and so the sun shines now in my backyard...

two posts in one day...hmmm that is a record for me

out of my jim jams and slippers

put away my bookfor a bit... it's a very good read by the by..

done all the housework (very small house - takes no time at all)...

ironing up to date, and washing on the line

had lunch with Rowing Man, went to pay and update the registration on my car, only to discover that my warrent of fitness ran out on the 4th - OOPS - usually the service people phone me and remind me that this is due - oh dear - how did that slip by? No WOF NO registration, quick phone call to the service people in Dunedin, and now it is booked in for Monday afternoon. Lets hope that I get back to Dunedin without passing any police cars on the way.... wish me luck!

Carole, these pikkies are for you, when we met at the Cherry Pie quilt retreat in Levin, you were busy stitching these little lovelies, so I have just taken these so I could share them with you... I just love this quilt, and I am quite a fan of Leanne Beasley,

this quilt is from her book Living the Dream and is so full of really cute philosophical sayings in little stitcheries, like this one...

and this...

and this..


this was one of last years efforts...

Nice quilt Shiree. Now I can visualise what Carole was doing. Very nice indeed.
Out of your jim jams, and two posts in one day, OMG its obviously a thriving metropolis down there and not the sleepy we place we originally thought-just joking hun!

Lovely quilt- I like the sentiments on the stitcheries and what cute PJs. I'm not dressed yet or put one post up let alone 2. LOL More coffee needed I think. :-)

Thanks for your comment.
Well done for doing the ironing and housework, they are what I should be doing at the momment!
How exiting that you are giving up being an RN, I'd quite like to give up being one too.

You've been a busy lady today. I love that quilt.
I want to wish your Mum a speedy recovery. That looks like it has to hurt bad. Prayers sent for her getting well fast.

Lovely quilt Shiree. Sorry to see the photo of your Mum. Her arm looks pretty bad. Hope she is on the mend now. Cheers for now.....

You are being productive! That quilt is amazing. I've made two of those and seeing yours inspires me to think about another!
