Where did April go???

Is it me or does this year seem to be flying!!??? Goodness it’s almost May – the 5th month – I’m just not keeping up lol.
Maybe it’s because I’ve been doing so much lately I haven’t noticed the days disappearing before my very eyes he he.
I took my gawjus Mum and her friend Jill (who’s over for a year from the UK) up to Mt Tamborine – we were blessed with perfect weather that day :o)!!!! We found some fabulous little shops including this Fairy Shop – don’t you love the mushroom critters??!!
And this one had treasures inside and out ….
We also visited the local distillery – they have some delish liqueres, schnapps and vodka here – I must say, we have visited this place more than once he he.
I’ve also been doing some stitching … Bear (DD2) needed a little mat for under her laptop on her desk so I made this for her from a panel I was given for Christmas … isn’t it c-hoot (okay sorry – that was a shocker lol)!!!
and here’s a sneaky peek at something else I’ve made – mmm roses and lace and a pretty bow – love it :o)!!April 2011 142More of this one later though – I still need to write up the pattern (not my favourite part he he)!!
Here’s something that made me smile this week – Sharon W made this quilt from my “Dragonflight” quilt-as-you-go pattern recently and she very kindly sent me a pic of her beautiful quilt….Quilting 2010 001 Oh I just love it in pink – thanks so much Sharon for sharing, I really enjoy seeing what people make from my patterns :o)!!
Well I’m off to get some hand-stitching ready to do while I’m watching the Royal Wedding ……….. have a fabulous weekend!!
