Really incredible

I got the movies back yesterday afternoon before I picked the kids up from school. I couldn't wait to get home and stick them in the dvd player.
They were fantastic. And look how little my baby girl was. I totally burst into tears. I miss those little people.
I pulled out my scrapbooks and there is absolutely no pages for the whole of 2000. I think that was when I didn't own a camera. Shocking!!
So I'm going to see if we can pull some pics off of the footage. I don't think they'll be very good quality.
But some is much better than none!
These movies are absolutely priceless. I only wish I'd been smart enough to tape more.
Feeling so very grateful that I have a little slice of our history. And it makes me more determined to start scrapping again.
Have a Happy week -

I can barely contain myself!

As I was looking in a bag the other day for something, I found a little pouch. Inside was 3 video tapes that I've been carting around from house to house for the past 11 years.
I went searching and found a guy to convert them - so now I'm waiting.
Waiting and hoping that they weren't damaged.
Because this will be from when my kids were 2 and 4. I can barely remember back that far.
I am so so excited to see what's on there!

What's going on?

In the past couple of weeks - I received some Fabric. Backing & binding for an upcoming quilt.

The chickies got some visitors in the shape of cockatoos.
And the ladies are still giving us an egg each a day - and the eggs are now getting bigger.
This is a before pic of my shelves. Before meaning before my daughter decided to rearrange them.
And the finished shelves. Nice job sweetpea.
I received some more fabric. Amy Butlers Lark. OMG. So totally divine. Love the colour palette. Still waiting on the other piece I ordered.
And I started on a new quilt yesterday. It has given me so many problems. And if you follow my twitter feed, you'd already know that I walked away from my desk, halfway through cutting, to get a cup of tea. And when I got back I picked up the quilting ruler the wrong way and cut all my fabric the wrong length. So now I am short on completing the quilt. I am an idiot!
So not wanting to be beaten, I worked my little tail off and now have a pile of blocks ready to go once I get some more fabric.
It was a very silly mistake that I hope to never repeat!

Hope you have a fabulous week.
I'm back to the kitchen to make some custard. Mmm!

Soul Blossoms - disappearing nine patch

I planned a date with my sewing machine today. Dropped the kids off at school, made a cuppa and went to it.
I ended up binding it with Amy Butler Laurel Dots in Periwinkle.

And here's how it turned out.
And the back is Temple Tulips in Azure.
I like how it turned out - I hope my Mum does too!

I've nearly had my fill of Soul Blossoms. Next to come - Lark It looks beautiful.

Have a great weekend,

The happiest kind of mail

I received one of my fabric orders today from Hawthorne Threads. So yummy.

I got these fabrics for the backing of my own quilt.
And I got these for the backing and binding of my Soul Blossoms quilt that I am making for my mum.

And I got these for another quilt that I am planning using the Amy Butler Love Collection.
I really need to finish one thing before I start another. So I think I'll possibly finish off mums before I attempt my own.
In other news - Mouse, Paper, Scissors is back with a new class MPS GIVE. I can't wait. I have loved all the previous MPS classes. And just in time for Christmas. Really really can't wait.

Hope you are having a Happy Tuesday -
