book to read

Poor cookie was a little hot yesterday so he found a spot where the air conditioner was gently blowing and stretched out for maximum coolage!

I have my name down on the local library website for several books... imagine my surprise when I got the email to tell me that this book was in!! I must be the first to get it, a friend of mine just told me last week that she got her own copy!

I cut up and paired up all the fabrics for my friends granddaughters quilt.

I have now completed the blocks and need to put them together.

I'm quite pleased with the way they are looking and they weren't that bad to make either!!

new family member take 2

Today we found our newest member of the family.

This is Milly.

She is a little Jack Russell. Her mum is the same colour as her and her dad was a mini Jackie so she isn't going to be a huge doggie

She is only 6 weeks old today so we wont be getting her for 2 weeks....OMG its going to take forever!!

Note the little heart on her head!!

new toy

The beastie is home again. She has had a rear tyre alignment a little grease on the chain and her computer was fiddled with.

How ever no amount of fiddling would make the damn thing work so I decided to take it back to the shop and upgrade to a decent system.

It works with GPS and is soooo simple its not funny.

I sewed for a little while this morning after I came home from pump class, so I have sat down for a while.

This is the first block I have made for the quilt I am making for a work colleagues granddaughter. I have sewn up all the half squares today, so just need to iron and cut them later on.

melbourne cup day

Today was our Melbourne Cup holiday. Its the day the race stops a nation. I worked today but we did stop and go and watch the race on the big TV in the patients sitting room, was such a close finish... won it by a whisker!! I didn't win anything though.

However, I have finished my first entire ring!

I showed the froglet and she was very pleased with the result.... gave me crap about how long it had taken me.... then asked how many more do you need to make?? I cant remember if I am doing 4x5 or 5x6 ...... she decided 5x6 ..... might be done by the time she finds a husband lol
