Little Peek at Grandma and Me

"Grandma and Me" - it's coming along nicely - considering that I badly sprained a finger in the garden four weeks ago! When I think of the times (in a former life as a teacher) that I patted an injured child on the head, said "there there", and told them to sit in the shade and rest their hand!!!!! Never again! Painful! Ow! ow! ow! AND it's my stitching finger on my sewing hand!
But the swelling and bruising is disappearing and it's getting much better.
These are some pics of the blocks.
More will be revealed soon!
Here's the latest pic of Archie - very relaxed, watching "In the Night Garden". A very weird program ..... but that's another story!
Big news - I now have an eBay store. So for those of you who have a Paypal account, it's a very convenient way to purchase your Teddlywinks patterns! And there are discontinued patterns at cheaper prices!
P.S. It's raining again! (Good title for a song?!?)
♪♫♪ ♫ ♪♫
P.P.S. It's not unusual (Another song title?!?)
♪♫ ♪ ♫♪♫
P.P.P.S. Who'll stop the rain (Another song title?!?)
♪♫♪ ♫

Rain, rain, go away ..... (somebody stop me ....) ♪ ♫ ♪♫ ♪♫

Now you see him, now you don't.

These are my new little stitchery packs - "Quilting Friends", above, contains two teddy stitcheries, and "Little Birds", below, contains three designs. They are pre-printed on homespun, and it's up to you what you use them for - quilts, wall hangings, bags, quilt labels, cushions - the possibilities are endless!
They are not on the website yet, but in the meantime, you can mail, phone, email or fax your details through. There is a printable form on my website.
For those of you who have a Paypal account, I now have an ebay store where you can find all of my patterns (prices are the same as my website). You will also find some completed quilts and framed stitcheries.
Now you see him, now you don't! Archie was with us today. He loves chairs! Being under them, that is!
Such a happy little chappy!

Hearts that Love

Oh alright Sue - here it is. Such a pushy girl ...... "When does the other pretty one from this morning go up?" she said.
I'm waiting on the photos before I put together the patterns - should be this week. It isn't on the website yet but it's in my ebay store (same prices as the website and convenient for those of you who have a paypal account.

Fathers' Day

A new stitchery - red work birdies, with a very profound statement! I really believe that positive thoughts help us all through the tricky times.
It is not on the website yet, but it's in my ebay store. Yes - I now have an ebay store and all my patterns are listed and there are also a couple of completed quilts for sale.
Anyone living worldwide (outside Australia) will notice the added $2 postage cost. This is for the additional postage costs - the prices still remain the same as my website.
Fathers' Day - what a laugh! I managed to get a reasonable photo of the men - the girls are very much outnumbered - usually there is much mayhem and joking and I end up with a disastrous shot, but the boys behaved this time, although Archie was much more interested in Sean's hair! Such big kids.
Here's Sean playing with his monkeys - Tiramisue made them for him. I went to bed on Sunday night with the words "Five little monkeys jumping on the bed" going around and around in my head ..... wait 'til he realizes that we have the six little ducks as well ......
"Mama called the doctor, the doctor said ......"
