Back to School with Santa.

After two months of lazy mornings and minimal driving I’m back to being on the road for several hours a day. The inadequacies of the public transport system are never more apparent than when you are driving three siblings to three separate sets of classes each day. I’m absolutely knackered!

I’ve just got back from picking up No. 1 Daughter from the train station and have flopped on the lounge; I think I’m sitting on a knitting needle but at this point I don’t care LOL. There is yet another message on the machine from a real estate agent promising the sale of our house for a fantastical price, today’s dishes are piled in the sink, and I need to come up with something for dinner.

Instead I’m going to have nap with Santa and his crew. The three siblings can take control tonight!

Congratulations to Terri Sue, Sabine, and Melody who each won a copy of the Tootsie quilt pattern, and to Leslie who won the $20 gift voucher. I’ve sent you all an email/message.

I’m sewing backing fabric together tonight which always make me grumpy. I have a small sewing space and it always feels like I’m struggling to sew giant sails together instead of relatively small lengths of fabric LOL.

Have a lovely weekend, see you tomorrow! toni xx

Come back this time tomorrow for Day 2 when we’ll be more organised. Things got a bit hairy with our neighbours in the wee small hours of this morning and we’re all a little wrecked and fed up. xx

Henry is not a Mermaid.

He’s a nerdy Moose and he’s in our Etsy store tonight. Henry the Moose is a hard enamel pin.

– Approx. length – 3 cm (1 inch) and width – 2.5cm
– Metal + enamel pin – Gunmetal metal detailing.
– Smooth shiny surface.
– Glitter antlers and suspenders.
– Henry has a butterfly clasp.

A Mermaid’s Tale is in our Etsy store tonight too for the special introductory price (PDF) of $5. I’m sorry about the terrible photograph, it’s much nicer in real life. I’ll take more photos when the plumbers and electricians have finished in the house.
Remember the hot water system blow-out? Well it’s caused some major issues, and we are replacing the plumbing and some wiring throughout the whole house. The disruption and mess is huge and I think I may actually faint at the bill :oP
The house is almost 60 years old, so it had to be done eventually. The catastrophic failure just happened sooner than we had hoped LOL.
Have a great weekend everyone, toni xx

Ps. The free dollhouse quilt will be available this weekend too.
