Just a couple of pics

Well here we are in 2010. Happy New Year to all of you. Here are just a couple of pics of things I have been doing. Not much really.



We demolished our old kitchen.....................................


We have a new one now but it is not quite finished so you will have to wait for the finished pics.




I made an elf suit for Charlie out of an old singlet top, t-shirt and scrap felt. It was for her dancing groups end of year party. I even made the shoes.................................






We had a son turn 18 and of course Steven made the cake....................................







I made Tommy the turtle from an old bedspread and left over fleece,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,








And more recently I finally put my 'quilters blessings' stitcheries into a quilt top............................




Now I just have to finish it and send it away for quilting. I had to open a jelly roll which was very difficult to do you know.................so sad. The fabric is 'Natures Chorus'. I thought I had a crisis when I couldn't fit the strips the way I wanted but I just improvised and I love how it is turning out. I never measure anything I just sew then cut so sometimes I have to do strange things that would make a real quilter cringe..........hehehe But that's me........................



Bye for now

Jules

Lots of things been going on in your home Jules! Bet you are looking forward to the whole kitchen being fully completed, it is such a pain without one isnt it?! Cooking in frypan's, washing up in the laundry and boxes of kitchen gear scattered up the hallway, bedrooms and lounge Arrrrr!!..... I have re-done kitchens twice - one in each of our 2 previous homes! It will be worth the wait!

Steven's cakes always amaze me!! Just FANTASTIC!! How old is he?
Charlie's costume looks great, and by the smile on her dial she is pretty chuffed too! Well done! And, that quilt.... SO pretty!
