Needs a Name

You have to be fast to catch a lizard,
I found this one sitting in the strawberry patch catching some rays.

He is just so cute

Little Jack's preschool room's logo is very similar to this little lizard

So I thought I should catch him and give him to them

He just needs a name
Got any ideas?

Adara, a teenager? already?

Well not quite, her birthday is coming up.
My little girl will be 13 (I must be getting old)
She wanted a quilt so here is the top of it

Adara helped to design it :)

Each square has a strip of pink,blue, yellow and purple fabric.

There are four different blacks around each one

We were originally going to do each block as four different materials of the same colour

But decided we liked this better

Now she doesn't want it to be a quilt though as she is getting a feather doona from her Nanny.
I am going to turn it into more of a blanket.
Will post more when its done :)

Finally a Boy

Jack finally got invited to a boys party YAY!!!!
He went to Julian's 5th Birthday on Saturday.
They went ten pin bowling (don't envy the parents with 10 little boys to watch)
So I still wanted to sew the gift and found this at Noodlehead.
It seemed some what simple enough :)

Then I loaded it up with gift cards ($5 each)

I have no idea if he liked it as they didn't open the presents at the party :(
Jack liked though, so that will have to be enough for me :)

Skirts, Skirts, Skirts

Totally hooked
Here is my latest attempt.

It is a little different.

I gave it points like a tinkerbell skirt

My model is my beautiful Bianca she is almost 10
So significantly larger than the last few

I also used t-shirt material so it hangs quite heavy which is just how she likes it

Little Little Girls

I am totally hooked on making little girls clothes now.
They are quick and easy!!!

Here is another skirt 

A new top :)

That makes one cute set

So this set is size 2
I tried it on David, thought it best not take a photo.
He wasn't happy when I took it off him lol.

Now who to give it to?

My husbands other wife is having a baby

It's all right it's not his.
Martin doesn't really have another wife (we are Mormons so we just think that kind of thing is funny lol)
My husband is very smart he has worked out that if you want to do well at anything you need a woman helping you. Now I am pretty awesome but there are some things I can't do and study with him while he was at uni was one of those things, so he had Vanessa.
Did this make me jealous - you bet!!!!
I got over it though when I met her and she was nice, then she got married (not to my husband lol)and now she is having a baby.
I just had to make her a quilt when I heard the exciting news 
and here it is
and here is the back
Because this was a fairly simple quilt and only cot sized I did different quilting for each piece.
I am really happy with it :)

A very happy un ..... to you

Well I don't know what you did with the last couple of days but I did some un-sewing.
I picked apart my latest quilt and the resewed it.
I think I like it better now.
Time to do the floating borders.
I wonder how much more un-sewing I'll have to do :(
