FMQ Homework

This is my homework for Carole from Madness and Mess, this is hard! I can do squiggles, daisies, and other fmq designs, but writing - sheesh!  Now that i have embarrassed myself, the others have no excuse!
Giggling is mandatory!

Crap, crappity, crap, crap, I try to remember all the events going on, but as usual, i forgot FNSI. Crap. But then i remembered its still friday in the good ol US right?
Great, i still have time! I will call this the oz saturday/ us friday night sew in! So if you would like to join in, this is where you need to go Hand Made By Heidi, she has some very nice stuff that goes on over there.
I am in the process of  quilting the border of a quilt which has been on the armchair for only a couple  of months  (really? ), and my daughter wanted to use it the other night so i thought it would be a good time to finish this one and seeing as its winter here now.
And because i never do anything in halves its another humungous quilt, so thats my excuse. I was actually in my kinda local quilt store (40km's away) on friday doing some of the whoops a daisies, yes thats what one of the girls called them ! I'm still learning!

I hope to finish this over the weekend, but i'm probably kidding myself there, hope you have a great weekend.
Also hope no one was offended by the last quite rude links to  Dr G, but you gotta admit its funny !

52 lists in 52 weeks

 I found this linky via a lovely blog Random thoughts do or di, so this week its 10 things you learnt while overseas, ok, only 10? If you would like to join here is where you need to go!

ok I was trying to be clever like di but it didnt work out! So here's my list
  1. Have fun that's what holidays are about
  2. Keep a sense of humour, it will keep you sane too!
  3. Be prepared to go off the beaten track to see something special
  4. Have respect for others
  5. Try and learn a little of the local language, it helps and can create some laughs!
  6. Try not to walk around with your jaw hanging open at wonderous places!
  7. Do  research  where you are going before you get there, it saves time and money, and sanity!
  8. Take the time to smell the roses
  9. Take a warm coat, t-shirt and jeans, you will be warm/ cool and practical
  10. Take loads of photos and make sure your 14yr old hasnt wandered  off into the midst of a huge crowd in a foreign city with no cell ph!
Happy travels!

WIP a never ending story!

 I guess we all have a stack of stuff to do, and if you are like me and love to start new projects but lack the time to finish them this might help! Sew Shine has a giveaway to give us all a little push in the right direction. Just follow the link and good luck! Thank you Anne Marie for the post to get us going!
And there will be a button on the side bar with the WIP on it. No excuses! See its right there on the right!

I will committ to three projects, the one on  the cutting board, another Phd in that cavernous box, and one from the pile on the floor, phew I'm overwhelmed already!

Just hanging around!

Hello and Happy Thursday sweet friends!!
First I have to thank you for your super kind comments, I have changed my comment form now so no more problems I hope!
I found these on the net, they are quite amazing! They actually they are quite large - pods, the latest design for Dedon. They can stand alone or be hung in a tree, mind you it would have to be a strong one, check out the size!

Perhaps they come in different sizes, otherwise the poor tree might not survive!

They look like the perfect place to hide with a good book on a warm afternoon, perhaps i could fit one beside the pool!

wonderful wintery mornings

Winter wisps 

Its been a hectic week, at work most of it, cant wait to get the craft mojo happening again, just a little weary right now, but I love my work, i would be lost without it and miserable, there are  many lovely lovely people that come through our little unit, so i consider myself  very fortunate, even though i am usually exhausted by the end of the week! Hope you are all well, and happy, and kiss your loved ones and tell them you love them. :)
