spots and stripes

The quilt top is done! The pattern is from here and I used very similar fabrics as I liked it's bright and happy colours. I changed the border fabric to a deeper blue as it is for a boy and the original has more reds and pinks.

Now it's time to sandwich it together and start the hand quilting!

What do you do when friends and family are all popping out babies? Make mini-moopies of course!

card making

I visited the shoppe not long ago and couldn't resist these beautiful cards. They arrived so quicky (unusual for us in Australia!) and were packaged so perfectly. They inspired me to make some cards over the weekend.....

When we were in Japan we found a beautiful washi store in Ginza that sold traditional japanese paper. There were so many patterns and styles and I ended up choosing red, navy and white designs. I used them on these cards underneath teardrop patterns.

.......and on the back, I used a traditional Korean stamp with my name carved out on it in Korean characters.

I love fridays. I can start to relax at around 3pm when I've picked up the kids from school/kindy and we're on the way home. No more rushing around, trying to bath and feed them and having them in bed by 7pm. It's even better when you know you will have a morning to yourself the next day. I'll be spending the morning with a friend for a coffee and a catch-up (hopfeully some shopping too!).

There is so much I want to do this weekend.....finish off a quilt top, do a little sewing, make some cards, start a new quilt and the list goes on. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
