Happy weekend........

I have to admit to finding it a bit of an effort keeping up with my blog these days and then I get behind and I have so much to share that it puts me off even more ..lol....I wish I wasn't such a procrastinator.....



A couple of weekends ago, I went on our annual craft weekend away to Heathcote...what a ball we all  had......and I was so glad I got time to spend with jenny before she left for Queensland to live ....
booo hooo....

Anyhow we had a fantastic time , lots of laughs, lovely food , op shopping and quite a bit of creating done....
 
our craft room is the old squash court, so its huge.....
 
 
 
 
 
........and this is a pic of the Fawlty Towers dining room.....:)

 
 
  Heathers gorgeous quilt ......
 
 
 
    and finished a few weeks later ...its just stunning !

Jenny doing her thing.....


 
 
 
and me?
 
I got my quilt practically finished ....laying it out.....



wooohoooo, I just have to tie the layers together now....I LOVE how it turned out.......it took a lot of fabric that I collected over 6 months when  it was on sale or on clearance.....I couldn't decide on a color theme so I went with anything goes... and chose my favourite fabrics....

 
love its mismatched, vintagy  look.....
 
 
 
 
I also made this little wire birdcage, its rough as ...the wire was really hard to bend with your fingers....and I didn't have right tools with me..
 
 
 
I made this one after I got home....
 
 
 
 I wanted a more substantial bird so found these cheap Christmas decs at Big w.....they didn't  cover  very well with paint ( 4 coats and they were still pink)  but covered well with paper and napkins....
 
 
 
 
 
and this little [ big] is the latest addition to our family....born 3 weeks ago and still unnamed.......
 
 
 
 
the only surviving one with whole milkbar to himself....
 
 
 
 
a little whippet puppy....
 
 
 
                                                who is very cuddly and starting to develop a personality....


 
........eyes open :)



                                                            dozing tonight on my lap.....

 
he has certainly brought a lot of joy into the house :)

I do the same thing with blogging and then I get overwhelmed. I think it is normal though and we all go thru it. I love your quilt...it does look vintagey.....
I like the birdcage too. I always see what you are up to thru facebook too, but it isnt the same.
