Sunday Snippets

There has been lots going on around here, with zero time to collect thoughts and take a breath.  It's great to be busy but a bit of peace and quiet would be a welcome change.  So this 10 minutes is my time!

What I need to remember to give myself the space to do;

A special boy had his first birthday;
A splash of colour spotted in the city;
A lesson - children and red frosting make for messy outcomes;
Making something for a baby girl in the extended family - it's been nice switching from cowboys to fairies;

Have a look at the week that was for other folk, courtesy of Tinnie Girl.

Sunday Snippets

I don't know if it was the ginger and lemongrass tea or the Codral, but feeling so much better this week. Highlight of the week was afternoon tea with some old friends -  a howling success, with the guests and the drop-ins leaving around 8.30pm.

Thanks for hosting Tinnie Girl.

Starry eyed

I don't know what it is about star quilt blocks but I just love them.  So when I was thinking about making a gift for a work mate's on the way baby boy, I thought that the best way to feature a cute cowboy print was to make another Wonky Star quilt, placing the print in the centre.  With fabric that didn't work for the Hot Spot Quilt as the background and some bibs and bobs I had around the place, I've made  multicoloured stars that I think make a nice change from baby pastels.  So while I might be using and old favourite, at least I am putting a new twist on it.  Now I am worried that I am developing a cowboy obsession.
