Finally Finished

Sewing has been a rare event in my life lately.  I've snatched a few minutes here and there, working away on some cushions for a friends little girls bedroom.  However, when the same project has been moved from the sewing table, to the ironing board, to the bed and back again numerous times, one tends to get a little tired of the fabric, the colours and even the whole project. I have visions of a sewing room where I don't have to put projects away, but can just leave them out, mid project ready for the next time I have a few minutes.

Anyway - I finally finish this prolonged project last week.  I actually had lots of fun, using pink fabric, putting hearts on them and making something girly.  Not something I get to do much of around here.

Our Weekend

We had a super busy, family filled weekend.  On Saturday we planted 199 trees along our little patch of creek.  Yes, not 200 but 199, don't ask me why, it's just how it worked out.  All the family was there plus a few extras helping out.  The kids did a great job, helping, playing together and generally enjoying being out in the sun as a big family.

I love warm spring weather and fun family projects. What a great combination.

Around Here

We are loving spring in so many ways

*getting out to clearing sales and grabbing some bargin old stuff
*playing in the rain now that it is slightly warmer
*practicing 'camping' on a 'rock' (apparently, not where I'd be putting my tent) for our week of camping coming up
*eating some super yummy and healthy choc surprise balls
*getting ready for a new season of veggie gardening with my new toy
*playing in the hose
*watching plants emerge

Heading off to plant out some seedling in our veggie garden this afternoon...
No doubt you'll be seeing the progress soon.
