A flower for Vicki

This is for Vicki, it's not a daffidil but a sunflower my 6 old son grow last year. It was 40cm across. I hope this cheers you up.

Vicki is the backbone ofthe craft group, organising swap, finding lost members, and getting rid of all that nasty spam. She is like a favorite Aunty, a old friend from school, or a foster mum.

Not craft but Bella Baby

This is the new addition to our house.


Sampler Swap

Here is my first square for the sampler swap. I am getting better. It has been a great learning curve doing these type of swaps, and the girls are all so encourging.

Nan's 80th Birthday Memory Quilt

I made this memory quilt for my Nan's 80th birthday, Nan has dementia, so I thought the photo's would be good for her.

There is photo's on it of my Grandfather "Dusty" with my kids, which makes this quilt extra special as he passed away a week after I gave it to her, but he saw it at loved it. It was the only present that she got that she remembered who gave it to her.

A thank you to Allie from Hazel's at Millthorpe for doing a great quilting job on it and in only a week.


The boys & I found these on a blog site, so one day last holidays we sat down and made them. The good thing is that the Boys 6 & 9 could do them by themselves, press studs for eyes, and made out of felt, to played with them for days and now they sit proudly on their "special shelf".

sally's bag

Sally is the first friend I made when we moved here, she is very outgoing and always great to see her and her 3 boys. I made this bag out of a pattern jorja sent me from the craft forum. It is a pattern by Kate Sykes & Suzie McDonald of Renmark craft Corner.
