It seems to have been quiet at our house but there are things going on in the background. But one problem for me in the blogging world is that my computer has died. It just means that my bank of photos are inaccessible at the moment. And the the two quilting projects I am working on are for swaps so they have to stay secret for a little while longer anyway. 

My husband has a new computer so I can get onto the internet to read blogs, which is good so I don't feel overwhelmed. The photo I've added is one from his computer where the children were playing with the photo program. What I want to know is why do children always think that sticking their tongues out makes for a funny photo. Just trying to find one without a totally silly face was hard but I found one of my little sunshine. When he smiles it just brightens up my day.

P.S. This is in reply to a comment from Quiltycat, which was left on my last post, one where I couldn't reply. The shop with the fabric wasn't the one at Geebung but at Bracken Ridge. I have nearly finished a top from one lot of fabric and I have also made a baby quilt top so at least my purchases haven't just been added to the stash.

Hi Lynda! I just received your Mini Booty Swap quilt and.....I am still tingling about it! It is absolutely perfect - the colours, the pattern (I love 'braid'), the tiny quilting stitches! When I opened the packet I yelled 'Beautiful!' (not to anyone in particular, just because!)and got goosebumps all over. It truly is the most wonderful present - thank you so much. The extras are a gorgeous addition to my stash. Again, thanks so much for all the effort and thought that went into this project - making things for others does take up a lot of 'brainspace', but I hope you are as pleased with your work as I am. I laughed and laughed at your son's naming of the quilt 'Tom' (where did that come from?), and I'm not sure I can call it anything else now. I hope your computer gets better soon, so we can all see more of your great sewing. Keep in touch!
