Have not had time for  a lot of sewing and now I am on 2 weeks holiday there needs to be a whole lot of productivity. Too many UFO's.
To start with are these cute little easter bunnies.

Glorious rain!

What a nasty week it has been beginning with last Sunday when once again uncontrolled fires caused many problems. Homes and livestock have been lost and injured wildlife are now surfacing. My sister in law runs a wildlife rescue service and needless to say a lot of roos have been burnt. Here is the cheeky wallaby having a feed..

Finished the week with a little hand sewing while it was raining , not sure what they will be yet. It was just lovely to finally hear the rain pinging of the tin roof.

A new toy

I was considering buying the Brother Scan and Cut but not quite sure. A lovely 40% voucher from Spotlight and here it is.
May need to be an IT specialist to use it but am willing to give it a go. Oh the lovely things I can cut for applique. I should mention my decision was also influenced by my lovely husband whose exact words were "If you want it go and get it before they sell out". No second invitations needed.

Quick project for a lazy Sunday

Way too hot to work outside today so perfect inside with the ducted cooling. A few repairs before they get out of hand and then onto a cute bear in basketball shorts and singlet.

A  quick trip to Spotlight for some lace and........... 13 mtrs of material. It was on special.

Not sure what I will make with these panels but way too pretty to leave behind. Probably didn't need all 9 but it was the end of the bolt.

Back to School we go.

Well school has commenced and holidays for me are at an end. It has been extremely hot and sewing at a standstill except for 2 Diary covers. A new project is in the drawing stages but I am still fiddling with EQ7. Not an easy program at times.

Christmas Holiday

Half way though the first month of 2014 and ready to start the school year. Have only just arrived back from the  very hot and humid Fiji. Cruising the islands was amazing and unfortunately my sewing was not even picked up.
