Last Six Weeks

The last six weeks have been hectic with school, application for uni, aerobics, creche, stolen wallet, bingled car, Jay's 5th birthday, new camera and getting ready for Easter camping.

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.

See ya

Ah, and she forgot scrapbooking.
The quilt is beautiful. Ilike how you used the same fabric in the blocks as in the borders. I would have put an inner border to separate them, but the way you did it is even better, it looks like a completely different pattern!
There are lots of new babies in your life! It seems like so many of your posts are announcing a new relative!
