Claire from Little Fish Creations kindly encouraged me to learn how to use an over locker. My fear, I realised was unfounded... Look what I made with her support and encouragement... I had a GREAT day with Claire and am rather pleased with myself. The Little Man is particularly pleased with the trains... toot toot!

I have finished this book. Book club is tonight and I am at home. Been struggling with a head cold the last two days. Damn it. I love the socialness of this group of ladies. I enjoyed it "immensely darling". Would only change one thing. Wonder what the next book will be?

The lovely lovely Jan visited us today with her cute little one. We talked about rag quilts and many other things. I am still in the process of adding more blocks. A last minute decision. I loved how she binded her rag quilt. Nothing like I have seen before. Worth the wait. Must be patient Sarah...

It has been raining and windy here all day. I decided to get out in the garden this morning as I wanted to get the seedlings in. Not having much luck with seeds (grrr). Worried I am missing prime vegie growing time. Discovered the cherry tree is having its largest crop ever. Must remember to cover it before the cherries change colour this year.

Most movies don't seem to have that effect on me... The last one that really sucked me was The Source Code and there was one before that but cannot remember its name... (similar style of movie)
The gift of patience. Or if I was being really greedy a magic wand!
3. What's your favourite way to wake up and what's the first thing you do?
A sleep in (like past 9:00!) and feeling refreshed. I roll over and give hubby a hug and contemplate my day. Usually by now you will hear "Mummy? DADDY!" coming from The Little Mans room...
Scrapbooking, stitching, knitting, quilting, a bit of most things... even if I only did it for a short period like pottery.
Putting the Little Man to bed and checking work emails.
Oh gosh I am not sure. It was recent but cannot remember why!
7. What did you want to be when you were little?
I honestly cannot remember. I am sure it switched weekly. Still not even sure employment wise I am want I am destined to be...
8. What is your current favourite TV program?
Australian Story, The Slap, Crownies, Packed to the Rafters, United States of Tara, One born every minute (only because I can sit there and appal the midwives care - I am a midwife)
Actually I like Sarah. I would prefer my middle name being Jane than Ruth...
10. What characteristics do you hate about yourself?
