Life is Beautiful...

...go check out the giveaway at Helen's, for this stunning quilt pattern.
My quote?

Be brave, life is joyous! - from a Leunig t-shirt I once owned, purchased from the Wilderness Society.
And I'm in definite need of 5 mintues - I've just spent 3 nights away with my two kids and haven't had a moment to myself for about 90 hours! Bring it on...

Hotter than Sydney!

It was 28 degrees yesterday in Hobart (and forecast for 30 today) - hotter than Sydney!! So the kids had their first go in the paddling pool for the year.
Kelvin was loving it...
...and then decided he'd try to fit into that saucepan - unlikely given those thighs!!
I'm home sick today with the sorest of sore sore throats (can barely swallow) so an email from Amy at Badskirt was a lovely surprise - I won her pre-Japan fat quarters giveaway!! I've only just received some fabric that I bought from Amy. I'm loving the Cogsmo and the duckies are very cute.
I've also been op-shopping again and found some more fabulous vintage linen - thinking pillowcase dresses and lounge pants (aka pyjama bottoms).

Blogtoberfest - Trev does his best Delvine Delaney!

Blogtoberfest is over.
Thanks to everyone for dropping by and leaving comments, and to my old and new followers! There were 100+ entries into the giveaway (and Trev has done his best Delvine Delaney and drawn the winner in an old-fashioned out-of-the-hat selection process)!
And the winner is Jeanette - keep an eye out in the post for a parcel wining it's way to you.
And I think that Mel needs a "most consistent" award for commenting almost everyday. Mel is one of the new people I have met through Blogtoberfest - so it has well and truely been worth my while signing up for the challenge!
This is also my 100th post! No giveaway for this post but maybe for my 111th post!! Keep an eye out.
