Buck teeth

Gotta love the lolly teeth that came in Ben's Xmas stocking. We've had buck teeth and vampire teeth.

I've been meaning to photograph this gorgeous clock that Andrew made at school. It's solid, he spent forever smoothing it down, and it's a lovely piece of timber.

To do

Nyawh. Andrew's first to do list. He's trying for a job at Woolworths, he's bought some headphones for himself and now he just wants books on quantum physics - as you do!!!

Hopping mouse

Andrew has brought home his school projects. He made this gorgeous hopping mouse. It's a marsupial mouse, essentially a mouse-sized version of a kangaroo.


I have three Australian Parliament tablecloths home at the moment! They're old stock donated to my kids' school and I volunteered to wash them after the class dinner.

They're thick and white embossed with the fleur de lis pattern. There's faint black market pen in the hem to say what size table each will fit. I wonder what discussions and shenanigans happened at these tables.

Andrew and I tried for ages to try and make a cube out of these blocks. We failed, failed and failed. I laughed so much I cried!

Tiny Dancer 2012 by Bumble Beans
Tiny Dancer 2012, a photo by Bumble Beans on Flickr.

One of my blogger mates asked whether I was inspired by Bumble Beans. I didn't know what she meant, then realised that I'm following Bumble Bean's quilts on Flickr. Here's one of them. Isn't it amazing!

I think this is my favourite do far.


I've been getting up at 5 this week and sewing a block each morning then off to the gym or a run.

Let's see how long this burst of enthusiasm lasts.

The last few quilts I've started have been duds and I've given up on them. But I have my quilt group coming round this afternoon so ill talk to them about ways I could rescue the failure quilts!
