Family & Creative update

Just a quick update as I have been my usual slack self at giving the world our latest.

Some photo's for you
This is a quilt that I am making for Sam's first big bed. It will end up big enough to cover a single bed. It is quite bright at the moment so I am hoping to find some border options to calm it down a bit. If anyone has any suggestions please feel free to leave me a comment.

This next photo is just a beautiful flower that has popped out near one of our gates. It is an absolute miracle as it has only been watered by our very sporadic rain that we have had over the last 24 months but the plant is fresh and as you can see it has lovely flowers. I am hoping to try a new art quilt technique with the photo's I have taken.

And lastly what would a blog post be without a photo of my 2 beloved boys. I was outside hanging out the washing and Sam was digging in the sand with his little shovel. Marcus was about and came to take Sam off my hands for 1/2 hr and I could not resist this photo. Some quick stats for everyone. Sam will be 2 on 6 April, upon measuring him yesterday we discovered that he is already 90.5cm high (that's 3 feet pretty much) with another 2 months to go before we can do a estimate of what his finished height will be. For those that do not know apparently you measure them at 2 years old and then double it and that is around about what they will end up.
