Yes I dont quilt but buy fabric , and since I have so much fabric i thought I better make a quilt or 2 . Mads is at the quilter as I write this , Seb is at the soccer tonight with his dad so off on a stitching frenzy I went. I don't want him to see it, I got the Man U fabric from the UK , and has other things he likes - soccer - did you know he likes soccer :-) , batman, Star Wars, dogs, soccer ... And I put in a sneaky cupcake square ..mums obsession lol Off to get backing fabric Monday , then to the quilter on Saturday I hope.
Monday is Mads 15th birthday..where did the years go ... Lee-Ann xx
Well our GTG is over again....but only till November when we have another one.
The girls...Helen Coral & Lissy spoilt me, they provided all the meals..and OMG they outdid themselves.. Beautiful soup, casserole, chicken pies sticky date puddings..cakes and cupcakes..we didn't starve lol
It was a very relaxing weekend, where I was bossed about and waited on, and spent all but maybe 2 hours in my PJ's... Under instructions I'm nt to,do a thing.
We did stitch...and Lissy had 2 finishes ... Woo hoo a miracle for us. :-)
Beautiful flowers from the 3 most beautiful friends ever a girl could want xxx
Cupcakes supplied by Coral, white choc & raspberry ...
Helen's sticky date decorated quite fancy...
Corals gift to us..a mug that has this cute cover with pockets in and around it
It's sitting on my stitching table already in use...
This year has had more downs that ups... I was hoping that would change.. And I thinking it had... But a little minor visit to the hospital last Monday to have a full hysterectomy, put a slight spanner in the works. :-)
What I thought was a simple visit to the doctor and a pill later ... Turned into this... it all snowballed in a good way. I would never have known my health could have been in danger with my insides as messy as they were.
So it's a good thing..
I'm home now - its saturday after the operation Monday , all went well, well as well could be when the surgeon went in and found "a mess" his words ...
I'm good, there is pain and discomfort but I'm ok...
And was spoilt with these...and a wonderful surprise visit from 2 very BFF's Coral & Helen, unfortunately Lissy had to work.
But 1 more week till our 2013 GTG .. where I don't think much will be happening.
Nothing much has been happening except I survived the employee reduction at work.. 5 in my department left, turn up one morning, gone that afternoon..not a good day for all...but I'm thankful I still have my job.
Kids are doing well, Seb is now officially taller than me :-) Mad is still not seeing her dad, so we spend a lot of time together. I would never complain as I think it has brought is closer together...
I'm still going to Cross Fit twice a week now, can feel it in my clothes, but the scales are moving that number down :-(
Stitching wise... I'm in a funk..haven't stitched since Easter.. But that hasn't stopped me from buying.
The fab 4... Here we are after out last sat GTG in Melbourne
Coral, Lissy, Helen and me..
Decided one night we will so a SAL -( stitch along ) doing flower power.... What were we the thinking?? I must have had an extra sugar in my hot choc giving me a sugar high...lol
This is the fabric from crossed wing collection, dyed especially for it.
It's beautiful and HUGE !!!
That little pink spot...that's a plastic bobbin wound with thread...
I also had a chart - Token of Love I got with a gift voucher the kids gave me for Christmas , I was going to stitch it in red ..but I originally wanted purple..changed my mind and regretted it. I then saw it done in purple , so I splurged and got the purple thread...
But have I started stitching..no . I still have my LHN Christmas cottages to stitch on my afghan... I've done 1/2 of 1.
I haven't even read a whole book. I got the kindle , downloaded heaps of books, and started reading 1, but haven't got into that either.
Need to get out the funk I'm in...
Any suggestions out there??
Oh and I went and got my top of my ear pierced...with a NEEDLE ...OMG what was I thinking?? It hurt like %##}^£, it's ok now..when I don't knock, touch or catch it...lol
