The second present I've bought mum for Christmas is this owl cushion. It's Not very big. I know she likes to have a cushion for back support and she's always loved owls. This is by Sarah Saliba of

Sitting on the eggs


Love the fabric they've used for these eggs.

Baby bird

Only his mother would love him! Just cracked out of the egg and all googly eyes.

Quilt for mum

I bought this quilt for mum for Christmas. I've been looking at these quilts all year. It's by Nellie and Fred
This quilt is called let's collect the eggs.


Ben's made himself a 'chaw' book. So whenever I ask him to do something he writes it in this tiny notebook first. So glad were paying the big bucks to send him to school - maybe one day he'll learn to spell!!

Next quilt

I've made about 30 of these blocks so far. They'll be latticed around a white block. Hope that makes sense? I spread out all the blocks out so far and it looks so fresh. It'll be my to- do project for January.

Platypus by Psycho Hamster
Platypus, a photo by Psycho Hamster on Flickr.
We spent more than three hours paddling a river yesterday, with a few baby rapids thrown in. We were trying to see a platypus in the wild. The guy who dropped us all off said that David Attenborough's film crew had used the pool we were starting from to capture their platypus footage. Still didn't see one, but had a great paddle.

New cactus

Here's the new cactus - Boogle - long may he live.


Granny bought Ben a cactus a year ago. He called it Snem and overwatered it for a bit, then it was upended a few times, then forgotten. It died, and Ben's been keeping the remains of Snem on his bedside table. Tucking him in this week I saw Snem and made the mistake of saying it was Snem's skeleton. Ben's bottom lip trembled and he got a bit teary. Granny bought him a new cactus today, so all is good again. Here's a pic of the skeleton...
