Goodbye April...April showers bring May flowers

Last month just flew by...there just doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day.  Well not enough sewing hours that  is.

I went a little crazy sewing up cushions...I made nearly thirty, I got carried away with all the lovely fat quarters I had bought.

Our market day was very windy.  My friend Karen (on the right) & I were chasing flying pincushions and holding down the tablecloth and hanging onto the umbrella. But the day was very sunny and we had a nice time drinking coffee, eating sausages in bread from the Scouts next door and having a good chit chat.

I made a batch of these little patchwork pincushions, I love playing around with all the different fabric colours and patterns.

I cleaned my daughter's bedroom and rearranged some furniture while she was at school.  I love doing that and then seeing my kids faces when they come home from school.  She's permanently borrowed some cushions from my "Gozi & Pop shop" for her bed!

April has also been a great time to be out and about in Melbourne.  Having a break from sewing, my friend and I took our dogs for a walk around Albert Park lake, which is also part of the Grand Prix circuit. We had a nice coffee and enjoyed the beautiful view of Melbourne city skyline from the Carousel Cafe.

Footy season is alive and well in Melbourne. 

 My son was lucky enough to play on the MCG at half time on Saturday night thanks to Auskick.  
Such a great atmosphere.  I don't think he realises how lucky he is to have these opportunites.

I've also been getting up early a couple of times a week to walk with my friend and we take our dogs and have been enjoying the sunrises.

Only one more month of Autumn (which is my favourite season) so I hope to enjoy it as much as I can before it gets too cold.  How has your month been going?

  1. You have had a busy month! Your stacks of cushions look great - I'm not surprised your daughter has "Borrowed" some!
