The twins are going to be kept in hospital for another week until they can feed by themselves (they're still being tube fed intermittently), so I have my other nephews as house guests for another week. Mr CurlyPops has just taken them to the park to play footy so I can do some washing and put a nice roast topside beef in the oven for tea.
I have a new found appreciation for all the crafty chicks out there who can look after the kids, the household, work, and make crafty things as well...... I'm struggling to keep the house clean, and keep the washing under control (I've only tackled the kids washing, I haven't even looked at ours). The crafting has gone way out the window.
Just keep that in mind when you look at the photos that I'm going to post......
This is where all my crafty projects begin.....on my kitchen bench. At the moment, the cutting mat is completely covered in stuff but I've finally cut my piece of fabric that I bought from Anna Laura and I'm in the process of stapling it over a canvas to make a wall hanging.
Once things are ready to be sewn, they move along the production line to the sewing nook that is in the spare room.....this week the spare room is being used by the kids so the bunks and the port-a-cot are full!
My mum was getting rid of this cupboard last week when she was having a clean out, so I put my hand up and Mr CurlyPops bought it home for me. I'm going to use it to store my fabric stash.
At the moment, I just shoved everything in and put a child lock on it so it doesn't all end up being pulled out and strewn all over the floor. My intention is to go back and sort it out properly one of these days (notice I used the word intention - it will probably never get done).So that's it, back to the washing for me....have a happy Sunday!
Whoop! I forgot to add.....for more of this is, go and check out Angela's blog and thanks to Quilting Mick for this weeks theme...yah!
