Time Flies ,A Green Summer and all that, and (OOHH!!! I have a surprise)

Love the new Oliver and S pattern book
Our green garden,
Wow where did February go,the girls have settled into school well (although we are often late)and have both had the chance to be class leaders and both have recieved Merit awards. The summer here in Griffith has been much milder and definately wetter than normal,and i ain't complaining,still a bit too warm for this old Highland girl but OH !!the GREEN,everything is so green and alive here so beautiful, normally everything is dry and dead by summers end, you can never water enough and our water restrictions have been lifed too.I wish i could say i've achieved alot this past month, but life does not always go to plan, everyone except the twins have had tummy bugs and flu. So now the dust has settled i'm working on a major clearance of all my sewing fabrics and craft, i have some new great ideas and projects i want to try,so out with the old and in with the new, also thinking of retiring from the fabric yoyo making bussiness , i've been making them for over two years now and think it's time for a change a, they are very pretty and fun to make but take alot of work and preparation but not repayment, besides i still havent made anything for myself, have always wanted to make a yoyo quilt.One thing on the top of my new project list is to make the girls these too cute TUTUs and Red Riding Hood cape from the Oliver and S Little things to sew book, i just love their patterns and fabric line
