Introducing Pat!!

I love school holidays...I have spent some time with my new little dog...Pat...he is very playful and a pleasure to have around the home. He keeps me company! Over the holidays we went away for a few days so Pat had to have a sleep over at Grandma's....Pat does not like chooks!! Pat went on chain!!
 While we were away we got to paddle down the Mary River at my brother in laws. We all had a turn and ended up with a wet behind. Nice!!
 We also had a go at ice skating......lots of fun......this I managed to stay upright.
I was, according to the girls very slow and stayed near the edge. Rachel fell over quite a few times and ended up with a purple knee and Kirsten did the old sympathy fall......someone fell over in front of her and she fell over as an act of sympathy;)
 We also got to meet our newest nephew, Fletcher. Here is Ruby showing off her new brother.
Now, I don't normally take a photo of my washing but todays was particularly impressive. I washed a quilt to go in our quilt show on the weekend and had a few others that I washed and I thought what a great photo this would Ta Da!!
I have made a few cards yesterday that I will add to the blog rather I hope to see you back soon.

Christmas Quilt done and dusted...

 ....YEAH!!! I am super organised for Christmas this year....I have my Christmas quilt finished. (Nobody knows that I was hoping to have it finished for last Christmas:)
This quilt was a BOM in Homespun Magazine last year. I changed the colours to suit and I have changed some blocks slightly along the way. I am super happy with the finished quilt.

Bits and Pieces

Off the page....
A canvas for hubby.
A range of photos from our cattle, pets and GRASS!!
Just to show that sometimes grass can grow. (In the middle of a drought sometimes you doubt the ability of the land to ever grow grass again.)
 I saw this scrapbook layout on pinterest and wanted to try it for myself. I used the Big Shot to make the circles and I have used distress ink (walnut stain) to ink the edges of all the circles.
 More scrapbooking....Happy snaps from school trip!
Hope that you can get some photo's scrapbooked or created into something off the page.
