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.
