Weekly Update

It has been an eventful week. I had to go to Albury last monday for some more Moles to be taken off my back, I am pretty sure that all is well though.
Thursday I went to Canberra to the Craft & Quilt fair. Jess had to come with me of course because she is still on "Mummy's Milk" but she was such an angel. We drove the 1.5 hrs to Tumut and caught the bus the rest of the way (2hrs more) which was great as I got to have a sleep on the way. I had a wonderful time, took in a couple of talks, learnt a great deal and spent all the money that I'd saved especially for this trip.
Now for these 2 photo's.

This is Sam inside his new Cubby House that my mum had someone build for him. It's like a little house and is even almost exactly the same colours as our new house. A few of our neighbours saw it go past on the truck when it came home and they all thought it may be for Marcus when he is in the "Dog House" well you never know I guess. Jess is there too in her farm pram. It's nice and green at the moment cause we have had a bit of rain the last few months. We still need heaps more rain before summer but here's hoping it keeps coming. Our water tanks are full and the Dams are looking good at least.

And this pic is Jess sleeping right now as I type, I wanted to get one of her sucking her fingers but she dropped them before I could get the camera out. She has no idea what to do with a dummy but loves her fingers, oh well whatever helps soothe I guess.

Now an update on other things...

Water only challenge has been good a bit hard to remember when I go to my inlaws for morning tea each day so I have left strict instructions with Bev to just give me a cup of hot water. A few people have said that they couldn't do it, don't worry I may not make it yet. The good thing is I don't drink alcohol at all and I rarely keep softdrink in the house. I do however love a coke every now and then so Iwill miss that on occasions I am sure.

Soap sales have skyrocketed all of a sudden with a new wholesale order so I really have to get stuck into production, and with Christmas coming up it's a busy time of year judging on last year.

I am in a couple of swaps which is forcing me to make time to be creative, I am in the process of making a house mini quilt (max 15"), a summer quilt (max 24"), a friendship bag and collecting goodies for an avent swap.

The quilt that I finished last month for the Footy club auction sold quite well so I was happy with that.

Nothing else to report really, just trying to keep up with housework and get some creativity done everyday. I'd rather be sewing really...

Your Mum made the cubby house? OMG!!!! Fantastic. It will be well loved and well used I'm sure.

Sorry we couldn't catch up at the craft fair this year. Sounds like you had a good time.
