MOST VALUED PLAYER GOES TO....

We went to the Prizegiving last night... Our son's team won in their division... Mixed B Grade : National Netball Champs... and the Most Valued Player in that Division went to:

OUR SON!!!! Mike was totally unprepared to win that! He was gobsmacked to say the least, and I was so, so proud of him! He's a humble little bugger too.... never mind, I was jumping with joy for both of us! *smiles*

So after such an exciting few days.. it's back to ...NORMAL.

Normal being: kids to school, man to work and me to Patchwork Class this morning. After that there is a good deal of housework to be done... as per usual after a weekend. Lovely...

ONWARD.....
Today in Patchwork Class I was expecting to start on my Baby's Quilt.. but the lady who had promised me the pattern ''can't find it"... so I bought another little project so I would have something to do in class. It's a Table Runner called "Cupcakes" :


I have made the cupcakes! Now I have to applique' them on the background, do the borders... yadda, yadda, yadda. Now I am going to get on the net and try and find that pattern I really WANT to do!

I had this really long list of things I wanted to get done today... HA! I fell asleep at lunchtime didn't I? What a nana! So, bugger all got done. AND I haven't even thought of what I'm feeding the family tonight yet.... *sigh*.... but it won't be PIE. lol

HA HA! Forgot to do 'End of Day'! bit late now to say nite nite eh? lol

  14. O Congratulations to you and your "baby"!

    Why do you hate pockets so much?
    Because I am a Crooked person - I have a difficult time making those straight lines - STRAIGHT! I do a lot of talking to myself and hoping and praying and get my tongue wiggled every which way.AND I still get them crooked! It used to be the "neckbands" - but I am improving on them lately. So maybe there is hope for me and the pockets too. :)

  19. Well done Mike and his team! In the UK Netball is a girl's game we play at school. But it is very popular and there are a lot of adult leagues. Loved the runner...
