Cadens Quilt

My newest nephew Caden was born in late October so im not too far off with his quilt, he has it well before winter :)
Such an easy quilt that sewed up really quickly, as with all my quilts it took my ages to sew on the binding because it really is just such a boring job.

First Zucchini of the Year

So it has finally warmed up enough in the last couple of weeks for some veges to really take off....
2 Zucchinis tonight Yay!!!! There are lots of tomatoes on the bushes waiting to go red.... It wont be long.
I spent time this evening watering, tying up tomatoes and pulling out weeds, very relaxing and rewarding when we get to eat the yummy veges!!!!

Counting my Blessings :)

I am feeling very lucky today after watching all the devastation that is taking place in QLD. The flooding up there is unbelievable so many lives lost so many houses ruined..... so so dreadful.
I am happy that that is we live in a safe place that at this moment is free from disaster, i have beautiful kids that don't fail to put a smile on my face everyday.

RIP Tiger and 2 new family members :)

It was a sad day on Friday (7 Jan )that we had to say good bye to our faithful friend Tiger , she lived to the grand old age of 15. She had just had enough and couldn't walk anymore so now she is in doggy heaven :(.

A week before that we added to our zoo with two new miniature lop bunny rabbits. So introducing Ashes and Ebony, they are very cute and really placid.

A Night in Sydney

John and I had a lovely night away in Sydney this past weekend. It was so good to recharge the batteries and have a little time away from the kidlets.
These pictures are the view from the rooftop pool ..... was so so nice.
We stayed at Old Sydney Holiday Inn which is right in the heart of The Rocks.
We walked a lot and ate some yummy food, we had dinner at Pancakes On the Rocks which was beautiful!!!!
