Quick One Patch

Titled Lakeside Charm, the name doesn't really suit this bright pretty quilt, so I shall just call it the Quick One Patch! The pattern is from McCalls Quick Quilts June 08, I borrowed this magazine from Helen. I have the same fabric's used in the quilt, designed by Prints Charming, so I am hoping the quilt turns out somewhat like the picture. I don't have as many squares, so will be making it little lap size of 12 in the centre, 14 down the side and 4 in the corners, my squares are a little bigger being cut at 4.5". This fabric is so soft and cuddly, perfect for a 2 or 4 legged friend!

Give Away / Pay It Forward

I won a Pay It Forward from Selina's blog! You all know the drill, leave your name below and tell me your fave fabric range. My faves are The Hamptons, Vintage Holiday and Andalucia. Will have the kids randomly draw 3 names on March 1st (Sunday), you need not do a PIF yourself. Good Luck!

Back to school!!

Hallelujah, they went back to school today!! It's always hot the first week back, today was a crazy 38 degrees. Thankfully the class rooms are air conditioned, and when its over 32 they get to have recess and lunch indoors where they can play boardgames with there classmates. Oliver is now in year 4 (OMG how did that happen??) Stuart has gone into year 3 And Cate is in year 1 (sob) They look all squinty from the sun, can't really see why, it was so cloudy and humid, a really blerk day wether wise.
