Coin Purse

I started stitching this little purse at Nundle on our first night there. We were all a little excited and no one wanted to go to bed early.

I think there a rule - that you can't go to bed before midnight, when you are having a sleep over LoL

I had most of the stitchery finished before we left, I just needed to finish off the centre this week before putting it together. 
 Opps, should have given it an iron first before taking the picture....

As i was attaching the zipper to the linen I realised I hadn't finished the flowers on the shoes - I nearly didn't fix it, but I'm so glad I did it looks so much better!

I'm really happy with how it turned out - not bad for a first attempt at putting in a zipper!

More TTS Progress..

With the children on school holidays, it's amazing how quickly I manage to get my jobs done once I get home from work.. No running sporty here and Chicka there and back again. 

So with all that spare time I have managed to sit and get a few blocks done for my TTS quilt 

The wreath with boarders 1 and 2

Harry Potter....

We are huge Harry Potter fans in this house, so before the exhibition finished at the Powerhouse Museum on the
9th April we headed to Sydney.

We left home early to our first fog of the year........ means winter is on its way brrrrr

We had a family picture before heading in - how exciting!
It looks like we are in the great hall.

Unfortunately you were not allowed to take photo's inside the exhibition, but I did manage to get a quick picture just as we were leaving the souvenir store.
(Sporty was soooo embarrassed - but that's what mums are for LoL)  

The exhibition was fantastic! I was amazed to see so much detail in all the wands and the dress robes worn by some of the main characters - the movies really don't do them justice.

We spent a couple of hours wandering around and looking at all the items. On our way out the night bus turned up ..... Chicka was ready to go for a spin!

Until Next Time - Happy Stitching xox
