Today at Patchwork Class I am finally going to make a start on my 'Noah's Ark' baby quilt. I have someone in mind for this quilt... but right now it's still a 'SECRET' .... just a couple more weeks and I will be able to tell you who!

While I really love making the cards, it will be nice to do some 'real' sewing .... lol!

ONWARD... well I'm back from Patchwork... I spent the entire time cutting out just the Rhino/Hippo/Parrot/Butterfly block pieces! This quilt is going to take AGES to complete!

Tis lunchtime... off to get something to eat...

YIKES ... where has the day gone? I have been busy doing housework, card making, getting dinner on (casseroled lamb chops in a thick mint sauce)... and now.... almost time to put the veges on too.

Seriously, I am just not finding time to read blogs right now... forgive me and I hope to be able to get back into the swing of it soon. There is just not enough hours in the day for me right now.. I am totally focused on getting the Whitianga order done, and now I also want to work on the baby's quilt too. *sigh*

End of Day: and I'm tired but sooooo happy! I have finished the first 100 cards for the Whitianga Order... only 150 to go! AND I am still loving it... which is saying something cos I usually get bored doing the same thing over and over again... but as each card is original and not a copy of any other.. it's fun, and that's what life is all about. Living, loving and having fun... and doing no harm to anyone else in the process! lol

nite nite.
