Tula Pink Charm Swap ~ Quilt Along

Towards the end of last year I participated in the Tula Pink Charm Swap run by the fabulous Ms Midge.
OMG!!! They are so pretty!
After each Charm Swap there is a Charm Along!
And here is my contribution :IMG_8088 (2)It’s only the top right now, but I have a backing in the works and will keep going til it’s done – I’m determined not to add it to my UFO pile 😉
It is 49″ x 74″ { 125cm x 188cm}
It would make a gorgeous single bed quilt but since I don’t have a single bed to use it on, {except the boys and they won’t part with their Batman quilts for a girly one! haha} I think it’ll make a nice sized throw or couch quilt for meeeee!.

I am also pledging to get cracking on the aforementioned UFO pile! There are a couple of half {or more} done pieces, so I am going to keep plodding along and get some finished soon 🙂

I’ll endeavour to get my holiday pics up soon – we had a fantastic time staying at Manly Beach, Sydney!! And hubby was very surprised 🙂
Hope you have a fantabulous day!

Oh dear 😔 My computer has a few problems and I can’t use it – I am doing this on my phone and hope to God it works out … I will take it into my computer guru to work his magic tomorrow and fingers X’d it’s back by the time we are home *sigh*

 

When I build a home I want THIS reading nook!

Hope you are all happy and well!

I had a lovely evening out with one of my favourite friends tonight!
I am so thankful for some of the people in my life!
This was Suzie and I on Christmas Day 🙂
Kate n SuzeIt feels like we’ve been friends forever! And she is the kind of friend that we can talk daily or not for weeks or even months and things flow and are comfortable and we pick up exactly where we left off. I am lucky enough to have a couple of these kind of special friends in my life ❤
Hope you had a wonderful Saturday, and an even better Sunday!

Hmmmm I had a wonderful afternoon at work today, so I am feeling in a pretty positive mood already! I had my appraisal and all was very positive. It was busy and I had a couple of favourite customers in … and I guess it really helps that we have a holiday looming! 😀

Hope you are having a wonderful day! ❤

I didn’t send this properly it seems so you’ll be getting this on Tuesday instead of Monday … ooops!
We are so lucky to have found the perfect furbaby for our family! He comes in the form of a Lab x Golden Retriever who at 3 is still a big puppy … But we love him immensely! He fits right in with us and for the most part is a good boy 🙂
365P 11Here he is in one of his first photos on his first afternoon with us 🙂
This is what he looks like now :
IMG_4097He is as crazy as he looks! haha

There’s nothing better than a pyjama day to clear the mind!
This is how I spent a lot of today.
365P 8Sure, I did a little housework, as you can see there is a pile of folding half done in the background and I vacuumed and mopped while the boys were out this morning. But on the whole it was a lazy, comfy day and I enjoyed it immensely! I am now all recharged and ready for a huge weekend at work 🙂
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
