I'm finally swooning

While shopping with my hubby's Nan in Spotlight, I picked up some Denyse Schmidt fabrics.  Nan thought they were so gorgeous and said I was such a clever kid (nice at 41), to choose fabrics that look so nice together.... she didn't know they're from the same DS range.
Nan's 90th is coming up in a week or so, sadly we can't get to her place up in NSW due to the floods, but I know she will love her swoon quilt.  
Here is the start.....

Tick tock

Okay, like everyone I am extremely time poor... hence only blogging once a fortnight.  My work life is out of control, I've taken up another hobby, I've joined two committees and I'm learning another language so I am quite taken with baby quilts at the moment.  Little pieces come together on my board and they can be pieced so quickly.  I love it!! It's satisfying to finish something, albeit, something very small.

I was laughed at by a friend the other day when I told her about my Gant chart for my unfinished or planned quilts.  It tells me when I can start and when I need to finish a quilt.  For instance, I know I have until the beginning of March before I have to start something I want to finish at the end of April..... I think it's pretty cool..... but then again, I am a bit of a nerd..... hmmmm not quite Sheldon Cooper, more like Leonard Hofsteader.

Time flys

We've been having a big clean out around here, (except for Mumma's sewing room) and I came across a book in my son's book shelf that we read nearly every night for years and years.  I sat on the floor and read it to myself... the end I was a blubbering mess.  I was given this book when we had Bravo's Great Grandkid, 8 years ago.

It's a little tale about the love a parent has for their child.

I know I am banging on about it, but this is a fabulous book that will make you cry.....

"I'll love you forever, 
I'll like you for always, 
as long as I'm living, 
my baby you'll be."
