Hi Everyone,
Thank you for visiting today!
I wanted to share my experience making Tu-Tu's for some very sweet young girls...I maybe a little biased...Above is the after shot of one of the Tu-Tu's and below is the in progress shots. What a mess.
Rachel asked if I could make an outfit for the school fete, I quizzed my good friend "outback crafter" and we came up with a great idea for their costumes. Then after a few grey hairs........3 TU-TU'S were made.

Here are the three completed Tu-Tu's.

On another note....our cows are calving. The baby calves are so cute at this stage.

Wishing you all a happy Easter.

Home Sweet Home

Hi there,
Sorry about these can really see how much I love to iron.
Here's what I am working on at the moment. I made one for my sister awhile back and had planned to make one for myself one day..... So a few weeks back I started my very own "Home Sweet Home" wall hanging. I just have to make the whale on the roof of the middle house look like a bird, iron it and frame it.
I  thought that I would hang it in the spare bedroom....but Rachel thinks it should be hung in the lounge room. Any suggestions...

I also made myself a bag for work. It will hold my lunch and a folder in the front pocket to keep all my papers neat.

The bunny has found a home...he is now the remote bunny!!

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Inspired by .....

Hi there,
I have been inspired by some crafty people.  
 Tracey goes to our local craft group, UFO Crafters, and has been making some very cute and adorable critters for a worthy cause. I stumbled across the pattern for these bowling bunnies in among my patterns and felt the need to create....
Random sunsets.....I love this time of the day. The purple and pink sunset was seen on the way to UFO Craft one Tuesday night!!

Inspired by other crafters...Thank you!!

Not too sure where this little bunny will live...
The idea for the pin cushion below was found on Pinterest. I loved this quote and just had to have one for me!

You never know when you may inspire others. So on that note....I'll keep sharing my creative bit's and pieces. 
Happy Crafting

Quilty cards

Hi, I hope that you are all enjoying the rain. I find that I am most productive when it is rainy weather. Today is NOT the case. I have been ??? not sure actually where today went.
These cards are cards that I made some time ago and have recently photographed. When I looked at them to title this blog post I thought they reminded me of quilts...I hope you like them too.

These last two cards do not remind me of quilts but thought I would add them in aswell as I do love the colours.
Happy Crafting
