4 minutes ago, my fabric order came.All from here. Well part of it. I hope the rest doesn't take too long. Or get lost in the post. Argggh - go away bad thoughts!!

The plain charcoal is what I'm using for the backing. And River Rock is one of the designs for the front. I decided on 5 patterns for the front. Not sure what the proper amount is to use.
Anyway - I am so excited to get playing. Only ten days to go - not that I'm counting or anything. lol!
Hopefully I'll be back tomorrow with the rest of it.
Have a happy Thursday

The mess on my desk

On my desk today -
Leftovers of Lawn Party
My diary - scribbling in the dates for this class
Coffee cup (empty. Where's my hubby when I need him?)
And this cookbook - making burritos from it tonight. They are absolutely delicious! If I had to pick a chef to cook my last meal - it would be Bill Granger.
And yes the light in my scraproom is this bad. I have a poxy little lamp to scrap by. And this is only 4:30 in the arvo.
 I'll be blind by the time we move out of here!!
