Girls weekend to Tilba part1

I'm having technical problems with this blog thing tonight, so sorry this post will be in two parts.  Maybe I'm trying to load too many photos?!?

Anyway, I just got back from a amazingly glorious weekend away with some of the most awesome girls in the world on our annual trip to Tilba down the south coast.  We did have a bit of rain, but only once we were safely inside.  LOTS and I can't stress that enough... LOTS of amazingly good food.  We had a couple of high tea's, an incredible roast dinner and divine desserts.  There was music, movies, puzzles, walks, food, drink, and lots of opportunities to take some photos with my new camera.  The above picture is the back yard of the place we stay in.  Is anyone else thinking Wandin Valley?!?!?!

Spring has definitely sprung in Canberra

I've been sitting out in my garden this morning it was just so glorious. The birds were chirping happily and I could feel the heat of the sun through the pergola. The garden is absolutely overgrown at the moment, cause we went away last weekend, so hopefully we'll get some time to neaten the garden up this weekend!   

Even though the garden is looking messy and overgrown, I am loving the colours and the feel.  It almost feels like I can see the plants growing!!  I thought I'd share some photos and as I was loading them on I had this Deja vu feeling and realised that a lot of the shots are similar to those taken this time last year.

Kaily Jessica

One of my dear friends gave birth to her second child on Monday... a little girl called Kaily. She is an absolute little sweetheart (I've already enjoyed a lovely cuddle).

I designed a little dragon cross stitch for her based on the pink Lamaze dragon I found for her.  Her mum is into dragons, and since her older brother had a sheep theme (based on his dad's previous occupation), I thought it only fitting that little Kaily should have something her mumma was into.

Ethan's library bag

You may remember, about this time last year I made my little niece a library bag which she has been using to take her bedding between home and childcare.  Well, it's nearly time for my gorgeous little nephew to start childcare, so my sister asked me to make little Ethan a bag like Amy's.
