Maybe I will keep going with the bags for the boys teachers, but make a dove for each of Maya's carers at creche. They were pretty easy to make, and I used bag batting in the wings and attached them with a button so that the wings can be positioned, and embroidered the eyes, because, well, I have no black beads. Nice to use what I have at home.

This week Ayden also had to appeal at school to skip Year 11 Geography and go into Yr 12. A process that had to involve his English teacher, History teacher, House teacher and Head of Geography to support him to the Head of Senior School. A big process that occurred unfortunately as Ayden missed the required B+ in English by 3 marks. All sorted though. Tough school.

* Text while walking around a small plane hanger and walk straight into a wing..
* Let your teenage child "register" a computer game online ... then it downloads your last internet allowance for the month
* Tell people how you got that big cut on your forehead because they laugh and laugh and laugh
* and take a big breath, because Ayden passed his learner drivers test and now he is eying off the car...

Tomorrow is a day off work for Ballarat Cup Day, and it's my very favorite holiday ... because the kids don't get it. They are all off at school and creche, except Ayden who has an exam in the afternoon, but I will be shoving him out the door to "revise". A day off for me!!!
I've got a new rotary cutter blade ready to go.

Unfortunately my photo's were very quick but Jeanette's are much better on her lovely blog. I had the hint that Jeanette likes dark red, and luckily ... polka dots!
For Jeanette I made Nelly's Sewing Bag and Bug in a Bag Ladybug pincushion, designed by Rosalie Quinlan, and the needle case designed by Cinderberry Stitches. My sneak peek at my stippling was to be a sewing machine mat (or mini quilt). I love that Jeanette has filled her bag with her knitting already :)
Thanks again Helen for organising the swap. Heaps of fun again in 2009.

Next, Ayden and I have been lucky enough to be selected to review a lighting sample each for our study and sewing spaces. Great timing Maree, lamps ready for exam week!
