I am back- anyone miss me..LOL
Well life has been just too busy to find time to blog, not sure where I should start but maybe back a week or so.
I had a great group of ladies here last weekend for their annual retreat, they all made gorgeous quilt tops and I took some great photos without my memory card in my camera, so I am really sorry i can't post a photo of you all, maybe Annie might send me a couple from the weekend to put into my Journal.
Then I Monday I drove down to Toronto which is about 3 & 1/2 hours drive from home to watch Sebastian play in the NSWCHS Rugby League selection trials, he was playing in the Presidents team, which is a team made up of players from all over the state who weren't selected in there regional teams for one reason or the other. The boys jelled well and Monday saw Sebastian have a brillant game, it was one of those days when being a Mum is all worth it, I was so proud of the way he played.
That night I stayed with my very good friend Janelle who lives only a few minutes from the footy oval, we had plans of maybe do some sewing or scrapbooking together but we only managed to chat all evening, which was lovely.
Back to the footy both Tuesday and Wednesday, apart from alot of injuries the boys played really well. - Janelle and I did work on a little scrapbooking Tuesday night, I started a mini album using photos I took at my Christmas Gathering last December, will share it at a later date.
Wednesday afternoon came the announcement of the NSW Open School Boys team to play at the Australian Championships and we were over the moon when Sebastian was selected as number 9 - Hooker for the team. All these years of hard work and the dream to be selected had come true. His best mate and school friend Angus was also named as No.8 along with another school mate Scott as No.14. They are just going to have the best time together, playing the Australian Championships, on their two week tour of Queensland in July.
Here is a photo of the 3 of them just after their selections, Sebastian is the one of the left. Not a very good photo as they could hardly stand still with excitement.
This is a photo of the latest quilt to be added to the shop samples (thanks Kate & Betty), it is made using 16 fat 1/4's of all floral fabrics with 4 different fabrics as the border. I have made up kits for this quilt which have been selling very well.There is also a new flannel quilt on its way back from being quilted so I will share it next week.

Geoffrey and I are off to tamworth tonight to play ten pin bowling with a group , we have a yearly get to gether so to nights the night. Not sure how the bowling skills will go but I am sure we will have fun.
Farrer first 13's played Tamworth High today in the University Sheild they won 74 -1.
I have a group of ladies here for a retreat over the weekend, so I better head up the paddock and find some fire wood, the nights are getting very cold so I think I will need to light the fire in the morning.
If you have made it all this way through this long post, thanks for reading I will try and make time over the next week to blog more often.
Until then thanks for dropping by, have a great weekend

Welcome back. Yes, you were missed! Congrats to Sebastian and his buddies, well done! Make sure you put the memory stick back in the camera this weekend... I say that tongue in cheek, you wouldn't believe how many times I've kicked myself over the very same thing! The shop sample is very pretty, that will be popular I am sure.

Way to Go Sebastian. Little did he know that the times he came to "chat" to the ladies in the shop would render him his first fan club.!lol
At least you had a camera, sort of, going over the rockies without one is totally sinful.
I check your blog each night and morning and have missed you. Thats where I get my inspiration from to continue patchworking.
Carnt wait till Christmas in July, am so excited to see everyone.
Cold!!!!! The spring bulbs are in full bloom here!
