Wassup?

Well, today is officially my last day of school holidays. I work all weekend and the babies go back to school on Monday. Which means today was my last sleep in *waahhhhh And I can’t see any possibility for a sleep in for the next month or so either! *double waahhhhh! I do SO love my sleep ins – can you tell? And more to the point, I love my late nights before the sleep ins. So I guess I have to go to bed earlier. Which encroaches on my ‘me time’. Which often includes my sewing time.
My boys aren’t very happy to be going back to school either. especially Mstr 10. It is his last year of primary school and he senses the effort required is about to go up haha
He is going to be school captain this year!!
We are incredibly proud πŸ™‚

Anyhow. Here is a little of what I have been up to over the school holidays. If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen some of these.
img_1365^ I have a loooong way to go with these cute Granny Squares. I think I’m going to sash with cornerstones to add to the size a little. I love it so far πŸ™‚
img_1530^I have joined in with Molli Sparkle‘s Honey Pot Bee! Here are my versions of the Starflower Block. Molli’s January block choice (via this Ellison Lane tute). I could totally see myself making a whole quilt with this block. It’s so easy and effective!
img_1528-2^Here is my version of the Strawberry. It’s Angie from Gnome Angel‘s January block choice (via this Skyberries tute) I couldn’t resist including the cute little fussy cut strawberry.

Kate is making a quilt out of heaps of different Teal X blocks to raise money for Ovarian Cancer.

I think I’m kinda up to date with sharing. I hope to do some paint-y furniture things once the kids go back and I get some spare time (haha what’s that?? πŸ˜‰ )
Do you play on Pintrest? There is a world of inspiration on there! You can find and follow me HERE if you’re interested. Forewarned tho, you might literally lose hours of your life browsing Pintrest πŸ˜‰
Anyhow, hope you have a great day, see you soon!
KATE Sig for Manic MumdaysP.S. I am trying to sew without buying this year! So all of these were in my stash, a bundle I’ve had for a while for the Granny Squares and scraps mainly for the rest.

  1. All lovely! You’ve been working hard AND having fun by the look of it! I hadn’t got round to posting about your gorgeous X blocks yet, but I might actually put in a link to your post in my next one, if that’s OK? That way, everyone can take a look at all the other lovely stuff.

    • Thanks! I am enjoying making it, but never seem to have enough time!
      haha yes, I am the same – can’t resist a good sale! πŸ˜€ Sadly (or luckily?) I just don’t have the funds this year. It will be good to use up some stash, I am also destashing some. I have faaaaar too much anyhow πŸ™‚
