August OPAM Finishes!

This month I have three finishes.
One green Christmas decoration.
And a red Christmas decoration.
Making Spirits Bright hanging.

I've got some other finishes but as they are 
secret sewing, you'll just have to wait!

Thanks to Peg and Kris for keeping us on track.

Quilty Stitches All Stitched!

 
Our Quilty Stitches Sampler Along has come to an end. 
It has been great getting back into cross stitch.
 
I have now finished Block 16, the Good Cheer block.
 
Here they all are. Now to give it a wash and a good press.

I had a square shabby frame that I thought I would use but it does nothing at all for the stitching, so I'll have to go looking for a different frame.

Thank you to Corey for this fun stitch a long.
I have really enjoyed stitching along with you. 
You can see some of the other girl's samplers here.

This Post Is Brought To You By The Letter "P"

Congratulations to Mitchell on getting 
his Probationary Licence.

Mitchell worked hard to change over to a manual car 
after doing over 200 hours in my auto. We never doubted you could get your manual licence, Mitchell. 

No school run for me today! Mitchell is doing it!

A TV Star or Two?

Do you remember back in May when Mitchell partnered Lucy for the Deb Presentation (see post here)?
At the time, Lucy's mum, Lisa, was taking part in a Channel 7 show called Bringing Sexy Back. Lisa's aim was to look great for Lucy's big night. She lost 40kg and had a makeover. She looked fabulous.
Last night Lisa's episode was on and finished with the big reveal (you can see the show here). Right near the end of the show, they go to the ball and show Lucy dancing with her mother. Can you see who is in the background?
 First off we see Mitchell dancing.
With me!
Mitchell was so excited to see himself on TV. 

Sorry the pictures are a bit blurry. 
I took photos of the computer screen!

What Quilt Block Are You?

I saw this fun quiz over at Sharon's (Vrooman's Quilts) blog. 
 The What Quilt Block Are You? quiz is by the 
 You answer some questions and it tells you which quilt block represents the real you.


 I took the quiz and am a Flying Geese block.

"If something's worth doing, it's worth doing right! 
You might seem shy at first, but once people get to know you they can't help but love you."

So what block are you? Head over here to find out. 
By the way, Sharon is a Log Cabin!
