Scrapbooking while in Sydney November 2015

I know…   I know…  I seem to always be in Sydney 🙂 Eldest son Matthew and his wife had a trip to Las Vegas for a conference and some fun as well, and I am here to look after the two youngest grandchildren. The eldest is now 18 and very independent. She is studying […]

The Disappearing Nine Patch

I can’t believe it! I have made another blanket! I’m really on a roll at the moment, and thoroughly enjoying myself. This time I used the disappearing nine patch block for the main part of the quilt and then added a border and binding. The material is a Riley Blake fabric and is very pretty […]

The Creative Juices Are Flowing

There is nothing like a baby being born to get me in the mood to create! Over the years I have made hundreds (a slight exaggeration) of bibs, cuddle blankets, leggings, little tops, cardigans and bootees. And, if you search through my past blog entries you will see that for my youngest three grandchildren, I […]

It’s a Pom Pom making day

Another wet day in the Naki! And another day to entertain the grandsons indoors. I taught grandaughter Casey how to make a Pom Pom the last time I was in Sydney, so thought that it was the perfect opportunity to teach the boys as well. Pom Poms are really easy to make and are a […]

A little bit of my crafty life…

While expecting the three new grandchildren to arrive this year, I decided to get back into some of my older craft activities. Amazingly, the Scrapbooking has been put aside until I’ve completed these baby gifts! But I will get back to it as there will be so many photos of each new grandchild to make […]

A Patchwork of a year

You all know that I am a pretty crafty person. In fact I feel something missing in my day if I haven’t managed to be creative in some way. From my previous blog post you can see that patchwork has been a favourite hobby over this past year. In fact, scrapbooking has been put aside […]

And the fruit of the Spirit is….

A Patchwork Present!

My holiday is planned for the whole of August and my daughter-in-laws birthday is in August while I am away. Chloe is a beautiful talented lady and I wanted to give her something special for her birthday. As both her and Ben live in Sydney, I usually give her a gift card or get something […]

Way behind in my posts!

I don’t know why but I am way behind in updating my blog. I’ve been back from Sydney since the 17th of June and I haven’t managed to do any more Scrapbooking! How sad is that! I did manage to do a few more pages while I was there though so I will add those […]

One week in Sydney

This week has gone so fast. Matthew and Rebecca left for Fiji last Sunday to go to Rob and Libs wedding. I stayed home and played ‘Mum’. And…I loved it! Although I must admit I am feeling tired. Actually, I wake up tired! But that’s not unusual for me. I’ve been like that for years. […]
