some crafty photos!

i know! about time i show some craft on this so called crafty blog!!

here are my gorgeous mug rugs that i have received from lynne - i love them both, but especially the more modern one.

she also included these gorgeous reusable fabric gift bags!  there is a tute on her blog if you want to create some too

now some blocks - this one is from robyn for me for last months christmas block swap

this i made for sharon in canada for this months swap

and this is my block for this month from the lovely leena for the quilting block swap

and the one that i made for her - man i found the mitred corners difficult!!

i also finished off my second Pay It Forward gift and that has been sent!  this is for Linden - a table runner

phew!  i think i am now up to date!
to finish a photo of the little human.  he loves to help out with everything, and as anyone who has ever had a 2 year old knows, that help can mean a huge hassle!! he he

he is desperate to help mummy with her 'craft' as he says, but i don't let him touch my machine.  so he found this hole puncher under my desk and a scrap of fabric and calls that his sewing machine.  he pushes the lever up and down on the fabric and then holds it up and says 'mmmmm'.  when i ask if he is happy with it, he says 'mmmm yes, very nice'.

such a cutie!!!!!

now tonight is FNSI, so i have to go and get everyone organised so i can sit down and sew!!! hope you get some done too

much love, pugs and kisses

some photos of my cuties

can't resist showing these off!

here are my two, last weekend. little human now nearly 2 and a half years old, and the puglet is now 12 weeks old

puglet has found her smile

and this is a series of photos from when we went to a cafe for my mum's birthday.  we all got coffees afterwards, and the little human got a babycino and a gingerbread man (his fave)

look everyone, ive got a gingerbread man!

isn't he beautiful?!

hello gingerbread man

i will love you forever!

and smother you with kisses

he got so attached to the gingerbread man that he couldn't eat him.  we had to take him home with us, and the little human held onto him in the car the whole way home!

too cute!

pugs and kisses

Vignette heaven

look what arrived in the post the other day!

this is the quartlery publication by my favourite design Leanne Beasley from Leanne's House.  Her stuff is SOOOOOO beautiful.  Maria was blogging about one of the great projects, and i had to get the latest issue, and the back issues (of course!)

and now i am hooked - i have read them over and over and over again, but stopped myself from starting anything until i have cleared some of my backlog of projects!

hope you have had some inspiration this week too

much love

p.s. it was a lovely day in adelaide today, and so we went to the park to feed the ducks - a very underrated kiddie activity!  here is the little human in full flight :)
