I dreamt about that figgin bag... and making another one! Colourways.... bling..... *shaking my head*!

I need to save my money! I... (I mean SANTA)... has to save every cent for Christmas presents! Grrrrrr.

BUT... I do have lots of material! Just need a piping foot for me machine... and more cottons. I can probably swing it.

Today: we are off to peruse the Kayak... and get it paid for and held for Christmas! Wooo Hoooo!

Last day for folks in the Northern Hemisphere to get their names in for my GIVEAWAY! I will be doing the draw tomorrow morning!

TOMORROW MORNING! Yeee Haaaa... kids will be back at school! BLISS..... I can get my house in order and enjoy the peace.

All sorted! Got the Kayak, paddles AND lifejackets for the kids with a $300 discount! Can't get much better than that.
Had lunch at Sylvia Park... and now?

Housework. Gardening. Sew Griffin's name on his new school shorts. JUST NORMAL STUFF.

Aaaaah.. always worth taking a photo of... a man working! In this case, Stew getting my summer vege garden prepared. I will be able to plant out tomatoes and lettuces next weekend.

End of Day: it's been a neat day! Nothing to add to that. nite nite.


  1. Gosh that wee bag is just lovely! But I am a sucker for bags.
    Especially ones with red on them. Have a great day. Fingers crossed the sun will come out today. :-)

  8. That is a pretty bag and I can fully relate to dreaming about new projects. Sometimes I can't get to sleep cos the brain keeps thinking of colours and fabrics and blocks!!

    Enjoy the rest of your day. It's glorious here and I'm hoping to get a few holes of golf in with the boys later. If not, there's always sewing and washing and vacuuming!

  9. Why don't you start selling some of the things you are making. It will kill two birds in one stone, like giving you soemthing to do while maybe making some money along the way.

    Start canvassing the touristy outlets to see what is available people just love local crafts - I know I do and I'm sure you could come up with something that had a NZ theme the tourist would love it.

  10. You're sewing Griffin's name on his shorts? That's really cool. I'm lucky if I get round to hemming and other repairs. :]

  15. Chris, you and Stew are welcome here ANYTIME!

    Next year Hubby and I are taking a break from the Halloween parties, and going to come down your way instead, to celebrate our 20th anniversary. How about the year after that (2011) you come here for the party!

    My house is totally trashed right now, but it really is starting to look awesome. I'll post tons of pictures after the party. I try not to give too much away before the party, but it's just too fun not to share.

  16. Oh, for a minute there I thought you wanna make another baby.
