I am home from Sydney! Spent Friday catching up with kids school work, washing, cleaning, Cate had her dancing lesson, then cooked dinner, kids hair washing...back into full mummy mode = no time for the computer!
The kids are thrilled to have me back (i.e. get presents) as was Little Cat who did not seem to enjoy the "Rein of Bob"; Muffin did not want to know me, cross that I left him, but since yesterday afternoon he has not left my side, he's sitting on a chair next to me now.
Ingrid and I did some great kids clothes shopping in the City on Monday, we got Cate and Lottie matching Country Road cardis, and Ingrid talked me into buying a pink Mambo bunny top for Cate to wear at Easter. We also went to Kinokuniya however all we left with was a $10 Pokemon Book for Oliver!
My fave shop was the Remnant Warehouse, the staff were so nice and friendly and the fabric very yum. I got some Blossom Urban Chics fabric (to go with the Jelly Roll I already have), 6 Prints Charming FQ's and a Moda Nursery Rhyme FQ pack. Also a 2 metre remnant of a mottled green backing fabric (perfect for some of my Christmas projects)Story Time and Nursery Rhyme by Moda, ideal for a future teddy / doll quilt swap.Material Obsession, I wasn't feeling very well on Tuesday so I never got to enjoy the store but I had to buy something so I selected a precut 1 metre piece to make a poofay from. Craft Depot, many thanks to Cass for taking us there; I found this delightful red, blue and pink floral print; I got a half metre of 12 fabrics to use on a quilt for the lounge room. Plus some various 20cm strips ideal for my Dear Jane and various applique projects. I had a fantastic time, Sydney has such great shopping, I have added another 4 quilting projects to my list, I am overwhelmed with choice and do not know what project to start on next!
