A little bit of this and a little bit of that.....

Wow, I can't believe that another 2 weeks have gone by and I haven't made a post. It has been a hectic time getting ready for DD's 4th birthday. It is really hard to buy for a 4 year old. After many shopping trips, we finally decided on a princess scooter. She is really quite good on it. I think that it helps that it has 3 wheels and not just 2. Her little brother is keen to use it too but he does not know what to do with it just yet.

Hayley's birthday seemed to last for days and days. On Tuesday when she went to Kindy, I sent along little cakes to share with the class. They all sang Happy Birthday and she was very excited about her upcoming birthday. On Wednesday, the day before her birthday, we had a party with my sisters, Dad and their families.(They were unable to come on Thursday due to work committments). There was lots of presents to open, cake to be cut and fun to be had with her cousins.

Then on Thursday, THE BIRTHDAY DAY, we had a morning tea with 7 of her little friends. More cake, more presents, more fun!! The day ended with a trip to the doctors to get her 4 year old needles. Yes I know! How cruel of me to take my DD to the doctors on her birthday to get needles but it was the only time I would have!!
She wasn't very brave but a few jellybeans helped to take the pain away.

On Friday, I went to the first Christmas Craft Stall meeting for the kindy. I know it is a long time until Christmas but if we start on the projects now, it won't seem too much at Christmas time. I am going to make cards, tags, photo frames and photo albums for the stall. I have made my first album but it needs a little refining before I am happy with it.
Have to go now. The starving hoards are yelling for tea and it is nearly ready.

Went to the Paper Craft Festival today. It was pretty good and there was lots of great stuff there. Was a bit hard to see all that I wanted to because I had the 2 kids with me. I must say though, they were really well behaved while we were there. I know it must have been very boring for them just sitting in the pram not being able to touch anything. I bought lots of stamps this time. Have already made a very simple card using one of the stamps. I have also ordered a set of stamps that make patterns that look like bought paper. They use two stamps on top of each other to give a 3D effect. Can't wait for them to arrrive in mail next week.

Have finally finished Hayley's other quilt for her bunk beds. I am very pleased with how it turned out and Hayley thinks it is very pretty. I am not sure I want to make another shaggy quilt for quite a while yet. But am pleased that the kids both have two quilts for their bunk beds.

March Already

Where are the days gong? Another week is finished and I do not seem to have done anything! My DH has been home all week as this is his week off. Next week he will travel away again. I have been working on my Goddaughter's quilt for her birthday in early April. Unfortunately I am 4 fat quarters short. I have asked Spotlight to order me some more but so far I have not heard back from them. I don't know what I will do if I can't get them. I am also working on Hayley's second quilt. I am halfway through the 40 picture blocks- only 20 to go.
