Last week and few of the stitching ladies had show and tell. Janet is so amazing at sewing gorgeous retro clothes for her 3 littlies and herself. I don't know how she finds the time but she does an amazing job.

I know! I shouldn't be starting new things when there are many to finish but....it was just too tempting. I have started Here There and Everywhere by Anni Downs. I decided to use my stash so am getting it as a BOM with the pattern and the wool pieces each month. It is harder to use your stash, I am finding but am pleased with my choices and think they look ok. Here are the blocks that make up the first part.

Paddy and I headed to Sydney in June for the craft show at Darling Harbour. We enjoyed an afternoon of shopping, lunch and browsing on Thursday afternoon and then went to the show on Friday. There were some lovely stalls and lots of amazing quilts to see. We especially enjoyed and learnt lots from Kelli from Cutting Cloth. She did demonstrations of raw edge applique and quilting on her stall. Must have a go!!! I bought the gloves she uses and some special fusible web so will definitely try it soon.
It was lovely as always to catch up with Anni and Pete Downs on the Hatched and Patched stall. It is such an inspiring stall! Very special to catch up with Chooky who was working on the stall as well.

There were a few celebrations in June. Little miss turned 4! How amazing. It is getting harder to get photos these days but here are a few. She shared her party with her friend Xavier and it was to be at a park but it was a freezing day so it ended up being at Alice's house! The two mummies did a fantastic job of the rainbow cake.
Last weekend, Ben and Sam celebrated their 6th birthday (a week early). Boys' parties are so different! They did all have a wonderful time. Mummy had done such an amazing job preparing Lego themed food!
We wouldn't want little Jack to miss out so here are a few recent ones of him.
