I'm leaving on a jet plane.

We are leaving on a jet plane.

Children staying home with Mother.

Second honeymoon unlikely, will be too busy looking at House and deciding if we will move to the Sunshine state. Have to check out shops, schools etc. Make sure there is a fabric store for quilters and a craft outlet.

Will be thinking of you all freezing, whilst l swim around in the resort pool at the end of a long day.

Autumn has arrived.

Autumn is here at last. The trees are turning beautiful colours.
Soon they will be bare.

The Big Move.

Well everyone keeps asking me if we have found a house yet. We sold our house twelve months ago and have been looking every Thursday and Saturday for the perfect house location. We are in no hurry as we know we have another house we can move into if time runs out. Our children are all in secondary school and being prepared for life ahead of them. The only consideration is that we move where they will be able to obtain employment. My hubby is retired and we are at that time in life were it is now OUR time whilst we are still active and healthy. Longer do we need to spoon feed our children, they are growing independent people with views of their own. Of course they still need a place to live and guidance but one day they will leave this nest and have families of their own. So on that note we are heading next week off to the Sunshine Coast etc. Will keep you informed when we have found our new home.

Now you can all see.

This was my secret gift for Simone's b'day. Took a while to catch up with her.
Now it has been handed over. Hope Simone can enjoy this gift many times over. Fabric sweets are a great way of not stacking on those extra kilos. Am off and running to complete Claire's b'day gift, June is such a busy month for our family as we have three b'day's within two weeks. So lots of cake and comfort foods being winter, not good for any dieting. Have to enjoy life, each day a blessing from God.

Phillip Island Retreat.

Mothers Day week end l and lots of others attended a wonderful weekend retreat at Phillip Island.

Was go from the time l left home picking up friends along the way. Stopping off at as many quilt store as possible on route , picking up that very special fabric, button, pattern that you just had to have. Or to start a new project you don't know when you could possibly fit in with all your other UFO's but it's on my list of things to do now. Cannot tell you what we got up to because have been sworn to secrecy. Lets just say no cooking or washing dishes. Left time to sew sew sew or buy more fabric at the store on site. Lots of talking laughter and friendships made.

These photo's show my fabric choice, for my designer bag. Which is still not finished. Like the colours on the bark of this gum out side our room.

Mother's Day

The secret of a happy life is to think kindly of others and live fully in the the now. To all the Mothers out there, you have given us the greatest gifts a child can receive- love, laughter, and kindness. On Mother's Day we think of you in our hearts and minds, of all the special times you have given to us. Happy Mother's Day 9/5/10
