About Me

My Photo
Married to Tony mother to 2 children Lucas 23, Gemma 26 & her boyfriend Sean. Carer for 2 crazy Jack Russells. I'm dyslexic so excuse any mistakes. The Stitching Room is where I spend my time playing with Clarice (my camera) and Bernie (my sewing machine). Come on in and see what I'm up to.

Finally show sewing

I have been sewing but some I couldn't show so now for the reveal.
An Advent Calendar for Charoltte.
I have had fun bringing this together hopefully I will get a pattern written for
Christmas in July 2012 LOL.

for Charlotte

Gemma and Sean moved into their new home on Monday, I frantically put this together as their settlement was quite short.
A new quilt for a new home.

All quilts must have a label.

A bag for a friend.

a swap for Judy

and another one.
I love this grey linen.

a bag for Tarsha

and the bag of goodies to fill the advent calendar which is on it's way to Moonta as I type.
I am amazed that every toy you buy these days has some sort of warning attached to it. I have not bought stuff for small children in such a long time. Is there no common sense any more we live in such an over protected world.
Well that was my little rant for the day.
Have a great weekend.

Sadly while out walking I found this after a windy night how clever are these little birds to weave their nest just using a beak and their little feet.

Missing Again

Gemma was in a wedding yesterday, it was a hot day and although the ceremony was at 5pm it was still really hot.

After taking some photos Tony and I headed to Grange for a bite to eat and a walk out the jetty. It was an hot overcast evening, with the sun peeking through the thick cloud cover.

I was out and about the other day and I happened to have my camera in the car.
I had to pull over and take a photo, it made me smile.

Life has been hectic and it doesn't look like changing as Christmas is looming.
