I'm out of breath just writing it all down.
My friend, Stripey Tiger, had just put a link to this blog on her blog. She describes me as someone who knits, quilts and scraps. I thought she was lying, but she knows me better than I know myself.
Knitting - As a novice knitter, I knit scarves and wraps. I have found a nice pattern at BigW for a wrap/scarf, which I am now half way through.
Quilting - I now have photos of the quilt for Lauren and am making both a girl and boy one for my new niece/nephew due in the next 2 weeks. Mum and I have also decided on a simple squae block design quilt for Rachel in large print floral fabrics. Still have quite a few UFOs including a friendship quilt for Stripey (lucky, my
commitment to the friendship is greater than my commitment to finishing that UFO. LOL), a wedding quilt for brother Craig and Wendy (married 18months ago, and due to having pending niece/nephew) .
Scrapping - I have completed thre LOs for Mum's Birthday and and working on some for Mother's Day. I have a new camera which I am loving and have taken some fab shots of the kids.
I have scrapped this once for myself but I think every member of my family will get this photo at some point this year. It is just on of those perfect photos, capturing their spirit.
I am starting to work in rectangles (8.5 x 11) and smaller squares (6x 6). I am definitely having fun.
Once I have finished the scarf, I'll let you see it as I am sooo proud.

LAUREN ELIZABETH STEVENS
I drove down to Nowra and back yesterday ( about 4 hours driving) to see her . When Brad and Linda had William they were living in Deniliquin ( 10 Hours aways) and so Linda spent 6 days in hospital with precious few visitors.
So this time I was not going to let that happen again.
Lauren is quite beautiful and very noisy. I made her a pram quilt, which will match her room perfectly, unbeknowns to me.
Photos to come.

I wouldn't be so peeved only that I was determined to have the accounts for the P&C meeting tommorrow night done and looking beautiful. Last year I wasn't organised and didn't produce them. So I have them all finished and now I can't print them out. How frustrating !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Looks like I'll be taking them on disc.
Anyway, I am now going to play with my scrap supplies to calm my nerves. This week I went to Scrapbook HQ with my blinkers on and only bought cardstock. I buy so much patterned paper that I end up with no cardstock for my LOs. SO I am now going to play. I'll show you my work tomorrow.

These books I am most proud of. I collected quotes that were meaningful to me and decorated two 3inch books. The pink one went to together really quickly and I thought that this concept was going to be great. But the blue proved more difficult. It just didn't work - the ribbon was wrong , I didn't have enough patterns , then I had too many. Eventually I was happy and the reaction from the girls was wonderful. Of course , I was putting the blue together in the last week before Christmas, so many my mind wasn't on the job.
Anyway I'm off to watch the 20/20 cricket. See ya.

2006 - A new start
I am trying to get photos of my LO's for you all. But I haven't been happy. But that could just be me procrastinating.
I loved the paisley paper and wanted to use it just for me. I tend to scrap photos of the kids ( as there are more photos of them), but I now live creating things for ME.
Hopefully the nes\xt lo's posted will have better photos. We'll see
