This is my belated toy society toy for the Christmas 2009 Drop Off. Isn't she just too cute? I have to say I was a little hesitant to say goodbye, but I think a little one might have picked her up already as she was not there this morning. That is my mum and Brigi in the background, playing on the swings at Copacabana beach.
I am not sure I will be posting anymore until the new year, so I would like to finish 2009 off by saying a huge THANK YOU to all my blog readers, some of you I know and many from all over the world. I have really enjoyed reading your comments and hopefully I have provided some entertainment to you all. This year has been a busy one and this blog has provided a creative outlet and kept me connected with the world. It is my 32nd birthday tomorrow, so the chaos starts a day early in our household. Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a happy new year and everything in between!! Bec xoxo

1. Hanging out with Brigi and swimming with ducks
2. Zooming around the Hawkesbury trying desperately to avoid thunderstorms in our boat while smelling like bait! Nick and I loved out couple of days out on the boat, we didn't catch much that was edible but the main thing is we made it home alive. I kid you not, there was lightning zapping right behind us as we zoomed back to Patonga Beach.
3. Did I mention Brigi - swimming - ducks??? I just hope she forgives me for her wearing glasses AND a hat when she is older.
4. Brigi giving a kangaroo at the Australian Reptile Zoo a smooch.
And there you pretty much have it!! There was lots of surf time at the rockpool at Copa but Brigi was so fearless I guess Nick and I were running around the whole time, so alas no photos. She managed to get into a swim ring and LOVED it, and when I say she loved it, I mean she was OUT THE BACK (I know it's in the rockpool but there was surf!) swirling around treading water. That girl is adventurous.
And last but not least, the beginning of my abstract block for Meg for the Beehive. I promise you Meg, it will be in the post this week, with a little salty air in the fabric.
I hope this post finds you all well, I can't wait to catch up on my blog reading too. Bec xo

Today has been a day of high nerves and excitement. My little sis had her first baby- a beautiful boy named Samson. This post has piles of photos in it because I can finally show you what I have been working on for 6 months- Sam's quilt! It is a star quilt, the pattern used from the first Material Obsession book.
The fabrics used were from the Lecien Folklore range, Moda Arcadia and Urban Chicks. It took some time finding appropriate colour matches.
Amy (my sis) was happy with the pressie (it was hard to give to her!) and Sam had a lovely snuggle under there. As my sister has just arrived home (yes, she gave birth 5 hours ago) she wasn't in a photo op moment but I will get some of her with little Sam.
Welcome to the world little one. Brigi can't wait to give you a kiss!

Miss B wanted me to let you know she was not in the mood for posing today (believe me, we tried!) and so the finished dress made from the Japanese seersucker is displayed by her "mirror girl" on her wardrobe door instead... she has a Sale of the Century hand waving pose happening don't you think?

And on that note I am committing to not buying any fabric for two whole weeks. I know, lame timeframe but that's all I can commit to!!!
