a bunch of stuff




I was doing so well yesterday - got lots of housework done and even basted my Blogger's BOM quilt in the afternoon... by 5pm I was losing my mind and the sleep deprivation totally caught up to me. I went a bit mental and then I was asleep by 8pm. God only knows what I'd do without my husband - he's pure angel!

So I might find some time at some point to get this baby quilted. It isn't basted too well but that's what happens when you're rushing to do it with a baby asleep and 'help' from a cute 3 yr old girl!



I know some of you will tell me I'm crazy for even thinking about sewing but honestly it felt SO good to make some progress and sewing is my 'me' thing. Being a mum always comes first but being 'Lucy' is important too!

I made these Japanese x + o blocks for Sue,  our first queen in the Simply Solids Bee, before Lois was born... now just need to get to the post office!



Over the past couple of weeks more feather blocks have been floating in from my lovely bee mates...



 top row: Janet and Di
bottom row: Collette and... I don't know!!! I've totally lost track!! Shout out if this is yours!! May (so sorry!! - thanks Helen!!)

They are all gorgeous, thank you ladies and forgive me for not keeping up!


I also received this AWESOME bundle of vintage sheet FQs - huge thanks to Mary for organising it all and doing the hard work! Check out her blog and I'd highly recommend joining in if she ever runs another one ;)



Lastly check out my girl with her totally natural (and I can't stop it!!) amazing mohican hair do. I'd literally have to put gel on it to stop it from sticking up!! It has a mind of it's own ;) Super cute though!

  4. I TOTALLY get the 'me' time thing - you're not crazy at all! Nap time equals sewing time in this house, be buggered if I'm going to clean instead (which is probably why our house is a permanent bomb site...) That hair is brilliant!

  6. Her hair is so adorable!!
    I was never able to nap when the babies did, all I could think of was a list of things to do!
    And those solid blocks are brilliant!!

  7. Aw, look at that little cutie! So glad you're getting some sewing done, it'll keep you sane! I love your Simply Solids bee blocks - gorgeous! As are the feather blocks!
    P.S. I think that feather is from May http://www.flickr.com/photos/66173072@N02/8147513926/in/pool-scrappysewbeeit/

  9. Aw, don't get her. I love that hair! Cannot believe how much you are getting done with a new baby and sleep deprivation. Love the blocks.

  10. I went a bit mental with sleep deprivation myself yesterday and I don't have a newborn! I do have hair that sticks up like that at times though... ;o)

  17. Totally understand the need for a little Lucy time, you're doing brilliantly. Love you x and o's for Sue, I'm sure she'll be delighted with them. Lois has a style all her own, people pay good money for that look! : )

  18. Whoa! Look at all of that fun stuff :-) I love those Japanese x + o blocks and those feathers. Two things I've been meaning to try. Those vintage sheets are beautiful, too :-)

  19. Oh you remain amazing, as it the hair!

  20. I had three girls and at one time or another they all had hair that did that. So cute. We used to call it "Who" hair like little Cindy Loo Who on A Christmas Carol with Scrooge.

  21. Check out that hair! She makes me smile.

    Love your blocks in general, but that solid x+o is just spectacular. Really like the one star in the bottom row of your first photo that's kind of split in half. Cool idea.

  22. She's adorable and I love the baby quilt.

  23. Adorable- Lois and the baby quilt! It SO important to have some ME time- and you are being productive at the same time! So good for you!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Lois has her own style, that's for sure! Enjoy your ME time, its a good thing!

  25. Sweet Mary, that is the cutest bairn I have ever seen! Loving all the blocks - and ANY mum will understand the need for some indulgent time!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Loving the baby mohawk - absolutely adorable!

    Good for you for managing some sewing. Sometimes it's needed so you can have a little time to yourself :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Helen's correct of course! It is May's block!

    Love what you're doing and yes keep it up if only a little - sewing is SEW you Lucy!

    What a cute little mohawk - a trend setter if ever I saw one!

  28. I think that your quilt is lovely and I hope you have a few minutes here and there to quilt it. The baby is adorable and It is wonderful that your family just sends you to sleep sometimes.

  29. She's growing up so quickly! Glad you are getting some you time! My baby girl's hair sticks straight up too-- we say it is electrifying ;)

    ReplyDelete
  30. My youngest still has hair like that! But only on the sides of the top not the middle(hope that makes sense) I think he'll be getting introduced to hair product very soon! Love those x & + blocks, it makes me regret not joining the bee like I was going to. Glad to hear you're getting a little time for yourself, you deserve it :)
