Big Week!

Firstly can I say a big thankyou to everyone who left a comment on my previous post... I feel very lucky to have so many lovely blogging friends!!

Lots to celebrate this week, yesterday was mine and hubbies wedding anniversary and hubbies birthday, we did go out last night (no kids) something we don't do very often and had a beautiful meal. No fancy restaurant, just went up the road on the Lake Leake highway (1/2 hours drive) to a place called Lake Leake chalet. I did take my camera incase we saw a deer, but it was too dark to see...plenty of wildlife on the road though, and I saw my first spotted Quoll!


Unsure of the name of this one, but the pink berry has opened up to reveal a very pretty coloured red berry centre inside!




So hard to know what to make mum for mothers day, I have already made her quilts, bags, tablerunners and pot holders, so this year I have made her one of my jar covers (in mums colours) and a quilted coaster.




At the start of the week I finished 2 more Tis the Season blocks for May...so I am early this month!




I have also completed 3 more stitcheries to make a project from the book



love this stitchery




And this one is pretty cute too! The thread looks a bit different in some of the pics, but the same colour blue has been used in all three!

As tomorrow is Mothers Day, I get a day out in the sewing room and hope to make up my Tis The Season project...my mothers day pressie!

I will be back tomorrow for show you my finished project! Off to make another apple Crumble for desert tonight!

Congratulations on the wedding anniversary Lisa. Mum's present looks lovely. She must have lots of little touches of beauty in her home that came from you. The TTS stitcheries look so different in the blue, still cute as though. Enjoy your Mothers Day. Tracee xx

Lisa, your work is SO inspiring!
Congratulations on your anniversary and Hubby's birthday!
Have you shared how you get such beautiful curved pieces in your coaster and jar cover? (I missed it if you did). I am trying to track down Homespun magazine, I hope we can get it here in the USA.
Keep up the good work!
