I spent some time with old friends who were visiting us from Wagga, their kids and ours had a blast together. I had a fun girls day out with Anna as a special school holiday treat and we went to a really delicious sushi train restaurant for lunch. Yesterday the girls and I lazed in bed and watched episodes of Ben & Holly's Little Kingdom (anyone else's kids obsessed with that show?) on the iPad until 10.30am. So a good time was had by all.
|A busy week with the kids means this pouch gets a work out. I keep baby wipes, tissues and band aids in it!|
I still flicked through my Bloglovin feed from time to time and scrolled through Pinterest. Even when I'm not actively making I still feel the need to see what others are up to!
This is what I'm keen on this week:
I'd like to a be a bit more creative with my quilts so I'm thinking a mini would be a good way try some new skills. I'm planning to make this one and go hard with some serious pinks and grey as the background.

I haven't bought fabric online in a long time. Hard to justify the shipping expenses, although I have been sorely tempted by this sweet little bundle I found here. So pretty and I love the gold highlights. Fabric with bling!

My overlocker hasn't been used much lately. It's not a cheap piece of equipment and I'd like to use it more and feel as comfortable with it as I do with my regular machine. Truth be told I'm still a bit intimidated by it. Apart from serging seams and making ruffles / gathering fabric, I really don't have a handle on my overlocker's capabilities. So I'm buying the Craftsy Beginner Serging class (which is on sale right now yay!) and I'm looking forward to watching the videos and trying some new overlocking moves.
Today I finished that bag that I mucked up last week and I also finished that quilt top that I'd been procrastinating over. So I'm feeling a good sense of achievement. Now I will retire for the evening and watch cooking shows on SBS Demand - Luke Nguyen's Vietnam - my favourite!
Months ago I finished a quilt and I'll be posting a tutorial sometime this week hurrah! Here is a sneak peek:
Have a great weekend!
