ABOVE: What I'm working on now! Two baby cot quilts, and a duvet (doona) cover! The top one has to have another animal yet... waiting for the elephant pattern to arrive.... it wasn't in the kit like it was supposed to be! Oh well.. I've got plenty to keep me going!

I still really don't like the zebra... and might replace it with something else yet. I'm like that.. it has to be 'just so' or it will bug the shit outta me!

Today: Hospice Shop... till mid afternoon. Then when I get home... blog reading/commenting until I'm all caught up again. This is becoming a 'weekly event'! I ignore all of you for 5-6 days, then go nuts and read for hours! LOL... I suppose it just means I am finally doing stuff instead of just sitting at my computer all day... and this is good... don't ya think!

AND I must remember to ring Harvey Norman's sometime today and see how much longer it will be for our new lounge suite to arrive! It's been 13 weeks now... and they did say it would be BETWEEN 12 and 14 weeks for it to arrive. So... here's hoping they can tell me WHEN. I want it NOW. I am not a patient person... so it's quite amazing I've managed to go this long without ringing them. ha ha ha.

HI! back from 'work'.. which was neat today. I got lots of treasures.... but left them there! Will pick them up next week. Derrrr.
It's a crappy day, wet again. We seem to have had rain for weeks on end now... can't wait for it to stop!
Off to read blogs now...
*phew*... just read over 100 blogs... can't do anymore. Feels good to catch up a bit on what's going on with you all.
MAGPIE: sorry, your emails went to my junk folder! I can't add you sorry, my private blog is full... I can only have 100 readers!!! You lucked out there, should have re-newed your invite sooner!
End of Day: and it's been a long day...and I had planned to do NOTHING this evening, but instead I sewed a hippo onto the duvet cover! Oh well... it's fun. nite nite.


  1. Ha-ha! Yep, 13 weeks IS between 12 and 14! :)

  2. Those are all just too stinkin' cute! I think my favorite is the giraffe with the butterfly!

    I'm like you...not very patient at all when it comes to waiting for something I want really badly. Hope it arrives soon!



  3. Those blocks are so cute. I agree with you on the zebra-it doesn't sing to me like the others.
    Have a good day at the shop. Treasures??

    Perhaps if you re-did his nose. Made it longer instead of a round nose. Sorta an oval head. I love your quilt figures. They really are cute!! Don't know how you get so much don't! amazing to me...debbie

  5. I think they all look great! Have I told you how jealous I am of your talent? Yep, I think I have...

    Hey Chris

    I agree with the Zebra - it is seems no as eye catching as the other colourful animals.


  7. Oh, those quilts will be so cute. I haven't even knitted a blanket for our new baby who is coming soon. Bad grandmom, I am.

  8. Hi Chris,... I was thinking, that in return for the booties you are sending, I could make you a beaded necklace or bracelet. Do you wear much jewellery? Which of the two would you prefer?

    I know you loves blues... should I use light blue (aqua/turquoise) or dark blue (navy)?

  9. As I've said before, you are soooo talented!

  10. Chris, you are so blessed! I ADore your blocks. Just looking at them makes me smile and to think of a little one enjoying them is quiet an honor.

    Good luck on your set you are waiting for!

  11. I can't wait to see what treasures you find at the Hospice shop today :-)

    Chris, I love the Zebra, The only thing that I can see is that the nose looks a bit like the nose of a pig.

    The blocks are just to cute.

    Maggie (Magpie)

    Don't forget to read your emails, I wrote asking to be added.

  13. You should make me a block :) I'd even take the zebra ;)

  14. Those blocks are looking so cute and I LOVE the zebra he is MY FAV!! its quirky... I only managed one day sunbathing this week BUT in that one day it was BLISS!

  15. Well, for what it is worth....I love the zebra. It is actually my favourite out of all of them:) And also.....I think that hair colour really suits you!!

  16. Yep I'm liking the new hair colour - it's not too dark so we still get the emphasis on your beautiful blue eyes, and if it makes life easier than I'm all for it. And yes Greece and the Greek Islands - mwaw!!! I need to go back and explore more. Zxx

  17. I like the giraffe and monkey best.
    I think you could make a lot of money with your quilts.

  18. Those animals are darn cute. Well - all of them but the poor zebra. He/she isn't looking too cute. However, I would feel sorry for him/her is he/she got excluded!

  19. It's been raining heaps here too! I can't find the giraffe in the back yard, the grass is so high!

    What your quilt needs now is....

    A lovely big fat green frog! haha! xx
