Miss H's Advent Calendar is finally finished - its late but not too late. The Mother found a really cool Advent Calendar on Pinterest which was done by
rammealvor.blogspot.com. She though that it was soooooo coolio that she would make one especially for Miss H. Miss H loves her new Advent Calendar.
The pegs are attached onto a plank of driftwood Miss H found during a walk.
Me with the candy canes. Now if I just bend down a little further I can grab one....
The cute little stamped pictures were done by Miss H.
The little red peg and it's candy cane are for Christmas Eve. :)
Yesterday Miss H, the Mother and I decorated the house and set up the Christmas tree.
I'm the star!!!
Hiding among the decorations!
I'm pretending to be a Christmas ornament.
This is our beautiful Christmas skirt!
This is one of Miss H's favourite decorations.
They all had such fun decorating the big tree. I felt a bit left out because I couldn't reach to hang any ornaments. So I insisted that I have my own little tree. The Mother kindly let me use her one that she has had since childhood... a VERY long time ago...
Isn't it sooo cute?!?
Look at some of the cute little decorations she has to decorate it!
All finished. I hope all those tiny presents underneath it are for ME!!!
Last week of school for Miss H. She finished Homeschool Sports on Monday. The Mother got a present for being on the committee.
Don't I look beautiful? I'm not sure about my new body though...
Sadly the mug was a little small for me... (Miss H says I should stop eating sooo much chocolate....yeah right!)
Miss H was playing around with some leftovers of one of the quilts The Mother is making. The scraps weren't even so Miss H got out the cutter... VERY bad idea. She was going to throw it in the bin but The Mother rescued it and made a mug rug for her new mug. She is SOOO clever!!!
Still a tad wonky... but that is what gives it character! :)
Summer is officially here! (Although it has been raining for the past two days...)
This is Forest. Isn't he a VERY handsome reindeer? (Almost as handsome as ME!) Forest is Miss H's 2013 Christmas decoration. Every year since she was little Miss H gets to choose a Christmas decoration and this year she choose dear Mr. Forest.
Here is Forest and Acorn (last Christmas' addition to Miss H's collection.)
Today is our day on the 'For the Boys' blog hop organised by the wonderful Madm Samm and Amy our cheerleader. Yipee for them!
The Walrus - Made by Miss H for The Geek.
Look at the COOLIO mustache quilt!!!
Miss H got the idea for her mustache quilt from the slogan going around on the internet and thought what a great idea to make it into a wall hanging for her brother's room. I have noticed him growing fur on his upper lip recently....just saying....
Can ya see me! I've got my mo on...tee...hee.... Don't worry Miss H I will be down in a mo... Ok, enough of the mustache jokes.
Miss H used raw-edged applique to sew on all the letters and the mo, and quilted in a diagonal slope. She had a lot of fun making it 'cause it kept making her laugh. Disturbing for a sheep to have an assistant who laughs at random times!
Gone Fishing - Made by The Mother for The Boss
I LURVE The Mother's Gone Fishing quilt. (Being a Sheep it is as close to fishing as I want to get...)
The Mother made it for her boy to hang in his study so he can look at it while working and wish he was on his boat.
The picture in the top left corner is of The Boss and the massive snapper he caught while on a boys weekend on his boat.
The Mother made the whole quilt out of scraps, scrap 9 patch, scrap border, scrap binding, it's SCRAP-TASTIC!!!
The Mother even had some scraps left over so she made a quilt for George at my request because I had promised him one.
What a cute mini quilt. Do you see the sheepie button?
Doesn't George look so coolio with his quilt!?
That's it from us. I hope you enjoyed looking at what we made. Don't forget to check out all the other blogs.
I'm back, lots of lovely pictures, each one with yours truly, ME!
I have some exciting news... I'm going to India next April. Miss H, the Boss, and Miss' H's friend Kit Kat are going there to visit Aunty S and they will be helping at the International School where Aunty S works and also going to the slums.
This Saturday they had a garage sale to raise money for their airfare.
Sitting on top of Jigsaw Mountain!
Now to show off something the Mother has made. The Mother made a red and white strip pieced quilt.
Me and Strawberry Maze.
She used a piece of African material for the backing.
Hanging on the grape vine...
Now all it needs is a label.
Miss H and the Mother will be hard at work sewing for the "For the Boys" blog Hop by Madam Samm. Their day is the 6th of November. See you back here then. :)
Sorry for not blogging for awhile, I have been on an adventure to the South Island. Neither Miss H nor I had been there before and we both agree it is SO much prettier than the North Island.
We flew down to Christchurch for a friend of the Mothers birthday party and then we drove a campervan all the way back up to Auckland. We had five days.
At the Orana Wildlife Park.
We had so much fun feeding the giraffes and seeing all the other animals. The otters were really funny.
The Kaikoura coast is beautiful. We went whale watching in Kaikoura and saw a sperm whale and a blue whale. There are only 2,000 blue whales in the whole world and I got to see one.
This was my seat the whole way. Best seat in the van.
Miss H recently got a new lens. She had fun trying it out.
How many seals can you find?
This place is a nursery for baby seals. They play there while their mothers are in the ocean finding food. There were 7 the day we went. Two fighting, one fast asleep, and the others playing in the water.
The scenery was amazing. This is in the Queen Charlotte Sounds.
Picton is where you catch the ferry from the South Island to Wellington (the capital) in the North Island.
Just recently the North Island and the South Island have become the official names of the two islands, they have always been called that but they were never official. Also they have been given official Maori names as well. Their Maori names are Te Ika-a-Māui (the fish of Maui) for the North Island and Te Waipounamu (the water(s) of greenstone) for the South Island
There was chocolate cake on the ferry. Delish-ous!
Yes, Miss H, I can read. But I'm SPECIAL so I can sit here!
Nearly at "sunny" Wellington.
Miss H, please don't let me fall...
Driving home on the last day. I was a VERY tired sheepie.
They thought I was fast asleep so they tried to sneak some M&M's. As if I wouldn't know when there was chocolate around. Mmmmm... yummy.
We all had such a COOLIO time. I can't wait until my next adventure.
