a few pics...

I will add a proper post soon I promise - things are just a bit flat out here this week - tends to happen from time to time with 3 kids and work and life in general as I am sure you all know!!

Plus in my efforts at being healthy I have injured my wrist- right hand- so am really limited with what I can do now for a little bit hopefully having it strapped up will sort it out in a day or two!

I thought I would add a pic of Indy's room- which those who know us can agree is usually a well lived in room!  She has been asking me to include her quilt and curtains which she helped construct and I did promise I wouldn't say she is always messy - as I guess she isn't just "busy" stray pink sock and Cats scarf still out on bed even though season is well and truly over - and all!! Maybe if she see's this online she may be more tempted to have a little late spring clean up? Nasty mumma aren't I!!

Out to the shops quickly now.... then some eyes and faces for Mr Rabbit to take care of- see how far I get with those with my wrist.

What have you all been doing this week?

A happy Tuesday

I have had a great day - have managed to get lots done even with Miss 8 home from school unwell. 

I must admit the first half hour was spent with me doing a lot of staring into space trying to remember what it was that I wanted to get done.............this seams to becoming more of a habit these days.

But once I got started today I was onto a good thing- cup day and all- well my first bit of news was that my horse I had in my other works sweep was the one scratched- but I won $130 for that so not too bad I guess!

Back to production line today- I managed to complete my designs on some new softie's toys I have been contemplating for a while- Mr Rabbit and Miss Dolly- designed their patterns and cut out pieces and put together 3 of each, they just need their faces and filling now - then I was kinda over them and needed a break from them for a bit...

So onto some more little miss skirts for upcoming market and summer stock for the shop- 7 more all up so am happy with that also and I have tomorrow to get onto some more allsorts purses and fab badges.....hope to be as productive as today!

The wind here was insane today with rain literally coming in sideways in what seemed like great bit waves crashing against the windows upstairs- and we don't live near the beach...

What have you all been up to today?

Hope your days was productive as mine...

Pip's meme this weeks theme - Blog HQ care of Ninon

This is mostly my HQ's ; my trusty pfaff, indy's janome behind and overlocker, a few unfinished and current projects on the go and inspiration board I have decided needs an up date- love doing this makes me feel all fresh again, even though technically a lot of blogging and PC work is done from my fav possie on the couch- my sister can vouch for this!! 

As well as the dinning table which is also a grand working spot and another fav of mine as its a super large square table where I can spread out and also has great light and is super warm in winter and airy in summer not to mention close to the fridge for a drink stop- maybe I need to relocate the dining area and move in there??

I also have been known to have a sewing table - a great vintage green old school desk- in the lounge area upstairs which is a. warm and b. has ace views of the mountain.  So to be perfectly honest I have kinda taken over the whole house with my HQ's....hmmm ah well tis all good and I haven't moved into the kids bedrooms yet!! Although they have the best views of the garden.....

Thanks again Pip for hosting & Ninon for theme. 
 Might go check out some more HQ's now.

Happy week wishes to you all :)
