A pic for Mum

Mum knitted Jack a jersey and sent it up the other day. And it finally got cool enough to try it on for size. And yes Mum it fits perfectly. So here's a pic for ya. He is just about to wear it out to preschool.

Vintage Country Fair

Yesterday we headed to the Vintage Country Fair at McLeans Island. It was really cool - felt kinda like being in a time warp - everything was really old - even had old fashioned candy floss. We went with some friends and the kids had a ball. The kids rode some penny farthing bikes, and went on the old train. They also rode the little model railway ones - which I think they enjoyed more than the big train. Jack went on a carousel - which Steve and I both thought he was going to fall off- but no he held on for dear life (was having a ball as well - grinning at us every time he went round). There were heaps of old cars, motorbikes, machinery - It was boys heaven. We have a busy week ahead of us with the wiggles Concert next weekend so expect photos next weekend. I am hoping to post some pics of some sewing I have been doing at some point during the week as well. And of course only six weeks till this baby is due to be here - not that I expect it to come on time :-)

Patchwork and an update!!

Well I have started patchwork classes in the hope that I can make a quilt for Jack now that he is in a big bed. And then hopefully I can post some pics of his cool decorated room. The quilt is coming together nicely and hopefully on Friday after class Thursday night I will be able to share some pics of some of it. I should have a couple of blocks together by then. I am slightly nervous as this is my first quilting experience and I am worried that I will hate it when it is finished.
It has been ages since I updated as I have been doing heaps of relief teaching before this baby makes an appearance. Hard to believe that I only have 8 weeks to go. I have so much to organise and make. Jack starts preschool next Tuesday. Which is exciting. He will be doing 2 afternoons, so hopefully that will be my sewing time, and it just happens to coincide with him dropping his afternoon sleeps. He has had 1 afternoon sleep this week and a couple of little naps in the car, but we tried for an hour and half to get him to have a sleep the other day and he was still quite happily reading and talking to himself after that time so I decided it was probably time to get up :-)
