Foster Care

We recently were approved as Foster Parents :) It took us a little over 12 Months from lodging our application to our approval.
We have had a 13 month old baby girl for the past three weeks and a 5 year old boy for the last week. So life has been busy in our house with 6 Kids, never is there a dull moment :) Already i feel that it is one of the best things i have ever done, having kids myself of course coming first but fostering definitely second.
I hope its the start of a long time of fostering :)

Grandmothers Flower Garden

Well My may to do list is pretty much "untouched" so of course i started something new. I love hexagons and have been looking at all the Grandmothers Flower Garden Quilts on Flickr and i just had to make one of my own.
I decided to use 1 inch hexagons and all different pinks for the flowers , so have been collecting some pretty pink fabrics. Im not sure how big it will be.... I would like it to be a single bed size ( in about 10 years :)) Im thinking 5 flowers wide x 10 flowers long , i will see how i go !!!
