This year Valentines is going to be sad and happy for me and the gremlins.  The oldest gremlin is away from work and will miss his, both junior gremlins birthdays and Valentines Day.  So its sad I don't get to spend the day with Richard, but he know I love him and I feel that every day should be a Valentines day.  Okay I am the one who forgets.........

The Boys are going to be my Valentines, yes they think its sad.  Too Bad..........

On the Upside, my Mum and Dad are celebrating 40years of marriage.  I spent the day decorating a cake.  Its a carrot fruit cake, the boys are happy about that.  I will post a picture this arvo, when its finished. 

So Happy 40th Anniversary  Mum and Dad


From Me and the other two Gremlins
Take care

Head bands are a go-go

Yesterday afternoon I was bored, hot and sticky.  At the moment here it is really humid.  I decided to make some headbands.  I didn't feel like spending heaps of time sewing, but my sewing room has air con.  I used my Lady Janyne expensive one as a template and modified it.  They all took less time than I expected, therefore my hair was up quicker and I was planning my next attack (quilt that is)....

I have a plan to finish another quilt this weekend, or maybe I will just start another.



Take care 

Work quilt


Done and dusted....

My New Baby....

On Saturday I cruised by my favourite second-hand shed.  It's amazing what I find there, and I love the Lions guys and girls they are great.  I happily strolled past the entrance and found this lovely baby.  I looked and went, "you need to come home with me, you need to be loved.".  The Lovely Lion Guys and Girls, put a sold sticker on it and it was mine!!!!!!  

Okay there was another lady wanted it, but she didn't get there first.  HAHA (Evil laugh) its mine. I'm not even going to tell you how much I paid, that is so wrong.  I feel that I am gloating.   Oh well I'm going too...........Think low............real low, Giant gremlin even smiled. Then he lugged it off to the car.

I had never heard of this manufacturer, and when I "Googled" I still don't know much.  So any help would be greatly appreciated.  I have never seen bodkins like it before.  It also works...

I'm off to work out how to conserve the docket I found in the tool box, Manchester on Thyme in 1953.  I am loving this baby, did I mention the wooden hardcase with working lock and keys.  

Did I mention the artwork......

Over my gloating now, thanks for listening because the gremlins are sick and tired of it.

Take care Suzy
