Kiss Me Tender

Kiss Me Tender is what this rather large xmas bauble is called,it out of a magazine,Homespun Vol 9.No 7,it didnt take that long to make,it is designed by Emma Corbett and Lisa Harper of Buttonberry fame.

 I have started on my next swap for our FHFS wool or felt swap,i have just cut out 52 circles in wool blend felt,lol,i cheated and used the go cutter but it still took a little while.

I am off to stay with my sister in Portarlington for 2 1/2 days and then going to St Lenard's to stay with my buddy Sue and the Gisborne girls for a fun sewing weekend,and Thursday Sue and i are off to a patchwork group,i am so looking forward to these few days break.
I am off to get a huffer tomorrow the flu has come back and this time i am sure i have asthma,i have never had it before,but apparently it is common to happen with this flu.
On the way i will stop and have a visit with my DD2 and then visit the 3 patchwork shops in Geelong that i didnt know was there,so a fun cruisey day  and should be at my sister just before tea.
I hope you all have a lovely day.
cheers shez xx

Costumes and Kangaroos

 I have been busy with my GD's calisthenics costumes as the comps start soon.

Dad also hopes to go home from hospital today,thankyou for all your get well wishes
 We have had an abundance of kangaroos in our yard over the last couple of weeks,and one of them had quite a good size joey in her pouch,we try not to startle them when we go outside, as its very hard for the mother with the joey to jump the fences,hubby actually leaves the back gate open now for them ,we had one jump the fence about this time last year and her feet got caught on the top of the fence and she landed on her tummy and grazed all her pouch,we were hoping her joey was okay,our little GS Dempsey gets so excited when he comes here hoping to see a kangaroo.
