The art of flower arranging

Two enthusiastic children learnt some new skills from Grandma.
And I ended up with a houseful of beautiful flowers.

holiday snaps

Here are a few holiday photos from Echuca/Moama.

The mighty Murray.


An awesome 'yarn bombed' tree in Echuca.



Bushwalking..


Mini/adventure golf.. the course was sooo long and wound it's way through the bush. Fun for all!


The Echuca Wharf, viewed from our ride on the Paddle Steamer - Pevensey




At the helm




Picturesque views where we stayed.





Fun on the bikes


The boys enjoyed the Holden Museum

A stop over on the way home for our farm-loving boy who was desperate to help with the sheepwork.

House bound

A week of the chickenpox and the rainy weather has seen us pretty much house bound. Cancelled appts and music lessons etc meant more time for sewing and playing.

I saved some roses from the rain before they were too spoilt.



Back to basics, piecing a quilt with the first pattern I learnt 15 years ago.




Green smoothies are hopefully helping to keep the germs and bay and they taste good too!



Soft and snuggly baby blanket - I used fleece on the back for the first time.


A cushion order.... I could have easily kept these!

April is here

Another rainy week has gone, the leaves are well and truly turning now and the mornings are feeling suspiciously like winter is on its way!
Has this craze hit your house too? I'm finding little bands everywhere but the kids are having lots of fun creating all sorts of uses for lengths of rubber bands!
And the sewing continues.....

Almost a month

Well here I am again after almost a month... time does get away.

We found a free Saturday for a quick trip to the coast. We saw about 30 dolphins swim by the beach but unfortunately I'd left my good camera in the car. 



Some more painting.. this time on the shutters that have been waiting in the shed for a while... not sure if they are quite how I imagined, but I can still tweak them while on the wall!


Easter stock orders




Starting a big quilt... 

and starting a small quilt


Cute hair ties from some scraps

A trip here with the boy, and inspired to read Biggles again


A secondhand jug find with roses from the garden
