today's creative play is more just watching rather than creating :(

I have been struck down by a horrid flu and have spent this week feeling pretty ordinary in deed! I even went back to bed yesterday after the kids left with hubby for school- I cant remember the last time I slept during the day!!

Anyhow I hope everyone else is well- I have included a shot of my pile "lounge quilts" - as I have been spending  a lot of time under them of late. They are are varying sizes - to suit mamma bear, papa bear and baby bears, a few that Indy has made and with a range of internal wadding from cotton, wool & cotton blend.  They are all well used and well washed and were never made to be show pieces but to add a bit of warmth and love for the kiddies!
Next up is some more vintage sheets for the swap which I need to get cut up into FQ and in the mail- they wont be too far away Ange!!  And one of my vintage tea towel cushions- another fav item of mine.

And last but not least- my lovely postie delivered these great fabrics for me to get busy with- as soon as I am feeling up for it!!

  2. Why thank you for your inspiring words dear rosie!!- I am sucking it up and back into it trying to create a new pattern but am just not too sure if its working...hmmm although if it is ok with you I may just skip standing around in the cold at footy training tonight-& I will even be returning to work tomorrow....Such a sweet girl!! xo

  3. Hope you feel better soon, Courtney...
    love your gorgeous stash of quilts.
    You are a sewing machine!
    NO, I don't actually mean you are a sewing MACHINE, i MEAN you are a gun.
    You know what I mean!

  4. Oh dear...I hope you feel better soon.

  5. Hey Courtney, sorry to hear you're not well. Hope you're feeling better soon. Shame you have to go to work tomorrow though. Love the new fabrics too. Take care. xo

  6. Your pile of quilts is beautiful. Hope you feel better soon.
