50 Books in 2010

Well i have just clocked up book number 28 so i highly doubt i will get to 50 !!!!!

So i am revising my goal and am trying to get to 40, completely doable ... I hope.

This morning i finished Sliding into Home by Kendra Wilkinson, a really easy read. I was always intrigued as to why these gorgeous girls where "Girlfriends" to a really really old man. Surely money and fame where so not worth it. The book didn't really go into the Playboy Mansion stuff too much, So i still think its very degrading and dont understand why anyone would put themselves in that position :s

I guess i liked the book she is a fairly like able character and quite funny :)

Pennsylvania Dutch September and To Do List for next couple of Weeks!!!!

Finished this one in record time cant wait for the last block so i can get this quilt finished, i think it will become our lounge quilt as it will go nicely with our blue lounge.
I had to snap a Pic of my favourite fabric in the quilt so far too.

By the end of the school holidays so in the next three weeks i hope to complete this list :
* Gardeners Journal Block C( tiny bit of Stitching left )
* Gardeners Journal Block H- already traced and ready to go
* Applique Block 2 Pies from Pie and Tarts Quilt
* Applique 43 Starts on Noah's Star Quilt
* Cut out Baby Quilt ( see Below)

My baby sister is having her 3rd baby in a few weeks and i have searching for the perfect fabric and i found this super cute fabric from The Fat Quarter Shop.
I'm not 100% sure of the pattern I'm going to use but i like Elia's Quilt on Crazy Mom Quilts .

Pennsylvania Dutch Block 10

Block 10 is done, i cant wait to get this quilt together its so nice.
I also have dreaming and thinking about what to make with all the leftover fabric that comes in this BOM. The Fat Quarter Shop are so generous with there fabric most of the blocks have nearly double the fabric needed.

New Chook House and Run!!!!

Our growing family of chickens needed more space especially to lay.
We got our first house and 2 little chickens here.
We are now getting 5 eggs a day which is great !!!! I think we will still let them free range in the yard most of the day, then back into there 5 star residence for nights, its complete with laying box and pull out tray for easy cleaning .
