Things I have done this week, other than post

Sometimes the weeks are so full, that if you take the time to post, you will have nothing to show.  In no particular order, here are some of the things keeping me off the computer……

On Thursday I finally had 3 hours of delicious “alone time” and spent it with my felt, a hot cuppa, and the CD of Les Misérables.  It has been years since I listened to it, and I loved it all over again.  This time I made one of my flowers a little larger and turned it into a brooch.  I also made a couple more of the hair clips, all in my cherry blossom design.

The Chocolate brown one may even have to be for me.

While I was looking up some felt things on the great and mighty inter-web last week, I found this amazing array of work that defies description.  Take a look, if you have a few minutes, it is quite inspiring.

Thursday was a whole lot better than Wednesday, when I had yet another of my children sick on the couch all day.  Luckily Michaela improved by the next day after a bit of TLC, and was not as sick as Rory had been.

Thursday night I went along with my friend Debbie to North Of The Yarra Quilters Guild for the first time.  It was fun, and I sure need a regular night out midweek.

This is a Wooden “A” that Amelia was given for her birthday, along with some lovely scrap-booking paper and cut-out flowers. Today we mixed up some paint to paint the edges and the flowers.  Tomorrow we are going to cover the front and back face with the paper.  Such a lovely creative gift, (thank-you Kyra).

Yesterday was the last day of term, and the kids finished an hour early.  Instead of 3 kids, I brought home 5 for the afternoon.  The kids played really well together, and all four of the older kids allowed Michaela to join in, rather than complaining to me about her pestering, so there were happy people all round.  Let’s hope the next two weeks of school holidays continue on in the same vein.

Finally here is a Baby sized T-Shirt for a yet to be born baby on the other side of the world.  This is the Aussie native that I managed to sketch and stitch – hopefully tasteful rather than kitch.

What’s keeping you busy at the moment?

  1. Love, LOVE the little red t-shirt! Not kitsch at all! I really like that wooden letter too, what a great birthday gift idea. I wonder if I can find those in the UK?

  2. Your kids are on holidays? Lucky them! I’ve got another week of school… I’ve been ‘Acting Head Teacher’ for the last week and a half, and will carry that through to the end of term… My first time in the role – I’ve quite enjoyed it.

    HistoryBoy’s been in France and Belgium for the last week and a bit; he got to London yesterday, and has another week before he comes home… Lucky bugger – his work paid for half of it!

    Mum came down yesterday and we checked out the AWM‘s temporary photography exhibit, then did some gardening. Today, we hit a couple of markets (one with greater success than the other). We’d also planned to see Floriade, but it was quite windy yesterday, and we ran out of time today.

    v.cute koala!
