Thanks Santa.

Miss5 got an origami book for Christmas, yesterday she asked me to make her something and it was this frog. My version 'Freddie' is a little more lopsided than the one in the book but he is still loved. We rescued the eyes from the discarded 'Eggy' who was thrown away yesterday too. 'Eggy' was seeds raised in an egg shell providing hair for the face on the side of it, made last year at pre school.

Freddie the frog

Yesterday evening As I was heading out to water the neighbours garden and my other neighbour was coming in with a bag of fresh corn cobs, Zucchini and sweet capsicum, he told me there was something big in my mail box ...

20 fat quarters of cool Nicey Jane!

I was so lucky to win this through my dear Santa letter and the wonderful give away that the fat quarter shop hosted in December. It is seriously beautiful fabric.

I have been working my way through a big catch up 'to do' list and am really happy with my progress, have a new resolve to get back in to less food waste practices. Plans to stock my made it shop with some great new items I have had ideas for in the paper and sewing realms.  Also big plans for some home decore /makeover projects this year. The type of home decore that require's mod podge, hot glue and staple guns not the type that require fabric wadding and sewing machines. ; )

I just have to finish working through my to do list.
A tutorial.
3 P.I.F's from last year.
A swap item.
A few cupboards.
Some floors and
some more Kitchen fun.
