Northern Visitors

Bernie's family from the Atherton tablelands (North Qld) visited. Some have never been interstate so we drove over the bridge for a photo shoot . Ha !Ha!

We had so much fun making  pizzas.  The pool was open for business and face painting was a main attraction, first the kids and then  the adults, if you stood still you were painted.  

Family time

Spent some time with my brother during the holidays. They dug up fresh sand to make a sandpit, a bit of paddling on the dam, some fishing and a sausage sizzle on an open fire to end the day. What else could kids want.  The only technology was my camera.

If the tractor, the forklift, or the gator has a steering wheel or a horn it's very cool for this little boy.

Night time possum hunt is always good. Don't worry the gator never went anywhere . NO keys the kids just loved playing on it and pretending.

Creating with Scan and Cut

Feels like a little while since I've blogged ,sorry, but life just gets in the way sometimes.
I promised dear Peg I would catch up on my OPAM I missed August so now I am caught up if that is allowed?  Now life should be back to normal and I should be on time for October.  

I made these trays for the ladies I work with at school for Xmas ! Hopefully they don't read my blog. I used the Brother scan and cut. I have had it for ages but wasn't confident with it. After a few demonstrations at the Sydney  Quilt and Craft fair  I got inspired. The trays are quite big and hopefully will be useful not just for the Christmas season but all year around.

Needle Roll Finished.

I have finished my needle roll . It's  a good project to learn to do a lot of the stitches , but, I have to say I still have a long way to go. Now I  have a very useful needle roll to store all the special needles for the other Sue Spargo  projects. 

Sorry Peg I have missed August but this is my September project finished and hopefully by the end of September I will have finished my August project.

More Progress

More progress on my needle roll. Almost done.

Needle Roll

I have finally got a chance and the courage to start on my Sue Spargo needle roll.
Just a beginner with these stitches but I am enjoying it.
