Snowy Sunday

Who doesn't have to drink coffee while sewing?? I do, litres of the stuff. I had a lovely day completing a project that I have been trying to finish for weeks, a baby blanket for the little man featured here....

I have had a great weekend. Friday and Saturday where great sewing days and I got quite a bit of sorting out done..

First I needed to have a cleanup, dear husband bought me a little gift.. I had been complaining for a while (not like me! - ha ha) about the lack of drawer space, so he got me a little trolley and it is fabulous, I feel like a hairdresser, it has all my vitals and I can have it beside me no matter which machine I am using.... Love it....

So onto the blanket for little Rory. I chose the brown birdsfeather and then which check??? Oh go I procrastinate.... I went for the bottom one in the end..

First I digitised his name into an applique and got that bit on the go..

Then a bit of a squareup. and start on the edging.

Fold over the edges and mitre the corners, then stitch down ..

Today is another story. It is freezing. There is no other description than wintry. I am trying to decide on some designs to make up for summer and I just cant wrap my head around the whole concept. So onto Plan B. The kids are driving me insane. They are sick of being indoors, so a quick phone call to the tourist information centre and ask if it had been snowing up in the Grampians. The answer was a delightful 'YES, It still is!!!".

That was it, dish up the homemade soup, scoff down a banana each, Hubby grabbed a cooler bag full of snacks, I grabbed the coats and the girls got their gloves. Off we went in search of "very rare snow" as Miss 6.5 pointed out.

The ambient temp on the car said 3 degrees as we made the 10km climb to the car park.

We were passing cars coming down covered in snow, then it began snowing on the car as we drove.. Awesome!!!

The kids were so excited they would hardly wait to put on the winter woollies. It was amazing.

Miss P was so thrilled to have the biggest snowball, she waited just for the right moment and planted it on dad when he wasn't looking!!! Cheeky bugger..

We didn't stay long as it was bloody freezing.....
