This blog is a bit of a ramble through my life. There's a lot about quilting and textile arts, a sprinkle of my family life and some of my thoughts and ponderings. We currently live aboard an old wooden 1945 Navy boat, called MV Cerego, so you'll find me writing about that too. Welcome aboard!

"Can I take a picture, Mum?"

Yes, my car is filthy.  My excuse is that I live down a dirt road!
Sure.  Why not?  Especially when you take such sweet pictures!  I don't know what it is about this picture, but I love it.  The three year old took it while we were waiting at school for the six year old to finish up.

The front of a wee bassinet quilt for the maternity unit.

I've been single parenting for over a week now while Hubby takes a well-earned holiday hunting roaring stags in the bush.  I have the utmost respect for any parent doing it solo.  I'm only just managing to squeeze in some quilting here and there.


And here's the back.
But when he comes back I'm winging my way down to Queenstown for the Remarkable Quilting Symposium!  (Insert image of me clapping my hands with glee!)  I'm busy gathering my supplies, packing my bags and making sure the house and animals are as sorted as can be for a smooth takeover by Hubby.  Five more sleeps to go!!
