beads n wire

We went to visit my sister-in-law's bead store on Saturday and It was just like going into a button shop, colours everywhere and so much to choose from!

These tiny floral beads are my favourite.....

We spent Sunday threading them up, making bracelets for Ash, Josh and their friends....might have to visit again this weekend!

I have a bit of trouble coming up with quilt ideas for boys. I always end up choosing floral themed fabrics and tend towards red stripes or spots. This one is for my nephew and it's looking very bright....we'll have to see how it turns out. I'm hoping to finish it before his christening in July so fingers crossed!

change of mind

I started this quilt months ago when I found out I was going to be an aunt and it turned out to be a very girly quilt. I now have a new nephew James so I have had to start another one! Ash has claimed this one for herself and it just covers her as she is three.

It's a simple quilt, nine inch squares and hand quilted with a criss cross pattern. I'm so glad it's finished!

coming up for air

It's been a busy few months. I took a small break to spend time with the kids, get used to new routines and to try and get a little more organised around here. I can now pack two sets of lunches in 5 minutes, half asleep, at six in the morning!

We made a trip to Japan and Korea to visit friends and family in April. It was wonderful (and tiring) to take Josh and Ash away. We just missed the cherry blossom festival but managed to find a few still in bloom!
