Reading 2011

I am disappointed in how much i have read this year...... haven't even made it to twenty yet :( I guess having six kids and a sewing habit really cuts into my time :)

Just finished The Decision by Penny Vincenzi .... over the past 12 or so years i have read all her books.I really enjoy the family drama :)

Beautiful babies

I was lucky enough to snap this picture with all my four standing still together.

They are standing in front of the gorgeous desk and hutch we rescued from community recycling centre . Nan and pa spent many hours sanding it back and painting it.... They did a great job .

Wow 11 years on .....

At 1.35pm 11 years ago i gave birth to my second baby Sienna.

She arrived very quickly , so quickly that she was born at home :)

Happy Birthday Miss Sienna its been a great 11 years !!!!

A quilting finish - Pennsylvania Dutch

This one has been finished for a while but i keep forgetting too take a picture of it.
It was a Block of the Month for my birthday from my lovely husband.
It is the biggest quilt i have made so far and probably my favourite.
