So many things to do....

Oh, I have been a very bad blogger....I've just been a bit busy with my big project, which is nearly drawing to a close now. And I think.... (I really don't want to jinx myself by saying this!) it is all under control, and should be finished before the long weekend.

I've had a tiny bit of time to squeeze in a bit of crafting. I made little m a tiny patchwork blanket to clip his absolute favourite toy to, when he's in the pram. He's just discovered the joy of throwing things out of pram and leaning over the side to watch where they fall. He doesn't yet realise that I spend most of my day in a fog of tiredness, and am therefore highly unlikely to realise what he has done until it is too late, and the toy is gone forever.

He has lost a few beloved toys in this manner. But if the wooden ladybird goes, I don't know what i'd do! So this should keep it safe.
I embroidered a little bee onto it, he likes to do little buzzing sounds when he sees pictures of bees.
Other than that, I just spend a lot of time thinking about what I want to make, leafing through the pages of my craft books, piling different combinations of fabrics together, dreaming of all the projects I am going to start. I then realise there just aren't enough hours in the day. Where do they all go?
So instead I just continue to make little piles of fabric.
I can waste quite a lot of time doing this. (..I think that may be where some of the mysterious hours go....)
This may be a quilt for my lounge room to snuggle under in the winter months,

This may be a new quilt for a friends baby,Then there's the monster softie to make for little m, and many many birthday presents which need to be made in the next weeks. Thank goodness the long weekend is stretching before me!


  1. I know just what you mean! The piles of fabric look great, especially the pile for the lounge room quilt...lovely. Hope the lady bird stays secure.

  2. I love that quilt you did for your son - the bee is soo cute!

  4. The little quilt is totally gorgeous- and the fabrics for your lounge one... happy crafting this weekend... would love to be with you to do some crafting together and ofcourse to see the little m and husband of ER !! but not tooo long now although long enough!!! xxx

  5. The quilt is great, and I totally understand the problem with not enough hours in the day. I often wish i didn't need to sleep. I think another problem is that I spend waaay too much time checking out cute blogs like yours. ;)

    Anyhow, keep having fun piling up the fabrics!
