Invitation To My Niece

In my last blog post, I mentioned my niece (Tamika) and she was thrilled beyond belief! (apparentley it means your famous if your mentioned on Auntie Rose's blog **sweet**). Plus she is adamant that she is going to follow in my shoes (love her!!!). She does have a flair for arts/crafts and true to my word, Id like to encourage her and her interest!
So today I went shopping at Spotlight for some supplies:
Some pretty Fat Quarters, hmmm what can we make? and of course some........

........buttons, ribbon and that gorgeous butterfly!!! Oh this will be fun!!!

So Miss Tamika , school holidays are just around the corner. Auntie Rose will come and "steal" you for the day and we can sew to our hearts content........you just have to bring the chocolate ok lol!! And when we are finished all the lovely people who read my blog will want to see some pictures of our day.......fun!!!!

When Doves Fly

Its always great when one of your samples arrives in the mail after a magazine commission and when I received this one today, I realised I hadnt shared it, which is really bad of me. I like to share the project as soon as the magazine hits the stands:

This appliqued tablerunner is called "When Doves Fly" and it is really pretty. Its a good little project to brighten up your table for the Spring/Summer months that are approaching.

This is how it appeared in the Creating Country Threads magazine last month. I know I say this a lot but I do love how they photograph and present each of the projects.

My niece (8) insisted her mum buy this issue and she took it to school for "show and tell", which was really sweet........maybe I can make a quilter out of her, since Maddi has no interest!
Have a great weekend!

Thanks and Sweet 16!!

Hugs to everyone for the lovely messages/texts/emails on the passing of both my grandparents. I havent answered anyone because I just cant right now (cant really express how I feel, just trying to keep it normal) but all of the family have read and found comfort in each and every heartfelt thought......thank u, from all of us! We will miss them both! Heaps!!!
Amid all the sadness, our sweet little girl turned 16!!! How did that happen?? I have vivid memories of her in her crib the day she was born, so sweet, so innocent, so dependant. Now she looks at me with that same "needing" but now its different, now its Driving Lessons:

Yeh she has my car (my"Oh no! dont hit, the Cruze" new car.........and for those who love and know me, this is a "biggie" lol). She will have her own car in the next few weeks and this leaves me pondering...........this whole "teaching kids to drive is tough, really tough" but Im a total control freak and neither of my kids will leave home without my "nagging" voice planted in their heads (Les is a fantastic driver and would be a great teacher.....did I mention Im a control freak???).

Im so happy for Maddi.......life is really starting to happen. She has never been one to grow up before she needs to, theres no rebellion, no sassing or resentment, no envy of other kids! Keep your focus baby, look at life on that huge scale and strive for your goals but remember no matter what happens, whatever path you take..............I will be there for you, right by your side, just as I was the day you were born! Love u Muff, 4EVA xxx
Happy 16th!!!
