One returns, One leaves, One Library!

Hello Peeps, 

I'm back at last!!!

Miss H finished her last days of university for this year last week. Then the Mother came down and helped us pack up and return to Auckland. Next was the big tidy and fitting everything back into place. Whew!!!

But now I am back and ready to show you some projects Miss H has been working on in between everything she has been doing. And of course Snowy will still show what the Mother has been up to - other than tidying (the place is still a mess and it is all the Mother's - hee...hee...hee...)

Now that she is back in her own room, Miss H set about turning it into her dream room - a library bedroom!


These book shelves contian her DVD's, CD's, childhood books from when she was in primary school, animal books and magazines, romance, and Biblical books. 
Can you see her vintage camera collection? The Brownie camera was her grandmothers (it may still work but Miss H doesn't know how to use it...).


Of course Miss H has a supply of quilting/stitchery books and magazines. They are supervised by Chester who would not let me anywhere near them in case I slobbered on them. 


This whole bookshelf is devoted to Miss H's classics collection - she LURVES classics. 
The books sitting on the table to the right of the picture are the books Miss H got for university. 


These folders are chocka-block full of readings from some of Miss H's courses this year. Whew, it was a lot of reading (and a lot of boredom and chocolate eating for me...)!


And one of the best parts - the window seat! This area has all the picture books that Miss H has started collecting (and maybe a couple she pinched from the Mother's bookshelf...).

Finally, some big BIG BIG news!

The Geek's childhood friends - he no longer plays with them (just letting you know so the Geek doesn't get annoyed at Miss H). I rescued them and they are MY friends now and won't be returning to the dungeon I dug them out from!

Mousey and Mammoth's owner - who is the Geek - is moving out of home for the first time. He has a job in Wellington (NZ's capital) and so he's moving down there before the 5th of December which is his first day. 
Next year when Miss H goes back to Tauranga the Mother will have no children at home - for the first time in over 21 years!

Happy Bee-Day to the Mother

Hello Paw-Pals,



Today is the Mother's birthday so I dressed up in my bee suit to wish her a happy day! 


I hope your day is so bright and happy that it blinds you like I am blinded by the sun - or is that the glow from the Mother!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!


Slobbery Kisses,
Snowy! Woof!

Oh, Crumbs!

Hello Paw-Pals,

Er…Miss H what are you doing with those little scraps of fabric?  You should throw them in the bin.  What?   You are sewing them together?  That’s funny.  What are you going to make?


Looks like Miss H had a fun time sewing tiny bits together and then embroidered a letter on one of the pieces and gave them to the Mother….


And she made them into a little quilt and called it ‘Crumbs”.


Quilters really are quite strange.  They sew with crumbs.  I would just eat them!



Slobbery Kisses,
Snowy!

Organised October: Thread Catchers

Hello People,


I am Luna and today I will be doing the blog post because the faithful (haha) dog decided to leave for a walk. 


So the Mother followed me around putting random fabric baskets next to me.
I am NOT amused


So, let me tell you about these thread catching baskets: The red one is the Mother's and the blue one is Miss H's. 
They were a special gift from a quilting friend of theirs when she heard that they didn't have one. 



A big THANK YOU from them to the lovely, lovely lady. 

Purrs From,
Luna(tic)

Organised October: Reading Pillows!

Hello Peeps,

For today's Organised October we have some kits for reading pillows.

Miss H went to some friends' birthday party (triplets - 2 girls and a boy - and their sister). The Mother taught them how to quilt last year and they are creative so Miss H and the Mother decided to make up some packs for them to make their own Reading Pillows.

So, the Mother wrote up a pattern for them. Below is some of the progression photos we included with the instructions.


Here is some of the Mother's stitching.


The front. I love that front fabric - though Snowy doesn't! Hee hee hee!


I don't know what this is a picture of... um... a pin in fabric...
 This is what happens when Miss H lets the Mother take the pictures... 


The finished pillow! Complete with Miss H's favourite book, of course! 

The Mother and Miss H made up the kits for the triplets and their sister. 


Each fabric was carefully chosen according to the colours they like.
