Life has been super busy...  and in the next week, starting on Friday we have 6 birthdays!!  Next week is going to be crazy busy and I still have to decide on cakes and what not for my two!  I have booked a massage for the following week and am HANGING out for it already...

Amidst all the work there has been some play.  On Saturday night 5 of us went out for a bloggy dinner and it was so much fun!  These bunch of ladies are fantastic and I loved meeting Deb and Lisa.  You can read about our evening here, here and here.

The last few evenings I've also done a bit of sewing.  I've borrowed Cat's Modern Blocks book and am slowly going to work my way through it and will have a go at the blocks that I like the look of.  Except for the first one, the other 3 are the results so far.  I doubt I'll have much time for anything in the next couple of weeks!

And I have finally bought a quilting ruler.  I am in love with it - she's my new best friend : )
Alleyways - not a big fan of this one...
