Wedding Day

I have just spent the day watching the wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton. Such a beautiful wedding. THE DRESS. I loved the lace and the elegant lines of her dress. Her sis did a great job as maid of honour. The little girls and boys were sweet. I am being super soppy here, but I did enjoy the whole event. And... the prince.. well, he was as gorgeous as ever. I did however get a little stitching done on a runner and some table mats I am making for my youngest D. A day is never wasted when some stitching is done :o) Will post pics when I have loaded them from my camera

Post from Jess

Hi everyone. Look what lovely things I got in the post from Jess of Scrappy n Happy. I won the mug rug in her giveaway. It was wrapped in this beautiful paper. . . . .

which was double sided, with a lovely design on the inside too. Then when I opened it there was a surprise along with the gorgeous mugrug. Jess sent me some of the fabric she used for binding. I am sooooo blessed. Thank you Jess.

I put one of my favourite china mugs on it to show it off to the family. There is no coffee in it. Some day I will summon up courage to use it with a real drink of coffee. It is so pretty I just want to look at it and stroke that lovely fabric. This just made a sunny day even brighter.

Happy me.

New Colt

This little guy was born last night. He is Sue's seventh foal. Dad is marked this way, and it has taken 7 tries to get one like him. All the other's were chestnut like mum.
At the milk bar. He was up and drinking within 30minutes of being born. Apparently Sue had to rest her muzzle on his rump to keep him steady, as his long legs were a bit too wobbly to allow him to drink. He's steadied up today though. No problem now.

Spring and finishes

Hi everyone, It's spring today. T'was winter yesterday. That's what April is like here. DH and I had lunch outside. It was lovely. However, I had lots to do. Ironing, vacuuming, dusting, it never goes away. I did spend the morning at my machine however, finishing D2's curtains. Then there was yesterday.....well, I finished a little bag for myself. I used some laurel burch dancing horses fabric which I love for its vibrant colours...You want to see....ok then here goes.
Sorry the curtains are sideways. Forgot to turn the pic before uploading.This is a peek at the colours of the fabric in my bag. I found it really difficult to cut this fabric, I wanted to keep it and keep it.The buttons and tabs that give a little shape. Dont look too closely at the stitching. Not happy with it.However, I love the bag

It has a little inside pocket, and a strip of scraps along the centre of the removable base. I didn't waste the tiniest bit.

Then I remembered I hadn't taken a pic of block 2 of my BOM. Pondhouse quilt.

Here it is, out in the Spring sunshine. Block 3 is due any day. Cant wait.

Is it any wonder I have all those household chores to do. Better get going. Luv B.
