Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and I wish everyone a very happy and healthy 2017.

We had a lovely family Christmas though it was missing some of the family members due to distance or circumstances

I am taking part in Pat Sloane's 182 day Solstice Challenge for the year which I am looking forward to and will be starting a bit behind still choosing my colour palatte.

Such a busy time of year getting close to Christmas, My eldest daughters birthday today, tomorrow is my son Keegan's 19th birthday and on Christmas Eve is my son Quin's birthday.
Have not had a chance for any sewing or crafts at all this week, has all just been go, go, go
I am hoping to find some time in the coming week to sit and relax with my sewing machine.
Have so many projects on the go I need to finish some of these UFO's.

I was lucky enough this week to win 10 FQ from Oz Material Girls in one of their lucky dips
so very happy with that

Another Fresh Start


2016 has been such an interesting year for many and as it comes to a close I am once again looking at the fresh start as are a lot of folk I imagine

I will be posting up photos of my quilts in here and I will also be getting into my reborning and putting up my finished dolls here though I am a relative newcomer to the art I do enjoy it

Finding time for all the crafts and hobbies I love is difficult with all life throws at me and my family, going to be taking some time in the next year to make time to do these things I love at least a couple of days a week.

Since my last post was the beginning of 2016, my husband is cancer free though is going in for another surgery in January 2017 due to some complications from previous surgeries but all positive

A couple of my boys have some heart issues which they will be dealing with in the coming year though positive outcomes expected for both :)

My favourite saying has been "Everything will be alright in the end, if it isn't alright, then it is not the end." It is something I choose to live by and prefer to live in a positive view of life no matter what is thrown at myself and my family xo

I wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and many blessings to all

This Friday (19 Feb) Heidi at Handmade by Heidi and Bobbi at Crafty Vegas Mom are organising a Friday Night Sew-In and I am so in!

I had already flagged with family and friends that I was having a weekend of sewing this coming weekend. As I have written below I havent been sewing for the last couple of months

Plan is to take kids to school and get to come home and start :-)

Have Seasons 1 of Quantum Leap and a few seasons of Heroes to keep me company for the day !

If you want to join along, go to the link here.

Well has been an extermely LONG time since I have used the blog basically forgot all about it

Since I was last here Braedan has had his operation on July 2009 and it has changed his life and ours
Talia and her partner Alex became engaged on January 15th 2010

I havent done any sewing for the last few months just havent been able to find time but have decided to make time for myself and my sewing no matter how difficult it may be at times

I have also started doing cross stitch in August 2009 and havent touched it either in the last couple of months so really need to find some me time and not feel guilty for doing so

Patrick Has Moved Out

Patrick (20) has moved out to live with his girlfriend Brooke , the first bird to leave the nest, feels very odd not having him here .
He invited myself and his dad for dinner last night he cooked Beef stroganoff with Rice which was lovely

Glad I taught him to cook LOL

Long time

Well it has been a long time since I have logged into this blog
My aim is to try and get to it a bit more

Have gotten back into dog showing and really enjoying it again
Have been really slack with the quilting and am going to try and set aside a few hours each week just for me to sew and get to my list which is on the right hand side

Rhiannon's eye is still not good after her accident at school so back to the Drs there and Braedan is back on his machine again and will be for a couple of years so the Dr's believe

Going to be working at the craft fair again this year which will be great and hope to get back to my Tapestry and to take up a cross stitch as well
Lots of plans LOL
