Missing Home

So we have been up at Nanny and Poppys for 11 days now.  Emeline ended up having to have a big operation on her teeth, so it has been a very stressful time for us all.

Nanny and Poppy live up in the mountains on a property that backs onto the national park, it is so beautiful and peaceful up here.  There home is an original old log home and it has the most beautiful feel to it, the only photos I could find on Dads computer for this post were ones with the birds that come to visit on the verandah.

But we are missing home.

Or home is old and falling down and we have finally decided to take the plunge and start renvoating.

We are not surrounded by lush green rainforest and mountains.  Our place is flat and open.

But it is home and it will be good to get back.

Have a great day.

Excitement in the household

The girls are excited as we are going to visit Nanny and Poppy today for a few days, trying to get them to do anything this morning is useless.

I am also excited because one of my little birds has been picked to be shown here, this is a first for me.  I think Made It is a wondeful place to sell all your crafty things and I buy most of my presents from them now, it is a great forum for artists/crafty people to showcase their stuff.  Thankyou Made It.

Thankyou for stopping by for a visit.
Have a great day

Good Morning

Good Morning everyone it is about 0 degrees here this morning, it feels colder to me.  The girls are still tucked up in bed where it is nice and warm  Emeline just stuck her head out of the room (heated of course) and decided it was too cold for her to get up yet, so I sent her back to bed for abit, we had another bad night with the teeth so she is cranky again.  I finally managed to get a couple of little things finished off yesterday and also managed to cut out some new birds I will be working on this week.  I love my birds I do enjoy making every single one of them.

I also dragged out my poor negelected spinning wheel, I have been asked to do a spinning display this weekend at the Boolba wool show, this is something new for them, and for me, espically since I haven't done any for awhile  now, so I made myself sit downand have a practice warm up on it.  I think I need a bit more practice I'm afraid, lucky for me  my sister (who also spins) is going to come with me.

In the lead up to Bush Christmas I have been getting back into the earring making, I sold over 100 pairs of these pretty little earrings last year, and I cut out and made some more little felt bird embellishments.  I have added these little things to my Made It store.

Have a fantastic day

Clever Sister on Made It

So my little sister has been busy creating again, here is her latest.

You can find these gems, here :-)

I love these coasters, might have to put an order in for Christmas presents.

And I have just signed up for a teatowel swap, so these may be good.

Have a great weekend

Another Busy Week Gone

Another week has passed by, it is hard to believe it is Saturday again.  This week has been a pretty rough one in the Mocker household, Emeline has been getting 2 of her big back teeth and every night she lies in bed screaming and rolling around in pain.   It's hard for us because we've given her pain medicine (I have even resorted to trying bonjela, again) and you've done everything you can to make her comfortable and you know she's suffering but there is nothing you can do except give her lots of cuddles.  Hopefully they come through soon and the pain will stop.

So this post has no pictures this week, just wanted to stop and say Hi to everyone, I haven't had time to stop until now.  The girls are still asleep, hubby's gone to work, washing is on and I finally have time to stop and breathe.

Have a great weekend.

Finally the weekend

We've had a very busy week in the schoolroom this week.  When you miss a couple of days, it feels like you will never catch up, but with a little extra work we managed it.  Also with hubby away and having to do extra farm chores it felt like the weekend would never come.  With everything going on and the girls constantly teasing each other it didn't leave me much time to be crafty, but I did to make a couple of sweet little needle cases.

We have a party to go tonight, the 2nd one this year, we had one last Saturday and now another one.
Hope you have a great weekend,

Happy Tuesday

I never know what to write for my titles, I sit down to write and my mind just goes blank and so I end up repeating myself, anyway.  I have been busy creating a couple of scarfs this week, and something new for me some little felt birdie embellishments. 

I thought these birdies would look great on some cards or scrapbooking, I will have to get busy and test them.

I found some more UFO's I thought I could start work on this week.

These poor stitcheries have been languishing in my sewing basket for about 5 years now, I  remember starting on them not long after Emeline was born, I think they deserved to be finished and made into something.

Have a fantastic Day
