Pink and other things

I, like a lot of other people, love the colour pink (well I work with two other people who love pink and my friend Di has bought the same vaio) so when I wanted to buy a laptop computer the choice was easy. So here is my beautiful, delicious PINK Sony Vaio.I have been having a great time paper piecing my Pie and Tart BOM quilt. I love hand work that I can do at night. I am getting my BOM from Sue Daley's Patchwork with Busy Fingers and I am so happy with it - the fabric, tips etc. are just wonderful.

I love having things hanging on the wall in my sewing room - here are two of my favourite dolls - an angel doll that I bought at 'Hail Mary I'm Home' in Sydney and the adorable Bubbles which I bought from a fabulous shop in Soho, New York. I just love them.

I am a very happy mum - our daughter came home for a visit which was absolutely wonderful and our son, who was on holiday in Florida, got to watch the Space Shuttle launch which is something he has always dreamed about.
I have a few goodies that I have been buying on etsy arriving soon so I will write about them when they arrive. I can't wait.

My sewing room

I haven't updated my blog for a few weeks. I have been working most weekends and with the devastating bushfires in Victoria and the floods in North Queensland I haven't really felt like blogging.
At the end of January I finally got around to giving my sewing room a good clean out and I am happy to say that even now in March it is still tidy.
I am still enjoying myself working on my polka dot girls and I have started my Pie and Tarts BOM. It is a lot of fun as I really enjoy paper piecing.
