Spring has Sprung

It feels like the first day of Spring here today.

I walked out into our yard to find our only deciduous tree is in bloom.

Indigo was being her sweet little self ;)

Malakai was rocking out on the trampoline.

And we collected 3 eggs from our chickens, first time since March..


AND NOW . . .


And now just kicking back doing 2 of my 3 favourite things, having a coffee from my new machine and surfing Facebook :-) The 3rd being a little craft . . . which I will be enjoying later tonight.
PS. And . . . did you notice, I finally got myself a beautiful camera :-)

Looks like another month has passed

And no action from me in blogging land.

I am on Uni holidays at the moment and here I was thinking about all the craft I would get done . . . well . . . ummmmmmmm . . . didnt really happen. Been too busy catching up with all the things I didnt get to do when I was studying ;)

I did finish my hat, and LOVE IT!! The pic is rather bad as I still dont have a camera :( I think its been almost a year. I really need to get one. But alas, they cost money :(

You can have a look at it on Rav if you want to see some more pics. I want to make another one in grey and perhaps a red one too ;)
My Uni is going well, I managed to pass all my units with is great. I didnt get HD's but hey . . . I dont have to repeat the units ;) Next semester is coming very soon. I am honestly not looking forward to it. Its just so hard!
Alright, enough from me, off to stalk some of your blogs ;) xxx

Time Flies . . .

When your having fun ;) Is that the way the saying goes. I feel like every post I put up here lately is about how much time has passed.

I have just finished off my first exam for my first year of study to become a Midwife. So glad thats over. I have another in a week and have been so motivated to study - NOT - LOL

So, this is what I have been working on instead ;)

Not the greatest picture :( Am sooo looking forward to getting a camera ;)

So, what is it ;) Its a Gretel hat for me. You can find it here on Rav as well.

Will tell you more about it when I have finished it, in 6 months - LOL

A little (big) skirt

I made this little skirt last weekend for a GF's daughters 1st birthday. Turns out that its not so little afterall as I didnt use a pattern and just sort of cut and hoped for the best ;) Other than the fact its more of a size 3 or 4 its pretty cute.

(I have no idea why its upside down, sorry)

Name Tag Swap - part 2

This is the second half of the name tag swap. I made this one for Liesl from Hoppo Bumpo. The name tag swap is part of the "Sew it Together" weekend in Melbourne. You can find a link on my side panel :-)

Totally Awsome Laptop Decal

OH WOW OH WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I saw a lap top decal a few months ago and then couldnt for the life of me remember where I saw it. The lovely Jane from Edith & Elizabeth on Etsy offered to make one for me.
I received them in the mail today and they are exactly what I wanted!!!!!!! They are just so super cool :) :)
Jane was so helpful and patient along the way, I can not recommend her enough. THANK YOU JANE!!!!

PS. The Decal is Apple Green, its hard to see in the picture though. I also got a red and blue one for when I feel like a change :)

Name Tag Swap

I am attending an event called Sew it Together which I am super excited about. Part of the event Gypsy is a name tag swap. I received my swap about a week ago but havent had a chance to post as we've been having PC issues (whats new hey ;) LOL)
Anyway, so this is what the awsome Andi sent to me. I love it soooo much! Thank you :)

Not sure if you can see much in the pic (still dont own a camera :( ) but her little blog card that she sent matches as well!! Its all so cute. Thank you again :)

So whats been going on?

So, what been going on in your world?

HEAPS has been going on here. One of which is NOT finishin the kids backpacks :( I have all the supplies, everything is cut out, the front panel is done but thats as far as I got before I started uni.

So, now I am a part time uni student which is like full time to me. Finding time between being a mum is proving to be quite hard.

Also, I am starting a new job :) Melbourne rep of Babes in Arms (Ergo baby carrier).

Will try and update you with some pics of my babies soon.

Lazy Days Hat

With the start of the school year my 2 babies started day care. Gee, it was a hard decision to make to send them. I had always imagined staying home with them till they both started school but impatient me got a bee in my bonet and applied to study Midwifery at ACU in Melbourne. I was super excited to be accepted but at the same time a little apprehensive about the changes it would make to my life. Gee, I bet you are starting to wonder what this has to do with the Lazy Days Hat - LOL

So, I start uni in a few weeks and am going to study 2 days a week to start with. So, the kids got sent off to day care last week for the first time . . . this meant they needed new hats of course ;) I am in the process of making them bags also. I will post more about that later.

So, here they are, 2 super sweet reversible Lazy Days Hats for Malakai (Medium size) and Indigo (small size).

I had a little bit of an issue with cutting so I had to sew the little strip of Robot Ribbon from Crafty Mamas to make the fabric stretch. Oh, also, if anybody knows who the designer is of the Robot fabric, I would love to know. I love it so much and only have a bookmark size piece left :(
