I have had the most wonderful week ... dear Anna who won the Lilly Pilly quilt has just delighted me time and time again with the most wonderful emails this past week ,,, I get the feeling that she is generally quite pleased with her win! I have enjoyed it so much that I would actually highly recommend that you go right now and make something ... anything and gift it to Anna you wont regret it I promise!
Apart from all of this excitement we have also had some excitement in our house ... little people generated excitement that is so delicious that it is contagious!!!
Our Benjamin lost his first top tooth ....
...now he looks like a dero!!! Apparently, according to Megan, there is a rumour going around the playground at school that the Tooth Fairy isn't actually real ... apparently some of Megan's friends think that it is actually their Mums and Dads who take the teeth and leave the money .... my little people thought that they would test this theory and hide Ben's tooth ... the hypothesis being that if the tooth wasn't gone and no money was left then it would definitely be the the parents as the Tooth Fairy would obviously know where the tooth was, even when it was hidden! Luckily our Tooth Fairy is a Super Sleuth!!!! Ben's tooth was gone in the morning and his nett worth was increased by $5!
Little Miss sweetie-pie Jessica ... is yet to loose a tooth. Poor Jessie has sat by and watched as her twin brother has lost 5 teeth and has added to his money box time and time again. Not even a hint of a loose tooth I'm afraid ... no instead Jessie has decided to do things a little different to the normal population ...
...she has decided to keep her baby teeth .... puts a whole new slant on hoarding doesn't it????
So other than these things what have I been doing? I have finished my little project that I showed you a peek of last week ...
This is Willow!
Willow is the project that we will be working on over here next month! I have bigger plans for Willow ... but you will need to wait a little bit for more on that. By the way Lorraine ... Joshua would like to know who Hettie is?
I also finished a little pillow ... a variation on Just for me ... from Pretty 'n Pink.
Poor Kitty has been waiting on this one for way too long now! It will be in the post on Monday Kitty!
I met a terrific group of girls on Thursday for day one of my second Patchwork House workshop.
I thoroughly enjoyed the day! I am really having fun with the workshops!
Now that I am doing things that finish past school pick up time the kids have have had to go to After School Care a few times ... they have been mostly very excited about this and have even asked if they could go on days when I'm home!!! However I think that the novelty has worn off for my Miss Jessie as she packed up, collected her backpack, donned her hat and sat waiting for me 1/2 an hour before I collected them this week ... mmm nothing like a little Mummy guilt!
And just to reek havoc with my girl's psyche I have taken on new teaching dates at Patchwork House for term one next year ...which will be on the 11th & the 25th of Feburary. The waiting list is almost big enough to fill the class so if you are interested make sure you give Kylie a ring! Garden Party, Love Birds & My Sweetheart are visiting Patchwork Hose for the next couple of weeks if you would like to take a peek and do some shopping at the same time :)!
I am also going to be visiting the Sunshine Coast in March of next year for a two day workshop at Patchwork Angel. I can't tell you how excited I am about this! If you are interested in coming along then please give Penny a ring! Also if you find yourself at the Patchwork Angel over the next month you will find Meg's Garden & Oh Christmas Tree visiting the store ...
... make sure you say hello!
There has been lots of finished projects added to the Flickr group since it started a couple of weeks ago so make sure you take a peek! Thank you everyone who has joined in I am really loving seeing your creations!
So that's it ... I now only have 6 days to finish off the space suits and build a space shuttle ... may the force be with me ... or should that be live long and prosper or ... maybe make it so number one! Or should I be looking for some help from the Ancients this week? ...Oh God someone stop me!!!!
Have a great week guys!
PS. Before you all go ... I was asked on Thursday to sign a copy of one of my patterns and a copy of the Homespun Magazine that featured Love Birds... and I had no clever little quip to add to my scribble. Apparently there are other designers that have very clever little ditties that they add when they sign their patterns. Help me out guys because I have now totally over thought this and I have NOTHING! Whoever comes up with an original, catchy, relevant, short comment for my to use in these situations will not only get my eternal gratitude and a big cyber hug ... but I will also send them the very first copy of Lilly Pilly once it is released next month!!! You've got until I next post ... so no pressure! :)
