Saturday's are AWESOME!!!

I have had the best day!
Two really good things happened today.
Firstly I had a photo shoot for Adara.
It was so much fun.
I did her hair and make-up
I've worked a little as a make-up artist but not for awhile now so that was fun in its self.
Then I got to help with the photo shoot, just simple stuff like helping Adara know where and how to stand.

The photos were done by Sosaia of  Makalo Photography

He took some good photos but what he did to the after is amazing.

Isn't that clever

We had a lot of fun!

The second thing was that I won my very first blogland giveaway! YAY!

Isn't all this stuff awesome!
A big thank you to Bec Johnson from Chasing Cottons.

Alright now I'm on a high gotta try to go to bed, wish me luck!

Gathered In

I know its been a quite a long time since my last entry. My excuse is going to be school holidays!
I do love that the government give me a 6 hour break each day from at least 3 of my children.
Not alot of quilting got done but that didn't stop me being creative

Yes that amazing track was built by me and that is Jack loving it!!!!

Well the kids are officially back at school so back to quilting!

Thought I should finish Kate Conklin's "Gathered In" pattern.

It looks quite nice sprawled across my bed, but here's a better look at it

Not bad for my 3rd quilt

This is the back - couldn't leave it plain

Now all that's left is to fold it up and send it to my sister Cheryle

If I can bear to take it off my bed, just kidding.

While I am happy with my efforts you should check out the original Gathered In by Kate Conklin
